Summer Salsa Made Easy

pico de gallo

Pico de Gallo/4our2cents

A highlight of summer is the abundance of fresh fruit and veggies. My favorite summer menu item is fresh salsa. Above is Pico de Gallo. Fresh cut tomatoes, onions, cilantro, lime juice, garlic salt (or fresh garlic if you like), and salt/pepper to taste. Yum!

In the past I’ve stuck it all in a blender and while it wasn’t exactly beautiful (or blog post worthy!), it was delicious. Now I’ve found the secret to beautiful salsa. It’s Freshware KT-402 3-in-1 Onion Chopper, Vegetable Slicer, Fruit and Cheese Cutter (Dark Green).

This thing is amazing! It is very simple to use, cuts items perfectly and comes apart for easy cleaning. Right now it’s listed for $18.72 but there’s a $3 coupon to clip which makes it $15.72! Grab it now while the coupon is available, Amazon prices change at a moment’s notice.

Can’t wait to hear about your fresh summer salsa! And! This item works for veggies, fruit, and cheese! Love!

Spring Cleaning? Save Now!

Norwex_House_Logo_Tag_012315

Time for Spring Cleaning. Are you ready? 3 years ago I started Norwexing and it has changed everything at my house. Have you heard of it? I bought a few Norwex “rags” and have purchased very few cleaning products (besides Norwex) ever since. There is very little that a Norwex rag won’t do. Kid hand prints on the walls? The Norwex rag scrubs them right off. Got granite, Soapstone, quartz or laminate countertops in the kitchen or bathrooms? The Norwex rags cleans those right up and soaks up the germs along the way! These rags are antibacterial and will kill the germs as you clean. I have had my rags for over 3 years and they are still going strong!

mit and basicThis is the Basic Package with the mitt (called the Household Package). It’s my favorite if you are ready to take the Norwex plunge. This package contains the antibacterial cloth (green), the shining cloth (purple) and the mitt. The green cloth is textured and will work wonders on walls, bath tubs, counter tops and floors. I also use it on glass and stainless steel. After cleaning, I use the purple cloth to shine my stainless and glass. I’m often asked how I get my stainless appliances (which are now 7 years old) so shiny! Well, I use Norwex, of course. No chemicals needed. These two rags clean mirrors fabulously as well! The mitt is a gem. I use it on blinds. Want to be efficient with your time? Buy 2 mitts and clean in half the time! My kids love these mitts and I trick them into dusting just so they can use the mitt! Help around the house, love that! I like to use the mitts on my wooden steps as well. The mitt attracts the dust quickly and easily!

Laundry PackFinally, I recommend the laundry pack. This environmentally friendly combination will save you loads in the laundry room as well as keep your Norwex rags clean.

Need other recommendations for Norwex products? Just email me at 4 our 2 cents @4our2cents dot com and I’ll be happy to point you in the right direction. I’ve never posted on Norwex or other products like this before. After 3 years of Norwex use, I’ve determined it’s time to spread the word! Love Norwex! Would love to hear what you think!
