Newest Kitchen Gadget

I swear I posted this before, but obviously not, since I can’t find it anywhere, maybe I dreamed (dreamt?) about it. Oh well, so here’s the newest thing that I’ve been using in our kitchen.

Though we do have new bell peppers and tomatoes in the kitchen, it’s not that–though you can head on over to our healthy 41c-BmkrI3Leating side and see how to make some pico de gallo.

It’s the garlic press!

I remember grow up, my mom had one. It was basic and did all kind of cool stuff. We used it when we made salt dough ornaments and my sister made one–I thought it looked like Santa–with a bread, using the press to make the hair look real. It was awesome!

But, that’s not what I’ve used it for–at least not yet. I used it to make pickles a few weeks ago, did you see my crazy post about all the cucumbers?

And I used it to more recently to make some garlic oil when Mr. got an ear infection. It did say whole cloves, but I didn’t want to wait.

It’s my favorite new toy! I don’t mind the smell of garlic, so I just use my fingers to clean it out, but you don’t have to, you can just spray it out with the sink sprayer. The basket moves out and it super easy to clean!

Seriously my favorite new gadget! I am going to have to see what else I can do with this little baby!

Head on over here and check it out!

Mid-night Mishaps

What a day–ugh! That’s about all there is to say. I spent (what felt like) ALL day on the phone trying to get cable/internet setup here because my sister and I need to have it for work, getting the carpets first, and getting us a trash can–as we have a compost trash can & a recycling trash can but, not one for general garbage. Well, none of it worked out–not until my brother-in-law called the people to move things along. It was kind of ridiculous.

Well, ending the day wasn’t any better–I volunteered to make mac n cheese for my sister. Got it all made, baked it, and when it came out–I was putting Z to sleep. Well, Mr. says that it tastes different–sweet. That’s when I knew what I did because it wasn’t getting thick enough. So, round 2 tomorrow. But, it was a $#!++y way to end the day–that’s for sure.

Haven’t had work in the last two days–well, no article writing so, hoping that it’ll start flowing in next week, when my bosses gets the new company. Guess we’ll see. Well, now it’s time for some time with my hubby and a movie–we’re watching After Earth tonight.

Do you get date nights with your spouses? Or just some downtime?

I recommend Fire Proof! Such an amazing movie. & although our marriage is amazing right now, I am really considering doing the Love Dare to my husband, just as a growing experience for myself. But, we’ll see. I think it could be really beneficial for me. More to come about it later.

Hope you all have a good weekend–carpet should be getting fixed tomorrow so, going to do what I can to help my sister unpack and to unpack most of our stuff tomorrow–over living out of boxes.

Well, night readers–and fellow bloggers.
