Spring Cleaning #2

Second round! Our ratty old IKEA couch that had been sitting on the landing was first to go. It was taking up space and was an eyesore that the cat had used as a scratching post. It had served its purpose well for over six years but it was time to go. We packed upContinue reading “Spring Cleaning #2”

Easy Leftover Stir-Fry

Do you have leftover meats/proteins? Vegetables that may start to turn? Cooked rice that’s just been sitting in the fridge? Make a stir-fry! I love stir-fries. I probably make at least one every two weeks. They’re easy and you can throw in basically anything that you want. I usually look for leftover vegetables that willContinue reading “Easy Leftover Stir-Fry”

Easy French Ratatouille

The Hubby and I have been binge watching Hell’s Kitchen. You know, the tv show where Gordon Ramsey yells at everyone ( just kidding he does in all his shows)? While we were watching, ratatouille was mentioned and Sam ( the hubs) asked what it was. I said vegetables and he thought I mean aContinue reading “Easy French Ratatouille”

Jab # 1 (COVID Vaccine)

Woot woot! Here in Texas, phase 2 which is the general population for the COVID vaccine, opened up. The exact date was March 29. A very exciting day! I made sure to go online that night and check all of the possible places I could make an appointment. Naturally everyone was doing the same thing!Continue reading “Jab # 1 (COVID Vaccine)”

Spring Cleaning

The hubby and I decided to do a little spring cleaning the other day. And by that, I mean get rid of junk! We cleaned out the attic a bit, pulling down things we haven’t used in several years. A whole set of plate-ware we haven’t touched, old hats, a cat-scratched ottoman and more. ItContinue reading “Spring Cleaning”

Hello, Hello Fresh!

Sam (the hubby) has been wanting to try Hello Fresh for a while. My In-laws and Sister-in law all order Hello Fresh and love it! They often sing it’s praises. Since there is a special for first timers, we thought we would try a week. We have only tried the first meal so far andContinue reading “Hello, Hello Fresh!”

Goat Cheese and Spinach Quiche

The other day I decided to try a quiche. We eat a lot of eggs in our house so I thought we would change it up a little this time. I took a recipe from GarlicandZest.com and lightened it up a little bit. Where it called for milk, I used skim, where it called forContinue reading “Goat Cheese and Spinach Quiche”

Body Soreness

You might say that feeling sore is a bad thing, but in this case I consider it to be positive. I’ve been continuing to follow the “Team Body Project” workout videos on YouTube, doing them approximately every other day. Most of the time I work up a sweat, but this video really made me work!Continue reading “Body Soreness”

A ( Healthier) Pizza

Sometimes we all just crave something comforting and delicious. Maybe you eat it once a week or on special occasions. Maybe it’s your comfort food after a stressful day. Maybe you eat it whenever the craving strikes. Pizza. It’s delicious and gooey and warm but soooo not good for you. As someone who is tryingContinue reading “A ( Healthier) Pizza”

A toilet paper roll has a second life

Toilet paper rolls . Disposable. Recyclable. Telescopes for kids. And… charitable donations for animals? Yup! I was on the Nextdoor app one day when I saw a volunteer at the local animal shelter requested empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls. Why? Apparently they get filled with treats and become toys for the dogs andContinue reading “A toilet paper roll has a second life”
