Chicken and Rice

Earlier this week I made up a chicken and rice recipe. Surprisingly, it actually turned out really well! I forgot to take pictures of the finished product :/. Here are some of the ingredients, though:

Dirt Cake



This was delicious! I made it for a Christmas party we had (Yes, I know, I’m a little late posting this :/).

Anyway, I followed this recipe (I also copied it below), but did not add the gummy worms or chocolate rocks. Instead, I put red and green M&Ms on top.

Linen Organization

Our linen closet has been a mess for quite a while now. It houses all our extra sheets, pillow cases, blankets, towels, and random household items like pillows, light bulbs, toilet paper, paper towels, games, etc. The unorganized sheets were bothering me the most.

While trying to decide how to organize the closet, I remembered there was a box tucked away in our basement, labeled “plastic zipper bags.” This was just what I needed to organize our sheets (sometimes it pays to be a bit of a pack rat :)).

Now, every sheet set and pillow case has a labeled home. I also need to label the sides so I can easily see what’s in each bag without pulling it off the shelf. I’ll do that one of these days. I’d also like to make the labels a little more stylish – I’ll do that one of these days, too.

Oh, I also put a nail in the closet to hold our floor cleaner (you can see that in the first picture). That worked out well.

I didn’t think to take a before picture, but here’s the after:DSC01043



























How have you organized your closets?
