Best Tall Socks You’ll Ever Find!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. pixel Best Tall Socks You'll Ever Find! Having the infamous ‘soft ball player’ calves, it is almost impossible to find a pair of long socks that I can wear comfortably.  Typically, they either fall down constantly or cut off circulation.  Drives me insane!  I was skeptical when I saw the Wearever brand, but figured it was worth giving a shot.  No harm, no foul right?

pixel Best Tall Socks You'll Ever Find! After getting them, I was super excited to try them out!  Weird the things that makes us happy as we get older.  LOL.  So, Sunday came and I gave them a spin!  Wearing my new socks, I set out!  I was pleasantly surprised to find that not only did they NOT cut off my circulation, they also stayed up!  For all you folks with nice, pretty non-softball player type legs, you may not get this.  Who knows, maybe you will, but for my sisters with the strong, thick calves, I know you feel me!  These socks fit, correctly, no slipping or hurting me!  I’m sold.  I don’t think I’ll ever try another type of long socks again!  They are perfect!  Not too thick, not too thin.  Perfect!  Comfortable.  Love love love them!  Yes, I know, I’m excited about socks.  Again, if you don’t have calves like mine you probably will never understand my excitement.  If you do, you are probably completely ready to check them out, I suggest getting your debit card now!  You won’t regret this purchase!
You should know that they are marketed for diabetics and for good reason.  I can see why they would be great for diabetics, given that they really allowed circulation without pain.  As many of you know, diabetics are at a huge risk of having issues with their feet due to poor circulation.  Don’t let that hinder you, if you have diabetes you’ll love these socks.  If you don’t, you’ll love these socks!

We received a variety pack to explore and it was not disappointing in the least!  It included the original, spicy, and mango habanero.  They all had great flavor and were certainly delicious, but my favorite was the spicy pork jerky!  Normally I’m notable to have spicy stuff but this one was right on the nose!  I shared a piece and Chief Zoo Keeper was a fan as well.  Unfortunately, for the sake of this review he wasn’t able to have anymore.  Haha.

Herb-Roasted Chicken

Herbed-Roasted-Chicken Herb-Roasted ChickenI just love this recipe!  It’s amazingly simple and tastes spectacular!  You can even prepare the chicken ahead of time and then toss it in the oven when you get home from work or practice.  Although I have to admit I haven’t tried doing it that way.  Be sure and let it rest at least ten minutes so that the juices will soak into everything.  I typically toss in vegetables to roast while it is resting to complete the meal.  We’ve had no complaints from children or adults and that in itself is a small miracle.  The kids didn’t even demand ketchup!  Also, it’s healthy so it’s a total win in my book!  After a few people said that they are totally difficult I really had to try it and attempt to prove them wrong, I think I did a decent job.

  • 1 3-31/2 pound whole broiler-fryer chicken
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed

 

  1. rinse inside of chicken; pat dry with paper towels. Skewer neck skin of chicken to back; tie legs to tail. Twist wing tips under back. Place chicken, breast side up, on a rack in shallow roasting pan. Brush with melted butter; rub garlic over chicken.
  2. In a small bowl stir togerher basil, salt, sage, thyme, and lemon-pepper seasoning; rub onto chicken. If desired insert a meat thermometer into center of inside thigh muscle, not touching bone.
  3. Roast, uncovered, in a 375 degree oven for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours or until drumsticks move easily in their sockets and chicken is no longer pink. Remove chicken from oven. Cover; let stand for 10 minutes before carving.

I would love to hear your thoughts, additions and changes!  I know that we are all always seeking improvement in our cooking and to make dinner even better!  I have a slightly different Herb Roasted Chicken Recipe that’s also amazing, I’m not sure which one I love more.
