Summer grilling with Bertolli Olive Oil and creations form Chef Fabio Viviani

At the end of the afternoon when dinner time rolls around I'm thinking grill and patio. This time of year is enjoyable outside for dinner on the patio, and then stay outside to enjoy the last of the Summer nights until bedtime or the mosquitoes come out.

On Sunday night we made Kabobs on the grill. The chicken was marinated in a chipotle style dressing and the vegetables got a marinade of Bertolli® Olive Oil and a handful of spices. The vegetables on the Kabobs were fresh out of the garden tomatoes, onions, and organic mushrooms and pineapple from the grocery store.


Bertolli® Classico Olive Oil has a mild flavor, and is perfect for grilling. You can also use Bertolli® Classcio Olive oil for roasting, and sauces. As the weather turns a bit cooler I'll be turning the oven on more and cooking  roasts for chilly nights.

Bertolli® Olive Oil is improted from Italy and contains select high quality olives oils.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products.

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook.

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
