Boy are the colors ever getting beautiful out there. For those of you who are traveling right now, I am sure you are getting an amazing spectrum of the colors of autumn. That certainly is one of the great reasons to living in an RV or being a snowbird and getting to warmer weather before the snow and cold start knocking on the door. Enjoy those amazing vistas as you drive through this beautiful country.
TIP: What uses can you find for your gadgets?
What gadgets are you carrying in your RV and have you thought of ways you can use them other than what it was intended for? Living and traveling in an RV, we all know the need for space saving tips and ideas. Here are some ideas you may want to think about.
Carry a Pizza Cutter? Did you know you can use it to cut chicken strips, fudge, french toast, cheese and pancakes!
Got a Melon Baller…how about using it to shape mini meatballs for a party. Core pears, apples and seed tomatoes!
Egg Slicer…slice strawberries. kiwi, mushrooms, olives and deli cheese.
Love grapefruit and have some grapefruit spoons? Use them for removing seeds from peppers, tomatoes, squash and melons.
Avocado tool…use it to peel a kiwi by simply cutting of both ends and sliding the scoop inside the skin.
Tomato tool...use it to hull strawberries and as a bread knife for artisan breads.
A couple of new gadgets I like are the Oven Rack Push/Pull which is made of silicone and heat resistant to 645 degrees and the handle stays cool while using. It not only works on oven racks but also on pans you have in the oven as well. https://rvspacesavers.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&path=35&product_id=148
Another new gadget I really like is the Expandable Trivet. It also is made of silicone so is heat resistant and folds for easy storage. Works great to keep any kind of hot dish from slipping. I also use it sitting on the counter for removing hot things from the oven to the counter.
What tools do you have that can double duty? The options are endless. Just think outside the box.
Tip from reader and product discussion from last week: Last week we talked about the many things you could do with your Produce Keepers. Yvonne wrote that she loves them for cantaloupe and pineapple, especially pineapple. She says you need to make sure to drain them every few days. Thanks Yvonne…I had not tried eitherof them in the keeper but sure will now! Another comment from Joyce…I buy romaine lettuce hearts at Costco and they keep great for weeks as it’s just my husband and myself. Thanks Joyce.
Great Places to Visit: This country is full of great places to visit and surprises around every corner. Some times we just have to dig a little harder to find some of them like small towns with amazing museums that are well taken care of because the citizens are proud of their heritage. Nick Russell is writing a blog on Overlooked America which he is posting to Trips, Places to See and Things To Do. https://www.facebook.com/groups/291056790996931/.

Safe and happy travels.
