WaltLife Monthly Subscription

Oh my friends – have I got something to share with you.  Everyone knows what a huge Disney fan my mom is, right?  Well I found something that would absolutely tickle my mom’s fancy.  WaltLife.  You are probably asking yourself what this WaltLife is all about.  Well, let me tell you.  You can sign yourself or a loved one up to receive a monthly box from WaltLife.  It works kind of like Bark Box for Houdini or KitNipBox for Hemi.  Don’t worry about this piggy.  I also have a monthly subscription.  It’s called Nana – snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.

But back to WaltLife.  You can get monthly subscriptions where a different box is sent every month.  There are three tiers with this that range $20 to $48.  There are also boxes that you can get for a one time delivery.  It’s pretty cool just to check them out for sure.

Well you know me.  I saw this WaltLife and just knew my mom would absolutely love to get a box.  But here was the problem.  I couldn’t get dad’s credit card… you know since the last fiasco where I so called ‘borrowed’ his credit card and made some purchases.  Shaking my piggy head.  Hey I needed those items for my room daddy.  I really did.  And plus mom was fixing to have surgery.  I know she would love to have something to brighten her day.  So I did what any other pigson would do.  I sent the company an email explaining my situation.  And guess what happened?  They sent mom a free box to see what she thought.

 

The box came in the mail all wrapped up ‘special delivery’ from WaltLife.  Needless to say when mom got her special delivery, she was over the moon!  She hurriedly opened it up and found Finding Nemo – Dory, Hank, Elsa from Frozen.  There was a fan, Uno cards, a brush, a cute little bag, a drink cup – it was fun all wrapped up in a cute little treasure box.

Of course mom was over the moon and quickly gave me piggy kisses to thank me.  She was so excited about her box.  Now we were given this box in exchange for a review.  What did mom think honestly?  She loved the idea of getting a monthly box from WaltLife.  She loved her items.  If she had to change anything, it would be nice pick your top three Disney characters and let one of them be what you get every month instead of the random character box.  That is the only negative thing mom would say.

Shopping Around the World

Welcome my friends for another great edition of Shopping Around the World.

This month we have a suggestion from my cousin Sammy on highlighting soups for January.  Now is the time to start making some wonderful hot soups for dinners that make us feel all cozy and warm.  Is there a special soup that you fix?  A soup that your finally raves about and requests?  It does not have to be five items or less this month.  Share your recipe and picture of your soup!

Mom’s soup of choice is her Spicy Cabbage Soup.  Doesn’t that sound good just reading it?  You can make it as spicy or not as you like.  And what’s better than that?  It’s simple!

2 cans of mixed vegetables, $2.38

1 can of roasted tomatoes, $1.12

1 package of sirloin, about a pound.  On this date it was cheaper to buy it as a small piece of sirloin instead of it already being cubed.  It was $6.50 for the pound – which was plenty because dad likes a lot of meat in his soups/stews.

1 head of cabbage, $0.99 for the head.

2 boxes of beef broth, $4.98

Seasoning in the form of pepper, flour, salt and pepper flakes.

Directions:  Plug in your crock pot and put on low in the early morning before leaving for work.  Pour in the two boxes of beef broth.  We get the low sodium kind.  Chop up the entire head of cabbage and put in the crock pot. Stir the cabbage in to make sure the broth is covering it.  In the meantime, cut up your sirloin into small cubes.  You can buy the sirloin that is already cut up – whatever you prefer.  This date it was cheaper to buy it whole.  Salt, pepper and toss the beef in a light powdering of flour.  Put a little bit of olive oil in a pan over the oven and lightly color the beef to brown it.  This step of coating the sirloin in flour and coloring it helps to ‘thicken’ your soup a bit and is optional.  When this is done, put the beef in the crock pot.  Remember to scrape the bottom of your pan with all of the bits and pieces of yummy.

Then add in your canned vegetables, roasted tomatoes, black pepper to taste and pepper flakes to taste.  Remember, pepper flakes are spicy.  Less is best if you are not sure what kind of spice you want.  You can always add more in when you serve the individual bowls.  Mom likes to serve it with cornbread or a crusty type bread for dipping.  Goes great on cold rainy days or cold winter nights.

Yorkie-O-Poly

 My friends – I need your help.  The little guy here – Houdini – has a birthday coming up.  I saw this game – what do you think?  Too much?  Not enough?  Ideas for the pooch?
