REVIEW: Thomas & Friends Adventure On The Tracks 6 disc DVD Set

Review by Aimee

Can you go wrong with Thomas & Friends? Well, we haven't been disappointed. :)
Adventure on the Tracks is a new 6 disc DVD set that my kids are definitely into. With 228 minutes of video, your kids will have something new to watch for say, a long drive to your vacation destination!? Is it time for another one of those? LOL!
  • Thomas and the Jet Engine: Always expect the unexpected on the Island of Sodor! Thomas gets a surprising push from a jet engine, Percy lets his imagination runaway with him, Harold makes a horse fly, and Salty and Fergus prove they're useful on and off the tracks.
  • Percy's Ghostly Trick: Discover laughs and surprises around every bend! Thomas thinks he's seen a  ghost, Percy puffs into a giant pile of hay, Oliver encounters some troublesome trucks, and Donald and Douglas rescue a mischievous engine.  
  • Thomas comes to Breakfast:  Everyone learns important lessons about good behavior when Thomas shows off a little too much, Diesel causes trouble between the other engines and Gordon finds out that sabotage can backfire.  
  • Rusty to the Rescue: Thomas and his friends discover that fun and excitement never end! Join in the adventure as little Rusty sets off where only big, brave diesels dare to go, and Duke gets rescued and reunited with Stuart and Falcon.  
  • Steamies vs. Diesels: Find out just how much the steamies and diesels have in common when they put aside their differences and start working together to keep Sir Tophams Hatt's railway running smoothly.
  • Percy Saves the Day: Learn the importance of listening to others when Thomas ignores Percy's wobbly track warning Rusty sets off to save a reckless Duncan, and Fergus proves himself to be really useful.  
With 36 episodes of Alec Baldwin's voice (I love 30 Rock! I had to throw that in, I love that he narrates it along with George Carlin ;) ) you will be set! lol! Check out Thomas and Friends cute site! As you go to purchase, perhaps this DVD, your kids can enjoy playing some of the fun games available featuring their favorite engine, Thomas!

I received for free the above dvd set in order to conduct a review.  All opinions are 100% my own.

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!
