St Patrickโ€™s Day & Spring

I noticed, as I’m walking my dog around our neighborhood, that a majority of houses have wreaths on their front door. A wreath for every season.

I decided to make one. With a help of a video on YouTube, I did just that.

Materials needed: green tube ring, burlap ribbon, green plastic flowers and butterflies. All these were purchased at the dollar store.



DIY Message Board

Materials needed: cardboard or hard foam board, material (longer than the board on all corners) and packing tape.

Lay material design faced down. Then lay board on top. Tape the material over.

Turn it over when done and you have a message board! Simple and easy….

Chicken Paprikash

Ingredients: 4 chicken breasts with skin, paprika, red pepper flakes, mushrooms, scallions, sour cream, salt and garlic

In a Dutch oven, cook for 45 minutes and turnover halfway through.

Tasted delicious!


Curried Beef Kebabs

Ingredients: beef sirloin, scallions, curry powder, salt, garlic (minced) and canola oil.

Mix all in a bowl. Putting the meat and scallions on the skewers is time consuming. Curry makes your fingers yellow and the smell tends to linger. I made sure to wash my hands thoroughly.

I used this portable grill and depending on the cut of the meat, I had thin sliced beef and folded it, to make it thick to go through the skewers. Next time I’ll use thicker cut beef. I turned it over every minute until it was the way I wanted it cooked.


The End of the F***ing World

Netflix original tv series.

Plot: James is 17 and is pretty sure he is a psychopath. Alyssa, also 17 is a cool and moody new girl at school. The pair make a connection and she persuades him to embark on a road trip in search of her real father.

There is only 8 episodes and each episode is about 30 minutes. Hubby and I were able to see all of them in one night.

It’s your basic movie about life as a teenager. Peer pressure, having a dad who is a single father, mom who remarries and has twins, runaways, murder and a cliff hanger ending.

I enjoyed the movie and the actors playing James and Alyssa were perfect for their roles. Hubby heard great reviews and suggested to watch it. I have to give kudos to Netflix for a job well done.

Some people may have different opinions but it doesn’t hurt to give it a watch.

I give it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.


Cool Coasters

I saw an advertisement from Michaels regarding oven clay coasters.

I made a few of them at home and they came out nicely!


Bacon Wrapped Chicken Thighs

I had skinless thighs and saw a recipe for them wrapped in bacon.

Very simple and easy. Besides the bacon and thighs, salt and pepper is required.

Season the thighs, depending on the size of thighs, wrap in one or two bacon slices. Put on a cookie sheet with foil and sprayed with cooking spray.

Cook for 20 minutes, turn over and cook for 20 minutes, then turn over and cook one more time for 20 minutes. Bacon should be crispy.

My first time cooking this and it was delicious. I made homemade thousand island dressing and spread it on top.
