Team & Club Rewards to Spokane Humane Society - January 13, 2014
We want to give a HUGE THANKS to our customer Mark H. for donating his Team & Club Rewards to the Spokane Humane Society! Thank you for supporting such a great local organization!!
The Spokane Humane Society is a local non-profit public charity dedicated to the welfare of companion animals. Since 1897, we have acted as a refuge for animals in peril by providing care, shelter, and placement for tens of thousands of lost, neglected, and unwanted animals in the greater Spokane area. The number of animals we serve has varied over the years based upon our mission and role as animal control or in our current role as a companion animal adoption shelter.
Mark was able to donate a Team & Club Rewards through the purchase of his new Free Flow Aptos hot tub. This hot tub was perfect with the plug and play electrical set up and the durable construction!

Pool World wants to give a big thanks to Lewis & Janice R. for selecting Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation as the organization to receive a $100 Donation!! Thank you Lewis & Janice!!
The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation is a non-profit organization that is volunteer-driven that is dedicated to finding cures for Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. They have been around since 1967 when founded by Irwin M and Suzanne Rosenthal, William D. and Shelby Modell, and Henry D Janowitz, M.D.
Today, they help fund cutting-edge technology and research studies that are apart of major medical institutions. They provide this funding and assistance because they want to improve the quality of life of children and adults living with both diseases.
Lewis and Janice were able to make this donation possible through their purchase of a Hot Spring Hot Spot Tx hot tub. This hot tub is perfect for two adults who want to enjoy a moment of relaxation. A few upgrades were also added to this little tub for two including a SilentFlo 5000 circulation pump to ensure clean clear sparkling water, a Leisure Concepts Cover Mate Easy, Ozone and Silk Balance Water Care.

National Soup Month! - January 09, 2014
It’s National Soup Month in January! During January it’s normally cold here in the Inland Northwest but we have had warmer days then our normal winter forecast but it doesn’t mean that a cup or bowl of hot soup won’t take the chill away. This is time of year is the ideal time to practice your soup-making skills.
Everyone enjoys a warm bowl of soup, from thick, creamy, calorie laden soup, to water-based and healthier broth and even a vegetable chili. It doesn’t matter where you are at in the world; every country has its own recipes and traditions.
Here’s a recipe that every grill master should try! Yes, you can make one mean Tomato Soup using your grill! Your grill will be your secret ingredient, the grill will help add an abundance of flavor instead of blanching them in boil water.
Grilled Tomato Soup
3 pounds ripe tomatoes
1 cup fresh basil leaves
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1 clove garlic, minced
1 shallot, chopped
1 dash Worcestershire sauce
1 dash Tabasco
Clean and preheat your grill. Your cooking surface needs to be really clean.
Combine olive oil with salt and pepper. Cut the tomatoes in half and lightly brush the cut sides with the olive oil. Reserve the remaining olive oil for later. Place the tomatoes cut side down on a medium hot grill. Close lid and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove tomatoes from grill when they are browned and skin is loosened. Set aside to cool. When the tomatoes are cool enough to work with, remove the skins and seeds.
Place in a blender or food processor with reserved olive oil and remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth.
This soup may be served hot or chilled. If you choose to serve this soup chilled, place it into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. The flavors will blend over time so overnight is better. If you want to serve the soup hot, transfer it to a large sauce pan and bring to a light boil. Serve immediately.
Just imagine what different flavors could be achieved with this recipe when cooked on a variety of grills. Here at Pool World, we carry Big Green Egg, Weber, Traeger and Louisiana and for more information on these, please visit our Barbecue/Grills
