Aerobie® Skylighter™ Lighted Disc

  Aerobie sent us one of these super fun Aerobie® Skylighter™ Lighted Discs for review. Hubby and I had a blast playing with the disc under the stars. The led lights are quite bright and look really cool flying across the yard. I think the Aerobie® Skylighter™ Lighted Disc is great, especially when the kids aren't quite ready to come inside in the early evening.
 The disc is light enough to be used by anyone, and still heavy enough to fly smoothly. We had no trouble sending this baby across the yard. It's easy to throw and easy to catch. Flys really far too. This is a toy the whole family can enjoy. Yes even the teenagers will play.

Aerobie® Skylighter™ lighted flying disc
Extend the fun of playing with an Aerobie flying disc into the night with the new Skylighter lighted disc. Its bright LEDs illuminate the clear center and the translucent colored rim to make the entire Skylighter appear bright in the night sky. With the patented Aerobie spoiler rim design, the Skylighter is easy for players of all skill levels to throw well. Its narrow profile and large 12 inch (30cm) diameter make the Skylighter fly far and straight.
As is the case with all Aerobie discs, the Skylighter has a rubber rim that provides a performance grip for strong throws and a soft edge to catch. Weight: 175 grams. Available in yellow, red, blue, and green. Ages 10 and up. Takes 2 lithium CR2032 3 volt batteries. Quality made in the U.S.A.
  • Spectacular flights, day or night
  • Powerful LEDs light the entire transluscent disc
  • Amazing long and accurate flights
  • Large 12 inch diameter for unequaled stability
  • Cushioned rim for performance grip and soft catches
  • Long life, replaceable batteries

Sonic Alert AM/FM Alarm Clock (SBR350ss)

 Have a teenager that is hard to get out of bed.? Or perhaps an elderly or hearing impaired relative that needs a little more than your average alarm clock to wake up?  Sonic Alert has your answer. Sonic Alert sells Everyday hearing products for everyday people. Sonic Alert has been supplying amplified alarm clocks, telephones, signalers, and personal listening devices for over 39 years.
 We were sent the Alarm Clock and AM / FM Radio with Super Shaker™ - SBR350ss for review. I personally wanted this model to wake our teenager up on time. There is no way anyone can ignore this alarm clock when set on high with all the functions on. This baby is awesome. Not only can you turn the volume control up to the maximum 113 db, but the lighted display flashes while the alarm is going off. If that isn't enough to get your little angel up wait til they feel the bed shaker. You read that right, this clock has a SS12VW Super Shaker™ bed vibrating unit included.

 I personally wanted to hook up the clock to our daughter's bed without her knowing. (Hubby said that was mean. I knew he was right but I just can't help thinking it might be just a little funny.) Anyhow we tested it out on our bed. I like that you can adjust the brightness of the clock display. You can set the alarm to tone or your favorite radio station. The shaking is enough to wake you but not scare the pants off of you from a deep sleep. (Yes, I know it would have been mean to hook it up without her knowing)

Description from Sonic Alert:

Add a little music to your life. The SBR350ss features a large, easy to read (1.8”) display and bed vibrating unit, with the added feature of an AM / FM radio so you can wake to your favorite program.
Sleep well knowing you’ll wake up on time.


· 113 db extra-loud alarm

· SS12VW Super Shaker™ bed vibrating unit

· Complete with AM/FM radio

· Hi / low dimmer switch

· Extra-large 1.8” display

· 9V battery backup, maintains time and alarm setting in the event of power failure (battery not included)

· One-year Sonic Alert blast-proof warranty

Now the whole family can play a fast paced game with a Deluxe Find It Game containing over 70 hidden items.

At the beginning of each turn spin the timer to determine the action required prior to play (add points, miss a turn, trade hands etc.) Look fast! You will have 30 seconds to try to find a many items as possible. Play continues until someone finds all of their items and runs out of cards. Find It Deluxe Edition is the perfect party or family game. For two or more players, age 8 through adult.
A creative game that never needs to be put away. Find It is ideal to play anywhere: at home, in the office, in your car.

Marx Foods Dried Chiles Take Two

Y'all know I love spice. Not to hot, but just enough to give your food some serious flavor. I played around with three more Dried Chiles from Marx Foods.
First up we tried out the:
Cascabel Chilies

Cascabel chilies (aka rattle chilies, little bell chilies) are mild chilies that are round and have several loose seeds that rattle loudly when the chilies are shaken.
Hubby and I got in the kitchen and played with three of em over the weekend.

For these beauties we found a recipe from Bobby Flay for Grilled Lamb Porterhouse with Fig-Cascabel Sauce (If y'all want that recipe it's on Sorry I can't include it here for copyright reasons. The Cascabel Chiles from Marx Foods add a slight heat to the fig sauce. Absolutely delicious.

Next We had some fun with some serious heat.
Habanero Chiles

Habanero Chiles (Capsicum Annuum) are very hot chiles. Behind the heat is a fruity flavor that makes these chiles a wonderful way to spark up a dish. Habanero chilies are round, oblong and about ¾ inch wide. Consider the habanero to be a 10 on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the hottest).  The only hotter chile we offer is the famous ghost chili. 
 This one is my recipe so I can share with y'all

Habaenero Rosemary mixed Nuts 

3 TBS butter
1 dried Habanero
2 TBS Rosemary
1 tsp Coarse Sea Salt
1/2 tsp table salt
1 tsp granulated sugar
3 cups total (raw peanuts and pecan halves mixed)
Extra salt and sugar if wanted sprinkled on after roasting

First you will need to use your spice grinder on one dried habanero chile from Marx Foods and 2 TBS of dried rosemary. Melt butter in saucepan. Mix in spices. Pour over nuts and stir to coat evenly. Pour all onto foil lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 11 minutes or until desired roastiness. When removed you may sprinkle with additional salt and sugar while still warm.

Next up are the
Mulato Peppers
 Mulato peppers are dried versions of the popular poblano pepper. However, though they come from the same pepper as ancho chilies, mulato chilies tend to be sweeter, softer, and darker in color. Mulato peppers are often used to replace ancho peppers in the trinity of chilies (with pasilla negro chilies and gaujillo chilies) used to make traditional mole. Mulato peppers possess mild heat with an earthy fruitiness.

 For these chiles we tested out one of Marx Foods recipes Homemade Barbecue Sauce Recipe
We were supposed to use a Serrano chile but I did not have one and opted for the Mulato. This recipe turned out absolutely awesome. I have been thrilled with every recipe I have tried from the Marx Foods website. Y'all have really got to check out their site.

Marx Foods sent us some Dried Mushrooms that we are going to try out next. Check back to see what recipes we come up with for those lovelies.
