Got Smelly containers?

Do you have any plastic containers that still smell of the last thing they were used to store?? I used to have a couple & no amount of soaking or scrubbing would get rid of the smell. I actually had 2 containers that I no longer used due to the smell but didnt throw out due to the price!!

Well I dont have the problem any more, & I will share with you why. Now when I was first told of the solution I thought “yeah right ” but decided to try it any way & guess what……..it actually worked!!!

OK so what did I do?? I filled the container with water & stuck it in the freezer until frozen solid ( read until I remembered I had stuck it in the back freezer <blush>) Then I tied the large iceblock out onto the lawn so it wouldnt waste all the water & washed my container. NO SMELL!!!!!!! Honest the smell was gone completely.

So drag out your smelly containers & give it a go, let me know how you went!!!

Chicken Noodle Thingy :)

Dont you just love the flash name of this recipe? My kids named it after asking what it was called & my response of, Hmm dunno I jut made it up as I went. LOL This is a great one to make when you are running short on time, inspiration or both.


1 BBQ Chicken, broken up & chopped into bite size pieces

Whatever vegies you like personally I use potatoes, peeled & cubed, carrots peeled & diced, broccolli, cauliflower & peas.

1 family size packet pasta & sauce Alfredo


Cook pasta as packet directions, cook vegies until tender, I usually microwave for about 20mins. Put into a large bowl with the pasta & the chopped up chicken. Gently combine all ingredients & serve.

*Not Freezable, can reheat the next day *

Let me know what you think when you try it )

Doing the dishes in style

ok it is a mundane job & I more often than not let mine drip dry anyway unless I want to annoy the kids, that drive me insane, by insisting they do the drying. Mind you that leads to more insanity as I hear “hurry up”, “I did more than you”,” I had that one first……………..MUM……………” Sheesh no wonder I detest not having a dish washer these days!

Anyway just because they do a boring job doesn’t mean your tea towels have to be boring. I offer great fun tea towels in funky colours to jazz up your kitchen. Choose from Pink, Blue, Yellow or Green with embroidery of your choice. Happy to personalise towels with any name………..(put kids or hubby’s on there then they own the towel & have to use it) hehe.
