Rabbit Salt Grinder: Ward off Evil On-the-Go!

A lot of the conversations and stories I recall from my time in Italy include the subject of superstition. What I learned: Basically, if you spill some salt – - Toss some more salt over your left shoulder, because you may have exposed yourself to bad omens.

Some Buddhists say you should toss some over your should when you come back home from a funeral, because evil spirits might be hanging on your back. Sumo Wrestlers use it to purify the ring before they compete – a shinto religion practice. In India, a gift of salt can be considered a great honor. The list goes on…. ‘Like to salt your food, have good luck, AND ward off evil spirits? These cute little rabbit-like...

Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter Fudge, Peanut Butter Cookie, Peanut Butter & Banana, Peanut Butter & Jelly…. and PEANUT BUTTER WITH BACON! I am a sucker for interesting flavors, and I already have tried many chocolate desserts that include bacon.  I decided to try it.

Whiskey Sour Popsicles

Whiskey Sour Popsicles

It’s “popsicle time” again, folks! It’s warming up out there, and everywhere I look there is a different popsicle recipe….so I am at it again.  However, it should have taken me a few moments to blog this recipe up for you, …….but I made the time consuming mistake of checking my spelling of “popsicle.” Much to my surprise…..

It’s actually quite hilarious.  If you are looking for an answer to getting rid of fruit flies – - – the first thing you do is put up all food AND put away unrefrigerated food that might be going bad (bananas, avocados, tomatoes….)  That usually fixes it in a couple of days.

You can try them.  I did & I killed a bunch of bugs. Check out the pics & results below!   Three Options I have tried: 1.
