How to Grill a Perfect Steak featuring FarmFoods Beef Top Round

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review. Post contains affiliate link.
It truly was a perfect steak, likely one of the best I've ever eaten in my lifetime. My husband is a grilling genius! When we moved from Hawaii to Kansas in 2016, we didn't own any housewares, and buying a grill seemed frivolous when we needed so many other things. About a month ago, our neighbor was selling a barely used grill and we snapped it up at a great price, just in time to start grilling up these amazing beef cuts from FarmFoods!
One of the cuts of beef in our Beef Sampler Package from FarmFoods was a Beef Top Round. It is a huge cut of steak and nearly covers a dinner plate, with easily enough beef for two adults. Our entire Sampler Pack came frozen in dry ice for shipping, so we defrosted the Beef Top Round for a few hours prior to dinner.
I told my husband I needed him to write down what he used and did to make this perfect steak, so I could share it with you. First of all, you need to marinate the steak to make it tender. Hubby says to apply Adolph's Meat Tenderizer and McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning to both side of the steak. Wet each side with 1/2 tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce, then poke some holes in the steak with a fork to aid in tenderizing. Sprinkle 1/4 tsp. minced garlic on top and let marinate 30 minutes on a plate.
While your steak is marinating, preheat your outdoor grill. Hubby says preheat to approximately 400 degrees F, or the use of one burner on medium. Grill the steak on the first side for 5 minutes, then flip it over and grill for 3 minutes on the other side. Remove from heat, let rest a minute, then serve. Our steak was so perfect, so tender, so delicious, with its soft center and just-barely crispy edges. My mouth is watering just looking at the pictures again!
FarmFoods is an online retailer of grassfed beef. They sell grassfed beef, with NO hormones or antibiotics, directly from partner farms (small local family farms), and help American families eat more healthy in a very affordable way. This is only the second cut of beef we've had so far out of our Beef Sampler Pack and I'm already beyond impressed.
You can buy as much or as little as you want, whenever you need it. It is shipped frozen, directly to your door, and FarmFoods prices beat the grocery store and the meat market. This is the best way to feed your family beef because you will know exactly where your beef comes from, and how it was raised. If you are looking for a better way to feed your family, I highly recommend FarmFoods!

Tiki Toss - The Game Everyone Loves

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
There is always at least one person on my holiday list that completely stumps me when it comes to finding just the right present. Now that we've played Tiki Toss, I know it is the gift that everyone will love, even the person who seems to have everything. Tiki Toss is the original hook and ring game that is simply good, clean fun. Tiki Toss Surf and Free Toss Basketball come in both original style and deluxe style.
Always the life of the party, Tiki Toss is described as addictive, competitive, and meditative. You can play alone, against a friend, or with the entire family. It can be set up indoors or outdoors, take it along with you and play on the go! Great for the patio, game room, dorm, workshop, cabin, and backyard. Take it along tailgating or to the campsite with accessories like camp ready straps.
The original style and the deluxe edition seem to differ in just one way...the deluxe editions of Tiki Toss Surf and Free Toss Basketball include a five foot telescoping pole from which to hang the ring or basketball, whereas the original style allows you to hang the ring or basketball from an overhang. Since I really don't have an overhang that would work, I opted to install the deluxe version of both.
Tiki Toss even includes the screws for you to hang your new game. Assembly is quick and simple, hanging the games was equally as quick and simple. We decided to hang our games on the side of our very old freestanding garage which is our future barn when our new garage is built. One side of the garage is within the fenced area of our backyard, so it's the perfect spot for entertaining.
Tiki Toss features a 100% bamboo backboard (the sustainable choice) that is beautiful and sturdy. The telescoping pole features two holes on the tip where the string feeds in one side and out the other, then a small knot can be tied for an extra tight grip on the string that holds the ring or basketball.
The Free Toss Basketball features a basketball hoop with a small basketball net that simply locks into place on the backboard. The Tiki Toss Surf features a hook that locks into place in the same way. If you're installing your games outside, the extra pieces can be removed and stored during inclement weather.
It took maybe five minutes to get both games permanently installed and set up. Then my husband and I ended up hanging out in the backyard, playing both games, until it got dark outside. They are so much fun to play and although we cannot see any neighbors from our backyard, they had to have heard us laughing loudly.
Tiki Toss Surf and Free Toss Basketball are perfect gifts for everyone! It's a great gift for guys, teens, college students, school-agers, retired people, that uncle who is impossible to buy for, bosses, co-workers, and even your mail carrier. There are several other designs and versions available, so you can check off everyone on your list.
We love Tiki Toss and Free Toss! We had way more fun playing, than just sitting on the couch watching another re-run on television. It got us up on our feet, moving around, laughing, and outside in the fresh air. It's a great way to get some daily exercise and have fun doing it!

Jumbo Magnatab - Glow In The Dark #kids #creativity

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review. Post contains affiliate links.
Kids love to be creative and it is important that we, as adults, foster their creativity and provide lots of opportunities for children to have access to different kinds of art media. If your family is constantly on the move, you can still provide creative outlets for your kids that don't require paint, clay, markers, or even crayons. The Jumbo Magnatab is a mess-free, self-contained creative toy that can go anywhere your child goes!
The Jumbo Magnatab from Kid O is a free-form drawing tablet that also glows in the dark, which is fabulous for families that travel at night, especially in a car. I'm willing to bet it's also a favorite of kids who like to stay up and play under the covers after mom and dad put them to bed. Jumbo Magnatab is filled with tiny little magnetic balls that are permanently locked inside the tab case.
The "pen" is actually a magnetic stylus that pulls each magnetic ball up to the surface of the tablet case and clicks it into place. It also works as the "eraser" because when the stylus is turned sideways, it can be swept across the face of the tablet to knock all the balls back down inside the case. The stylus stores conveniently in its own spot on the front of the Jumbo Magnatab.
The Jumbo Magnatab measures just over 9" x 7" and its slim design easily fits into any backpack, book bag, and even a back-of-the-seat pocket in the car. Designed for ages 3 and up, Jumbo Magnatab will entertain children for hours. The possibilities for fun and creativity are endless! As a child development specialist, I give Kid O five stars for the Glow In The Dark Jumbo Magnatab!
The glow in the dark aspect of the Jumbo Magnatab makes this toy superior to similar products. I love that it creates no mess, love that it can go anywhere, and love that it is all self-contained. I tried to get the little magnetic balls to come out, but they stayed securely in the case. This is an excellent gift idea for either boys or girls, and especially for the age 3-10 crowd!
**Bonus - it requires NO batteries!
for your favorite kids for the holidays!
