Earth Day Slow Food style- with Yummy Pea Pesto!

Because I always love hearing how much people love Lifetime Products, I just HAD to contact the great woman mentioned in my last post, and hear more about our tables! :)

Heather (shown above working at an Earth Day event with her little boy-- a shy guy in this photo!) is with Slow Food Utah and is powering a "Good, Clean, Fair food movement", a global organization with grassroots efforts to link people with information about the food in their community and the environment. One of Slow Food's lesser known initiatives is the "Slow Food in Schools", a garden-to-table program that helps children develop an appreciation for real, wholesome food and an understanding of sustainable food practices. 

Heather told me more about her Lifetime 6 foot fold-in-half  table and how she uses it:

 "I love your tables. I bought it to use as an extra table for work events, but I seem to use it for everything now - impromptu dinner guests, craft projects, loaning it out to friends etc. The folding feature sold me on the product along with the handles that make it that much easier to carry with kids."

The Slow Food Utah website mentions that one of their objectives is to "awaken" people to the enjoyment and health benefits of quality food.  Her booth certainly did the trick for me when I tried their Pea Pesto!! WOW! See the recipe for this delicious dip below:

Pea Pesto

Shown here with cherry tomatoes. (Great as a bruschetta topping or this amount is perfect to toss with a pound of cooked pasta, topped with diced tomatoes.)

1 (10-ounce) package frozen peas
2 large garlic cloves
1/2 cup pine nuts (2 ounce)- or other nuts. (Heather mentioned you can also use almonds)
1/2 cup Parmesan plus additional for serving
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Cook peas on the stove or in a microwave according to package directions, then drain well.
With food processor running, drop in garlic and finely chop. Turn off motor and add peas, nuts, cheese, salt, and pepper then process until finely chopped. With motor running, add oil, blending until incorporated.

Enjoy!

Tetherball Comes Around Again - In a New Portable Version
My son is in kindergarten this year and I love hearing what fun things he does in school each day since its all so new to him. Last week he came home and couldnt wait to tell me about gym class - they had played tetherball! Wow, does that bring back some memories. Apparently, Im not the only one that remembers standing in line during school recess waiting for my turn to take the big swing. A few weeks ago, one of the popular Twitter topics was #whenwewereyoung. (BTW, you can follow us on Twitter @Lifetime 365!) I was surprised to read how many people tweeted about tetherball memories! Some fond, some not so fond...guess it depends on if they were hit by the ball!?! Well, good news! Tetherball is no longer limited to school playgrounds! Lifetime has made a new portable tetherball you can have in your own backyard or drivew...
First 10 Customers Get 40% Off The New Lifetime Netball System!
Be one of the first 10 customers to purchase the new Lifetime Netball system on buylifetime.com and get 40% off the regular price! (One system per customer.) Lifetime Products has added the unique game of Netball to its line up of basketball hoops so don't miss this introductory special. The Netball system is not like any other basketball hoop. It is designed with a portable 10 gallon base, a telescoping pole that adjusts from 7.5 to 10 ft, and a 15" rim, but unlike other basketball goals, it does not have a backboard. That makes it much more challenging to get the ball in the net! The game of Netball was derived from early versions of basketball. Some of the differences between the rules of basketball and netball are: BBALL: 2 teams of 5 vs 5 NETBALL: 2 teams of 7 vs 7 BBALL: Players are free to go where they want on the ...
Relax This Summer!
So the first few weeks of Spring are fun to work in the yardthen, reality hits, and I remember how yard work can be a lot of hard work! One of my favorite products we sell is our Adirondack chair. This chair is perfect for chillin after pulling weeds and planting flowers. Made from Polystyrene a big word for a type of plastic that is made to look and feel like wood this chair is great looking! It is low to the ground and has a slight recline so its nice and comfortable. The wood-like material is stain resistant, and holds up well in the sun. It looks like wooden furniture, but you wont have to stain it every year. You can find our Adirondack chairs at your local Costco. A word of cautionwhen you tell your spouse youll be out weeding, dont let her find you sleeping in your Adirondack chairbeen there, done that, and the ou...
