The Kupp Review

As a Moms Meet, Mom Ambassador Blogger I get the opportunity learn about, and try the latest in "green" products for the family. The Kupp is one of these products.

These kid friendly glasses are not just cute and functional but they are better for the environment and your kiddos. These "Kupps" are made with recyclable and certified lead and cadmium free glass and a BPA free silicone sleeve. You can say goodbye to all those plastic kid cups! That's exactly what my husband did when we received our Kupp's for review. These fun reusable drinking glasses look great, are made small for little hands and little tummies, and the silicone sleeve helps protect the glass from breakage. Your little one can drink like a big kid without you worrying. They come in four bright colors; green, red, blue and orange.

Creator of the Kupp, Kate Oliver was originally inspired to design a set of colored glasses, one for each child. That way they each had their very own drinking glass to use and keep clean. Her boys loved them and the result was a cleaner kitchen with a lot less plastic. While we only have one child I can tell you we had way too many plastic cups in our cupboard that were taking up way to much space. Penelope now has four, with a few princess emblazoned stragglers she couldn't part with, and she loves them.

She does have a suggestion for Kate, a pink Kupp!

You can purchase these in a set of four or individually online. Be sure to like The Kupp on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

Happy Fall! Now if only the weather would start acting like it!

Swap-bot- Trick or Treat

I received a swap package today, on a Sunday! This was for a Trick or Treat swap and the person that sent to me is Rabbitfreedom from Brooklyn, NY.

She sent me a couple of tea bags and cocoa. A couple of loose Halloween stationary cards. Some Halloween craft stickers. A Freaky Frankie magnetic drawing toy that Penelope is loving. And a bag filled with some small Halloween candy's. Everything was in the cute bat trick or treat bag that is going to come in handy. :)

Start Swapping!

A New Me

I am lame! I have not been keeping up with my menu posts. I have actually been pretty busy lately. Been working a lot more then expected and running Penelope around, trying to get posts up on my other blog Girly Girl Giveaways, keep the house up and the cooking done and all the errands ran. By the time evening comes around all I want to do is lay on my bed and zone out. All you moms out there that manage all of this and more with more then one kiddo...You are Awesome!

So...while I am still trying to get healthier and lose some weight and watch what I eat, I don't think I will keep posting my daily meals. I will however keep you posted on my progress and of course share some yummy recipe and meal ideas. While I have not weighed since the last time when I was 17 pounds less I did get told by another person yesterday that I looked like I lost some weight. Wheee! Chris just left for work and I am going to try to get back on track after a few days of chowing down some yummy grub before I weigh again, I will keep you posted!

Peanut Hottie Review

What's better then a hot cup of cocoa on a cold winter's night? Hot peanut butter! What?!

I was giving the opportunity to try Peanut Hottie, the first ever hot peanut butter drink. Just imagine taking a sip from your mug and tasting a warm peanut buttery beverage that is rich and not too sweet.  Be warned all you peanut butter lovers, this stuff is good. Peanut Hottie also comes in Peanut Butter & Chocolate. Could life get any better? My favorite candy bar is anything with peanut butter and chocolate. This is like my dream candy bar in liquid form. Everyone in our home has been enjoying Peanut Hottie. Chris loves the straight Peanut Butter flavor while my daughter loves the Peanut Butter & Chocolate with a whip cream topping. I would chose Peanut Hottie over a hot cup of chocolate any day. It is so easy to make too! You just add a few scoops into a cup of hot water, stir and enjoy.

  • Made with real peanuts.
  • Caffeine Free.
  • No artificial additives.
  • No artificial colors.
  • Under 100 calories per cup.
Visit the Peanut Hottie website and you can also find some recipes to get your peanut butter fix using Peanut Hottie.You can find Peanut Hottie in Wal-mart stores nationwide. Each 9.15oz jar contains approximately 13 servings and sells for under $5.00.

A New Me- Salmon Cakes

It's been awhile! I have been busy with work, Penelope and hanging out with Chris. We've eaten out a few times and I have not made the best choices. I have not weighed myself because I don't want to be discouraged. Trying to get back on track now. Chris will be leaving for work in a few days, it seems so much easier to stick to my diet when he is gone but I don't blame him. He knows one of my favorite things to do is try new restaurants and he is a good husband for taking me out to do that.

Today's Menu

Breakfast- Hot link and fried egg.

Lunch- Chili cheese dog

Dinner- Salmon cakes and steamed broccoli.

Salmon Cakes

1 lb. Salmon fillet
1 Egg
1/2 Cup of mayonnaise
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tbs. Lemon juice
About 7 crushed saltine crackers
Onion powder
Old Bay seasoning
Cajun seasoning
Cooking oil

Preheat oven to 350. Place salmon on a baking sheet that has been oiled with olive oil. Sprinkle salt on salmon and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes depending on thickness of fillet. In a bowl flake the salmon into pieces, skin removed and add all remaining ingredients minus the cooking oil and flour. Form into 5 large cakes, dust both sides with flour and fry in cooking oil until brown and crisp on both sides. Serve with tartar sauce.
