Sometimes you need help from friends to get things done that you just can’t do on your own, especially if you’ve just had surgery. On Friday we had some friends over for dinner for two purposes, one to enjoy their company, and two to have them help us take Christmas lights off the house. If you’ve been following along, you know that my husband just had spinal surgery and can’t do things like climb on rooftops right now. At the beginning of January, we had a huge six-day snowstorm that came through and it was too icy to climb up on the roof to take the Christmas lights down. I tell you in parts of Flagstaff, snow is still on the ground from that record-breaking snow storm! Anyway, when you need something done and you have good friends around, it’s always nice to bribe them for help by preparing a nice dinner for them.
So in an effort to not be “those neighbors” that leave their lights up til the end of Spring, we invited them over for dinner in exchange for a little labor. 😉 I made my perogie dish from last week. Rachel thought it was nice. We had a wonderful spring salad with apple slices, a raspberry Merlot vinaigrette dressing and some wine she brought over. Dinner was awesome and the company was great.
To help make the ingredients in the salad, I used the Vidalia Chop Wizard, which was given to me to review. It was so easy to use and most of all, it cut the time I needed to prepare the salad in half. After using it and seeing how it cut up the apples, I know I can now make my summer salsa in half the time.
Now I have good chopping knives, some of the best on the market, but being able to reduce the time chopping by having the chop wizard do most of the work, is awesome! Since I’ve gotten this product, we’ve used a lot more veggies in our cooking. I chopped up celery and carrots for chicken noodle soup when my son was sick, we’ve made apple and celery tuna fish sandwiches for lunch and I can’t wait to make a really nice fruit salad the kids can take to school this week!
The Vidalia chop wizard chopped the celery and apple slices in the perfect size chunks that I could easily add to the tuna. This is the way I love making tuna fish sandwiches.
I totally recommend the Vidalia chop wizard especially if you love making salsas and finely chopped veggies in your food.
Also, it comes with this little pick to help get food that can get stuck in the blades or lid of the chop wizard.
