ENDS APRIL 20 Gorton’s Seafood Fisherman’s Friday Review and Giveaway 3 WINNERS

Gortons

TGIF! What a long week I’ve had. Thankfully on this dreary (from the rain moving in) Friday in Georgia, I get to serve something delicious and quick from Gorton’s Seafood for supper.

I Love Gorton’s products and we eat seafood twice a week or more at my house. The main reason I serve it so often is because of my back injuries (it helps control arthritis, inflammation and pain) and there are many other health benefits to it including anti-aging perks. I’ve discovered that what you eat can seriously accelerate or slow down the ageing process. I have been trying to incorporate more anti-aging foods in our diet to help slow the anti-aging. Thankfully some of the foods actually help reverse some forms of anti-aging. When I find the right balance for me you will be the first to know. In the meantime, join me by eating seafood twice a week and turning your ordinary Fridays into Gorton’s  Seafood Fisherman’s Fridays.  I love being inventive in the kitchen so having a new Friday meal planning invention to look forward to all week is right up my alley.

We also eat it because it’s so delicious. Even the grand-kids love it and think I’m the best Mimi in the world when I fix them anything that has Gorton’s Seafood in it. I want to be the best Mimi in the world. Of course I want to share that equally with their other Mimi’s.

I’m going to share with you two recipes today that I believe you will love out of some of the products you could select if you are one of the three winners in this giveaway. Get ready to droll my dears.

New-Skin® Share the Outdoors Sweepstakes

Skin Fade

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of New-Skin for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I don’t know about you but with five grand-children we need New-Skin products in our home.  If you are not familiar with what New-Skin products are then let me fill you in a little bit about some of their products.

product-family.png (2 documents, 2 total pages)

New-Skin has Liquid Bandages which are wonderful for so many types of injuries.  They have a brush on applicator which is super easy to use and it keeps out all of those germs we don’t want in our boo boo’s.   Children have a tendency to pick at their cuts and scrapes and can get germs in them if left open.  I’ve seen children get impetigo from scratching at their sores which can very well spread.   Liquid Bandages provide a tough waterproof antiseptic cover to sores.  It’s flexible so it moves when you do.

New-Skin also has a Scar Fade product which does as it’s name suggests.   It reduces those ugly scars we can get from burns, stretch marks,  surgical procedures and acne.   It’s clear which is important if you are using it for acne on your face and it’s odorless so no medicine smells accompany it’s use.   I wouldn’t want to smell like medicine all day, would you?  One of the great things about Scar Fade is that you can see results in as little as 6 weeks on adults and children.

New-Skin has a Poison Ivy Treatment.  Just about everyone in my family is allergic to poison Ivy and we end up with it at some point each year because of our love for hiking.  Those hikes often include woodsy areas and all it takes is for one of us to brush against it.  If you have never had poison Ivy consider yourself lucky because let me tell you it itches.  Poison Ivy Treatment provides complete relief.   COMPLETE.  It stops the itch with an OTC medicated ingredient and provides a non irritating wash.

New Skin has other products which you will want to check out as well.

New-Skin currently has a Share the Outdoors Sweepstakes going on.  You can click on the following link to enter for your chance to win the 4 day adventure of your choice.  I entered for a chance to win.  I really want to go to Botanical Gardens in Atlanta Georgia which is one of the options although all 3 of the awesome options are great.    We are an outdoor family and have been to the Botanical Gardens in Atlanta Georgia several times but we never tire of going.   You can link up the Sweepstakes and have your friends and family visit your sweepstakes page to receive up to 5 votes per day.   The more clicks you get the more likely you are to win!!!

A day in the life of a grandma…

A day in the life of a grandma

A day in the life of a grandma… caring for a 3 year old.
(in response to a question: what do you do all day?)

From 5 am to 6 am. I brew coffee and check my facebook, because sometimes it’s more informative than watching the news, and 99% of the time it’s more hilarious. Coffee involved, Motrin involved, I’m not sitting in jail, no one died last night, hoping for a great day, so far, I’m doing great.

6 am to 7 am. I am trying to get Abby to tell me what she wants for breakfast. Cereal looks like dog food according to her so she refuses to eat it. I usually get the “oh gwama I don’t like eggs” um yes she does? And to address the gwama name, even though she has called me mee mee since she could talk (until a month ago), she has now been calling me gwanpa for a week and has changed her name to Susie, but that’s a whole other story. I chug down coffee before it reaches the bottom of the pot, YES WHILE IT’S STILL BREWING, while Abby AKA Susie decides if she wants eggs, pannycakes, or God forbid, fried chicken for breakfast. My coffee is wearing off. I’m not doing so great. Another pot brewing.

7 am to 8 am. Abby has been fed and is trying to decide what she wants for lunch (already?). I’m trying to clean the kitchen but I’m in desperate need of more coffee, while halfway listening to her ramblings about how starved she is and wondering how long before lunch will be ready, I’m also trying to figure out how the majority of everything I cooked is either on the floor, or in other parts of the house. Coffee is brewing again, my senses are starting to perk back up.

8 am to 9 am. Abby has managed to bring in all of the puppies AND lose them so we are trying desperately to find them before they mistake the carpet for “grass”. Bending, trying to squish 110 pounds (me) and 40 plus pounds (Abby) under the beds that is 150 plus pounds in case anyone didn’t pass basic math, things are starting to turn South. Finally, we round up the puppies and take them out to feed them.

9 am to 10 am. Abby hyper, mee mee aching, Abby hyper, mee mee aching, Abby hyper, mee mee aching. I take Abby outside and let her run to her hearts content. I then end up running 2 miles to catch her to make her come indoors. More Motrin, more coffee.

10 am to 11 am. I’m cleaning, sorta, I clean- she un-cleans, she un-cleans- I clean, I clean- she un-cleans…

11:00 am to 12 pm. Dear Lord. Help me. It’s now time to fix another meal. I start drinking 2 cups of coffee at once. AT ONCE!!! I repeat (because I tend to repeat myself), I start drinking 2 cups of coffee at once. AT ONCE!!!

12 pm to 2 pm. I’m out of my mind.

2 pm to 3 pm. HALLELUJAH thank the good Lord for Curious George (even though from 2:30 to 3:00 I have to explain WHY Abby AKA Susie can’t watch Curious George again). Believe me she could if it would come on. COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE

3 pm to 4 pm. Sitting on the couch, can’t move. Too tired to hold a coffee cup, trying. Too tired to re-pick up, trying. All logic has left me at this point. Coffee, Motrin, coffee coffee coffee. No wonder I can’t sleep at night.

4 pm to 6 pm. Constantly calling the time convinced my clocks have stopped working, ALL OF THEM…. calling, calling, calling….

At some point I realize not only has Abby’s mom gotten off from work and has come to reclaim her “angel” I’ve cooked supper and finished the laundry. And I don’t even have to remember doing it. My blood pressure comes down. I start to relax. I start to remember my name. It’s gwanpa right?

6 pm – midnight. I’m doing much better. :). MUCH!
M U C H ! B E T T E R !

7 pm-ish, somewhere in Georgia… I did not get everything accomplished that I hoped to today. But you know what? It’s not the end of the world.
And Abby got a boo boo which really ruined my day. She hit the corner of a window sill, she cried 30 seconds, I cried 3 hours. She forgot about it and took a nap. I didn’t forget about it and took pictures.
Tonight I’m going to cuddle, read a book, watch the tube, and listen to some music. Tomorrow is another day. And it’s also the day I get to rest and relax.

UPDATE:
Windows sills now have furniture in front of them so Abby can’t bump her little nose again.

I get to sleep in tomorrow, which means I won’t. I only want to sleep in when I can’t…

G’night!
