Bonefish Grill In Albuquerque, New Mexico Is A Great New Place For Seafood

   I was invited to have lunch at Bonefish Grill before they had their grand opening in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Here in Albuquerque we have a lot of great Mexican restaurants but finding great seafood has always been a problem until now. Bonefish Grill is located on Louisiana at the Coronado Mall and is now open for lunch and dinner, also brunch on Sundays.

   Bonefish Grill is a great place to get great tasting seafood in a relaxing place. I love the waiting area that welcomes you, if you have to wait for a table this looks so comfy. The restaurant people took a lot of thought into designing the place to make it a great place to dine. They even have cool fish art work on the wall.

 Bonefish Grill has fresh fish that is shipped several times a week to the restaurant. You can enjoy their wood-grilled fish with lemon or one of their signature sauces that brings out the flavor of the fish.I was treated to their Chilean Sea Bass along with Seared Ahi Tuna and Wild Pacific Caught Salmon. They were all great tasting, the Chilean Sea Bass was my favorite though. Pictured below is their grilled tuna as the fish I had was so yummy, I forgot to take a picture.

      Bonefish Grill also has many wonderful starters like Bang Bang Shrimp, which is crispy shrimp tossed in a creamy, spicy sauce. I found the spicy sauce to be flavorful with a little kick. I also enjoyed their Lobster Roll Sliders, lobster chunks on a mini authentic New England roll.  Their Cilantro Lime Shrimp Salad had a nice cilantro lime vinaigrette served with it.

Bonefish Grill also serves steaks and chicken on their menu along with desserts that are made in the restaurant. I had the Key Lime Pie that was made with real key limes on a roasted pecan crust. This pie had a great creamy lime taste.

If you sign up on their website to be a BFG insider they will send you a welcome gift and a gift on your birthday. I was sent a coupon for a complimentary order of their Bang Bang Shrimp.

Bonefish Grill is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, along with brunch on Sundays.

Now for the fun part I have a wine gift set to giveaway to the first person who visits Bonefish Grill in Albuquerque. You must show me your receipt, showing the location, on my Facebook page. You must be able to pick up the prize from me in Albuquerque. For my Cottonwood church friends, I will bring it to you on Sunday. Also you must be 21 years or older to receive the wine, if I don't know you I will ask to see your ID.

"These opinions are my own and I was compensated with a free meal, the above wine set, and a gift card for a future visit."

Pure Shea Butter Is Awesome For Dry Skin

                      Shea Butter is a awesome natural product for dry skin. Shea Butter is made from the Shea nut that is grown in Africa. This product looks just like butter and has a nice nutty scent.

     I was sent a pound of 100% Shea Butter to review and let me tell you I love it. I have tried Shea Butter    as an ingredient in lotions but never in its pure 100%  form. Pure Shea butter is an excellent deep moisturizer. This product has the texture of butter but when you take a little bit and warm it up with your fingers it becomes a great cream that absorbs into your skin quickly without being greasy. A little bit goes a long way. 

 This wonderful 100% natural and organic Shea Butter is great for dry skin, eczema, and stretch marks.This product is also great for acne prone skin as it does not clog the pores.When I applied the Shea Butter to my  dry hands, they felt so soft, like I went to a spa. I love that this product is made from a natural nut and has no chemicals in it. As you can see in the picture above, the Shea Butter comes in a resealable and recyclable container that makes it easy to use and store the Butter. The price of these product is very reasonable as  a pea size portion is plenty for both  hands.

To purchase this awesome Shea Butter, just click on the below link.

 Trust me, you need to try it. It makes you skin feel so soft.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

When I use Davidson's Safest Choice eggs I can eat the dough without worries. The Safest Choice™ all natural egg pasteurization process eliminates the risk of Salmonella in eggs before the eggs even enter your kitchen.

Fulcrum Gallery Has Artwork For Almost Any Wall In Your House

      I have discovered a great way to shop for artwork for your home. Fulcrum Gallery is an online store that sells artwork for almost any taste. They have a wide selection of framed art, canvas prints, and posters at affordable prices. You can choose to have them frame your selection or order the print to put in your own frame. Fulcrum Gallery makes it easy to bring art to your walls. The headings on their home page allows you to look at the art by styles, rooms, subjects, artists, or size. You can also search by color to make a perfect match for your wall.

I was allowed to choose a product from their website and the variety was so much that I had a hard time deciding. I found the abstract category  was where I wanted to select my print from. When I looked through the abstract category, I found the circle art was just what I wanted for my selection. I was then able to narrow my selection down to size and color with the filters on their website. I wanted a large print in either purple or brown. I finally decided on the print above and I knew that it would be perfect for my wall. I was then able to customize my print. I was able to choose my art in print, laminate, canvas, or framed. I chose my print in laminate and the size is 37" X 37". This print is very large as in the photo below, it is on my dinning room table.

The print arrived within a week after I ordered it. I was very pleased with the way it look. The only thing I would change is the way it was sent to me. I ordered my print without a frame so it came rolled up in a tube shaped box and I had to flatted it out with heavy books. I choose not to frame it because I had a different use for the print. As a blogger I am always looking for new ways to display my work. I knew I would be able to wipe the laminate.So I knew my selection would be perfect for backdrops.

Fulcrum Gallery is my new place to go to when I need art. 

Go take a look and tell me what  print is your favorite. Do you need artwork for your walls?

KITCHEN KNIGHT Digital Food Thermometer Is A Must For Cooking Meat

 I don't allow my family to eat meat unless my husband cooks it. Too many people get sick from under cooked meat. Under cooked meat can have dangerous bacteria like Listeria, E Coli. and Salmonella in it. Cooking the meat to a proper temperature is the only way to kill these bacteria. My husband knows that using a thermometer to check the temperature of the meat is the only way to fight these bacteria. Too many people think that they can tell if the meat is cooked properly by sight but taking the temperature of the meat is the only way to tell if the meat is safe to eat. Don't take risks- get a Kitchen Knight Digital Food thermometer to make sure your meat has reach a safe temperature before serving it to your family.

The  Kitchen Knight SD2810W Digital Food Thermometer makes cooking meat easy with its large easy to read numbers. This thermometer is ideal for grilling too. You simply stick in in your meat and press the on button. It will quickly tell you the temperature of your meat. The Kitchen Night has a temperature range of -58 F to 572 F making it great to use for other things like making yogurt or candy. I love that this product is waterproof too. You can also check the temperature of your refrigerator with the accurate quick read probe of the thermometer.

My church had a barbecue today and the Kitchen Knight thermometer came it handy to make sure the meat was safe to eat. The last thing our church needed was a bunch of people getting sick from under cooked meat. My husband was able to quickly take the temperature of the burgers with the Kitchen Knight thermometer. So don't take chances at having dangerous bacteria in your meat, use the Kitchen Knight thermometer and know that your meat is cooked to proper temperature.
