“I just got the pressure washer delivered today. Assembly, if you can call it that, was minimal. Just attach the spray hose to the wand and to the unit, fill the crankcase with supplied oil, attach upper frame assembly (no tools required), attach water supply hose and fill with gas. The motor started on the first pull.”

PORTABILITY

The Generac 5991 is designed with a perfectly balanced placement of its engine and pump directly over the axles and oversized wheels allowing for superior manoeuvrability over all kinds of terrain.

“The washer is easy to move, with the pump and engine well balanced over the wheels.”

FUEL EFFICIENT

The OHV horizontal shaft motor in the Generac 5991 3000 psi is a 212cc engine that produces power while minimizing fuel consumption. Time to cut down on all those last minute trips to the gas station!

“The good news is that it runs 90 minutes without refilling the gas tank.”

The Generac 5991 pressure washer is an extremely powerful washer for an excellent price.

 With its easy to start Honda engine, 10 inch pneumatic tires, ergonomic handle and compact size this unit is incredibly easy to use for the average home owner.

PRICE

Choosing the Right Backpacking Camping Equipment

Backpacking is a wonderful experience and increasingly a popular way to see the world. Backpackers generally try to keep costs at a minimum and camping is a great way to do that. Once you have all the backpacking camping equipment that you need you can pitch your tent for free or for very little money in various scenic spots.

You have the advantage of keeping your costs to a minimum and being close to nature. When you are selecting backpacking camping equipment there are a few things that you should look out for. The most important feature of backpacking camping equipment is how light it is.

Quality and Weight

When you are choosing backpacking camping equipment you need to make sure that you can carry it long distances. This means that anything that is too heavy or bulky is out of the question. When choosing a tent it needs to be lightweight enough that you are not going to feel like you want to keel over after carrying it for a few miles.

The bigger your tent is the heavier it is going to be so factor that in. the tent you choose should also be sturdy. You don’t want it falling apart in a storm or blowing over in windy conditions. Look for seam sealing in your tent as this will keep out condensation and keep your tent waterproof. If you are using your backpacking camping equipment in an area that has heavy rains or snow look for a tent with poles that are set up from the inside.

When looking at sleeping bags you need to think about what type of weather you will be camping in. some sleeping bags are meant specifically for camping in cold weather. These sleeping bags are suitable for trips in milder climates. However something that is only meant for temperate or mild climates probably won’t do the job in extreme weather. You will find yourself feeling very uncomfortable and will probably need to put on all your layers to keep warm.

When looking at backpacking camping equipment like stoves you need to make sure that the equipment is durable. A stove that will only sit on a flat surface is no good when you’re out camping when wind and uneven surfaces pose problems. You also need a stove that is easily refueled. Stoves that run on only a specific type of fuel can be hard to refuel when you are far away from home. Find something that will run on just about any fuel.

Best Recliners for Heavy People

When a person is either tall or heavy or both, it is difficult to find a suitable, comfortable chair that fits a large body size. However, there are some recliners on the market that will fit extra tall and plus sized people just fine.

PARMESAN CHEESE CRUMBLED MUSSELS

Parmesan cheese crumbled mussels is a recipe I’ve imagined because I had to staple up a good meal for unexpected guests.

No time to go to local store, I had to deal with what I had in stock to prepare this great meal.

I had a large piece of Parmesan cheese (Thanks to a jaunt to the Italian San Remo market!), and Parmesan cheese gave me much inspiration as I decided Parmesan cheese would be the theme of this meal, and particularly Parmesan cheese crumble. This cheesy crumble is really worth the trip and so fun!
It’s quick to do and goes well with any ingredient.

Regarding the starter, I’ve combined mussels with tomatoes, onion, basil and olive oil and topped the mixture with a Parmesan cheese crumble…

I’ve arranged this hot starter with a green salad and the starter was ready!
This flavors combination is really great, tasteful and just delicious!

Mussels with Parmesan cheese crumble can be served with green salad as a starter. You’ll get the contrast between the cold green salad and the warm Parmesan cheese crumbled mussels.

But you can also serve it as a smart appetizer in individual ramekins or in French verse (small glass jars) with a glass of rosé wine :)
I’ve used ready cooked frozen mussels for this recipe.

You can imagine other versions and change mussels for tuna, sardine or small shrimps. They will also perfectly match with Parmesan cheese crumble!

RED CABBAGE SOUP RECIPE

Springy evenings are not so hot and it’s pleasant to have a soup on some of these evening meals.

May be it’s just because of its incredible color but red cabbage soup is my traditional soup for some of my springy diners…

Anyway, red cabbage is big enough to allow both and soup.

Red cabbage soup is not usual by us and it’s so unusual that people are always amazed each time I say I cook the red cabbage soup.

What? You cook soup with red cabbage? I thought red cabbage was to be used for a salad!

That’s a French reality: Most of people eat red cabbage raw and don’t even know it’s possible to cook it, whether for a red cabbage soup or for a garnishing to serve with meat.

Every one enjoys the crunchy of a raw but though red cabbage texture and taste change after it’s cooked, it’s also delicious!I don’t know about the usual way worldwide people eat their red cabbage, if they most often cook it or if they most often eat it raw, the only thing I know is that red cabbage is edible in both ways!

I often sprinkle some seeds or wheat germs, bean sprouts or oatmeals on my bowl of red cabbage soup to give it a nice look, but that’s optional!

This red cabbage soup recipe is suitable for vegan.
Red cabbage soup is ready within an hour.
