Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

I saw this one and thought this would be good for just about everyone.

I love seeing the Tupperware Recipes.  Yes they are made for Tupperware products, and yes I do like most of the products that are available on my Tupperware Site ... but many can be made without them ... just, possibly not as easy.

If you want any Tupperware products, just clink on the links in the recipes or in the post and check them out on my Tupperware Site.  Or just leave me a message and I will get back to you.

#WinterStorm #Grayson

So with the start of the new year, we here in the East are being challenged with Winter Storm Grayson.


They say this storm is going to be pretty bad.
The Weather Channel (among others) is calling for it to undergo something called bombogenesis.  
Which really doesn't sound like a good thing.















Right now we have fine snow falling, but I am not going to be fooled by this, I know that this fine stuff can accumulate pretty fast.  Many places, including New Jersey, are being warned about white out conditions with this storm.


Virginia Beach, shown here, looks like it is getting hit pretty bad, according to the Weather Channel.  My son has also confirmed that it isn't "pretty".


I think there are going to be some interesting days ahead with lots of folks either hunkering down at home (those that are being smart) or some cold folks walking away from abandoned cars or accidents.

Please be smart and stay home ... too many ways to get hurt in this kind of weather.  Especially if you are in a part of the East that normally doesn't get this kind of weather.

But lets see where everyone is from and what kind of weather they are seeing.  How much of the "white stuff" are they calling for where you are?

I'm in New Jersey and they are calling for anywhere from 2-4 inches in the western part of the State to 16-18 inches near the coast!  


Here's my backyard this morning ... I forgot to bring in my wind chimes (the double black hook at bottom center) so this should be fun ... they will either be frozen or hopefully I will be able to bring them in once it stops.  Wish me luck!

Happy New Year

I just wanted to stop by and visit.


And of course wish you all a very Happy New Year!

I have stopped making New Years Resolutions (I guess I realized that the more I resolved to do something, the less likely I was to accomplish it).

How about you?
Do you make New Years Resolutions?
If so, what are you going to do or not do this year?



Whatever you do ... whatever you are setting out to accomplish, my wish is that YOU will accomplish ANYTHING that you put your mind to.


Let's get this year Started ... 
Get it Started on a Positive Note.

Hope to see you soon and often.

It's Big, Really Big

Today is December 30th, the start of a "new year" at Tupperware



And of course that means its the Adult Legos Sale month!
Yes, it was started last week, but with Christmas and Family visits and everything ... I didn't get to really share.


Today is the start of Tupperware's Big Weeks Brochure.  I love my Modular Mates!  I have almost finished my kitchen cabinets (yes I have all kinds of things in Tupperware Modular Mates including my bulk spices that are perfect for oval or super oval 1s and 2s!).




If you like this popsicle color (kind of a red but not cherry red, I have these and they are a nice pop of color for your cabinets) you want to get them THIS month since this color is for a limited time.  

If these Modular Mate sets 
and individual piece sale





























weren't enough to make you jump on over to my site, check out these items for the upcoming "Season of Love".





Today is also the FIRST day of the Winter & Spring Catalog!







Yes I am just a little bit excited.
All kinds of new things are happening at Tupperware.
Come check us out.

This definitely sounds like a hit!!!

Merry Christmas

Just a quick stop in to wish all 
my friends, family, readers and followers 
a very 







I was going to show a picture of my tree, but I just couldn't get the picture to turn out right.  


Now my tree looks pretty nice  but ... 


Too many lights, too many ornaments ... and then again never enough.


But every tree should have a Marshmallow Man.  
If you don't have one.  

Here is a cute example of something you can easily do with a few candles!


Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas time with your friends and family.

I promise I will be back more often after the holidays.
I have a few things to review/share in the new year!
