Thanks to my wife’s newfound obsession with Pinterest, my family has been enjoying a slew of delicious new recipes that are keeping the entire family happy. In fact, like many women, my wife’s now using Pinterest to plan birthday parties. Our youngest daughter recently celebrated her 1st birthday. We (and by we, I mean my wife) planned a “Pinterest Party.” Almost every detail of the party was found on Pinterest, and it was a big success. Check out this delicious recipe that will make your party a success too!

Thanks to Cake And Allie For this delicious recipe!

Southwestern Eggrolls

These delicious treats helped make our party a success!

Southwestern Egg Rolls with Avocado Ranch:

What you’ll need for the egg rolls:

  • 2 cups frozen corn, thawed,
  • 1- 15 ounce can of black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1- 9 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry with paper towel
  • 2 cups shredded mexican cheese
  • 1- 7 ounce can diced green chiles, drained
  • 4 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 package of egg roll wrappers

Preheat oven to 425. Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.

In a large bowl mix corn, beans, spinach, cheese, chile, onion, cumin, chili powder, salt, and cayenne pepper. Scoop a small amount of filling onto the wrapper. Starting at the corner, carefully start to roll the wrapper. When it’s slightly rolled, tuck in the two sides and continue rolling to the last point. Wet your finger with water and dab a bit on the corner to seal the egg roll. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling, placing them slightly apart on the baking sheet.

Lightly spray the tops of the egg rolls with cooking spray and bake for 15 minutes, flipping them at least once during baking.

What you’ll need for the avocado ranch:

  • 3/8 cup mayonnaise
  • 3/8 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 green onion, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted

Place all ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth. Use immediately.

This recipe helped make our party a success, and can help make yours a success too! Of course, if you’re wanting a great inflatable rental to go with your party, check out All American Inflatables.

11 years ago to the day, almost to the minute, I remember waking up and getting ready to head off to school. My wife and I had a 2-year-old son and a 2 month old daughter. We don’t normally turn on the television in the morning, but for some reason my wife turned on NBC as she was feeding our daughter. She stopped me in my tracks and ¬†told me I had to watch. As I watched, the second plane flew into the Twin Tower. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Although the media was saying that there was no indication of what had happened, it was clear to my wife and I that we had been the victims of a terrorist attack.

September 11, 2001

September 11, 2001

I decided I still needed to go to school, but nobody could focus. School was cancelled, and everyone was sent home. I remember being glued to the television along with the entire country. Wherever I went, people were watching television. Even at work.

Like many people, I didn’t know anyone directly related to the nightmare of September 11, 2001, although I had heard of people who knew people. But, like so many other people, it didn’t matter. The attacks of September 11, 2011 affected me halfway across the country, just like so many millions of others.

Today as we honor yet another anniversary, I am shocked to think that it’s already been 11 years. My daughter is now 11, and my son is now 13. Life has gone on, but I remember that day so vividly.

Today, as I remember the horrors of 9-11, I am extremely thankful to the men and women of our armed services as well as the police and fire fighters that put their lives on the line for my freedoms every day.

You just can’t go wrong with an inflatable party rental. Whether you rent a bounce house, a water slide, or anything in between, you and your guests will have a great time. But if you’re looking for a way to take your birthday party, church carnival, or school festival to the next level, consider renting a combo unit.

Elephant Combo Unit

All American Inflatables Unique Elephant Combo Unit

Combo units are large inflatable units that consist of both a bouncing surface as well as a slide. They usually cost a bit more than an ordinary bounce house, but can actually cost less than a slide. Kids love them because when they’re tired of one activity, they can move to the next. All American Inflatables has a large selection of unique combo units to choose from. Whether you’re wanting to rent a Spiderman unit for your action-packed-web-slinging-maniac, or an elephant-shaped combo unit for your little adventurer, we have the selection that you’re looking for.

Things to consider when renting a combo unit:

1) They’re larger than ordinary bounce houses. If the party is in a back yard, make sure that the delivery personnel has access to the back yard. Lifting over 500 pounds of vinyl over a wall isn’t fun, and most companies won’t do it.

2) As I mentioned earlier, they cost a bit more to rent because they cost a bit more to buy. However, because they cost a bit more to buy, many smaller companies can’t afford to buy combo units and add them to their inventory.

3) Some combo units can be used with water slides. Kids love the added excitement of slipping and sliding all over the jumping surface.

4) If you rent a water combo unit, you may want to consider putting a tarp down to protect your grass from getting trampled and turned to mud.

5) Have fun! Combo unit rentals are extremely popular because they’re a blast. Everyone will have a great time, so be prepared to have fun year after year!

So what are you waiting for? Get out there and rent that combo unit before someone else steels all the fun from your party!

It’s HOT in Fort Worth. Sometimes, it’s too hot to even enjoy being outside. Did you know that July is the hottest month of the year? That’s why, when you’re planning a party in Fort Worth (or anywhere for that matter), sometimes an ordinary bounce house just won’t do. If you’re looking for a great way to enjoy an afternoon in the Texas heat, think about renting a water slide.

The vinyl used to make bounce houses and water slides can get hot during the summer. The water used on a water slide rental is the perfect way to keep the material cool, while providing a great time. to you and your guests. Water slide rentals offer you and your guests with hours of heat-beating water fun.

Ocean Splash Water Slide

A Water Slide Rental Is A Great Way To Beat The Summer Heat

Remember running and jumping onto a Slip n’ Slide as a child? Although it was fun as a child, as adults, it’s not easy (or fun) to do a belly flop onto the hard ground. Like everything else, technology has advanced the world of water fun. We now rent inflatable Slip n’ Slides that allow you to run and jump onto a soft, inflatable surface, instead of the ground. The technology allows both kids and adults to have a great time on a long-forgotten childhood treasure. So, whether you rent a giant inflatable slide, or a slip n’ slide, rest assured that you and your guests will have a great time! With a large selection of water slides to choose from, the choice is yours.

Of course, if you’re in or around Fort Worth, we recommend that you check out All American Inflatables. However, there are many great companies across the country that have great water slide rentals to choose from. So, if you’re looking to beat the heat this summer, look no further than a water slide rental!

 

 

 

Backyard Obstacle Course

The Backyard Obstacle Course

Hello blogging world! Every day, thousands of people begin to blog for various reasons. Some want to share their personal lives, others want to help their business succeed. Our goal is to give you the best of both worlds.

For years, All American Inflatables has been providing Fort Worth residents with the area’s finest bounce house and water slide rentals. We have always gone above and beyond to give our customers the best customer service around. Now, we thought we’d try our hand at blogging.

Our goal is not to bore you with constant advertisements telling you to check out this great deal, or that. Instead, our goal is to promote our brand awareness by posting interesting blogs that our potential customers will enjoy reading week after week. Very bluntly, our goal is to keep our company’s brand at the front of our customers minds by giving our readers a reason to remember us.

Let’s face it, unless you’re a family member or a close friend, the chances are high that you’re not going to remember the name of the bounce house company that you rented from last year. So, when it’s time to plan your next party, and someone asks “who did we rent a bounce house from last year?”, you can now say “it’s All American Inflatables. They’re the ones that post those awesome blogs!” Okay, maybe you won’t be that excited, but that’s the goal at least.

So, whether you’re in or around Fort Worth or not, that’s okay. We don’t ask for anything other than hopefully a good following. If you’re interested in what we have to say, let us know. Like our blogs, comment on our blogs, and if we write something that’s worthy of sharing, we would ask that you re-post our blogs and share it with other readers.

Thanks for joining us on this journey. Until next time…
