Hi! I'm back to bring you up-to-date on my adventures! :) I've been busy this week. I've made all kinds of new things from food to another mini-album! I LOVE being creative!!!
First of all, I joined 30 days of Lists! It is too late to join now, but in case you are curious, visit their website: http://30daysoflists.com/ Daily, they post prompts, and the partipants make lists from that prompt! I am an avid list maker. It is the only way I can get things done! I had to join this. For this project, I created a small mini-album to house the lists I make.
I used up some of my old/hoarded supplies. I wanted to use some of my favorite patterned papers, so I could enjoy them instead of keeping them hidden in my closet! For the cover, I used supplies mostly from Studio Calico's Summer of '69 kit add-on called Six String. I had a blast making the cover! Plus, I discovered that Scrapbooking Flair is AWESOME! I'm so in love. I've even found some on Etsy, that I really want to purchase! (Check out AFlairforButtons on Etsy!)At home, it is just my husband and myself along with three crazy dogs. I usually make dinner because I'm home earlier. Well, I get tired of the 'same old thing', so I get new recipes off Pinterest. You can follow me here if you need some ideas! I have so many recipes to try, so I experiement with a few a week when we can afford it! This week I tried two receipes: Swiss Mushroom Bacon Meatloaf and Pepperjack and Spinach stuffed Cajun Chicken Breasts!
The Swiss Mushroom Bacon Meatloaf was AMAZING!
I am NOT a big meatloaf fan, but mu husband is! I usually just make it for him with the McCormick's seasoning packet. However, when I saw this recipe, I knew we had to try it. How can you go wrong with Swiss cheese, bacon, and mushrooms??? It was the BEST. MEATLOAF. EVER!!!!! I'm not lying! Try it and see. I don't think I will ever make any other meatloaf EVER again!
The Pepperjack and Spinach stuffed Cajun Chicken breasts were quite good, too! They were a pill to put together, but otherwise, very tasty!!
Try them and see! They were worth it! We had them with rice pilaf and carrots.
One more thing: Today, being September 1 (can you believe it??), kicked off the 30 Days of Lists. The prompted was "I am a lister because. . ." I shortened it to "I am a lister. . ." Here is my page (through an Instagram filter!):
