Veteran's Day Celebration 2018

The kids had a day off from school during Veteran's day. Unfortunately, our own veteran (my husband)  had to go to work.  The company he works for does not give that day off to  veterans so he had no choice but to go.  Well, he can report off but since it was  the week where he had to do reports that  needs to be done, he went to work.
Anyway, to make it a bit special for him, we made him  a meal we could all share and enjoy at dinner time.  We made  a rolled up steak, mashed potatoes, cream corn and for dessert, we made his favorite fruit salad.
  I chose the rolled up steak to make but putting flavor  in the middle is  a challenge when the meat is  frozen.  Gladly, I have the Stainless Steel Marinade Meat Injector from  Cavetools.  This high grade stainless steel will never clog, bend, or break .  It includes 3 professional marinade needles for injecting flavor into chicken, turkey, beef, pork, brisket and any other foods.
This would be perfect to give as a gift set this Thanksgiving or Christmas.  You can get this injector  with 15% Off at  amazon using  Injector15 promo code.  Or you can buy it directly from the Cavetools website.
It was perfect using it  with these rolled up steak because I didn't have to  defrost the meat to  infused the  marinate flavor in it.  My husband love  steak with A1 sauce so I used that to enhanced the beef's flavor.

The kids  made their Dad personalized cards which he loved. These cards always makes my husband feel appreciated  for his 20 years of serving the military.  I am proud to be married to a veteran sailor.

BBQ Gloves: My New Max Heat Resistant Oven Mitts from Cavetools

Canning  the fresh produce is one of the most satisfying thing I have learned from my late father-in-law.  He's the one who taught me how to  do it when I first  came here in the States.  In the tropical country where I was born and raised, we don't really do canning as we can just grow the veggies   all though the year.  I miss  that about my first motherland, the weather and the  availability of fresh produce in our backyard garden.  Over here, I can only enjoy it during warm season since I don't have a green house.
Anyway, I received this BBQ gloves  from Cavetools to  test and review and I love that it is max heat resistant.  It is perfect to use for grilling and  also for my canning  at home.  I am so glad having a heavy duty  gloves now, I don't have to worry about my hand  getting burnt when I take out something  from the oven or when I grill outside.
Let's admit it, having a good  pair of oven mitt is  important especially when you love to bake or grill.  I  can  assure you, you will never burn your hands again with this one.  My husband loves it, he is the one who loves to bake sweet treat at our home so  this is like a gift for him to have.  Its heat resistance is up to 662°F for smoking, grilling, baking, or cooking.  I also love that  they designed it with extended cuffs because it protect your forearms when reaching into the back of the grill or oven.
I am almost finish  canning  for this season.  Our  weather  is getting colder each day and my  garden is almost done so I will be picking everything and clean the garden soon. 
You can buy this heat oven mitts via  amazon through this link  or directly  from Cavetools  website.  You can avail the 15% off by using  this discount code upon check out GrillGlove15.  Since Thanksgiving and Christmas are   almost around the corner, it would be advantageous to get more than one pair of this gloves.  Right now, there's an instant 10% off when you buy one or more.  This would be a great for your love ones who love to bake and grill.
Aside from the produce that I  picked from my garden, my son's godmother also gave me a basketful of  her peppers.  She loves gardening as much as I do but the difference is that, she doesn't  like spicy peppers so gave me most of her produce.  I decided to  pickle and freeze some of it so I will have some to consume  in the winter months.

She planted  more than 10 different kinds of peppers that I am not familiar  about but most of it are spicy so I stuffed and baked the  big ones and pickled some and freeze  the rest.
Cavetools has so many cool kitchen tools.  I got this  jalopeño coorer from them as well.  It's awesome in removing the  core of the peppers.
I am always happy serving my family an organic  food that we grew.  The canned  tomato sauce comes in handy  with this kind of dishes.  I never have to buy tomato sauce again when my garden is doing good because I can enough to last  for a year until the next gardening season comes.
Ever since I was a kid, I love eating spicy food.  My Mom was never  fond of spicy stuff but I  got my father's trait of eating super spicy food.  I was his  eating partner when it comes to spicy food.  Just talking about it makes me tear up, I miss him so much, he was a great cook and I miss all the food he  always cook for us.

The Step-By-Step Guide to Owning Your Own Restaurant Franchise


Being a great cook is something that is sure to please your friends and family. It is also, however, a talent you can create a very profitable enterprise on. People love great food and great service, and if you have the know-how and will to turn your cooking skills into a business, there should be nothing holding you back. Build not just a restaurant, but a franchise, and you can then secure your future, your children’s future, and even your grandchildren’s future. All you need to do to start is to follow these steps:


1.   Start Your Own Restaurant and Make it a Hit

The first step to owning a franchise is to start your first restaurant. Create a menu, a business plan, and take these two items to investors. You can either take out a personal loan from a bank or rely on capital investors or angel investors in order to get the funding you need.

To save costs, it is wise to then rent out an existing restaurant space so that you do not need to pay for the high costs of installing a kitchen, and can instead work on creating the atmosphere that will initially bring guests in.

Great customer service and great food will go a long way. Once you are a success, you can then start the process of selling your brand and building a franchise.

2.   Hire a Lawyer to Start the Franchising Process

There are a lot of different legal processes and requirements when it comes to creating a franchise. Not only do you need to adhere to the law, but you also need to create the contracts that your new franchisees will follow. Your franchises are your brand, and creating a consistent brand is how you all will succeed.

3.   Be Very Selective with Your New Franchisees

The reason why franchises are so lucrative to the owners is that it means other businesspeople come in and invest in you and your company. This allows you to grow profits and reach without putting up the cash in front. Just because someone has the money, however, doesn’t mean they will always be a good fit. You want to carefully vet each new franchise owner before you sign a deal with them.

4.   Build a Network System for Your Franchises

One part of a consistent brand is to provide consistent service. This is best done when all of your franchises operate under one program. Having the same POS system and set of rules and regulations will help each franchise continue your high level of quality. When you create this program, you will also want to invest in a Network as a Service (NaaS) like Masergy in order to sync up all systems, even from remote areas. Linked systems will allow you to monitor quality control and offer help and assistance to your franchisees as required.

Owning a franchise can be very lucrative, but it is a never-ending job. Not only do you need to operate your own business, but you also need to support your franchisees to promote consistent service and quality.

Hot Wing Bar Tips

Whether you own a restaurant or you're in charge or the food for a special event, hot wings are items that you could include on the menu. An easy way to organize these small pieces of chicken is to make a hot wing bar. Before getting started, there are a few tips to keep in mind so that your bar is a success and so that everyone gets the kind of hot wings they want. 
Start with the freshest chicken possible. Instead of only one kind of hot wing, consider making a few different sauces or breading for your wings so that guests have a variety instead of just a hot flavor. You should also offer a few different levels of heat, such as mild to extreme for those who enjoy a hotter piece of chicken. Teriyaki and BBQ are good options to have on your wing bar along with hot flavors. 
Aside from chicken wings, offer a few types of vegetables or dips. Celery and carrot sticks are good options to consider and tend to tame the heat that is delivered by the hot flavors. Properly label the wings that you make so that everyone can easily detect the various sauces that are used. You could put all of the hot wings at one end of the bar with the other types of wings that you prepare at the other end to keep the flavors separate. Arrange your wing bar so that both sides have the same wings. This will make it easier for everyone to get the chicken that they want without reaching across the bar and without going back through the line on the opposite side. Think about the number of people you have invited or the number of people who have frequented the establishment when you begin preparing your chicken so that you don't have a lot of extra pieces left at the end of the day.

Your Ultimate Hangover Survival List



Hangovers are something that most people will experience during their adult life. Often, they bring splitting headaches and bouts of nausea, and they can take up precious time on your weekend that you could alternatively be spending with your family or enjoying some fun activities. Ideally, you should be taking it easy when you are suffering from a hangover, as this gives your body the valuable time it needs to recover properly. However, there are some handy tricks you can follow which can help you speed up this process. Not only will they have your body and mind back to their usual happy self, but they can prevent your hangover from turning into a dreaded two-day ordeal.
Hydrate yourself

When you drink lots of alcohol, your body becomes dehydrated. This dehydration makes your headaches worse and can also cause dizziness and sickness. Resolving this problem is easy when you commit to drinking more than your usual recommended daily intake of water when you are hungover. However, your body will also need to replace the vitamins and nutrients that were lost, which is why many people choose to visit www.resetiv.com to have a double dose of hydration and vitamins. In the space of a few hours, thankfully, the toxins can be removed from your body so that it can begin its proper recovery.
Take a shower

Waking up feeling groggy on a hangover is one of the worst feelings. Sometimes, drinking can cause you to sweat more, which can make you feel worse. The first thing you should do when you wake up after a night of drinking is to jump in the shower. Having one can help you feel revived, and can also bring you back to reality if you are still feeling wobbly. Having some refreshing citrus scents to wash with can be an extra help, and some people even choose to have a cold shower to wake them up more.

Have plenty of naps

Unfortunately, your body will have suffered from a bad night of sleep the night before, even if it feels like you slept heavily. This is because alcohol interrupts the sleep cycle that people usually experience each night. With this in mind, it’s truly no wonder people feel sleepy when they are hungover! After your shower, you should wrap yourself in cozy clothes and relax somewhere comfortable in your home. With a comforting show on television, you can indulge in short naps throughout the day.

Order a takeout

Sometimes, hangovers can bring with them an unhealthy amount ofanxiety alongside the usual hangover symptoms. This can mean you need your favorite comfort food to help you feel better. While cooking a wholesome meal is best for your body, it is likely that you might not feel up to preparing and cooking a meal when you are hungover. In any case, there are numerous healthy takeout places you can order from. However, there is also some evidence to suggest that your usual takeout will give your body the salts and carbohydrates it needs, which other foods might not have.
