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.

Have a Tupperware Homemade Hot Cocoa Party

 I'm sharing a party idea from another team that was shared by my director.

This so sounds like the perfect way to start the year.
Especially since it sounds like its going to be a cold one!

In January all my in home Tupperware parties are going to be "Hot Cocoa" Parties.
This is the recipe I'm going to use. I'm going to make up a batch (ok maybe more than 1) for home too.

In my parties I will bring the mix in Modular Mates and then suggest that my host get FUN with the additives...whipped cream, peppermint schnapps, baileys or fun marshmallows!

This definitely sounds like a hit!!!

Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

Makes 17 cups of mix


  • 1 - 8qt box of Powdered Milk
  • 1 - 16 oz jar of Creamer (change by using flavored creamer)
  • 1 - cup Sugar
  • 1 - cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 - 20oz container of Nesquik
Combine all ingredients in a Tupperware Thatsa Bowl.
Seal & mix well.
Store in a Tupperware Modular Mate Square 3.
Label & Date. Use within 6 months.

*To make one serving of Hot Chocolate:

  • Add 1/3 cup of mix  
  • 8 oz of Hot Water 
  • Stir to dissolve. 
  • Add in some "fun" additions or leave plain.
  • Top with whipped cream or marshmallows.

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!

It's Santa Tracking Time!!

That's right.  It's one of my favorite times of year.

When my kids were little (yes a long time ago) we use to check out where Santa was and now you can do it online ... hour by hour!

This is great fun for young kids and as they get older, they can also learn about geography and customs and so much more while checking out where Santa is.

Mid December 2017 for Tupperware

I love the middle of the month.
I love when we get to see what is available just for the next "month".

Sometimes it is something that we don't have in the regular catalog ... so you get a short window to grab some products at an awesome price that not everyone will have.

Sometimes it is something in a much different color.
Sometimes it is something that hasn't been seen for a while.

These pieces here are available until January 12th.  You can use this link to place your order and get these awesome pieces at fantastic prices and colors before they are gone.

This is a great way to combine some pieces in the mid December brochure to either give 2 fantastic gifts OR you could give one and keep one.

As is always the case, we have some items that are "short term" so if you are interested in any of these, you need to act (or should I say order) before December 29th when these deals end.

If you are interested in the hostess specials .. talk to me about getting a party together.

Now speaking of "short term" items, here is something that is going on at a FANTASTIC price for this week only!  Are you a party person?  Or do you know 1 or 2?

This price is fabulous and only available at this price until Friday December 15th.

Do you have any questions?  Give me a shout.

No questions but you want to order something?  
Jump on over to my December "party" link and place your order, shipping directly to your door!

JORD Black Friday Sale going on NOW

Are you ready for all those Black Friday Sales?
How about getting a jump start on those sales?

Check out JORD for some awesome Black Friday Sale prices on incredible wood watches!  I really LOVE mine.

But wait ... yes you can get in on this fabulous Black Friday Sale NOW through November 27th but if you want to get an even better deal, I have a secret for you.  Once you are on the site, look for the text "BLACK FRIDAY" and click on it 5 times.

Yes you got me .. click on it 5 times and you will be given even bigger and better deals during this Black Friday Sale!

They have some really sharp looking watches for both men and women in awesome colors and designs.

Here are some of my favorites.

This one is from the Frankie Series and just looks amazing.  The plum face against the Purpleheart body is just stunning.  

This is my all time favorite for either you or your man.  There are some great wood and face color combinations that make this perfect for either of you.

This one, with it's light wood color with the amazing grains and then a beautiful blue face from the Meridian Series .. I can see this one on my wrist too.

How about something like this for your favorite man?  

The Delmar Series includes this Red Sandalwood body with a Red Carbon face that just looks so much more than what you will find in a department store.

Or are you looking for something a bit darker with a pop of color like this one from the Conway Series?

Even with the darker body, you can still see the wood grain that helps to make the Burgundy face stand out.

Now don't wait because this Black Friday Sale ends on November 27th at 11:59 PM Pacific Time.

I may just have to get a new one for myself at these sale prices!
I am also in the running for a prize based on their sales.  If you were to purchase from my link above, I could win a prize from JORD, but that is not why I am sharing this.  

I am sharing this because I really do LOVE my JORD wood watches (I have 2).  They are the lightest watches I have ever owned and they keep perfect time.

Cornish Hen Supper

I don't know about you, but the thought of doing Cornish Hens for dinner was always daunting for me.  I really don't know why, because let face it they are just baby chickens right, but I've never even thought seriously about making them.

That is until I saw this one on my Tupperware Site.
With just a little planning you could even do this on a week night!

Yield: 4
Serving Size: ½ Cornish game hen


  • 2 Cornish game hens
  • 1 tbsp. butter, divided
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt

  • 1 cup prepared stuffing*, divided

  4. Rub each hen with butter.
  5. Add carrots, parsnips and mushrooms to pan.

  7. Place pan in microwave and microwave 12 minutes high power.

  11. Remove pan from oven and let stand 5 minutes. 
  12. Transfer hens to a cutting board. 
  13. Cut hens in half lengthwise. 
  14. Serve warm with vegetables and pan drippings.

Tupperware's Mid November brochure

You know I love my Tupperware, but I love it even more at the start of each "mid month" brochure because of the sale prices on pieces in our regular quarterly catalog, but also because there are things that are not in the regular catalog at a great deal.

That is what I see in this brochure.

We have some awesome pieces for planned over storage, but my all time favorite is the Stuffables.
These are the best all year round, but even more so during the holidays when we always always have "extras".  I love these because they have a great expandable top when you need just that little more headroom for your mashed potatoes or steamed veggies and so much more.  And at this price it is a steal!  It's at an even better price this year over last year.

And then there is that large storage tote.
It is great for holiday decoration storage, but I saw the other day that someone used it for a Texas Sheet Cake!

As is the norm, we have some short term items to share with you as well.  Just remember, these go away after November 24th so grab yours while you can.

If by this time, you are needing a new lunch "box" for work or school or whenever, we have this great looking one.  It comes with a Sandwich Keeper, Snack Cup and a tumbler.  
I personally like the Lunch-it Containers.  I can use this to make my own bento box type lunches.  And you get 2 for this price.

If you want to take a small side salad, the mini Salad Keeper is great.  And of course having the ability to have your dressing on the side, at least to travel, is perfect - no soggy veggies. 

If that's not enough, you can add a Commuter Mug for your coffee or tea for the ride in.

I have a couple of the Wine Totes.  They make great gifts, filled with your favorite bottle of wine or after dinner liquor.  Looks so much better than a brown bag, and you could either take it home later or leave it as a gift to your host, so he/she will remember how wonderful you are every time they see it!

See something you like?  Check it out in more detail on my Tupperware Site, along with all the other items we have available.

Arroz Con Leche

I'm not sure if I have shared this super simple dessert before or not.
I like that you can follow it exactly as is and it would be great, but you can also "tweak" it a little for things you like or don't like.

Like raisins, some people don't like raisins, but LOVE craisins.  Especially if you find those "flavored" ones.  Or maybe you like the dried cherries or blueberries.  I bet you could swap those in without a bit of trouble and make it different every time.

Yield: 8
Serving Size: about ½ cup

  • 3 ½ cups cooked long grain rice
  • 1 ½ cups raisins
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon

  1. In the base of the Microwave Pressure Cooker stir together rice, raisins, sugar, milk and vanilla until well combined. 
  2. Lock cover in place and microwave on high power 16 minutes.
  3. Remove from microwave; let stand 10 minutes or until pressure has released and valve indicator is in the down position. 
  4. Remove cover, stir in cream. 
  5. Sprinkle with cinnamon before serving.

As always, if you want to check out the Tupperware products mentioned in my Easy Cooking posts, you can just jump on over to my Tupperware Site, or click on a link in the instructions.

Roasted Rosemary and Parm Fennel

I saw this one and knew, just knew I was going to have to try this one.
I personally love fennel, but I'm not so sure about hubby.  
You see he doesn't really "do" vegetables unless it is a salad.
We shall see how he does with this one, since fennel just screams Fall to me.

Mexican Chocolate Truffles

Yield: 16
Serving Size: 3 truffles
  • 2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 4 tbsp. salted butter
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 cups crushed cornflakes, divided
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp. cayenne pepper
  1. In the base of the 1¾-Qt. TupperWave® Stack Cooker Casserole stir together chocolate, cream, butter, vanilla, 1 cup of the cornflakes and coconut. 
  2. Microwave on high power 1 minute. Remove from microwave and cover; let stand 1 minute. Stir until well melted and glossy.*
  3. Cover and refrigerate 30-45 minutes, or until truffle filling is firm and easy to scoop.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together remaining cornflakes, cinnamon, and cayenne. 
  5. Invert stack cooker cover and add cornflake mixture.
  6. Scoop about 1 tbsp. of the chocolate mixture and form into ball. 
  7. Roll in cornflake mixture, gently pressing, until coated in cornflakes. 
  8. Repeat with remaining chocolate mixture.
  9. Place finished truffles on a plate or in an air-tight container and refrigerate 10-15 minutes, or until firm. 
  10. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
Microwave on high power in 15 second increments as needed until chocolate has melted.
Wearing food-safe gloves makes rolling truffles easier. If the chocolate mixture becomes too warm and difficult to roll, refrigerate mixture 5-10 minutes or until firm again.
If gifting, stack dry ingredients in the spaghetti dispenser in the following order: ½ of the chocolate chips, 1 cup of the cornflakes, coconut, remaining chocolate chips
Want a little "visual"?  I know sometimes I like to see someone tackle a recipe before I do, so ... check out this youtube video.

I LOVE 31's November Special!

I don't know if you have checked out 31 lately, but they usually have some awesome monthly specials that you can pick up for a great deal.

Last month, the reason I originally started my 31 party, had to do with the Weekender Bag.  I am in LOVE with the Weekender Bags.  
But of course, since it wasn't together until something like the last week of the month, I was able to keep my party open for another week or so to be able to pick up some of the November Only specials.  
Or for my friends to be able to grab some great deals as well.

Here it is ... the November Specials
With an INSERT!

Yes you read that correctly. 
Only during the November (until 11/21) you can get not one but TWO Medium Utility Totes for just $10 Each! 
You can choose TWO Medium Stand Tall Inserts for $10 each 
Any combination of 2 for $20 when you spend $35. 

These would be great for the trunk of your car, for sports "stuff" or Girl Scout/Boy Scout (or the little ones .. Daisies or Cubs?) Stuff. I remember always having a ton of "stuff" that needed to be carted around.  Think Christmas or Hanukkah people, these would be great!

But you know the Best Part? I know I know, that wasn't good enough? Well you can have your gifts Personalize in time for the holidays by adding a fun message, monogram, or limited-time Holiday Design!

Don't forget, if you want to pick up anything from 31, including these great pieces, my 31 party is still open until Monday November 6th.  I would appreciate anything that you purchase under my party.  And I know that CJ (my consultant) would be as well.

It's Halloween!

Yes it is that time again when all the ghosts and goblins and pumpkins and more are out and about.

I love seeing pictures of my friends kids and grandkids all dressed up for this kids holiday.  

I remember when kids were allowed to be kids for this holiday and not worry about being politically correct.  You know like the Peanuts Gang.

Or the cute little furbabies that you can see posing for pictures.

But I also like to see some of the "funnies" 
so I had to share these that I have seen 

Don't hate me for these ...

Hope you have a wonderful day filled with all kinds of fun things and maybe just a few visitors to your door.

A Limelight Holiday Bonanza!

I hope yall know I love my Tupperware, but you should also know by now that I am in LOVE, yes I said it, in LOVE with my Limelight by Alcone products.

Our skincare line is Leaping Bunny certified so now others can know that it is even more wonderful.  It is 
SKIN CARE that is free of harmful chemicals.
I know that my skin has been so much clearer (yes even at my age you can suffer from breakouts) and softer.  

Our makeup line is a Professional quality that you no longer need to be a Professional Makeup Artist to get.  I love knowing that I am using the same products that Actors and Actresses use in their professional lives ... ie working their craft.  Because lets face it, if it is good enough for them - I should be able to use them too because I am pretty special and so are YOU.

I love the look of the new lip liner colors.  

They are wonderful addition to the Onxy line that has these great lip colors as well as an amazing eye color pallet.  They are bold and beautiful and well just awesome.  I really love the creaminess of these but know that I don't need to worry about them "wearing" off early.  I can't wait to be using mine.

But another great boom for me will be released this week.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE eye shadows.  I guess its because I think that the eyes truly are the windows of the soul, so it is the first place I look and when you can "dress up" the windows it's a definite plus for me.

These colors look outstanding!

And of course the packaging is going to be looking pretty special too.

Now if lips are more your thing ... or if you just like to have special lippy colors too.  There will also be an awesome lip collection just for the holidays.  

It will include 8 of the enduring lip colors (ELC) and 8 of the fabulous glosses in mini!  And of course the packaging will be amazing too!

But if you don't want to have all of these products, even in a mini form, you can get a "tree ornament" that is 1 ELC and 1 gloss.  Or if you have more than 1 special person and want to spread the wealth around, these hangers will be perfect.

Oh and just because they are "minis", don't be fooled, they will last a very very long time!  All of our products are so highly pigmented that a little goes a long long way.

To make it easier for you to grab these products for the holidays I set up a Holiday Party  that I will have open until Nov 17th.

Remember, you can grab these holiday pieces and so much more at this party.  I know there are all kinds of things going on so you could end up with seeing some of these new products today and some on Thursday and maybe more next week ... I'm excited and I hope you will be too.
