Kwik Kut Food Chopper

NewImage

Mother always used this Kwik Kut Serrated Food Chopper when I was a little girl for chopping strawberries.  She swore by it, saying that berries release a lot more juice when chopped, rather than sliced.  And it's so much faster than slicing, just a few chops and you're finished.  She would put them in her wonderful stainless steel bowl, and make magic.  

Now I have her bowl and one of these choppers, thanks to Cousin Phyllis, who gave me one a few years ago after I mentioned that I wished I still had Mother's.  We have strawberries almost every single night this time of year.  I've fixed them so often, it only takes a few minutes to stem and chop a quart of berries.

You can still buy this great cutter on Amazon , they come in a double pack, a serrated and a solid, and they work so well.  You can use the solid one for chopping soft food, like boiled eggs and it's a great biscuit cutter.

Pair this chopper with that nifty strawberry stemmer that I blogged about last week, and you've got a winner!  Several of you have bought the stemmer and emailed me to tell me how great it is.  Well, this little chopper is a "must have"  as well

You can't go wrong with this, after all, Mother really did know best.  ;o)

Here's the link, you can scoop both of these up on Prime for $12.18

Or, if you prefer, you can just buy the serrated one for $2.35, but it isn't Prime, so you'll have to pay an additional $4.99 shipping.

Here's the link

And if you missed the post about how great this little strawberry stem remover is, here's the link for it.
 

Now go treat yourself and order these, trust me both of these items are just great.  Pinky swear they are.  ~ Jan

My happy place...

IMG 7214

 

It was a cool, rainy, damp morning in Heavensville today, but that didn't stop me.  I grabbed my breakfast, my coffee and headed down to the creek.  I contemplated life for fifteen minutes, and came home energized and ready to face the day.  Okay, so it was the coffee that energized me.  I know, I'm such a goober….

How about a giggle this morning...

Abby, she’s growing up too fast…

She’s has a new pink baseball glove and ball.  How can she be this old?  Where did our little toddler go???

She’s doing pretty good catching the ball, too.

Time to stop and pick Mama a dandelion.

And change into her shorts and visit the cows.

Oh my, what will she be doing this time next year?  And little Benjamin, he’ll be toddling around, pointing to the cows and talking.  I just want to freeze time,  but I can't, so I’m going to go now and cry because that’s what Grammies do when they get sentimental .  *sigh*

So precious….

But I don't want it to rain and turn cooler *sigh*

Mother lived by the Farmer's Almanac, and believed in all the old myths, Blackberry Winter, Dogwood Winter, and it does seem to get cool when these things are in bloom, but what kind of winter are we having this weekend?  Dogwoods and blackberries aren't in bloom yet.  I'm so enjoying this warm weather and now it's going to cool off again.  Drats!  I feel just like Snoopy!!!!!

I ordered those Fiskars yesterday, they arrived today.  Just can't beat Amazon Prime, no stores, no hassles, no gas, free shipping, no tax, cheapest prices.  Have I mentioned this before???  Only about a gadzillion times, but I'm old, I repeat, it's what I do...

Life is good.  Now I'm looking for something to prune!

R.I.P Annette Funicello

I idolized her as a teenager, then admired her courage as I grew older and watched her live such a difficult life with determination and grace.  You're at peace now, Annette, we will always remember you. 

Fiskars Pruning Shears

NewImage

Spring has sprung in Heavensville, so my friend, Trish, and hotfooted it to the most amazing greenhouse yesterday, an wondrous place with one of a kind plants, including a gorgeous black petunia, but anyway, the owner  was using this very pair of Fiskars Titanium Nitride Scissors to groom plants.  She went on and on about how marvelous they are, it's the small blade, let's you get right into the plant and she says to buy this style, as the titanium blade doesn't dull or rust.

And since I always share the good stuff, here you go, my gardening friends, only $14.30 from Amazon Prime, free ship, no tax.  It's a good thing.

Here's the click, enjoy!!!
