Traveling Wine Tasting & Snack Set

I had a great time at our Tupperware Organization Sales Meeting/Rally on Monday night!  Lots of fun, training, tips & recipes are always a part of the evening. 

This rally had a Tourist theme, because it is getting closer to vacation time (Yay!) and also because Steff was giving away a cute travel-themed rolling suitcase FULL OF TUPPERWARE!

She asked us all to dress like tourists & to bring a travel idea to share, using Tupperware.  I put on my pedal pushers, flip flops and Hawaiian shirt, and also put together a wine tasting & snack set to keep in the car.  More than once, my husband & I have been on a "drive" and decided on an impromptu picnic.  Nothing worse than having to buy a cheap corkscrew, knife, plastic glasses and paper plates for a little wine & cheese!  Especially when you have all these thing at home. :(

This kit is now safely stowed in the trunk of my car.  We're ready for wine & snacks anytime!

First a note:  I have not been able to log into this blog for a few days.   This morning, everything is fine.  Have any of you had this problem recently?

Tupperware's new Winter/Spring catalog has some new products that I just love!  Counterscaping Containers for liquid and dry products, are pretty enough to sit on your counters, convenient to your prep & cooking area.  I've included the link to a 2-minute video about them, below.  I love having ingredients at hand when I'm cooking.  I am also NOT a member of the clear counter club!   Those who know me, know I love my stuff around me. :)  That being said, I can see these containers on a nice tray, stashed in a cupboard or pantry, and brought out only when needed.

Liquid Container Set - $39

Dry Seasoning Container Set - $36

It would be great to hear what you think about this new product!  So please leave a comment, either way!  Thanks!

Focaccia Tiles

I've been looking at the "Food & Drink" category on Pinterest again!  It is a constant source of inspiration for me.  This morning, I found this gorgeous photo and delicious-sounding recipe for Focaccia Tiles.

This recipe presents so many possibilities!  There must be hundreds of yummy things with which to top this no-knead focaccia bread.  The author's choices are just a place to start.  One topping for me would be Butter-Balsamic Caramelized Onions.  What would you like to add?

Next time I am having friends for drinks & snacks, this will be on the menu!  I'd probably cut it smaller, just nibble size. 

It's 4:52 am & now I'm craving caramelized onions. LOL!


P.S.  It's a double sale flyer week @ Tupperware!  You can shop from TWO sale flyers, for this week only.  The Modular Mates® Storage containers are still on sale, and there is a really cute set of Valentine's Day Canisters, too! *Ü*

Oh My Darling, Clementine!

I love this time of year!  One of my favorite fruits, the Clementine, is abundant & grown right in my own "neighborhood".  These little beauties, a type of mandarin orange, are sweet, easy to peel, and almost always seedless.  One perfect little package...

I found a recipe for Clementine sorbet on Pinterest that sounds delicious.  I am going to try it this weekend.  Here's the photo, and the link to the recipe is in the caption.

The Most Expensive Food Product In Your Kitchen!

Today, I'm writing about the most expensive food product most of us have in our kitchens. Do you know what that product is?

Pretty, but not the best storage method.

It is the Spices & Dried Herbs you have on your shelf. Depending on where you live, and the type, these can cost $8 to $10 an ounce.

These products last about 6 months, with normal storage. You take the top off a jar of spices, remove the airtight, tamper-proof seal, and the replace the top. The container is no longer air-tight. The biggest enemies of your spices & herbs are, light, heat & air! (Never store your spices above or next to the stove.)

You can add the bug problem in there, too! They are especially fond of paprika and chili powder products.

If you have had to replace or purchase new spices as you began your seasonal baking and cooking, you know how costly it can be.

The solution? Enter the Tupperware Spice Containers and Carousel!

Tupperware Spice Containers Complete Set with Carousel

These containers are on sale for at a 40% discount! (This sale ends on Jan, 13, 2012) They have features that will help you store spices in an organized manner AND keep them fresh up to 10X longer!

· Virtually liquid & air-tight

· Frosted sides help diffuse light

· Clear front panel for easy ID of contents

· Seal has a shaker side & a pour/scoop side

· Stackable

· Set contains 8 1-cup & 8 1/2-cup shakers

· Carousel fits in most standard cabinets.

The complete set is $47 (save $32). You can also purchase the shakers without the carousel, in sets of 4. The 1-cup shakers are $11 (save $8) and the 1/2-cup shakers are $9 (save $6).

You can shop for these by clicking on either the sale flyer or catalog photo in the right sidebar.  If you have any questions, just click the "email me" button, and I'll be happy to help!

P.S.  You really need two of these.  One for your baking spices, and one for your cooking spices, blends & rubs. 

Here's another great tip:
  • Fill one large container with bandaids, ointment & alcohol swabs (most cuts happen in the kitchen).
  • Fill another large container with toothpicks.  They shake out easily.
  • And if you're REALLY organized, fill a third with a small spool if clear polyester thread, a pkg. of needles and a small pair of scissors.  You're ready for a quick button fix!
