Few reasons for regrets

I know there can be many things that we regret, but I think this one is the one of those things we should regret the most.

Now you know me, I am not talking about those chances that could be dangerous.  
I'm talking about those chances that could lead you to a better life. Those chances that allow you to grow in a way that you may never have thought you could.

These are the chances that we should grab with both hands and give it all we have.

If we don't ... these are the ones we will look back on with regret.
Friends don't let friends regret .... 
take that chance!

Memphis Style Dry Rub

It is BBQ season and I'm always looking forward to trying new recipes.  Especially ones that I get to make everything from scratch instead of buying pre-made.

Now there is nothing wrong with pre-made, I have made all kinds of meals with pre-made/pre-packaged items as part of the ingredients. Heck I think I was Sandra Lee before Sandra Lee was Sandra Lee. Now I really hope you know who Sandra Lee is or I will be really disappointed.

I am thinking this would be fabulous on some ribs (which I may be making soon for sure) out on the grill, but also on chicken.  I am betting there really isn't much you couldn't use this on.  Except for maybe fish since I think this would be a little too much for a delicate fish.

Another definition of Happiness

Sometimes even the simplest of things need an even simpler explanation.

I think I will be trying to put this simple explanation into practice more often.

I know there are many times that I am very grateful for everything that I have.  I know that many of the things I have are because of the grace of God, not because of anything that I have done or earned.

I would love to say that I have been showing my gratefulness every day, but I do not wish to lie to you.  I know that there have been many days that I have not.  There have been many days that I have thought that is wish things were different, that I had something more.

I can't promise that I won't have days like these again.  But I am promising you here and now that I will try harder to just be grateful for all the things I have - good and bad.  Grateful for just one more day with these things.  Some don't have that privilege.

I'm in a special competition ... are you?

I saw this one and thought that this is so much better than just saying "stop competing with everyone else".

First I don't think that is completely possible. Society seems to think that we need to be in competition.  And in some things it is good to be in a competition with someone. Sometimes that someone is YOU.

What we need to do though, is recognize that just because we are in a competition it doesn't mean it needs to be to your detriment. Sometimes it is for the good of everyone that we compete.

Some days it mean that you need to stop competing with everyone else and realize that YOU are better than yesterday and THAT is all you need, all that really matters.  That is all you can ask for and still be happy.

Some times it means that you don't need to be a superstar in everyone's eyes, you just need to be better than yesterday and then you are a star.

Treat me good and .........

This one is just simple.
It really is just this easy.

Maybe if everyone did this .. then we would all be living in a much better world.

Might just make it a better place for everyone, so that they want to make our Earth a cleaner, nicer place to be.  Lets face it - its the only one we have to live on at the moment!

Thank you Powerofpositivity.com for this reminder.

Love Can ...

I guess with it being my Anniversary week, I've got Love on the mind.

But I do like this one and think it should be one that I print out and put in a frame.

What do you think?
Is it frame worthy?

Happy Father's Day 2015

I just wanted to stop and wish my readers a very 

Dad's are special.
Most of the time, they aren't "expected" to be the ones that nourish and comfort.  They are the ones that are "supposed" to bring in the money so Mom can do all those things.
But in reality, this is what a dad is.

My dad was one of the "good guys".  He was the breadwinner and provider of all those things we wanted to do.   He was always the one that made me want to do, to be better. He always allowed me to spread my wings knowing that he would be there if I failed.  He was and is my "safety net".

For all the dads out there ... Happy Father's Day.
For all the moms, who are holding down two "jobs" ... Happy Father's Day to you too.

And to everyone else, I'm  

Now go call your dad and wish him the same.

Love is

This one is really special. 
I think it is that mystery key that so many seek, but alas, too few find.

I'm not really sure why. 

But I do know that I did find that password.

Today is my wedding anniversary.

Today we have been married for .... 34 years.

I will admit, some days it feels like forever.  
But most of the time I can't believe it was that long ago. 

Happy Anniversary to my Love.

Here's to another 34.

Cobb Salad ... in a flash to go

I LOVE Cobb Salad.
But somehow it always seems to be soggy or wilted or just not right when I tried to take it to work.  
Well that is until I found this method.  Yes you could use a Mason Jar ... but then you have to worry about broken glass ... the QuickShake from Tupperware solves that problem too!

Now using the recipe below and the Tupperware QuickShake, I can take this to work and just "shake shake shake" and pour.

See this is just so easy and looks like it would fit into just about any backpack or briefcase....

  • 4 oz. chicken breast, steamed and cut into small chunks
  • 1 hard-boiled egg
  • 2 tbsp. Basil Vinaigrette or preferred dressing
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 slices pre-cooked bacon, cut into small pieces
  • ¼ cup feta cheese
  • 1 cup romaine lettuce, chopped

Season chicken breast with salt and pepper.

Place in SmartSteamer base, filling water tray with 1¾ cups water. Place steamer base over water tray and cover. 
Microwave on high power 8–10 minutes, or until chicken reaches 165° F.

Slice the hard-boiled egg using the Slice ’N Wedge fitted with the wedge insert.

Layer (bottom to top): 
  • dressing 
  • tomatoes 
  • chicken 
  • bacon 
  • cheese 
  • egg
  • lettuce

Securely seal container. 
Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

When ready to serve, shake Quick Shake® Container until all ingredients are combined. 

Pour into bowl and serve.

As always, any of the Tupperware pieces mentioned above (and so much more) is available on my Tupperware Site.

Don't let anyone tell you differently

When my daughter was in grade school, this really still annoys me to no end, one of her counselors told me that "we" should "discourage" her from what she says she wants to do.  He said he believed that she just isn't "capable" ... I stopped dead in my tracks and at a very hushed voice, in a tone he could not miss, I told him in no uncertain terms that he was to NEVER tell her that.  I went so far as to tell him that if I EVER heard that he or ANYONE in the school district told her that there would be hell to pay.

I have told her and have encouraged her, to do what she wants to do - what she believes that she can do.  This became her motto to live every day.

She is a senior at a NJ University who will have a degree in one of the Sciences and a minor in History.

I can't tell you how much I would LOVE to be able to look that "know it all" counselor in the eye and say .. TOLD YOU.

Make sure your children or grandchildren know that you stand behind them and that THEY CAN do whatever they put their minds to.  Be their encouragement in a world of discouragers.  Sometimes that's all they need to prove that they CAN.

Happiness Comes

Saw this and thought YES this is a definite keeper!

I am quite sure we all have lots (if not more than enough) to complain about, but lets face it, once we get it off our chest, what does complaining do for the problem?

Usually nothing.

Once we get it off our chest we can move on. We can either figure out what to do to "fix" the problem or decide that it isn't worth fixing and move on to something better.

So if we stop thinking about, complaining about the troubles we have and start celebrating all the good things that we have, and yes we have lots of good things in our lives, and recognize all the troubles we don't have ... we will be much happier!

Let's face it, if you look around you and see some of the troubles/problems that your neighbors have, that you don't have ... you might just be thanking your lucky stars, or God for allowing those problems to pass you bye.

I know I will be.

Life's a dance ....

I don't know where you stand on the Huffington Post or Arianna Huffington, but this is actually a pretty good quote to think about, no matter how you feel.

How many of us just allow things to "happen" and then "wish" we had done something to make it different?

How many of us have thought "If I had just done ... "

I think that this is a pretty good idea about what life is.

Yes you can go into the details of life and why things happen or don't happen.  You can get philosophical or theological about why things happen.  One day we could discuss those ideas.  

But I'm thinking this one is pretty much on the money.

Which part of the dance are you going to take part in?

Slow down .. take your time

I saw this one and just had to share.
So many of us are running around trying to do everything, have everything, because we THINK we NEED them.

Sometimes we just have to stop and realize what we are doing.

When what we really need to do is just stop and breathe.

So are you with me?
Are you willing to take the time to just breathe?

You may just find that all those things that you were chasing, those things that you thought that you really NEEDED ... 
you don't.

Oh and taking time to breathe?  
Just might make you feel so much better.

Taco Salad on the Go

There are so many of us who are trying to eat healthier and keep those fast food stops at bay.
Here is a Taco Salad that you can make that can easily be taken to work with you in the morning or when you are going to be out and about and afraid that those lunch time cravings will be making it really difficult to pass by those evil drive-through windows.  I know you just rolled your eyes and said "she has lost her mind".  
No I haven't lost my mind ... not yet anyway.
Tupperware has the answer again for this salad - our QuickShake is PERFECT.
Yes, its a perfect way to transport your taco salad so that nothing is wilted or "soggy" before you get to sit down and eat it. 

  • 1 lb./455 g ground beef
  • ½ tbsp. Southwest Chipotle Seasoning
  • ¼ tsp. coarse kosher salt
  • 3 tbsp. Light Avocado Ranch or preferred dressing
  • ¼ cup cherry tomato, sliced
  • ¼ cup green bell pepper, chopped using Chop ’N Prep Chef
  • ¼ cup red onion, chopped using Chop ’N Prep Chef
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup romaine lettuce, chopped

  1. Place TupperWave® Stack Cooker Colander into Stack Cooker 3-Qt./3 L Casserole. Combine ground beef, seasoning and salt in Colander, cover and microwave on high power 5 minutes.
  2. Layer (bottom to top): dressing, tomatoes, green peppers, ½ cup ground beef (save the rest for another salad or another recipe), cheese, red onion, lettuce.
  3. Securely seal container. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
  4. When ready to serve, shake Quick Shake® Container until all ingredients are combined. Pour into bowl and serve.

Pretty neat right?

Time Karma

I saw this one and thought, if you believe in Karma, this really sends the message home.

If you don't believe in it, its more of a reminder of what your actions do to both you and to others over time.  

Shall we all keep this in mind as we go about our day?

Maybe remember that its not just about being first, or the best, or the wealthiest, its about what we do to others comes back to us one way or the other.

What's that saying??
What goes around,
Comes around.

Even God reminds us that what we do to the least of His children, we do to Him.  

I am really hoping that only good things will be coming my way, because I do try to treat everyone as I would like to be treated.

Mac and Cheese any time of year

Check out this one - Mac and Cheese any time of year.
This one is quick and easy and so much better than that "box" mix. And really doesn't take much longer than that one....but tastes so much better!

  • 8 oz./225 g macaroni noodles
  • ½ stick unsalted butter
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups reduced-fat (2%) milk
  • ½ tbsp. coarse kosher salt
  • 10 oz./285 g cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 400° F

Pour noodles into Microwave Pasta Maker and add 4 cups water. 
Microwave on high power 10 minutes. 
Drain and add to medium bowl.

Meanwhile, melt butter in pan over medium heat. Whisk in flour.

Pour milk and salt into butter flour mixture and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. 
Mixture will thicken once it boils.

Add cheese and whisk until melted.

Pour cheese sauce over noodles and stir to combine. 
Pour into UltraPro 2-Qt./2 L Square Pan and place uncovered in oven for 30 minutes or until mixture is hot and bubbly.  Yes our UltraPro can go into the oven!  

Now I would make a breadcrumb crust (using breadcrumbs and butter) to put on top before putting into the oven.  Just like grandmom use to make.

Check out the Tupperware pieces noted here on my Tupperware Site, including the UltraPro piece that can go into the oven or microwave or both.  I LOVE my UltraPro pieces.  So much more than your mama's Tupperware!

What is YOUR destiny?

I'm not sure if you believe in fate or destiny or Divine guidance.  
Or if you believe in a "combination" of these.  
I'm not going to judge your belief.  

What I am going to tell you is that no matter what you believe you must DREAM.  It is your dream, or dreams, that propel you forward. It is what helps shape your future.  
Don't settle.  
And definitely don't believe that this is the best you can have.
Don't stop dreaming BIG.

Let your dreams propel you to a bigger and better future.
They can shape your destiny.

Don't judge my dreams, they are mine.
I won't judge your dreams.
They are yours .... make them your future!

It's Tupperware's Mid June 2015 brochure - Released EARLY

I was going to post this on the 13th but I got awesome news this morning - it was released early and you can order these AND the mid May brochure items starting TODAY.

It is time for the next mid month brochure at Tupperware.
I love the Summer Catalog, but I really like having mid month brochures that sometimes have fantastic deals from the main catalog but usually have limited pieces at great prices.

Most of these pieces can be purchased from my Tupperware Site, along with any of the regular Catalog pieces.

If you are interested in any of the pieces in the box on the right .. please note that these are available for a limited time, ending at midnight June 26th, so don't miss out on these.

The FridgeSmart set is an AWESOME set from the Summer Catalog BUT you get 2 SETS for the price of 1!  I use mine all the time. Keeps your fruit and veggies fresher longer AND keeps your refrigerator organized so nothing gets "lost" until you have a science experiment to clean up.

The Mega Tumblers - 3 pc set - can only be purchased when you attend a party. 

BUT if you want a set of these, message me and you can order with me making a payment via Paypal friends and family and I will order these for you and have them shipped directly to your home.  

The pepper pieces are super cute and even make holding those mini peppers so much better than a bag.  I will even put these on the table - yes they are that cute.

The Disney Princess Tumblers are available from the Summer Catalog but the snack cups are only available with this brochure - a perfect complement to the Tumblers.  I could see these as party favors - 4 favors for less than $10 each.  Lets face it we all spend more than that with candy and little things added to the goodie bags, and this would last and not include "future dental treatments".

Scallops in a Lemon Vinaigrette

Sometimes I see recipes that I would love to make, but are afraid that I will "screw them up" because I think they are too "delicate" for me to make.
If you are like me (ok like I use to be) you need to pick up a Tupperware Smart Steamer. You could be the star of the next seafood dinner at your house ... 
yes at YOUR HOUSE.  
Look at these scallops.  Perfection.


  • 1 lb./455 g medium sea scallops
  • ¼ tsp. coarse kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • 1 lb./455 g fresh asparagus
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced 
  •        using Zest ’N Press® Gadget
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp. fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. fresh chives, chopped


Place scallops in the Colander Tray and sprinkle with half the salt and pepper.

Place asparagus in the Steamer Base. 
Fill the Water Tray with 1¾ cups/400 mL water. 
Place Colander Tray on top of Steamer Base, Steamer Base on top of Water Tray and cover. 
Microwave on high power for 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients together.  

Serve scallops and asparagus drizzled with Vinaigrette. 

Serve with white or brown rice.

Remember you can always check out what Tupperware has to offer on my Tupperware Site ... my store is always open!

Stand out from the crowd

I have always told my children that they need to be their own individual.  
Sometimes that can mean that you are just like everyone else, and that can be ok.  
But then there are many times it means that you will stand out because you are different. Yes that can be very very scary.

But THAT can be even better.

YOU can be the influence for good or greatness in the world.  
But you need to be yourself and shine.

What do you think?
Are you willing to be an influencer?

Just be Incredible

This one just fits in with some of the things that I've "discovered" about myself since I joined Tupperware.  
No this isn't a plug for my Tupperware business, although it is a wonderful business to be in with awesome products and people. 

It is something that just mirrors the teachings/information that has come from our USA/Canada president.

This is just how we feel.

Sometimes I think that people will not reach their full potential, will be looking back on their life and think I should have, I would have ... if only.  

Stop worrying about what others think.  
Stop worrying about what others will judge as "the" thing to do.

Do what you love.
And everything else will fall into place

Because you ARE possible,
You ARE incredible!

Thank you Stein Ove Fenne,
President USA/Canada, Tupperware Brands

Flip Flop Cake

Its almost Summer Time.  
*YES* those cold winter days 
will be but a memory. 

What says summer and the return of warmer weather better than Flip Flops!
I LOVE my Flip Flops and know I would live in them all year round if I could.

Now if you had the Tupperware Breakfast Maker, you could be making this cake for a party or even just because today.

I bet kids and kids at heart would love to have this for a Summer Party in your yard or deck. I know I would.

Don't have one?
Check out my Tupperware Site or Jump onto my current online party and pick yours up today.  

While you are there, see what else we have that is may be new to you. 
Remember we are so much more than your Mama's Tupperware.

The Every Year Calendar

 I received a copy of the Every Year Calendar to facilitate my review.  I received no further compensation for my honest review.

I seem to have a problem with calendars.  
I use them for all kinds of things; birthdays, anniversaries, appointments.

But always seem to have lots of "blanks".  

It is in those blanks that I wish I had room to write my feelings about what is going on, kind of like a journal.  

But of course most calendars have tiny spaces to write so thoughts and feelings are out the window.

That is until now.  One of the reasons I think that The Every Year Calendar is great is because it doesn't have a preset date on its pages.  AND has enough room to actually write something.

I am thinking that this would be perfect for all kinds of people.  Yes it would be great for an adult or an entrepreneur - to keep track of all your appointments but to also keep track of your notes about those meetings.  You could use a different page for each appointment.

There are inspirational quotes and questions to get you started making each day special.  

Or to help you bring out your thoughts and feelings on a days happenings.

Or start setting your goals and helping to get them accomplished through organizing your thoughts on the page.

Another great idea is to have a book for each stage of your life. 
What a great place to record their feelings as they go from middle school to high school.  
Or high school to college.  
Or college to that first job.

You could even use this as a writing tool. They have goal setting worksheets that would be great to "get the ball rolling".

I can see this as a great gift to give for every milestone, especially since each book is delivered to you wrapped to make it special right from the opening of the box.

Oh and if what you want is something to "test drive" this with, they have a "teaser" size that is 4 months instead of 12 using the Inspire theme.  Since its not dated, you can use it now or next week or next month because YOU set the dates on the page.  
YOU get to decide how you use this calendar.

Check out The Every Year Calendar and get yours today.  You can start right away - a great start to the summer.  

You won't be disappointed.
