Blogger Connections 3 Link Up

WOW !!What a week. I enrolled Khloe into the Girl Scouts and on Friday she becomes a Daisy. I am so happy, excited and nervous all at the same time. I hope its not too much for her. She stated school last month for the first time AND becomes a scout all ruffly at the same time. I bought her everything she needed to start with and I can’t wait to start on badges.   ON WITH THE LINK UP!!

The following for your consideration:
1. I wish I had found Eastons Mama and her post back when I was going to online school.  Her recommendations for things I should have done, may have kept me in school longer.  However the school I attended said I could work at my own pace and that was NOT the case.

2. All this time I was worried about how I was going to make cushions for my pallet seating outside and then I find over at the blog Old House to New Home, it is easier than I thought.

Propresser Stainless Steel Garlic Press from Orblue Review

Over the three day weekend I got to try out my new Propresser Stainless Steel Garlic Press from Orblue. We used it to make an amazing meal of Lobster Tail with garlic butter and a Filet Minon. We needed a treat just for ourselves so I decided food was the cheapest way to appreciate each other. We like to cook together.

I used it and my first thought was “ This is what I have been missing in my kitchen, and didn’t even know it.” This would make a great gift to some one you know who loves to cook. You can find the link on amazon on the bottom of this page. Using the Propresser Garlic Press saved me time in the kitchen and I got to avoid the smell of garlic on my hands all night after dinner when we where in our food coma.

We used several different sized pieces and every one of the cloves came out in a constant size. No more uneven slices for this girl! When you may have small bits of garlic in the basket that you cant get to with your fingers, the Orblue garlic press comes with a small little brush to help get any left overs inside the basket and to remove the fresh garlic from outside just takes a little scraping with a knife to loosen it off the grader.  NO MESS to clean up after. All the juices and minced garlic do not splat all over the counter.

This kitchen tool is dishwasher save, made for everyday cooking and has is made with an ergonomic handle for even leverage. I like using this tool. It made me feel like I was queen chef. My husband liked using it too. In the picture I believe that is about 6 cloves of garlic in that bowl. 

When you feel you need one in your kitchen or some one you love needs one, you can find this handy kitchen tool on at 

***I was contacted by the Orbleu company via the Tomoson web site. I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation. Everything here is my opinion  I paid for shipping.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

School is Back in Session

Congratulations to my fellow bloggers: 

1.     Remember my love for peaches? On the blog MadameDeals she posted a recipe for peach salsa. My mouth is watering just telling you about it. I dream of homemade peach salsa on my late night nachos.  Yummmmmm

2.     Are you looking for a babysitter and are unsure what to ask when you interview them? I have a live in baby sitter, my oldest son so if I where to ask him some of these questions he would look at me like I was on something funky.  Over at Unconventional Mommy Tails she offers a great list of questions to ask in your next interview.

Please leave your link below. No rules, post any old, new, sad, happy link you wish. Have fun.
