Next Wednesday, November 11th is a Great Day in Our History and we would like to thank and honor all of the Veterans. We thank you for your service. Here is a list of Free Meals and Discounts to honor our Vets. http://themilitarywallet.com/veterans-day-free-meals-and-discounts/. Please contact any and all Vets you know and show your appreciation.
Tomorrow we head for the Thousand Trails in Palm Desert for 3 weeks. We will be setting up at the College of the Desert Street Fair every Saturday and Sunday except Christmas if our kids come down for a visit. Market is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. so we’ll be “early birds” those 2 days a week!. Booth # 272B on the west side. I’m sure it will take us a time or two to get it all organized like we want it. Having received some of our products on special, we wanted to pass them along to you, our faithful readers…more on that later in the newsletter.
TIP of the WEEK: Because we are such avocado nuts at our house and have one almost every night for dinner especially when we are in southern California and near Fallbrook, the Avocado Capital of the World, it is pretty easy to get them for a cheap price and they are oh so good. We use them in salads, on sandwiches (ever try a peanut butter sandwich with slices of avocados? Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!), or just to share. With the avocado tools we have, it makes preparing one really easy. I am asked very often how to decide if an avocado is ripe and we were told this when we toured an avocado packing plant years ago and I wanted to share. If you are purchasing them to have in a few days and not ripen right away, NEVER choose ones that the little button stem is missing and keep them in the fridge at 40 degrees so they will last. Here is a great article about how to take care of avocados. http://www.californiaavocado.com/blog/how-to-ripen-an-avocado.
Speaking of avocados, we have some new products that we love. Besides the Avocado tool
which we have featured before and is one of my very favorite tools and the Avocado Keeper,
we also have 2 new tools for avocados. One is an avocado slicer
which makes perfect slices of avocados for sandwiches, burgers, salads, etc. And a great idea for serving guacamole and dips this cute 3 piece Guacamole bowl
with lid and ladle. You can find them all on our website and they would make great gifts. www.rvspacesavers.com
Product on Special: As promised, we received a special on these Herb & Veggie Choppers (now called Salsa Makers) and wanted to pass the savings on to you. From now until midnight on Black Friday 11-27-15 buy one chopper and receive a 2nd one for half price. What great gifts and stocking stuffers. Or buy one for the house and another for the RV. https://rvspacesavers.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=164. There is a separate link for it on our website to make sure you get the sale.
And from our readers:
Loved using the rice steamer recently. My observation…. used the full amounts per instructions, as was doing a stir fry for a chapter pot luck… It made a bit of a mess in the microwave as there was some boilover. I won’t use quite so much next time, but the product itself was marvelous. And I love the idea of using it for veggies, too.
Safety reminder…. we were on our way EARLY this AM to our water aerobics exercise class. Saw a lady heading for her bus…. black umbrella, navy raincoat…almost invisible in the dark, rainy conditions. Also, our youngsters are out and about in dark jeans, navy jackets, etc. Be aware of how you are dressed. I almost hit a child in dark clothing, riding a bike with no lights or reflectors at dusk several months ago. Please drive safely. What a great reminder to us all!
Thanks Danise for all your ideas. I so appreciate you most always having a comment or two for everyone to think about. And while being here in Wilderness Lakes, we have met and visited with 2 couples who have attended our seminars in various rallies across the U.S. Such fun for us.
Great Places To Visit: This week we drove to the Oceanview Gem Mine in Pala, CA which is northeast of San Diego and southeast of Wilderness Lakes. While you are no longer able to go in to the mine, they do have a place where they bring tailings down from the mine and you can buy a bucket and sift through to find some gems. http://www.palagems.com/mining.htm. We did not do it but there were lots of folks who did and several found some beautiful small gems. They are only open on weekends for mining.
