Pasta With Frozen Peas and Carrots

One of my close friends gave me this recipe, I upgraded it a tad bit, as I did not have some ingredients on hand.


1/2 pack of Spaghetti (or any pasta you like)
1 Scallion, chopped
1 package of frozen carrot and peas mix (or any vegetables you like). Or replace with canned or fresh vegetables.
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup water
garlic powder to taste ( I used garlic salt)
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese (I used flaked Parmesan cheese)


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add one tablespoon oil to water, so the pasta does not stick. Add pasta and cook according to instructions or until al dente. (Al dente means that you cook it one minute less, than required). 100g pasta on 1L of water is the best proportions.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet or pan saute vegetable mix in olive oil until heated through or to your required tenderness. Add lemon juice, garlic salt or powder and water.
  3. Add chopped scallion and cook for 3 more minutes or until done. Do not overcook. Season with salt and pepper to taste
  4. Place strained spaghetti in plate and place the cooked vegetable mix on top. Or you can do it my way. I combined spaghetti and vegetables in the saucer. Placed in plate and sprinkled with flaked Parmesan Cheese.

Bon Appetit! 

ECODENTA Melon flavor enamel toothpaste with mineral calcium salts and fluoride 100 ml

I have tried a lot of different toothpastes. From the ones that costs 0.54 Euro to ones that costs more than 10 Euros per tube. But I like Ecodenta the most. It is made by our brothers Lithuanians and they make really great cosmetics and hygiene products.
I have used Ecodenta toothpastes in the past and this time we used melon flavoured one. And the price for such big tube is really good. This was 100ml, but most of toothpastes comes in 75ml tubes.
I do not recall in my memory when we started this tube, but I think it was more than one month back.

  • Safe for you and the environment - 99% of natural ingredients, parabens, sugar, triclosan and SLS free
  • Protects against acids and plaque - contains calcium glycerophosphate
  • Treats tooth enamel lesions - contains natural calcium source Kalident

I have used Lavender one in past, but the Sea One Force  is as good as other one. they tend to flush out fast comparing to others. You get what you paid for, but for price so cheap it is still good quality product.

UNE Healthy Glow Enhancer *M13* 30ml

I did use this foundation very little, as I bought it online and the shade was way too dark for my skin colour. I did mix it with lighter one I had. This expired.
Although, it was too dark for my skin, I liked it. It cam be easy applied with beauty blender or with fingertips. A little drop covers large area.
This is perfect size for travelling.

Weleda Calendula Weather Protection Cream 30ml

This is the must-have product for your kids and yourself too in winter and autumn. Surprisingly, this is the only product that helped my kid when he had flea bites in our country home. He always had some allergic reaction on flea bites and this cream with some anti-allergies pills did the job really well. The pills was for itching and this cream we used to heal the skin, because occasionally the flea bites got watery and like blisters.
Luckily, he had not been bitten in like two years, and the cream expired as we used only in winter weather when it was below 0 C.
I am throwing this one out and will buy new one in Autumn.
I do like Bübchen Wind & Weather Cream for harsh weather conditions better, but it is not available in local stores any more.

  • Protects delicate skin from drying winds or cold, wet weather
  • Provides a natural protective layer without blocking the skin
  • Ideal for protecting lips
  • Ideal for sensitive skin

Potato Pancakes for Lunch

I had two deep freeze potato pancakes left in the freezer. I had an intention to cook them as breakfast, but I always forgot about them.
So, today I am having a day off work and decided to make a small pre-lunch for myself.
I baked cooked them on slightly greased grill pan for 5-6 minutes. Topped with sour cream and sprinkled with premade cooked onion.

I used these deep freeze pancakes.

Yo do not have to use deep freeze pancakes, you can make them yourself. You can grate your own potatoes, add egg, salt and pepper. Or you can buy already ready made potato pancake mix. Ingredients for ready made mixture are below.

Rexona antiperspirant deodorant Pure diamond 150 ml

This is my favourite antiperspirant deodorant.  I have tried the other one too, but I like the smell better for this one.
this one does not leave yellow stains on white clothes and white shains on blacks. I like that when I spray it I can wear my clothes right away, you do not have to let it dry as other similar products require.
This one states that it have an antiperspirant effectiveness for 48 hours. I still do not get it? Does that mean you do not take shower or bath for that time. I am always wonderin, because I use shower twice a day. Does it still mean I do not have use it every day in the morning because of 48h range? The one spare I have states it is effective up to 72 hours. You just wash your armpits every day, right?

Therapy Antibacterial Odour Neutraliser Liquid Soap 400ml

Today we finished this liquid hand soap. I think I am running low on soap in kitchen too. The one in kitchen I will replace tomorrow, because I only had one extra today in my storage box.
These are cheap, but still does the job. These do not dry your skin as other soaps does.

As I found out today that I have day off tomorrow, I will go shopping for some groceries and other stuff. I still have to figure out the dinner plan for this week. For my lunch at office I made eggplant soup yesterday. Yes, I do not get tired or bored if I do eat the same food for lunch every day. Dinner is always different.

Brait - Air Freshener Spray White Flowers 425g

I did bought this air freshener a while back, only because somebody in my shop had stolen the trigger part. I did have air freshener bottle like that at home, so I bought it and screwed plastic cap from water bottle on top. This bottle top seemed to be smaller than the one I had at home, so I just poured all the content from this bottle to empty one.
I do like the fresh scent from this one and I could consider buying it again if it will be available. Yeah, the old trigger from my bottle have messed up, so I will throw the old one out once it is empty.
I still do not know why there are Orbeez inside.

This description is from online store:
Air freshener spray, effectively masks and absorbs unpleasant odor, replacing it with the pleasant scent of white flowers. In addition, the water mist moistens the air, making the rooms stay refreshed.

I bought second roll of this recently. As I mentioned previously I do not use water wen using it, I just spray the surface and wipe with this towel.
I copied the review I wrote while ago.
FAMILIA DETERGENT CLEANING PAPER 50 LEAF-12'S ARM. This is the newest product in my shop. I decided to try it out. You just wet the paper towel and then wipe any surface. I kind of do not like that when wet it becomes too foamy for me. Leaves a lot of foam on cleaned surface so I have to use another one dry to clean after. I started using them dry inside in kitchen cabinets sprayed with some other detergent to not make them too wet with water.

I also finished Sano paper Towel again. You can find review here.


Toilet paper "Papia", three-layer, color: white, 8 rolls

This is our favourite at the moment. I used to buy Lambi toilet paper, but I have to go to other city to buy it. so I bought Papia toilet paper once to try out. And I am buying it now on a regular basis. As far as I know, I have see these packed in three different quantity packages. My store have packs of 4, 8 and 12 rolls.
this toilet paper have 3 layers and do have approximately 140 sheets in one roll. This toilet papar have B-side Technology - that means that the image is embossed in both sides of the paper. On upper side there are embossed big flowers and word Papia. On dow side there are smaller flowers embossed.
12 rolls for Eur 2.92 - it's a steal!

Toilet paper "Papia" is made from 100% natural cellulose. Soft as cotton, snow-white, strong and absorbing. For those who are looking for perfect whiteness. It is embossed. It comes off along the perforation line. Sheet size: 12 cm x 9.5 cm. Roll length: 16.8 m. Number of layers: 3. Recommended!

Impresan Kitchen Hygiene Cleaner, 500 ml

Today my boy had a swimming competition. First one is in December and second one in May.  This time all was Freestyle swimming. There are four swimming groups. First, girls 25 meters. Second, boys 25 meters. Third, girls 50 meters. Fourth, boys 50 meters.
My boy was in last group as he is attending his swimming class 4 years now.
I am so proud, as he swam 17 seconds faster than previous time.

I have finished using some of products recently. This time it is Impresan Kitchen Hygiene Cleaner, 500 ml. I bought it a while back in some discount store. I did not use it for cleaning my fridge, but I used to lean kitchen table and countertops.
I do like I have not to wait to wipe it away. I can just spray and wipe it immediately.  If  the surface is really dirty you can wait a couple minutes and then wipe it away.
I would definitely buy it again, if this store still have it on stock.  I still doubt it, cause they frequently change their stuff to some other products and brands. I once bought there some cheap and very good German toothpaste. I asked the sale assistant if they have that toothpaste in stock, but she told me that they had only one of that kind.

There are some product information from webpage:

HEITMANN 500ml Hygienic spray for cleaning fridges with biohygienic formula 

• neutralizes odor

Spray surfaces to be cleaned and wipe wet. In case of persistent dirt, wait for a short time.

Spray for kitchen Cinderella Antifat with soda (500 ml)

I had a rough week. The last three days I was in my work all alone. I think as I become older I get tired faster, but I do not like when others see it.
I counted that I do have 7 empty bottles/packagings to write review on, but I will just hold on to one today.
Also, I finished reading Divergent by Veronica Roth, but I still do not know when a review for the book will be ready and published. I need to invest more effort in that.

So, I finished this kitchen grease cleaning product. I do not remember when I bought it, probably, it was a while back. I did like this product as mostly I used to clean my gas stove and cooker hood. It does the cleaning job really well.
I do like that there are two ways of spraying this product. You can turn the nozzle to stream or to spray position. I do always use spray, as I like that products covers more cleaning space.


Highly effective cleaning agent to eliminate fat, dried and other difficult to remove contaminants. Contains a powerful natural cleaner - soda, quickly and safely removing pollution. The tool is ideal for cleaning various surfaces in the kitchen - stoves, countertops, tiles, dishes, household appliances (microwave ovens, extracts, etc.).

Mode of application

Turn the valve to the “open” position. Spray the product onto a dirty surface, wait a bit, then wipe the surface with wet cloth.

Syoss Oleo 21 Intense Care Nourishing Spray for Very Dry & Strawy Hair 100ml

Syoss Oleo 21 Intense Care Nourishing Spray for Very Dry & Strawy Hair 100ml

Wait a minute? Is it possible that one of my hair products expired? Rarely, but it happens in that case if I have similar product and I am using them both simultaneously. I remember that I started to use this product and then I got some expensive hair oil as a gift. And I started using it too, but I never do that.
So I forgot about this product for some time. And it expired.
I liked this product, but not as much as my previous one. But still ok.
You can use it on damp or on dry hair. no need to rinse it out. I used it only on damp hair after they was dried with towel.
I do not need to buy another, because I bought one earlier already.
Oh, my, old head! I do not recall in my memory how much I paid for this one. I found one listing on eBay, you can buy it here if you are interested.

Maybelline Colorama Crayon Khol Eye Liner Number 110, Black Gold

Maybelline Colorama Crayon Khol Eye Liner Number 110, Black Gold

This eye liner expired as I am using makeup so rarely that I used it only couple of times. I can count on one hands fingers how many times I have used makeup in last year.

I liked the colour of this eyeliner as it is goldish-black. One thing I did not like was that it was very hard to draw a line as it was hard and I had to press it on my eyelid hard to draw the line. I got it on some store clearance rack. for 1.09 EUR. I can not remember what the full price was. I wanted to buy replacement on HQHair today, but I do not want to pay with my debit card, but my paypal account was empty. I am waiting for money from online sale to come in my Paypal account tomorrow.
I try to spend only money I have in my Paypal when buying things online. So I can keep track where my money is going and how much I spent.
