Getting Ready For Fall With Mean Green Cleaning Products!! #MeanGreen #Clean

**All opinion expressed are 100% my own.  I was compensated for this post, and given products for review purposes.**


Mean Green is known as a national and international, superior all-purpose cleaner for the toughest jobs around your house, your garage or your work. The iconic "Super Strength" formula is made with a unique blend of detergents and solvents that form a powerful heavy duty cleaner and degreaser. Lab tests prove it beats nearly every other cleaner on nearly every stain. And because it’s biodegradable, and contains no acid, ammonia, or bleach, you can feel safe using it just about anywhere, inside and out.

I hate to say it, but summer is over.  Ugh!!  Now I am trying to prepare the outside of the house for the yucky winter weather.  The pool has been taken down, the bulk of the outside toys have been put away, and I have started to clean off the porches belongings and am putting them away.

This year, I am working with Mean Green on a series of posts all about cleaning, and how they can make chores much easier.

I was sent a variety of products to try, and considering the items I am cleaning up, I needed some heavy duty stuff!!    

The lawnmower is the bane of my existence.  We do not have a shed for it, so it is kept on our covered porch all year when not being used.  I have to empty it of all fluids, cover it, and put it in the corner.  


I used Mean Green's Auto & Garage Cleaner & Degreaser, to help with that difficult chore.



Look how yucky my lawnmower is!! 





With the Auto & Garage Cleaner & Degreaser, I sprayed on, waited a minute, and wiped clean.

The lawn mower looks much better, and is now winterized and ready for next years clipping season!!




You can purchase Mean Green products at Walmart, Family Dollar, Dollar General or on Amazon.  Make sure you follow them on Facebook and Twitter to keep tabs on new products and contests, and keep checking back here for more reviews!!

Who's Hungry?? Fair Foods Cookbook Review #Fairs #FairFood

**All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not compensated for this post.  I was given items for review purposes.**



Fair Foods is an illustrated cookbook featuring the recipes of the most popular and offbeat food served at state and county fairs across the USA.

Packed with 120 original recipes created by award-winning chef, best-selling author, and renowned educator George Geary, Fair Foods includes such state and county fair classics as Texas Maple Bacon Donuts, The World’s Gooiest Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting, Aztec Hot Chocolate, Witch’s Brew, Caramel Kettle Corn, Fried Sweet Potato Sticks, Ten-Pound Cheesebuns, Cheesecake on a Stick, Chocolate-Encased Bacon, Fried Coca-Cola, Fried Guacamole, Fried Oreo Cookies, BBQ Turkey Legs, Bacon-Wrapped Chicken and Waffles, Blue Ribbon Chili, Pork Chop on a Stick, and Spicy Peanut Butter and Jelly Burgers.

Each page in Fair Foods is lavishly illustrated with both vintage and contemporary photographs of America’s most beloved fair foods, as well as fun and lively images of rides and attractions and nostalgic ephemera. Fair Foods is not only mouth wateringly addictive, it also captures the joy and spirit of America’s greatest state and county fairs.

It's that time of year.  Fairs are happening all over the USA.  Right now, we have a large one going on called The Big E.  It is a fair for all of New England.  We go every year to visit the state buildings.  Each state in New England has their own building, and can showcase the greatness of their state.  Maine is a particular favorite of ours because they make the best baked potatoes!!

Along with the state buildings, we eat, and eat, and eat!!  What's better then yummy but probably bad for you foods??  Now you can make your own fair foods at home, and eat the good stuff all year long.

I love maple.  I love donuts.  Put the two together, and yum!!  In the cookbook is a recipe for Maple Bacon Donuts.  I vetoed the bacon, and made my own "donuts."  Without a donut pan, I made doffins!!  They were a little more cake like then donut, but they were really yummy!!








There are many other recipes to choose from.  The best voted foods from all over.  The one thing the book doesn't share, is where the foods are most popular.  I would love if they had given some history as to where those items are from and how they started.

All in all, there are many recipes we will be trying in this house!!

You can purchase your own cookbook through Amazon below!!
