Thank Goodness For Frozen Peas!

Not only are peas one of my favorite vegetables, but they also make great ankle ice packs.  For someone who falls a lot (my friends call me a klutz, but I just say I'm 'special'), it is imperative that I always keep frozen peas in my freezer.  From my experience, I have learned that they are much better (and cheaper!) than any normal ice pack as they conform so nicely to your ankle

They are also so much better than frozen french fries, which I was forced to use in France, or frozen minestrone soup, which I had to use in Italy as we couldn't find frozen peas. (I told you that I fall a lot, right?)

I was at Smith's recently and discovered that frozen peas are 10 for $10.  Boy, am I glad I picked up several packages!   I haven't been able to find any coupons for frozen peas, so if you know where I can get some, let me know.  I gotta keep my freezer stocked up!

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!
