Mojito Margarita the Tupperware Way





Prep time: 5 minutes
Servings: 1
INGREDIENTS
  • 1/2 lime
  • 5 mint leaves
  • 1½ tbsp. simple syrup
  • 1½ oz. vodka
  • 1 oz. tequila
  • 4 oz. club soda

DIRECTIONS
  1. Place lime and mint leaves in Zest ‘N Press® Gadget and press down to juice the lime and muddle the leaves over the Quick Shake® Container
  2. Empty leaves and lime in Quick Shake® as well.
  3. Add simple syrup, vodka and tequila. 
  4. Cover and shake for 15 seconds.
  5. Pour in cup with ice. 
  6. Top with club soda and lime zest.
I have shared with you before an Adult Beverage recipe that used the Quick Shake that was a definite winner.  
If you love Margaritas or want to try something new for the summer, these are definite must tries.





The Quick Shake can also be used for more adult beverages or non-adult if you please.  I shared this one after I had been in Las Vegas for a conference.  You can check it out here, but yes this did make a big "sun splash" when I got home and is definitely another keeper!






I really like using this Tupperware piece for so many things, but being able to use it as a cocktail maker, especially outside, on the deck or around the pool makes it a fabulous addition to your repertoire.

Butternut Squash Noodles




Yields: 2 servings
INGREDIENTS
  • 1lb. butternut squash, neck separated from bulb
  • 1 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/8 cup yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2-3 tbsp. Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Pinch cayenne pepper (flakes or ground)
  • 3-4 sage leaves

DIRECTIONS
  1. Assemble Fusion Master® Spiralizer fitted with the thin noodle blade and butternut squash. 
  2. Turn handle until fully spiralized.
  3. In Chef Series 11” fry pan, melt butter over medium heat and add butternut squash noodles. 
  4. Stir to coat, add 2 tbsp. water and cover for 5-7 mins or until noodles are fully cooked.
  5. Uncover, make a well in the center, and add garlic and onion. 
  6. Sauté for 1 minute, and mix well with noodles. 
  7. Add sage, and mix to combine.
  8. Remove from heat, and mix in heavy cream, Parmesan, salt and red pepper flakes. 
  9. Serve immediately.

I got one of these babies (Fusion Master Spiralizer) to try and add more veggies into our diet.  I was thinking it would make things more "fun" to eat ... and I also thought this would make great onion "frizzles" for grilled steaks and burgers.

I haven't made this Butternut Squash dish, yet.  
But I do think it will be made very soon.  

What about you?
Have you tried this amazing product yet?

Have you made things that use spiralized veggies?
If so, what recipes have you tried and love the most?

A Quick Ice Cream everyone can have





Yields: 2 servings
Prep: 10 minutes
INGREDIENTS
  • 4 frozen overripe bananas, peeled & cut in chunks
  • 6-8 tbsp. milk of choice
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa powder, optional
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon, optional
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper, optional

DIRECTIONS
  1. Remove bananas from freezer for 12-15 minutes to slightly thaw.
  2. Place 4-6 frozen bananas chunks in base of Quick Chef® Pro System, cover and turn knob to process. Add milk through funnel as needed to make turning handle easier.
  3. Continue adding banana chunks and turning handle until bananas are smooth in texture.
  4. Remove cover and blade and if desired add in remaining ingredients or serve as is with desired toppings.

I really enjoy Tupperware products.
I love how things that could be a little challenging to make are made easier with Tupperware.

This is just one of the ways you can make "ice cream" for you and your family.  This Quick Chef Pro System is a great addition to your kitchen for this and many more recipes.   
How about using this for a more "Adult" recipe like a Mango Salsa?  I've shared this one before, but wanted to help show the diversity of this product.

I also love our "sorbet" maker (one of the many accessories available for the Fusion Master System) that helps you make some great soft serve!

Do NOT give up

I know that there are times that I really need a kick in the pants when I start getting down on myself when things are not going the way I expect them to.

Sometimes I need to re-evaluate my thinking.  Is what I expected the wrong thing to happen or the wrong thing to happen at this time?  Or am I just not suppose to be doing what it is that I am doing?





Or is this more like it.
I need to keep going, keep do what I am doing because my success is right around the corner.

What do you think?
Are you in the same place?

Let's not give up together.
Let's keep "plugging" along cause our success is right around the corner.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY

I know I haven't been around for a while.  I'm not quite sure why, other than it was Tax Season - you know my "favorite" time of year.

But I couldn't not post about this.   
So  I just wanted to stop in quickly to wish everyone a very Happy Memorial Day.

But also to remind you what this day is really all about.
Please don't forget why you have your freedoms.



Hopefully I will see you soon.
I'm going to try and spread a little "wisdom" right here again starting today.

Happy St Patrick's Day


And then I saw this one and thought ... yup that's about right, but I'm really glad that I have a part of me that IS Irish.


That's right ... on St Patrick's Day everyone, or at least it seems that way, are Irish, but this is another one that is so true.

I have thought about how we Irish really know how to celebrate. 
Kind of like at an Irish Funeral ... yes, there can be some crying or serious sobbing, but darn we all know how to celebrate.  And of course you could say that a funeral isn't time to celebrate, but we think you would be wrong.  
A funeral, especially an Irish Funeral is a time to Celebrate the LIFE of the deceased, and then we seriously need somebody to drive 😛 because, well even though we are great celebrators, we do try to be mature and responsible too!

As I end this post, and until the time for this final celebration, may this beautiful Irish Blessing be a part of your daily thoughts.
