Home and Summer Ideas

This post is brought to you by your friends at ShopWiki Kitchen Appliances.

Summer time is a great time to enjoy a home made treat from your blender such as a smoothie or a non-alcoholic (or rum included) strawberry daiquiri. I have shopped for kitchen blenders before and ended up buying the cheapest one I could find at a local store. This blender has worked wonders for me on a hot Summer evening when I’m in the mood for a non-alcoholic pina colada or strawberry daiquiri.

Another product I have at home that helps me cook a good wholesome meal without heating up my house is a slow cooker. You can toss veggies and meat into it for about 8 hours and sit down to a wholesome, cheap and delicious meal that won’t heat your kitchen up when it’s over 90 degrees outside. My children always love it when I use my slow cooker for dinners.

I have never had a dishwasher in my home, but did have one in an apartment I rented years back. For some reason I am not a huge fan of dishwashers, but when Summer time is here and the kids would prefer Mama play with them over doing household chores I often wonder if I should go out and find a cheap dishwasher for my home. Honestly I don’t have the room for one, but it’s a good thought.

I have a lot of flatware in my home and don’t use plastic silverware when having picnics, I use my kitchen flatware for all picnics and BBQ’s as well as birthday party events because I love washing dishes, even if my children would much rather me get a dishwasher. One thing I would say I wish I had in my home was more ceramic kitchen bowls and similar. I don’t have any fancy dinnerware supplies in my home. Everything I own has been handed down to me or received for free from various places like Freecycle or Craigslist.

Question for Thought: What are some ideas you have to help give you more time and heat your house up less during the Summer months?
