Cilantro Lemon Vinaigrette

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
1/2 Lemon
1 tsp Honey
1/4 tsp Salt
Oils & Vinegars
2 tbsp Champagne or red wine vinegar
1/3 cup Olive oil

Organized Desk Space

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?
