ltd commodities #giveaways

The New Year is here and it is now time for the best football party of the season!  All month long, all roads lead to football, finger foods, and fun!  While everyone is getting ready for the Big Game next month, LTD brought to my attention several fantastic necessities every great host will need.

First, the lady of the house needs new serve-ware, especially new appetizer serving platters!  LTD offers several NFL Gameday options, as well as a traditional white that will be suitable for future events too!  The fantastic serving bowls below are 23oz ceramic bowls that are dishwasher and microwave safe!


My favorite serving set is the football field platter and football bowl (below).  I think I love this set the best because I can use it for any football event: college game day, rivalry weekend, and my boys’ sports themed birthday parties.


Platter set includes: Platter, 12″ x 8-1/4″ x 1-1/2″ and Dip bowl, 4 oz.

The man of the house will want a few things, just for him, too!  NFL Drink sets with eight cups and matching coasters will make him and his guests feel like the king of the castle.  What I am most impressed with is the price! You have to see it to believe it for yourself!  Take a guess and then hop over to check for yourself to see if you were right.  LTD has amazing prices that I cannot believe!  Go HERE now, go take a look and come right back.


Baby’s First Big Game!  Wrap your little one in a cute baby blanket sporting your favorite team’s logo!  These blankets make adorable baby blankets or throws for the bigger kids to snuggle up with on the couch.

About Paddington:

From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (HARRY POTTER), PADDINGTON tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you.” and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.

Starring Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Nicole Kidman, and Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington.

Baked Salmon with Vegetable Curry Recipe + Giveaway  #RealisticResolution #coupon #review

Can you believe that it’s already 2015? Every year as January rolls around I tend to think about resolutions. I don’t always make them because I usually don’t stick to them but I tend to try to get in shape, eat better, become more organized – you know, the usual.  The eating better actually started about 3 or 4 months ago and I’ve been rather successful. It’s always nice to find new healthy recipes that taste good.

Baked Salmon with Vegetable Curry Recipe + Giveaway  #RealisticResolution #coupon #review

With lean protein and natural omega-3, experts recommend eating seafood at least twice a week! Eating seafood at least twice a week can aid brain development, promote heart health, help fight obesity and improve your overall health.

My husband loves salmon so I was looking for a great and healthy recipe. I purchased Gorton’s Classic Grilled Salmon.  I also found a great recipe in the SparkPeople Cookbook.  I worked in a pharmacy all through college and one of the pharmacist’s wife would bring in the best Indian Curry. I loved working his shifts because I knew I’d be fed well.  When I saw the recipe for Vegetable Curry I knew I had to try it.

Baked Salmon with Vegetable Curry Recipe + Giveaway  #RealisticResolution #coupon #review

You start by sautéing carrots and onions.  Then you add garlic, curry powder, cayenne, and turmeric until it smells fragrant.  It smells so good. Then you transfer it to a crockpot.

Baked Salmon with Vegetable Curry Recipe + Giveaway  #RealisticResolution #coupon #review

You add potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, chickpeas, and vegetable stock. Let it cook in the slow cooker for 6 hours on low.

During the last 15 minutes, add the peas and coconut milk.

That is when I cooked the salmon and brown rice. I love Gorton’s fresh packs.  You can bake the fish right in the pack.

When it’s done baking, you cut the pack and serve! It’s that easy.

9 Winter Tips plus a WaterSavers Travel Prize Package Giveaway



carwash disclaimer 9 Winter Tips plus a WaterSavers Travel Prize Package Giveaway


9 Winter Tips plus a WaterSavers Travel Prize Package Giveaway

Living in the Midwest I’m learning all sorts of new things about taking care of my car.  I didn’t realize that salt could rust a car so quickly and I’ve learned the importance of keeping my vehicle clean and salt free.
Americans’ love affair with their cars is well documented, along with the dollars they spend each year to keep them running.  This is particularly evident in the winter time when the harsh elements can challenge even the most conscientious car owners.  One thing’s for sure:  Keeping your vehicle in good condition will ensure a safer ride in the short term and a higher resale or trade-in value down the road. 
So, before the cold weather takes hold for good, we’ve included the following tips to help your vehicles weather just about any storm!
1. A clean car is your first line of defense against winter.  While the winter season typically takes a toll on your car, proper maintenance can go a long way to preserving your investment.   For example, according to the International Carwash Association®, getting a new wash and a fresh coat of wax before the temperature starts to fluctuate can be your first line of defense against winter elements like ice, salt, sand and slush.
Vehicular corrosion also occurs most quickly when temperatures rise and then fall below freezing.  That’s why most auto manufacturers recommend getting your car washed and waxed at a professional car wash twice a month, especially during the winter.
2. Using a WaterSavers® Car Wash is a strong first step to ensuring that your car will be ready to withstand the winter elements – inside and out.  It’s also a great way to protect the environment.  For example, these car washes typically use only 40 gallons (151.5 liters) or less of fresh water per car wash.  Learn more and find a WaterSavers wash here.
3. Rotate your tires. Most people know they should get their oil changed every 3,000 miles, but many forget their tires need maintenance as well. Tires should be rotated before winter and then again every 6,000 miles.
4. Add some winter weight to your oil. Changing your oil and filter is especially important during the winter. Drivers who live in a colder climate should consider changing to heavier, winter-weight oil during the winter months.
5. Take care of your wiper blades. Your windshield wiper blades are your first line of defense when the snow starts to fly. Make sure your wiper blades are in good, working order and replace them if you have doubts. It’s better to make this change now instead of finding out your blades aren’t working when you really need them.
6. Take your car in for a tune-up. Any noises, pings or sluggish starts you currently notice will only intensify as the temperature drops. It’s best to get your vehicle in for a tune-up as soon as possible to get any issues addressed.
7. Give your steering some power. Check your powering steering fluid each month, and make sure the car is warmed up before you do so. If you find the level is low, look for leaks in the hoses or pump. Low power steering fluid will make your car more difficult to steer, which is something you’ll want to avoid as the roads get slick.
8. Protect yourself from carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide leaks are dangerous at any time, but they are especially deadly during the winter when you will be driving your vehicle with the windows closed. Have your exhaust system checked to make sure no leak exists.
9. Apply the brakes. Besides the seatbelt, your car’s brakes are its most important safety feature. This is especially true in the winter when slippery conditions can make stopping difficult. Before the first snow fall, bring your car to an experienced mechanic to verify that your brakes are ready for the season.
Cold winter temperatures mean vehicle maintenance is even more important. By following these simple tips listed above, you’ll be able to ward off winter’s harshest advances, protect your investment and those who ride inside of it.
WaterSavers has created a prize package to help you feel prepared for winter.  One lucky reader will receive:

  • Thermal travel mug
  • Fleece travel blanket
  • Hand Mitt ice scraper
  • $30 VISA Gift Card
