Happy Valentine's Day 2016

I just wanted to wish all of you a 
Happy Valentine's Day



Are you doing something special today?
We are going out to dinner, 
just like we did last year. 
We are actually going to the same place, which was really nice, quiet and low key, but the food was out of this world.



Are you hoping for something special?

Or like me, its just fun to spend some time alone with that special someone?







Whatever you do, 





I hope it makes good memories for you.

Its a new Tupperware Month .. Mid February with a Presidents Challenge

I love when the new mid month brochure from Tupperware comes out.  There are always something new to check out on my Tupperware site, whether it is a new product, new product grouping, a vintage product making a surprise appearance or like this month a President's Challenge.

The North America and Canada President of Tupperware has challenged us to sell 16 of these products at the price of $16 each between today and Friday February 19th.  
I would love to be able to meet this challenge.
Will you help me?  Unfortunately they are only available when the order is placed by me, not online.  If you want to order these, shoot me a message and we will get an order placed for you.  Just remember these must be ordered before Friday, Feb 19th.


The Chip n Dip set is perfect for all kinds of chips and dips (you can have 2 different ones with the 2 cups).  But you can use it for a big salad and use the "cups" for different salad dressings.  Or even as a punch bowl.  Freeze the cups with punch and a complementary fruit and you can easily have a punch that will not be watered down as the night goes on. Or freeze those cups with plain water and use one upside down (with the seal) and it will keep the contents cold!

I love the tumblers because they are great for drip proof sipping. Insert a straw in the dripless seal spot and even your little ones won't be spilling their drinks!



The Chop n Prep is always on my counter, I use it almost every night for those small chopping needs, last night I used it for onions, peppers and carrots to go in my meat sauce.  These pieces shown here are available at these prices (and colors) for a short time.  They must be ordered from my Tupperware site before the end of day February 26th!  I LOVE the cupcake keepers ... perfect for your lunch.

The rest of the Mid-February brochure is shown here.  These pieces are available starting today until March 11th.   The girlfriend set, with multiple possibilities, are part of this brochure.



What is the girlfriend set you ask?
Well here is another great pic of the possibilities to share with your girlfriend so you each get a set of Tupperware and share the cost.


This is a great idea that you can customize so that you and one of girlfriend can share.  The base is the Krazy 8's set.  Some of you may really need all of the pieces yourself.  Others may only need 4 microwave cereal bowls and tumblers ... well grab someone else in your friends group that also only need 4 and you both get to share the items and the cost ... a win win for both of you.

Any questions, just leave me a message and I will get you an answer or help you get set up.  Want a party?  I am ready to help with that too.  If you just want to place an order ... jump on my current online party (see sidebar for current party link) and you could be my mystery hostess for the month!

#GotMeTipsy Coffee Mugs

To be keeping Big Brother Happy. 
I received this product for free to facilitate my review, in exchange for my honest opinion. I will only highlight products I feel will be of benefit to my readers. For more information regarding product review, please refer to my media kit.

I have to say that I am in love with this company.  They have the most fun ideas when they re-create every day products.

One of my co-workers shared this one with all of us shortly before I was getting ready to post this review.  It was so appropriate, I had to add this to the review.


Now we don't do this on Friday's, especially since Saturday is also a work day, but some days I bet there are many of us that wish we could.  You know some days just start out bad.  

I know that this mug is definitely going to make some people smile this tax season, me included since I am bringing this one to the office for the duration of tax season.  

#GotMeTipsy Coffee Mug


I don't think it will get me into too much trouble (insert smiley face here).

It would be a the perfect gift for the person who has everything or who really likes "funny" gifts.  Could you see giving this to your boss, filled with coffee of course, after a particularly difficult work week?


Got Me Tipsy is an interesting company with so many wonderful things that will make you smile.  I know it does me.  

If you like this mug, and I know you do, I'm willing to bet you will enjoy their wine glasses as well ... I have those too and will be sharing them very soon.

Boyfriend 5.0 Upgraded to Husband 1.0??


This is just so good I had to share.  
It was in my email the other day from one of my co-workers.  She wanted to share to spread a little late day "cheer".  
So of course I had to share it with you too, it really is too good not to share.


A woman wrote to tech support, and their reply is a stroke of genius:

This young woman is no different from the rest of us, both family happiness and
heartbreak are familiar to her. 
She is simply looking for an answer to her questions. 
  • How do you maintain a relationship? 
  • How do you bring back the excitement of the first date?
She wrote a letter to the tech support to find her answers. 

She sent the letter as a joke and only remembered about it when she suddenly received an email notification with a response.

Bright Side welcomes you to read these emails. This correspondence changed her life.  It could possibly change yours as well.

Dear Tech Support,
Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slowdown
in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as: 
  • Romance 9.5  
  • Personal Attention 6.5

and then installed undesirable programs such as:
  • NBA 5.0 
  • NFL 3.0  
  • Golf Clubs 4.1.





Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and House cleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. 


Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

What can I do?
Signed,
Desperate

Dear Desperate,
"First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. 
Please enter command: I thought you loved me.html and try to download Tears 6.2 and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. 

If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically
run the applications:
  • Jewelry 2.0  
  • Flowers 3.5.

However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default
to

  • Grumpy Silence 2.5 
  • Happy Hour 7.0 
  • Beer 6.1

Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta.

Whatever you do, DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.)

In addition, please, do not attempt to re-install the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot
learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend: Cooking 3.0 and Hot Lingerie.

Good Luck!

Parmesan Potato Wedges

These would have been awesome during yesterdays game, you know that little game that everyone was watching either for the game itself or the half time show or the commercials.

But I really think they would be perfect any time you want to have some homemade fries (like steak fries only better) to serve with lunch or dinner, especially when they are this easy.

Parmesan Potato Wedges made easy with Tupperware

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450° F
  2. Combine ingredients in a medium Thatsa bowl, seal and shake until potatoes are coated.
  3. Spread out potatoes onto baking sheet lined with Silicone Wonder® Mat.
  4. Bake 25–30 minutes, until potatoes are tender and deep golden brown.

I will definitely be keeping this one in the ready for all those times you want something "different" to do with potatoes to go with dinner ...

Shake and Bake Chickpeas

Personally I love using Chickpeas.  I use them in salads all the time and mashed in a hummus like spread on a veggie sandwich.

I've also seen them used in some diet programs to increase the daily fiber intake as well as help to lower the LDL levels (that's the bad stuff) and triglycerides.




Ingredients

  • 2 cups chickpeas, cooked
  • 1 tsp. coarse kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. coriander
  • 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Combine ingredients in medium bowl (a Thatsa bowl would work great), seal and shake until chickpeas are fully coated.
  3. Spread coated chickpeas out onto baking sheet lined with Silicone Wonder® Mat.
  4. Bake 35–40 minutes or until dry and crunchy.
Now of course I have to see if I can used the canned version of chickpeas and just drain and dry with a paper towel and get the same results.  I've never seen "cooked" chickpeas unless it really does mean the canned kind. Come to think of it, I don't think I've seen "in a bag" kind either.
