It’s back to school season and all over there are tips on packing your children’s lunches but don’t forget to pack your lunch, too! Bringing a healthy lunch to work ensures your blood sugar stays even throughout the day (no need to raid the vending machine!), your bank account doesn’t break (cooking healthy food is […]
Thought I’d share a quick recipe post. If you’ve never tried this cilantro lemon vinaigrette I highly recommend you do. I found this easy recipe on Pinterest (or you can go here). Just combine all the ingredients in a blender and hit the button. Blend until smooth and store in refrigerator. That’s it. Easy peasy! Goes great with shrimp tacos or you can use as a salad dressing. My hubby and kids LOVED it! Enjoy!
2 handfuls of Cilantro
2 tsp Garlic
1 tsp Honey
1/4 tsp Salt
Oils & Vinegars
2 tbsp Champagne or red wine vinegar
1/3 cup Olive oil
Thought I’d pop in and share a quick blog post on how I organized my desk last weekend. Unfortunately I didn’t take a “before” picture so you could really see the mess. Previously I had a fold up table I had purchased from Costco many years ago and slid a couple of plastic sterlite drawer organizers with casters underneath it. It worked for several years but then I decided to get a real desk and found this pretty Ikea one on Craigslist for $20. I was shopping at our local antique flea market a couple of months ago and found the perfect bookcase to store all my fabric, books, and craft paper for $30. But I didn’t get it. I thought I could find a cheaper one if I kept looking. Well newsflash..THAT was the cheapest one and when I went back to get it, it was gone. So I went to Joanns and purchased three wood crates and stacked them on top of each other to create that slim book case look I wanted for this corner of the family room next to my desk. It works. And that cute little white mesh three drawer organizer I got from Ikea. Not expensive at all. I do cheap around here can you tell…lol!
In the next picture you’ll see my junk drawer and how everything is in a disarray and just an unorganized mess. If you know me, you know that I do simple and organized around here and try to keep things stored in a way where they are easy to find. I had a few plastic organizers in my garage and some pretty wrapping paper I used to line the drawer with. Doesn’t it look fresh and clean and organized? I’m not a fan of clutter. Can you tell?
