The Tupperware Chop 'N Prep Chef.

Tupperware Corkscrew and Wine Accessoeries Set
My husband put away his expensive "rabbit-ear" cork extractor in favor of this corkscrew!  The foil cutter is really sharp and although we never have left over wine :o), I know those who do, love being able to "vacuum seal" their open bottles with the reuseable cork & pump.

Tupperware Chef Series Santoku Knives
These are my new favorite knives!  They are well balanced, very sharp and make slicing a cinch.  They are at an incredible price point for professional quality knives!

Fun, Giftable Ideas

Here are a couple of cute ideas for gift-giving this Halloween & on into the Christmas season.  I have them decorated for Fall/Halloween, but you could certainly wrap them up in green and red for Christmas or blue for Hanukkah. Think teacher gifts, office exchanges, Secret Pal, drop in Holiday guests. 


The tall containers are Tupperware's Spaghetti Dispensers.  These are one of my favorite TW products!

The special insert allows for easy spaghetti pouring and measuring. Great for breadsticks too! Contents stay fresh and quantities visible. Clear container with choice of seal color, Passion (red) or Brilliant Blue.  The cost is $11.00.  Capacity/Size: 4 ¾-cups (1.1 L); 11 ¼"H x 3 ½"Dia. (28.5 x 9 cm)

They are made to look like sand art.  The container on the right is filled with Sand Art Brownie Mix, and the one on the left is Best Bean Soup.  The directions and an accompanying poem are on the cards attached.  You'll also notice that the soup container has one of our Tupperware Midget containers with the soup seasoning attached.

Cute, even if I do say so myself! (o:

The Pumpkin Poop is just candy corn, purchased in individual bags, stapled to a poem card.  I used a baggie here, but I would definitely use a couple of the little pre-packaged bags to avoid any worries for parents of your little ghosts & goblins!

Like these ideas? Here's your chance to have the "recipes" and poems for yourself.  Become a Follower of Today's Organized Kitchen blog, leave a comment that you have done so, and I'll send them out to you as my gift.  Please note: These will come in the form of an attached Word document.  This will allow you to design your own cards.  If you are already a follower, just leave me a comment and I'll get them out to you, too!

Enjoy!  Chris

Home-Made Cream Cheese

I decided to try my hand at making my own cream cheese since I needed the whey that is a by-product of the process to make sauerkraut.  I have to say that both the cream cheese AND the sauerkraut were delicious!

It's really so easy.  Well, except for the first step!  Which is, finding anything but low fat buttermilk!  (Fortunately, I have since found a couple of places that carry whole buttermilk and also raw milk. Yay!) 

I was determined to make the cream cheese, so I used the low fat buttermilk anyway.  The result was very tasty, even if not as good as it will be in the future, when I use the whole buttermilk.

Step 1: 
I placed a colander over a glass bowl to collect the whey.  I placed several layers of cheesecloth in the colander and poured the quart of butter milk into the cheesecloth.  I covered it with another layer of cheesecloth to keep out any critters that might happen by.  I let this sit overnight on the counter.



 
Step 2:
First thing next morning, I tied the "cheese" loosely in the cheescloth and hung it on a wooden spoon over the colander.  This was to allow every last bit of whey to drip out.  This sat all day on the counter.



Step 3:
In the evening, I untied the bundle of cheesecloth and scraped the cream cheese into a dish.  This was the second hardest part of the process.  It really wanted to stick to the cheesecloth, and I wanted every last bit of it!



Step 4:
Collect all that wonderful whey and place in a glass mason jar in the refrigerator.  It will keep for a month or so.  I've already used most of it for sauerkraut!




Finished Cream Cheese
Below, is the finished cream cheese.  We have had it plain and mixed with fresh thyme and dill from the herb garden.  Delish! 


I really think you should give this a try!  It was easy, fun and I think kids would enjoy the process.  The real benefit is that you get something yummy with no undesireable ingredients!

Yum!

I am a BIG FAN of zucchini!  I like it any way it's prepared.  I happened across a recipe for Zucchini & Red Onion Salad on-line and I'm making it tonight! 

Thought it would be a good idea to share.  Some of you may have lots of zucchini.  Mine isn't doing well this year - weird weather I guess.  Thank goodness for the Farmer's Market!


The recipe is from Martha Stewart's Everyday Food Newsletter and you can access it HERE.  There are 50+ summer squash & zucchini recipes at that link!

Enjoy!  Chris

How Green Are You?



This is the "kit" I used for my Earth Day Driveway Dashes.  I put it in the trunk of my car, drove to a couple of  friend's driveways, and held quick, 30 minute demos on Tupperware's sustainable GREEN products for my girlfriends and their neighbors. 

It was a ton of fun, and gave me the opportunity to do something worthwhile for Earth Day and for my business!

First, I want to share Tupperware's drinking water & hot beverage solutions. 

Did you know that 85% of the PET water bottles purchased NEVER GET RECYCLED! It takes them 1000 years to biodegrade.  Please don't use them!  Tupperware has reusable sports bottles, sipper cups for kids, and insulated tumblers with straw seals.  Drink your own tap water and save money.  Did you know that most of the water in those purchased bottles came from municipal water supplies? 

Then, there is the Styrofoam coffee cup...Styrofoam NEVER DEGRADES!  This stuff remains in our our landfills forever!  The paper cups are a better choice, but even better is a reusable hot beverage mug.

Next, are our microfiber products. 

Super absorbent and durable these are the workhorse of your cleaning arsenal.  No more paper towels needed for clean-ups, washing windows, or dusting.  These towels also dry dishes in a flash! 

The towels on the left side of the container our our Microfiber Chef's Towels.  These are exactly what you need in the kitchen!  They have an ultra-tight weave & larger size.  (These are my favorite.)

The towels on the right are our Microfiber Kitchen Towels. I have stacks of these, and use them for just bout everything.  Not pictured, are the Microfiber Window & Mirror Cleaning Towels.  These you use dry with you favorite cleaning product, for a streak and lint free shine!  Keep reading.  I have a recipe for home-made window & mirror cleaner.

The two sponges in the front of the container combine the convenience of the sponge with a microfiber cover.  The orange sponge has a waffle weave which is great for scrubbing,  The yellow sponge has a very soft weave for gentler cleaning, like on cars or wipe-up on furniture.  You can see the rest of our microfiber in the Spring-Summer 2010 Catalog.

Last, but certainly not least, we have our FridgeSmart® Containers. 

These will save you so much money!  No more tossing fresh fruit or vegetables because they spoiled before you could use them!  I wrote about these previously, and you can read about them HERE.

To purchase any of these products on line, click on the Spring-Summer 2010 Catalog photo in the sidebar.

Home-made Window Cleaner:
In a spray bottle marked "Window/Mirror Cleaner" mix:
8 oz. Tap Water
8 oz. White Vinegar
8 oz. Rubbing Alcohol
This stuff works great!
So...how green are you?

Modular Math - How to Customize Your Kitchen

**Reminder** Right now, Modular Mates® are on sale at a 40% discount!

Here's how you can design your own customized cupboards and/or pantry. 

First, you need to know that Modular Mates® come in 4 Shapes and 5 Sizes.  These canisters were engineered to fit virtually ANY cupboard or pantry configuration, even your RV or boat.

Shapes: Oval, Super Oval, Square & Rectangle

Sizes:  Height of a 1, Height of a 2, Height of a 3, Height of a 4, Height of a 5.

Here's a hint.  If you are a "scooper" you'll probably like the square & rectangle containers.  If you're a "pourer" the oval & super oval are well-suited for that.  Or, if you like to pour some things & scoop others, use a combination of the shapes depending on the particular item.
























  1. Decide which of the 6 most common storage centers you will install.   The centers are: Baking, Snack, Breakfast, Pasta & Rice, Beverage, and Spice.
  2. Determine which cupboard and shelves you'll be using.  Measure the shelves front-to-back & side-to-side.  Also measure the height between shelves.  This is especially important if they are stationary.
  3. Complete the Custom Kitchen Planning Chart.  (You'll get the opportunity to request planning materials at the end of this post.)

















Remember, if the space between your shelves is 9", that is the height of a 4.  You can fill that space with one 4 container, one 3 + one 1 container, two 2 containers or four 1 containers, etc. (See the top/left set in the first photo above, as an example.)  Once you know what you want to store, you simply find the container shape & size that best holds that item and fits your storage space.

Tupperware's Modular Mates® are a unique and functional food storage and organization system.  This system will save you time, waste, space & taste!

Facts: The containers are dishwasher safe, and carry Tupperware's Limited Lifetime Warranty against chipping, cracking, peeling or breaking, under normal non-commercial use for the lifetime of the product.

To recieve your Custom Kitchen Planning Chart by email, CLICK HERE and complete the Contact Form adding "Planning Chart" in the comments section.  If you like my help to design your storage, you can mention that and I'll call you to discuss.

A Custom Kitchen

First, I apologize for not posting yesterday!  Sometimes, I just schedule too much for one day, you know?

Tupperware Modular Mates® are on Special for 40% off! 
You can view/purchase them or host an Online Party with your family & friends to earn some free!
CLICK HERE

Let's talk about why you want to customize, organize, sanitize and modularize your kitchen storage.



I know you're busy with family, work, travel, hobbies and life.  It's quite possible that your full schedule means that your kitchen storage doesn't get the attention it needs.  Disorganization can be frustrating and can lead to feeling overwhelmed and out of control. (Not to mention wasted time, space & money.)

A little organization can make a world of difference!  Do your kids or husband constantly ask "Mom! Where's the cereal, crackers, whatever"?  Are you constantly out of things you need to prepare a meal?  What if you could open your kitchen cabinets or pantry, take a look, and make a shopping list in less than 5 minutes?  Now that's organized! 




Have you ever found 3 packages of opened brown sugar, all hard as a rock?  Worse yet, you're ready to bake and there's no baking powder, ugh!  Or here's my favorite, the cracker box with 2 stale crackers in the bottom!

Now if that's frustrating, how about BUGS!?! 

Did you know that most of the bugs you find in your cupboards and pantry hitch-hiked home from the grocery store?  Think about this: Where does the grocery actually store boxes, bags & bottles before they get to the shelves?  That's right, a warehouse.  And try as they might to keep things clean (they do don't they?),  critters just happen in places like that.  What's more, the glue used in food packaging is usually grain/starch-based, for safety's sake.  Guess who just loves that?  Bugs do, of course.  They eat a little, drag their 6 little shoes through it, and even lay their eggs there!  Do you REALLY want those boxes in your kitchen?  If you do happen to bring home an infested product, if you put it in a Tupperware Modular Mate®, it will contain the pest and keep it from spreading into everything else.

Buying in bulk saves money.  Knowing what you have on hand, saves time.  Modular containers that fit YOUR cupboards, pantry, boat or RV, save space.  THAT's why I love Tupperware Modular Mates®!

C'mon back on Thursday and we'll learn about how to customize the containers to your space,  That's Modular Math!

Time to Get That Pantry Organized?

January is a time of resolutions for many people. If you are one of those, and getting organized is on your list, Tupperware certainly has some wonderful solutions!

Tupperware's Modular Mates® Containers are just the thing to organize your pantry or cupboards. And the best part? They're on sale at $40% off!

If you'd like your cupboards to be "show-off" ready, be able to save space, time and waste, this kitchen "system" by Tupperware is a must-have!




If you're really ready to get your kitchen storage in shape, be sure to visit Today's Organized Kitchen Blog over the next week or so.  I will be teaching you all about the benefits of having an organized, sanitized and modularized kitchen.  It'll be an online Tupperware demo you can attend in the comfort of your own home! You'll learn about how buying and storing in bulk can save $$, the 6 storage centers, Modular Math (how to determine which canisters are best for your kitchen), and I'll even throw in a recipe or two!  When you're ready to start, I'll send some handouts to guide the way.

I hope you'll join me!  If you have a particular storage issue or question, please leave a comment and I'll try to answer as the "demo" proceeds.  I just added a followers gadget in the sidebar. If you become a follower of this blog, you'll know as soon as I post something new, so that's a handy option.




I'll see you Monday for the first installment of this series!

Have a great Tupper day!
Chris
