GIVEAWAY: Strawesome Reusable Glass Straws! -CLOSED-


Strawesome (first of all, coolest name ever!) sells reusable drinking straws made of glass!!  The straws are made from the same glass that is used to make Pyrex.
Borosilicate glass is non-toxic, beautiful, and made in the USA.  You can also wash them in the dishwasher!  Which is always a huge plus with me.

I received a straw to review and I absolutely love it!  It cleans really easy.  They sell brushes, but if you rinse it with warm soapy water when your done using it, a brush isn't necessary.  It comes clean and you can see that it's clean.  The straw feels super sturdy and I'm not scared at all that it's going to brake on me.  Also, I prefer to drink juices with a straw for the sake of my teeth, so I really love having a straw around always.  And I don't know why but I drink WAY more water when I'm using a straw, so I've been very well hydrated lately. :)

Not only are they better for the environment and not leaching toxins into your liquids, they are also beautiful!!  You can get the reusable straws in sizes 6" - 10" skinny, regular, bent, or smoothie.  These would make great gifts!

Strawesome offers a lifetime guarantee against breakage, and if you don't love it you'll get a full refund.   They start at about $5.50.  Price depends on size.  To learn more about the product you can follow these links:

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)

Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

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!
