Tonguespank Spice - Do You Like It Hot?

When I first heard of Tonguespank spices, I thought it was just another spice that you used when cooking. WRONG! Tonguespank spices are condiments that are used much like salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and hot sauce. I think you get the picture. In their literature, it states that one of their best comparisons would be "dry hot sauces". And this is what peaked my interest in trying their product.  

Hubby puts hot sauce on everything. So I thought this might be a nice alternative for us. We tried the Smoky Bourbon Table Blend and the Garlic Grappa Table Blend from the Liquor & Heat Collection (based on liquor-infused hot peppers). 

My first impression was wow the Smoky Bourbon smells hot, and the Garlic Grappa had a less intense pepper smell, very pleasant, but I could still smell a little of the 'heat'. 

I stir fried some chicken, and we gave it a go. Hubby went right in and sprinkled the Smoky Bourbon on his chicken. I was a little more reserved and tried on it on a small piece. It definitely had a 'bite' to it, but I liked it. It was a little hot for me. Hubby on the other hand thought it tasted 'pretty good'. And if you get a 'pretty good' out of my husband when it comes to food, then that's pretty much a two thumbs up. 

Next I tried the Garlic Grappa, and that was more to my liking. Upon first bite I thought, this is good and would be really good on eggs. Hubby also liked the Garlic Grappa. 

This morning I tested my theory with both spices on some egg whites. Both were really a nice addition to my eggs. And I will definitely be using these spices with future dishes, especially now that I'm trying to eat a little more clean (which means less sauces), and I'm finding that spices are a nice addition to dressing up my food.

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss


You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But
