Usually, it's what's cool about a particular town (although I confess I've been really bad about blogging regularly lately). This time, it's what's cool in my tiny RV kitchen. One cool thing is my Bullet-To-Go. This is what I mix my breakfast shake in, or scramble eggs, or... so you know I use it daily. (and no, this is not an affiliate link.)
You've seen the Magic Bullet on TV, certainly - and you can get them in retail stores - but the existence of the Bullet-To-Go is not so widely known. I'm not really sure why they aren't advertising it in RV magazines.
The truth is I'm not overly fond of their website. It's kind of As Seen On TV hype-ish, and I prefer to just be given straight-forward information and ordering... but the product itself makes up for it. The blender parts and cups and lids are the same as the regular plug-in version, but it comes with a battery base and charger. It holds its charge quite a long while and is easy to use. And it's LOTS more versatile than the smoothie blender I used to use.
The other cool thing I have is a SodaStream. It's a sleek gadget that carbonates water. They sell flavor concentrates for different flavor sodas, but I like to mix up my own carbonated drinks with real juice. I've talked about it on my Sweet Enough Already blog but I just realized I probably hadn't mentioned it here - even though I bought my SodaStream at Camping World over a year ago. I've given some as gifts, too - to people who love theirs as much as I love mine - and they've turned other people on to it also. If you like to drink sparkling water, cola, root beer, your own healthy mix... and not carry cans, you might like this.
Yes I have - had? - an affiliate link - I think it's expired and I have to do something to put up a new ad to get credit - which I haven't done - but that's not the point. I want both these companies to do lots of business so when I wear mine out eventually they are still in business and I can replace them.
