Meat thermometers are nothing new. They’re certainly a handy kitchen helper to easily check internal temperatures of meat. That way you can be assured it’s reached a safe cooking temperature without overcooking it and making it dry or tough.
But could I find a fully wireless meat thermometer? One that could communicate through Bluetooth? A thermometer that would send data directly to my smart phone?
Oh yes I did! And you’re not gonna believe how easy it makes cooking meat to perfection, y’all!
Many sinks come with a little pump soap dispenser on the top edge. Whether you fill it with dish soap for washing dishes or hand soap for washing hands, it’s quite a handy little amendment for your kitchen sink.
But most of those little soap dispenser pumps use a small screw-in bottle underneath the sink to hold the liquid soap.
That tiny receptacle always runs low at the most inopportune times, don’t they? And then they have to be refilled pretty frequently. So we got to wondering, is there a better way?
RancherMan & I had a porch extension built last year. But wait. WHAT’S THIS??? Even though we took precautions to keep the Bermuda grass out, it tried to march into our beautiful raised beds anyway!
As anyone who’s battled (and LOST) the war with Bermuda grass in their flower beds knows, it’s almost impossible to eliminate. The underground rhizosomes break easily, leaving the next generation of Bermuda-grass-misery ready to thwart your best efforts.
I need a surefire way to eliminate mosquitoes. You really do have to be careful and protect yourselves against their nasty bites. I’ve tried all the sure-fire remedies but none worked. But I did find one thing that worked beautifully. Come see.
RancherMan & I work our homestead every day, so much of our daily activity involves being outside. Sun protection is important but we both hate the feel of sunblock. Plus I don’t like the thought of slathering chemicals on my skin every day anyway.
So we’re careful to protect our skin by covering it instead – wide-brim hats (helllooooo cowboy!)and long-sleeved lightweight shirts are often worn while mowing the yard or doing hours of tractor work.
But c’mon – although it helps, that’s not much actual sun protection. I need to find clothing that protects us while keeping us comfortable.
I’m 55 years old, y’all. Old enough for my eyes to require reader glasses. But I can’t wear glasses all the time because otherwise the ole eyes still see pretty well. That means I’m always searching for my readers when I need to see finer detail.
This creates more problem in the kitchen than anywhere else. I’m constantly fetching my readers to measure when I’m cooking. What a pain!
I really loved the look of the new larger-print Pyrex measuring cup so I reached out to Pyrex and asked them if they’d send me one to review. Glory be, they said yes!
