I dropped my business card off a couple months ago and they were in the process of going through a change of ownership.

Well!!


Last night there was a message on my machine from the owner who wants to do a vendor show and a ribbon cutting. Others will be there such as Silpada, Tupperware, and I recommended my friend who does 31 Products if she would be interested...

So what should I set up, we're in the planning stages, etc., so I don't know any other details, but the BESTEST MOST MOTIVATIONAL THING SHE SAID TO ME:

"when someone suggested Pampered Chef, I immediately thought of you"

I'm having an effect on people!!!! WAHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:chef::love::cool::sing:

That is so great that they called you! I would focus on the Healthy Meals in Minutes (WW meals) or the Budget friendly meals. I am doing a booth at the YMCA on 4/17 for Healthy Kids day and this is what I'm focusing on. Def use the DCB and Food Chopper and Prep bowls. Show items that make everyday healthy eating easy.

Salad Spinner! Great way to make fresh produce last longer and enable folks to eat healthier....I know it works for me! I throw out so much less fresh produce when I can wash/spin my produce and store it. It's ready to use when I want it, and it lasts longer.

Display the prep bowl set to encourage portion control. Display the trifle bowl for salads or sugar free and low fat dessert recipes (banana pudding). I also use the shaker every day to drink out of. It keeps my ice water cold longer then any other cups I have used and it fits easily in cup holders. I put a straw in mine and it sticks out the top and the jigger still fits snuggly on top for no spills.

Maybe a dumb question, but once you wash it, do you have to store it differently than in the typical grocer bags or packaging for it to last longer? My son LOVES fresh fruit and veggies. Won't eat cooked veggies, so I buy it and it doesn't last long enough. Bananas are the worst. I've tried the fridge and on the counter and always end up throwing at least 2 out within a few days.

Like the Chiquita Banana song says...never keep your bananas in the refrigerator. Keep them away from your apples too!

When the bananas get very ripe, I peel them, wrap them individually in foil, and stick them in a freezer bag in the freezer. They are the BEST for making any kind of fruit smoothie - and my son will always drink a smoothie!

I take 1/2 a frozen banana (whole if I'm making 2 servings)
and about 1/2-1 cup of other frozen or fresh fruit (favs: berries of any kind, kiwi, peaches, mango)
some juice (again, whatever we have on hand)
and some yogurt - usually plain, sometimes sweetened.

Blend this all up and enjoy! I also sometimes put protein powder or flax meal or wheat germ in too.


Oh - and a HUGE Favorite is a frozen banana, 2 tbls peanut butter, and 1/2 cup milk w/ 1/2 cup plain yogurt. Add a scoop of nestle's quik if you'd like!

Becky, I do the same, but will also use them to make banana bread every so often. Only problem, these days with 3 boys, fruit never goes bad, so Whenever I see a store selling the bananas that have started to go bad, I will buy them and freeze those.

You might want to consider using some of your spices, to make up the Spice Sample, with your business card attached. Or, stamp up your mini-catalogs, and hand them out. It gets your name to them on something they will keep. If you have old catalogs, you can put on the label, about calling you for a current catalog, or to have a party, or fund raiser.

Also, ask if you can have a display table sometime in the first month, to HWC? Curves is very nice about having members do display tables. Mine encourages me to do one at least twice a year. In my early days, it was the greatest source of Bookings. So, consider becoming a member, and meeting some new folks in your community.
