So….I’m a little bit addicted to Pinterest. If you don’t know what it is, don’t bother going over and looking because you’ll end up sitting at your computer for an hour PINNING ALL THE THINGS! If you want to tak the risk, go forth and get your pin on. You can find my boards here.
I’ve gone a little crazy making boards, pinning everything I could get my mouse on. However, I did end up doing a couple projects and making some recipies and that is what I want to share with yall today!
First up, I found this great cleaning calendar on Pinterest from TipsandPix.com. What I liked best about it, was that it was super simply and straight forward. I tweeked it to the things I need to clean in my house. I have it hanging in the kitchen so I know exactly what needs to be cleaned each day. Its helpful for setting up great daily cleaning habits!
I have this homemade citrus cleaner ‘cooking’ right now. Its been sitting for about 7 days now, I can’t wait to try it out! I bought Aiden his own special spray bottle and he is going to be in charge of cleaning the table before and after dinner now.
Spring Clean Your Mattress! I saw this pin and couldn’t wait to try it. It was so incredibly easy to put together. I did my mattress, and the futon so far. I’ll be doing the kid’s beds this weekend. Just sprinkle it on, let sit for an hour or so and vacuum up! Easy!
I admit that I haven’t been the most diligent about washing fruit right when I get it. But I saw this Fruit & Veggie Wash on Pinterest and had to try it. I was SO amazed that after 20 mins of soaking my apples and grapes in the mixture how dirty the water was. I feel really good about washing my fruit this way, and its super simple as well. I rinsed the fruit and tried a grape right after and there was no taste or smell of vinegar. You must try it!
Last but not least, I am going to be making this Homemade Coconut Milk Shampoo today for the kids today. On tap this weekend is some homemade liquid soap!
As far as recipes go on Pinterest, I’ve made a couple things so far.
Grilled Shrimp and Lobster Gremolata
I made lemon ice cubes last night, I’m sipping on some water with my lemon ice in it right now. Very very refreshing in this hot weather.
I’ve also made a couple crock pot dinner with chicken, potatoes and carrots and then last night I made a coconut milk and chili chicken for tacos. All inspired by pins I’ve seen on Pinterest.
I have a few dinners lined up this week and next week:
Wednesday dinner: Mushroom Pizza Bites with sauteed sugar snap peas.
Thursday dinner: Chicken and Dumplings with some sort of salad.
Friday dinner: Slow Low Country Boil with green chili cornbread.
Saturday lunch: Blue Cheese and Bacon Cheese Burgers with Carrot and Zucchini Fries
Sunday dinner: Grilled Chicken with Fresh Cherry Sauce and Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms, Balsamic and Parm.
Monday dinner: Salmon Burgers with Fruit Salad (I may or may not make my own buns!)
Filling out the rest of next week with White bean and chicken chili with corn on the cob and pickles, pumpkin and chicken enchiladas with savory mexican slaw, Sausage & Peppers with Cauliflower Rice, and of course tacos on Tuesday, I’m thinking simple Tilapia ones with a batch of colachi.
Oh I also did this to my fridge. Even though I don’t have the fancy clear containers, I used the colored ones from the kid’s old toy rack and it worked perfectly! Today I am going to create labels for the bins so I know exactly what is inside.
But yep! I’m totally inspired by that place, but I warn you, its very very addictive! Hopefully you too can find some inspiration in some of the things I’ve done the past couple weeks. I’d love to know what projects you get into!
