Soup Saturday and a Hot Tip for Heating Leftovers!

Posted by Jules Happy Rone in Charles Viancin, Potholder, Rainy Day, Soup, SoupSaturday
Honeycomb Potholder by Charles Viancin at Jules Enchanting Gifts

This rainy dreary Saturday is a #SoupSaturday if I ever saw one. So, I thought I'd share a recipe for one of my favorite soups - Cheesy Potato - and also a hot tip for heating leftovers!  Hop on over to facebook so you can save this to your timeline or tag a friend!

The tip first - one of my customers turned me on to this and I think it's absolutely brilliant. We all know how fantastic the Charles Viancin Silicone Lids are for reheating things in the microwave. (And on the stove, and in the oven, and ...) What you probably didn't know is that if you put one of their Honeycomb Potholders (only $5.95) in the microwave under whatever you're heating up, it makes it super easy to transfer your hot container out of the microwave without burning yourself. (Hard to photograph, I needed another hand, but you get the idea!) Then you can also use it as a trivet on the table! Pretty sweet, right?

Now to the recipe. I have started calling this the Save Me Some Soup, as that's what my friends and relatives say to me when I mention making it. Honestly after the first time or two I kind of use the recipe as a suggestion, as I make a huge batch with a big bag of potatoes (red if I remember to get them, otherwise whatever I have in the house), a couple big onions, and then just pour the liquids until it looks about right. I haven't yet remembered to have scallions in the house when I make it, they're probably good on top. lol

Cheesy Potato Soup - via Cooking Light

I like to add: cooked chopped broccoli, salt, black pepper, garlic powder and dried parsley to taste.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon butter
1 cup chopped onion
2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups chopped red potato (about 1 pound)
1 1/4 cups 1% low-fat milk
3/4 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 tablespoons chopped green onions

Preparation:
1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Sprinkle with flour; cook 1 minute, stirring onion mixture constantly. Add potato, milk, broth, and 1/2 cup water to pan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Add 1/2 cup reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese and ground red pepper; cook 2 minutes or until cheese melts, stirring frequently. Top each serving evenly with 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped green onions.

Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: 1 cup)
Total time: 30 Minutes

Harmony Kingdom News!

Posted by Jules Happy Rone in Harmony Kingdom, Harmony Kingdom News, Santa


Nick's Nightmare Harmony KingdomIt's always exciting to get a new shipment of Harmony Kingdom.  Sure, the pictures are wonderful, but they don't truly do justice to these mini works of art.  I have so much fun looking at all the detail, then making sure to try and get all the details in every picture.  The 2015 Santa - Nick's Nightmare - arrived last week (I spent the week sick as a dog, so it's taken me a bit to post about it) and it's just as fantastic as every year.  I just have one question, as Indy and I have the same phobia:  Snakes.  Why did it have to be Snakes?

If you're a fan of Harmony Kingdom, you should definitely watch this page, too, as I was just able to place an order of Harmony Kingdom "archive" pieces.  Let's put it this way: I've been selling HK for 18 years, and there are a few pieces that I'm about to see for the first time.  Intrigued?  Me too!  Excited?  ME TOO!  Stay tuned ...  :)

New Wallets and Sleeves have just Arrived!

Posted by Jules Happy Rone in Aluminum Wallets, Pretty Wallets, RFID Security

When the makers of Pretty Tools - Fig Design - came out with these Aluminum Armor wallets a few years back, I was very impressed.  My customers were even more pleased!  One of the fastest selling lines I've carried in almost 18 years of business, these wallets still fly out the door every day.  They protect you against RFID theft (which is when a thief can steal all of the information out of your wallet without ever touching you, just by holding an electronic gizmo near you - obviously a very serious issue) and they're handy and fun, too!  I hear regularly "well I have one, but it's just a boring silver!"  They're not boring now!  With images ranging from Monet and Van Gogh, to Floral, Plaid, Butterflies, Camo, Damask, Leather Look, Paisley and more, the newest designs are Pansies, Rose, Iris and Sunflowers.  Or, if you really love your wallet and don't care for the Aluminum look, but of course want the protection, sleeves are a great option.  The two newest sets of designs are Birds & Floral and they're beautiful!

First Post

Posted by Jules Happy Rone in New Website

Once upon a time ... there was a very tired (though beautiful and smart ... and modest) shopkeeper who had been slaving away for months to create a brand new web site for all of her subjects ... er, wonderful fantastic customers.  ;)  She climbed the highest mountains in the land, swam the widest oceans and battled dragons ... or at least that's what it felt like by the time she was done.  She was so excited to unveil the new site she decided to celebrate by sleeping for a week.  (She's currently hiring a staff of seven to tend her while she's sleeping, so if you know of anyone, send them her way.)  Meanwhile, please explore the new web site, enjoy the new functionality, place an order or two, and please let her know if there are any issues or questions ... complaints will be handled by the dragons.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and enjoy! 

:)
