Tasty Tuesday: Pineapple Grilled Salmon

Thank you Patti Watson from Pampered Chef for today’s recipe…

USING PINEAPPLE PEEL AS GRILLING PLANKS IMPARTS A WONDERFUL FLAVOR TO THE SALMON AND KEEPS IT FROM STICKING TO THE GRILL.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1   pineapple
  • 4   salmon filets, 6 oz (175 g) each
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) Teriyaki Sauce with Honey
  • 1 cup (250 mL) rice, uncooked
  • 2 cups (500 mL) water
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) salt, divided
  • ½ cup (125 mL) grape tomatoes
  • 1   garlic clove, peeled
  • ½   jalapeño pepper, seeds removed
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) cilantro, loosely packed
  • ½   lime

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the Indoor Outdoor Portable Grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Slice the top and bottom off of the pineapple and peel and core it using the Pineapple Wedger.
  3. Place the salmon filets on top of each of the four pineapple peels and brush with the Teriyaki Sauce with Honey.
  4. Grill the salmon, covered, for 25–30 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 120°F (50°C) for medium doneness.
  5. Meanwhile, add the rice, water, and ¼ tsp (1 mL) of the salt to the Rice Cooker Plus and cook in the microwave according to package directions.
  6. Cut half of the peeled and cored pineapple into 1″ (2.5 cm) pieces, reserving the other half for a later use. Working in 2 batches, coarsely chop the pineapple using the Manual Food Processor and place it in a medium mixing bowl.
  7. Chop the tomatoes, garlic, jalapeño, and cilantro using the Manual Food Processor and add the mixture to the pineapple. Juice the lime using the Citrus Press and add the liquid to the pineapple mixture.
  8. Combine the cooked rice and the pineapple mixture. When the salmon is finished cooking, serve it on the planks with the rice mixture.

Business Tips and Tricks

You and Your Hostess – Better Together

 

better together

If you are in direct sales, and more importantly, in a party plan business, you know that the bulk of your business is going to be a result of your parties – home, online/catalog or Facebook.

Amazing women are going to host parties.  They are going to welcome their friends and family into their home with the expectation that they are going to buy your products.  PLUS, you are hoping that they will host a party with you and invite their friends to come back for more products.  In the midst of all of this you are hopefully building a relationship with these woman.

These ladies are going to get down and dirty with you – they are going to know how you work. You are going to help them by showing them how to have a successful party when YOU hostess coach.   They are going to learn about the business – your business (and whether it could be for them).  They are going to know the ins and outs of your hostess reward program.  Of course all of this is based on the fact that you do your job right!

So far it seems like they are doing all the work, right?  So she is expecting to be HOOKED UP!

Here is where you come in…..Picture it: she is hosting and getting her friends to buy, come to a party, join a party, sacrifice family time, etc.  Trust me she wants to be hooked up so she is getting the best bang for her buck. .

YOU are going to:

  • work your tail off to get her as many orders as you can!
  • work with her every step of the way through hostess coaching!
  • work with her to get her those spare specials, if it is possible.
  • want her to get as much as possible, for as cheap as possible.

Now, I am sure you have heard that it is not a good idea to let your guests or your hostess take those spare specials.  To be honest, this has never hurt my business.  Picture the guest who really wants the special but may not be able to afford much.  Maybe it is an either or situation.  Maybe if she spends the $35 to qualify for the special, she won’t be able to afford the special.  Wouldn’t it be better to help the guest out instead of not having a sale at all?  Listen to what your guests are saying so that you can help your hostess get it all.

It helps you out by building a relationship and loyalty especially with your hostess.  It lets her know that you listened to her wish list, her desires, her needs and what she is wanting!

Do what it takes man, so long as its legal and within your company’s guidelines!

I promise you this, when you work hard for her, she will work hard for you and she will be back. She will become very loyal and so will her friends cause she is going to talk you up!

Good customer service is SO hard to come by these days, be that GOOD customer service!

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Halfway Through Summer

12 weeks of summer FB

Did I get your attention?  Yes, I said halfway through summer.  Well, at least in our Thirty One pink bubble, we are at the halfway point of summer.  That means exciting things for you – as a customer, a hostess or even finding some extra money.

 

As a hostess, you can pick one of these AWESOME sets.  Which one fits your style?

HO 6:15 HO 6:22 HO 6:29

I know you are saying, I don’t have time to host a party.  Guess what?  We can set up at your office during lunch or after hours.  We can take it to the park during one of the kids games.  How about grabbing coffee and dessert OUT with a few girl friends?  How about a catalog party?  I will provide you with catalogs and a few products to show off – you collect $200 in orders (which is only about 6 orders) and YOU get FREE product.  Have a lot of friends on Facebook?  How about a Facebook party?  Just 30 minutes is all it takes.  There is a party style to fit even the busiest schedule.

Okay, so you really just want to shop.  Here are some simple solutions and gift ideas for your family and friends.   I

How about the SURPRISE Customer specials?

Customers are LOVING these.  What I do know is that they have been worth every penny in the previous weeks.  They have ranged from mini diamond districts to wallets to organizing products.  Remember those grab bags as a kid?  Now, we have the grown up version just for YOU.

Want to make some extra money this summer?

There are so many reasons to be a consultant during this time….Yes, consultants will also receive a REWARD! So for $99 you will get:

Then you begin hosting parties and every 30 days, you will have the chance to pick one of these sets when you have $600 in sales:

Did I mention the CASH that will go into YOUR pocket?  For a $600 party which is average, you will get a check for $150.  That would help with expenses on vacation or to put aside for school clothes shopping, right?
