My easy Spaghetti Dinner

Standard

 

First I fry a pound or so of hamburger. I would fry some onions and garlic then put the hamburger in but I did not have an onion. So I started the hamburger and put in a 3 table spoons of minced garlic in it. And I used one of my skillets I bought from Sur La Table 🙂

 

 

Now this tool is an awesome little thing. It’s called a Mix N Chop! From Pampered Chef. I used to the help me in frying the hamburger. Oh yes and check out my skillet from Sur La Table it’s so easy to clean after use. I do let it cool down first. So it won’t warp.

Beveled pin wheel blades chop foods for even cooking and seasoning. High-quality nylon follows curves of cookware without scratching. Soft grip helps you comfortably grasp the handle. Heat-resistant to 428 F. 10 3/4″ Dishwasher-safe.

Here is the Spaghetti I cooked it for 12 min.

 

 

Okay I’m very sorry I do not have a home-made spaghetti sauce. I have never made a home-made sauce. I would love to make one that I can get red of the acid so my family would eat it. Heart burn this is why! I love spaghetti so I make it now my girls might have a little but my husband and son will not touch it because of heart burn.

So anyways I used this sauce one of my favorites. And it was really good!

 

Then I put it all together. And let all the flavors marry. Now this is how my Mom would make it. Well she loves elbow macaroni and so do I. But my husband and girls like long string spaghetti. So this is how I make it 🙂

 

 

And to top it off I put Cheddar Cheese. And it was very yummy.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog. I hope you enjoyed it 🙂

Oil, Salt and Pepper holders

Standard

 

This is where I keep my oil, salt and pepper. For a long time I kept my Olive Oil in a clear glass bottle. Then I read and heard that Olive Oil was to be kept in a dark place. So one day when I was at Sur La Table I found a new Olive oil holder.

 

 

Here it is! I have to tell you it was so funny when I was putting the Olive oil in it as you can see it’s not clear so I really did not know when it was time to stop pouring the oil in until it came out the spout hahahaha. And it landed on the cork lid of the salt holder that is the next picture.

 

 

This is the salt holder. Yes so on the cork lid a little less than half is a darker color than the rest. I may have to oil the whole  thing so I won’t have to see it like that 🙂 But I love it 🙂 It works for me!

 

 

Now Sur La Table does not have one for pepper. I’m thinking because they want you to get the one that grinds the pepper. I will get that one some day. But my awesome friend had 2 of these salt holders and she gave me one so I use it for the pepper.

 

 

They are all together on the counter in front of the stove just where I need them. I love fixing up my Kitchen and sharing my new things with you all.

Thank you for reading my blog about fixing up my house have a great coming up weekend 🙂

My new Skillets

Standard

Here is my new Hard-Anodized Nonstick Skillet Set, Green. I had received an email from Sur La Table and they had these 2 Skillets as a set for just $29.99. And I had to go and get them 🙂 Here is some info about my new skillets.

Hard-anodized construction—which is twice as hard as stainless steel—delivers fast, even heating and eliminates hot spots. Dupont® Autograph™ nonstick coating ensures excellent food release and easy cleanup.

Hollow-cast stainless-steel handles with colorful silicone fittings are ergonomically designed for comfortable grip and securely riveted for a lifetime of use. Set includes 9″ and 11″ skillets. Safe for most stove top heat sources, but not induction compatible. Oven safe to 400°F. Hand wash. Limited lifetime warranty.

That was the info from the ad from Sur La Table.

Here is a close-up for you 🙂

This is the bottom of the pan.

And this is how I store them.

Thank you for reading my blog I hope you enjoyed it have a great day

The Shelf for my big Bakers Rack

Standard

Here is the Bakers Rack I blogged about awhile ago. I got it for $20.00 on Craig’s list. When I bought it they gave me a piece of glass to make a shelf. But the more I thought about it the glass just was not working for me. So for a long time I had nothing there.

 

Here it is again with the bottom shelf a little different. Well what I was really wanting was cutting board for the shelf. I was   looking around to see if I could find one that big. It is 15 inch. Wide and 18 Long. We had gone to Wal-Mart and found one it was about 1 inch thick and 15 by 22. But I did not like the little gutter it had. I was not going to use it for cutting juicy things 🙂 Then one day while my husband and I where checking out the clearance sale at Sur La Table. We found the most awesome cutting board. It’s a John Boos & Co. Maple cutting board for $45.95. Now I also blogged about a pot I got from Sur La Table and we paid $139.99 + tax. Then I was checking my email and I seen that same pot was on sale for $99.99. So my husband called and asked if we could get credit back because we had just bought it about a month ago and they said yes so we got back $43. and some change. Then I went to buy the cutting boards. Woo Hoo I am just so happy 🙂

 

And here they are just so beautiful 🙂

 

There is the brand name. And look how thick it is 🙂 Ooh I just love them!!

 

Now from the first 2 pictures again I have changed all of the shelf’s. This is just to show you what it looked like this morning.

 

Here we go 🙂 The rack is 30 by 18. and the cutting boards are 15 by 21. Here is the first one.

 

And the next one and they fit so perfect nice and snug. And let me tell you I am so so happy with it. It’s just what I wanted. I had to wait awhile but it was so worth it!! 😀

 

Just another look at my beautiful shelf.

 

This what it looks like up close. And I’m just fine with the round corners 🙂

 

There she is!! Oh how I love it 🙂

 

Here it is with the new changes.

 

The lower half. I love the thickness of the cutting boards.

 

The upper half. Wow it looks awesome right?

 

Beautiful 🙂

Thank you so much for reading my blog I hope you enjoyed it 🙂 Have an awesome weekend!!

Some new things for my Kitchen

Standard

Now here is my flat Whisk! I have wanted one since I seen the Pioneer Woman using it.  I’m so sorry not a good picture. I have a better picture coming 🙂 It was $11.95.

I had received an email from Sur La Table they are having a clearance sale and I had to go get some goodies! So I had heard that you are supposed to keep olive oil in a dark place. So I found this beautiful olive oil holder. I was going to get the white one but it was not on sale. The man at the counter said the white and red ones never go on sale 😦 By the way it looks yellow but it is green 🙂 It was $11.99.

Then I bought this beautiful blue baking dish or a dish to serve with. It is 12 x 8. It is dishwasher safe, Microwave safe and oven safe. It is made of stone. And it is very beautiful 🙂

See how beautiful it is? I also love how deep it is. Now maybe when I bake like Mac n Cheese it will not over flow in my oven.  It was $12.99.

Here is the last thing I got. It’s a baking dish 14 x 8.5. It is green it matches the olive oil holder. Again I love that it is deep. Now this one is a little more fragile. You can’t just put hot or cold stuff in it. But  I lived it any ways. It was $14.96.

Just another look from above it see how deep it is 🙂

Here is a better looking picture of the whisk. It seems like it would be much easier to keep clean.

Now you can see the color better on the olive oil holder 🙂

And this is the bag it all come in. It was a fun day my husband came to get me for lunch and we went to Sur La Table.

I hope you enjoyed my blog. Have a great week.

Dutch Oven

Standard

Ok I’m so excited I got my first Dutch Oven Yesterday 🙂 I have been wanting one for so long. My husband and kids know this so the other day Tiffany told my husband that she had seen the pot Mom was looking for in a store that she walked by in down town Walnut Creek. And that the pot she wants is on sale. So after we dropped Brittany off at work yesterday at 7:30am. Tony took me down town Walnut Creek to find this store. And there it was right next door to P F Changs. Sur la table I have to tell you I love this store I have never been there. I will be back.

 

This is the box it came in.

 

Isn’t it just so beautiful? Well I think so 🙂 Now I have never seen this brand before it’s La Cocotte Staub made in France. There were 3 colors this one dark red, blue and gray/black.

 

It’s a 4 Qt pot. And it’s very heavy!

 

This is the inside. The lady at the store said you can wash it with soap. It has some kind of  coating on it.

 

 

They say the little bumps are for when the water evaporates it will fall back on the food all over. Not like when you pick up the lid and all the water gets all over the floor or everywhere but the pot.  So looking forward to using it.

 

Just another picture of the inside. I will let you know the first dish I make in it 🙂 In fact I will blog the dinner that I make with it.

 

Here is showing how deep it is.

 

Oh yes the reason I chose this color is because you can see the detail the words and lines. I did like the blue one but you could not see the words like you can on this one. So I will be keeping my eye out for sales at Sur La Table. I want to get more and I want them all different colors. I’m looking forward to getting some Le Creuset dutch ovens.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I hope you enjoyed it 🙂 Have an awesome day!!!
