Watering Made Easy with LeakFree Watering System #Gardening #DIY

As the summer heat continues, the need to water our vegetable gardens, flowers and yards becomes a daily task. While I usually enjoy my time outside, I don’t enjoy using a leaky watering system.  You know the kind- you turn on the water and the faucet waters the house while the spray nozzle sprays you, your shoes, runs down your arm and basically does everything but water what you wanted? That’s why I am happy to work with our sponsor LeakFree by Nelson to share this information with you. They were kind enough to send me a Leakfree starter kit to try free of charge.

Hundred-Foot Journey Inspired Recipes and Gourmet Getaway Sweepstakes #GourmetGetaway
The Hundred Foot Journey is certainly my top movie pick of the year for so many reasons and naturally, for the food!
As a World Market ambassador, I have the wonderful opportunity to share my love of World Market and the upcoming The Hundred Foot Journey film ...and to introduce you to some divine French and Indian cuisine inspired by the film! #sponsored

The food aspect of The Hundred Foot Journey is certainly an aspect of the film that attracts me.  (This tidbit surely comes as no surprise to long-time Rural Mom readers!) I find the class of classic cuisine cultures that fuse together in delightful new ways highly appealing, both in the global food dishes the film inspires and the story line it parallels.

In US theaters August 8, The Hundred Foot Journey is based on the best-selling novel by Richard C. Morris.  Starring Helen Mirren, the film follows the life of Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal,) who is a culinary ingĂ©nue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch.

Madeleines Recipe #FoodieFriday #100FootJourneyEvent

I took my first taste of Madeleines at a French bakery during our family trip to Paris last year.  Though I certainly knew what they were, I simply hadn't had the opportunity to sample or test my hand at baking this treat.  From the very first bite I realized the delectable joy I'd been missing out on! 

Now, I'm thrilled to have a recipe direct from Le Cordon Bleu, courtesy of our friends at DreamWorks Pictures to use in the Rural Mom kitchen and to share with you!

Take a Vacation at Your Local State and County Fairs #Family #Travel

You yearn to travel, but the budget is tight. Traveling to a destination that is both enjoyable and affordable can be much closer than you think, though, state and county fairs have always been popular for anyone desiring to get away for a day or a weekend trip.  

For families, nothing is more enjoyable or fun for the kids than attending your own state or county fair.  They offer great food and an abundance of free entertainment, events, and activities suitable for everyone.
