Why I Love My Steam Shark

     When I think of how much easier it is to use my Steam Shark versus the old mop and bucket, I fall even more in love with it. True, it was a bit spendy ($119.99 @Target when I bought it last winter), but really I will save that much in cleaning solutions overtime. All I have to put in my Steam Shark is water.*Use distilled water for a longer lasting steam mop.* Distilled water is really cheap at your local Albertson’s, Smith’s or Von’s ($1-$3). I fill it, choose a mop head and mop cover, plug her in and steam my way to sanitary floors.

     Granted, it doesn’t sanitize carpets, it only “freshens” them. But still, my Steam Shark is so worth the buy! Especially if you have all wood or tile floors! The mop covers come right off and go straight into your washing machine to be cleaned and used again. Use them until you think you’ve worn them out, rather than using disposable mop covers that you have to buy continuously. The Steam Shark really does clean. When I walk on my freshly “sharked” kitchen floor, I can FEEL that it is clean. No stickiness, just clean. Overall, I have to say the small investment I paid for my Steam Shark was well worth doing away with hands-and-knees style floor cleaning.

Yummy Breakfast Skillet

Today I would like to share a yummy breakfast skillet recipe with you, out of which you can make breakfast burritos!

This was for a family of three, so you can alter these numbers and measurements according to your specific needs and preferences.

Step 1: Dice two medium size russet potatoes into small cubes. Cut half a pack of turkey bacon into bite size pieces. Combine potatoes and bacon in a large skillet with a TBSP of EVOO *This is to keep your potatoes from burning before the turkey bacon can produce any grease* and any desired spices. *I used cajun seasoning and black pepper. I personally DO NOT add salt to my dishes* Cook on medium heat until bacon is cooked thoroughly and potatoes are soft.

Step 2: Dice up one green bell pepper and one-half an onion. Also cut three cloves of garlic into thin slices. Combine veggies and garlic with your still sizzling’ potatoes and bacon...

 and continue to cook over medium heat until green pepper reaches desired texture.

Step 3: Scramble five (or more) large, white eggs *Note my picture shows three, but that turned out not to be enough*

 and grate approximately 4 oz of desired flavor of cheese *This is a measurement you might alter to taste*. Pour eggs over skillet mixture.

Push around with your spatula or spoon until eggs are cooked. Then add your cheese and stir continuously until cheese is all melty and delicious.

Step 4: Heat up, fry in EVOO or use straight from the bag, enough flour tortillas for everyone to make burritos. Spoon some of your skillet mixture onto your tortilla and add a little Cholula hot sauce or whatever kind you prefer. Wrap it up and enjoy!

Final Thought: All in all, this is actually a pretty healthy dish. By using EVOO and TURKEY bacon you omit things like butter, vegetable oil and pork fat. You also use FRESH vegetables and garlic. Garlic has been said to have many medicinal qualities such as containing antioxidants which can help protect the body from “free radicals”. The hot sauce may be questionable, but hey, sometimes you gotta spice it up!
