We were treated to a quick lesson in the restaurant’s kitchen on how to to make Roasted Pumpkin Soup by Peter Davis, the Executive Chef at Henrietta’s Table.
Here are some photos of the restaurant and from the kitchen as the Chef walked us through the preparation of the soup.
While we were enjoying our delicious lunch, we got to learn more about the brand new Braun No Touch + Forehead Thermometer and also to hear about recent upgrades to the Braun ThermoScan Ear Thermometer.
This no-touch thermometer is seriously mom’s best friend. I have been using a thermometer that required just a short touch to the temple. Even though it’s short, those moments feel like minutes when I’m trying to get my little guy to just HOLD STILL already. Even when he’s not feeling great, he’s giving me a run for my money.
The no-touch thermometer is literally that. No touch. And QUICK. Readings in less than 2 seconds. So, after your kids are in bed curled up in their fleece blankets and asleep, you can sneak in for a temperature reading. There’s a back-lit easy to read screen, an option for mute, and a guidance light so that you are sure that you are aiming the thermometer in just the right place on the forehead. Plus the results are color coded – green, yellow, and red – helping you know right away whether or not your children have a fever.
I’m trying to really plan and be ready for cold and flu season this year by stocking up on all the supplies. No late night trips to the drugstores is my resolution! I think this Braun no touch forehead thermometer should be in everyone’s sicktime arsenal.
Retail price is about $60. It takes AA batteries (Can I get a Hallelujah?!? No crazy search for weird button batteries!). And it’s available at Walgreens, Babies “R” Us, Amazon, and other major retailers.
If you’re in Boston, stop by and get your temperature taken at one of the Braun Mobile tour stop. For every temperature taken with the new Braun No touch + forehead thermometer OR the Braun ThermoScan ear thermometer, Braun will donate the dollar equivalent to the Boston Children’s Hospital (so if your temp is a normal 98.6 degrees F, that’ll be rounded up to $1).
