What week are we in?

29 May

Ok, so hey there.  I’m back.  What a whirlwind of a month and a half.  I’ve been working more and we’ve been getting outside and enjoying the wonderful sunshine and weather.  I’ve also done quite a few Pinterest projects, but just haven’t wanted to sit down and blog.  Forgive me?

I forgot to take pictures of some stuff, but I hope you enjoy the ones I did take!

For Mother’s Day I also made oven-roasted cauliflower, roasted garlic pasta salad, and rosemary and garlic roasted pork loin.  We feasted for Mother’s Day!

It seems I did more projects, but can’t seem to recall all of them right now.  If I remember, you’ll be the first to know! 😉

I think the tart was our favorite thing this week!  The crust was so yummy and the curd was just right and those strawberries added such a bright flavor.

Pinterest Projects Week 15

15 Apr

Happy tax day everyone!  Ha!

You guys, I had to scrape my windows this morning.  What?!?  It would have been really depressing had the sun not been shining.  It snowed yesterday and actually stuck to the ground by the end of the day.  Bleh.

I didn’t feel good last week, so I didn’t do much of anything.  But Saturday morning I watched Heartland Table over on The Food Network and got inspired.  She was making a good ole fashioned supper club meal.  The hubby and I followed suit and had yummy rib eye steaks, made-from-scratch hashbrowns and corn.  Oh, how yummy it was!

Anywho…here are the projects from Week 15

8 Apr

Ok, so I know I’ve been telling you I’ve been busy.  And you may or may not believe me.  But it’s true.  I’ve been busy.

I finished my graphic design project, I spent a week at my parent’s, we had company here for a couple days and it’s been so nice outside, I’ve been doing some yard work.  So, I haven’t done as many Pinterest projects as I would like.  But here’s the round up from the last 4 weeks.

Final CakeFinal Cake – Inspiration for the cake can be found here.

I had some great help with the cake and frosting!  The company that visited wanted to frost something, so we got out the Pinterest and searched for some inspiration.  I love what we came up with!  It was bright and colorful and the perfect dessert for the beginning of spring.  Thanks Alina and GMF for all your creativity and help!

Pinterest Projects Weeks 8 & 9

10 Mar

Whew…it’s been a busy few weeks.  My aunt was here almost a month ago and we quilted away making awesome sewing machine covers.  Eric and I have been busy with a new church and preparing ourselves for Lent.  My mom was here last week and helped me paint our dining room.  I worked in the camp kitchen this weekend.  And I’ve been doing some graphic design work.

Yep, it’s been busy.  But an oh-so-good kind of busy.

So, here are the projects that got done during weeks 8 & 9:

Not much for two weeks, but at least something!  I’ll probably have only one Pin done for Week 10, but that’s ok.  Remember how busy I was?

Pinterest Projects Week 5

6 Feb

So, there are a few projects from the 5th week of the year.  We were in the middle of getting ready to head to Minnesota for my great grandpa’s funeral, so not a lot got done.  And what did get done, was mostly in preparation for our weekend away.  So, here it is:

Dirty MicrowaveI’m a little embarrassed to be posting this picture of my nasty microwave, but it must be done.  Wait until you see the after picture!

Sparkly MicrowaveTa-Da!!  Hot water and vinegar steam

Lemon Ricotta PancakesLemon Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberry Topping

Yummy BreadYummy Bread

Now, the bread I’ve been making for the past few months, but this is the first time this year.  It is DELICIOUS!  And EASY!  I forgot to take pictures after I made the loaves, but this looks much prettier than just a shot from the top.  I made three different kinds: plain; cranberry, orange, almond; and jalapeno cheese (not pictured).  The jalapeno cheese was a big hit, so I didn’t actually get to bring any home.  Or try it.  It’s ok, I’ve still got jalapenos and cheese…

I also made Sonoma Chicken Salad for our 7 1/2 hour drive to Olivia, MN.  I also forgot to take a picture.  But let me tell you, it was also damn delicious.

I’ve got some really exciting things coming up for this week and I can’t wait to share with you!  So, until next week, Pin away!
