USA Pan

Looking for a gift for the baker in your life?  We love these pans. We first got a USA Pan a few years ago and from the first time we used these pans we fell in love.

We have the square cake pan, small bread loaf pan, and two cookie sheets.

They have a wonderful non stick surface. Great storage. The baking sheets have a great lip on one edge to grab the pan but the other side is open so you can slide things off.

“They are so good, she won’t let me cook any of my stuff on them,” said Charlie. “Nothing savory.”

“I protect my pans” from the chickens and meats, she replied.

They have a wonderful non stick surface, but made with silicone not Teflon, so we are very glad that they are non-toxic.  Great storage.

Blue Jeans- Bullet Blues

I decided to try another Made in the USA blue jeans brand, since I can’t find the Lucky Made in the USA jeans on their web site right now.

Bullet Blues are made in the USA, with made in the USA materials too.

I got the Bullet Blues jeans“Audace – Dark wash cowgirl boot cut.” They fit well and have cute red stitching that add a stylish touch.

Since getting these, I have had several compliments on them so I think they are a good pair of jeans.

They are expensive, but I only buy a couple pairs of jeans per year and wear them all the time, so it works for me.

 

Water Bottle

Among all the water bottles on the shelf at Triathlete Sports in water bottleBangor, I checked them all and was glad to find a Made in the USA, BPA free one that fits great in my bike.

I think LL Bean sells the same one, and you can probably get it lots of places. I got it in blue and went back for a 2nd one that’s clear. It is a little tricky to clean, so you may need a brush with a handle, but I think that’s the case with many water bottles. A little bleach rinse every once in a while seems to work great.
