Homemade Tartar Sauce


So, I can't find tartar sauce at the store to save my life.  I suppose I could have asked somebody.....   Then it occurred to me,  I probably have all the ingredients at home to make it myself!  AND I did!  I decided to look at a few recipes and then create my own.   I'll tell you right now that there have been no food poisoning issues. :):)  In fact it's delicious!  Since it's my own recipe I'm going to name it...

Tartar Sauce Merrill
(because I created it - Merrill is my last name lol )

1 c light mayo
2 T sweet relish
2 T lemon juice
1 1/2 chopped onion (I used dried)
1/2 T chives
salt & pepper to taste


mix it altogether and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.  It's better after 3 hours.
will last in refrigerator for 3 days so don't make a ton. :)

Coupons:
Vlasic relish .55/1 printable (will round to $1 at Smith's making it .39!)
Kraft Mayo $1/2 printable

I have to say that sometimes in a pinch, I just use Miracle Whip, cut up some pickles, add a little pickle juice into my miracle whip, stir it up til creamy, and serve that instead. My kids and husband love it and its quite tasty! I'll keep this recipe on file as well. Thank you! :)

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
