Cindy's Table and The Connecticut Small Business Networking Group are excited to announce the Shop for your Sweetheart Vendor Fair. The vendor fair will take place on Wednesday February 4 from 4-7 pm at The Manchester Country Club. The event will include a wonderful variety of vendors (listed below), a silent auction, and horderves and drinks. 100% of the proceeds from the vendor tables and silent auction will be donated to Foodshare, a non-profit food bank which helps people by supplying food to local service bodies and through programs that build self-sufficiency and reduce the need for food. Foodshare will have a table and be accepting canned good donations at the event. For more information about the organization, visit www.foodshare.org. Please consider bringing canned goods and meet the foodshare team!
One product that makes cooking a lot more convenient is my Emile Henry Salt Pig. The Salt Pig is a ceramic dish with a unique shape to it. It has a large opening so that any size hand can easily grab a pinch of salt or pepper. This is convenient when I’m cooking, because I don’t have to shake salt out of a shaker, I can just stick my fingers in and grab it.
I recently started using the Ninja Blender. The really cool thing about this blender is the six blade design, rather than the usual single blade. This design is unlike any blender that I’ve ever used, and it works great for all types of recipes. In just a few minutes, it blends fruits and vegetables smoothly. Unlike other blenders, it doesn’t leave them chunky.
Another great feature is the pitcher. You blend right in the pitcher, which makes it great for making drinks. I have been using for my smoothies and other blended drinks at parties and for outdoor entertaining in the summer. It also blends ice into a snow like texture with no big ice chunks, perfect for slush drinks for the kids.
