Labor Day Picnic Recipe

Friday, August 29th, 2008

So BabySteals.com fans, who’s ready to share their favorite Labor Day picnic recipe?

Here’s is my favorite salad recipe, perfect for a picnic.

Yummy Yummy Orzo Chicken Salad

* 1 cup orzo
* 1/2 t ground cumin
* 1 1/2 t chopped fresh parsley leaves
* 2 T chopped walnuts
* 8 oz smoked boneless chicken breast, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
* 4 c red grapes, halved
* 1/4 c pink grapefruit juice
* 1 T fresh lemon juice
* 1/4 c fresh lime juice
* 1/2 c packed fresh basil leaves, cut into thin strips
* 1/2 t curry powder

Cook orzo according to package directions. Stir in cumin and parsley and salt to taste. Let cool to room temperature.

To toast walnuts, heat a dry pan over medium heat. Add walnuts and shake or stir 6 or 7 minutes, until lightly browned.

In a bowl, toss chicken, grapes, juices, basil, and curry and salt and pepper to taste.

Add orzo and chill! When ready to serve sprinkle salad with walnuts.

You’re welcome! Leave your favorite picnic recipe in the comments.


More Outside Baby Cooler Backpacks!

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

You moms have some seriously quick fingers! We figured we’d have plenty of Outside Baby Cooler Backpacks to last the whole day. And within 30 minutes, they were gone. Poof! Every one. I felt so bad for the barrage of moms that quickly emailed us afterward, “No fair! Get more!” We normally don’t do this kind of thing, once it’s gone it’s gone. And as you know we ship your stuff the same day and you often get it within two! But luckily today, they had more and you want them! So hurry. They are already going fast! If you ordered by 9:30amMST, you’ll have your bag by Friday. All remaining orders today you’ll have no later than next Wednesday!

…and while I was busy trying to get you all hooked up with more, I was amazed at how quiet and cooperative my sweet toddler girl was being. Well moms, silence is dangerous. Within just a few minutes, she painted herself pretty with my makeup.
Oh well, Clinique’s Blush Violet was a little bright for me anyway. Looks great on her dark skin, don’t ‘ya think?

Any ideas on how to get lipstick out of carpet?


Advice Needed

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

We started potty training Bubby on Saturday. Since he was so good about giving up his binky i thought this would go well. Silly me.

Does anyone have potty training advice?  How did you do it?
The most frustrating part is not knowing how to react to his accidents. Anger? Reprimand? Encouragement? Clearly i need to do more research.
He doesn’t hate the idea, loves to sit on the potty. Loves his new underpants, but just can’t catch himself when he needs to go, and sees no problem doing his business inside his underpants.
I asked his dad to find a good potty training video on youtube, he found this. oddly enough Bubby can’t get enough of it, he’s watched it eight times this morning. When I asked him if he wanted to go potty like the tiger he says “YES!”.


Go Baby Inmat Giveaway

Baby needs tummy time, but how do you protect baby from the dirty floor? Go Baby InMat!

The InMat is crafted with a washable suede and soft fleece creating the ideal mat for baby yoga, massage and tummy-time. It rolls up tight with a magnetic closure making it easy to toss into mom’s diaper or gym bag. And, unlike the old standby baby blanket, it doesn’t slip, slide or twist with every move the baby makes! Even if the baby decides to get in on the exercise action, the mat stays smooth and flat, despite their newly-found rolling or crawling skills!

Surface area is 23×24. Fleece – 100% poly. Suede – 100% leather
