Fueled with MACRO Power!

 Volleyball season is back and my  daughter is  excited.  She doesn't play  a lot of sports but she loves  playing volleyball.  I think she got that from me because that's the only sport I played in college.  They played three games already and won two times.  They lost the  first game  but it was okay.  The team practices 3 hours a week and they are now getting better.  I am  impressed with our daughter's improvement.  She still does not have  the power that she needs to  serve the ball from outside the court but I think she is so much better compared to last year.   
During her practices, she always brings  some snacks and she was excited to see that I have the box full of her favorite nutbar.  She   tried this last year and loved it so now it is one of her favorite  energy bars to snack on.  Her favorite  picks are the ones with coconuts.  She immediately sorted through the box and  grabbed all the ones with coconut in it.    

What I love about  these nut bars is that they are  filled with  organic seeds and nuts.  They are powered by superfoods.  It's basically a plant-based  protein with all the ingredients  grown and not made.  There are different flavors available such as almond apricot, chocolate peanut butter  chips, ginger lemon, chocolate nuts and seasalt,  caramel coconut, blueberry lavender and many more.
It is not only my daughter and I who  loves these delicious  energy nut bars but  also my husband.  He loves to snack on this  during his break time at work so I  make sure to pack one on his lunch box.  It''s funny because I forgot to put one in his lunch yesterday and he  told me that he was looking for it   during his break time.  
I put one in my daughter's packed lunch for school and she  was happy to find  it.  I usually pack her a fruit cup or freshly cut fruits but this time I added the nut bar to surprise her and she just loved it.
I went to  my kids school  last week to help another  Mom with  a fund raiser for the school and I brought two of these and I gave her one.  She loved it and said that she  will look for this in the store. 
Working at home  has its consequences.  Sometimes, you get to  eat whatever because you are home and it's very easy to get them.  Having these healthy bars is  great because you get to eat healthy snacks.    
Gomacro's new macrobar is available in 12 unique ingredient  combinations: peanut butter chocolate chip, sunflower butter + chocolate, cashew caramel, peanut butter, , banana +almond butter, cashew butter, granola + coconut, almond butter + carob, cherries + berries, sesame butter + dates, apples + walnuts and the new one is the coconut + almond butter + chocolate chips.  I love all of the flavors, these are the kind of snacks I love.

Corned Beef and Rice

While looking at this qsc gx5  at Guitar Center online, I was also listening to  gospel music by Joey and Rory.  I remember when I was growing up, we didn't have TV but we always had a radio and my father love to cook while he listened to  old music.  He made me learn how to appreciate and eventually love old but good music.  He always told me that  no matter how simple the menu is, it would make it taste so much better  if you are listening to music  or  singing with it.  Corned beef and rice  were one of his "simple" dishes but it was always delicious.

Stainless Steel Electric Wine Opener with Auto Activation

Occassionally, my husband and I  drink  wine at home depending on the mood.  It's very seldom but when we  feel like celebrating, we   would buy a  bottle of wine and  drink some.  It is  nice to have  a wine bottle opener like this one that I  got from Ozeri.  It is an electric  stainless steel opener with auto activation.  It is pretty cool.  
This automatically activates to remove and eject corks when placed on a wine bottle.   This would be a great addition to your wine rack and would be a show piece when you  host a party.  
If you are looking for a  perfect gift for  wine lover in your life, this  would be great.  It opens a bottle of wine in just seconds with push button ease.  
It includes a compact foil cutter that doubles as a stand, along with a bonus pourer and stopper.  When we were still living in Korean, everytime some Korean friends would come over  at our house, they would bring   a bottle of wine.  I brought them when we moved back here but we never  opened any of it.  I told my husband that we can just keep it as a souvenir.  We have  a little collection here for display purposes only lol.
It has a built-in rechargeable battery that opens up to 60 wine bottles on a single charge.  It lights up when you use it and  it is cordless.  It is  made of high-quality stainless-steel that fits in the palm of your hand.
You can find this at different retailers such as Home Depot, KMart, Wayfair or if you want to avail the sale price, you can buy it via  amazon.  The prices vary depending on what  store outlet you buy it.  
I did not make a video when I used it but I found two videos that would show you how cool this wine wottle openere is. Thanks to Amy Gramelspacher and Kym for these videos on on Youtube.
