Tommy and I visit Branson often, and when I say often, I mean at least once every couple of years. It is one of my most favorite vacation spots. While we are there, we like to visit The Spice & Tea Exchange that is along the Branson Landing shopping strip. Browsing their website recently, I found this Summer BBQ Sampler pack [only $19.79 too!]. We have tried their spice rubs, salts and sugars and they are absolutely amazing. If you get a chance to go into one of their stores, do it, you get to smell, taste, and browse their collection. Tommy and I could spend hours in there! Anyway, this sampler pack includes a Backwoods Hickory Rub Spice Blend (1 oz), Carolina BBQ Rub Spice Blend (1 oz), Smoked BBQ Rub Spice Blend (1 oz), Smokehouse Rub Spice Blend (1 oz).

Website Description:

Spice up your summer barbecues with this sizzling Summer BBQ Sampler! A great variety of barbeque styles; add these delicious spice rubs to meat before grilling and try on ribs, pulled pork, chicken, brisket, and other many other barbecue favorites!

Grilling outside [in Texas] right now is almost impossible due to the heat wave that seems to start at 8am and doesn’t let up until 9pm, however, when it cools off at night, we will be grilling some steak and chicken using this Summer BBQ Sampler pack! You can even order online and have it delivered directly to your house! Order yours today!


|Sandwich Secret|

Posted on Updated on


“When dad’s away, mom doesn’t cook.” 

That’s exactly how I felt today when I got home from work. Rhett has fever, I’m just exhausted, and who really wants to cook over a hot stove for thirty minutes when it’s 100+ degrees outside? [Not this wife/mom.]

With that being said, I made hot sandwiches for dinner. Super easy, and actually really delicious. It’s delicious because I have a little secret….. After you make your sandwich how you want it, heat the skillet up on medium-high with just a dab of olive oil. Once it’s nice & hot, spread some MAYO on the OUTSIDE of one slice of your bread. Plop it wet side down in the oil and let it sizzle! It literally takes 1-2 minutes per side. Before you flip, make sure you spread mayo on the upright side. Flip and let cook for another 1-2 minutes. It gives the bread a nice creamy crust! Super YUMMY and QUICK! This mom is done for the day! Signing out before 7pm and I foresee my bed before 9pm. Happy Tuesday readers!

[Sandwich pictured above features sliced pepper jack cheese, fresh deli sourdough bread, deli honey baked ham, and mayo on the inside and out. Easy as that!]

I wanted to start doing something FUN weekly with my blog so I have decided to start up my Friday Find. Whether it be food, clothes, home decor, furniture, places to go, etc… if I find it, and it’s worthy, I’m posting. 🙂 To kick it off, I found this super cute Marrakech Swing Chair from Urban Outfitters on sale for only $179.00! It would look absolutely •PERFECT• hanging from my back porch. Maybe I can talk Thomas into purchasing it. Christmas list here I come!
