How was your weekend? I had a good one by my standards. I didn’t have anything planned and had a lot of time to spend just doing the things I love doing. This is where I need to give a big thank you on here to my husband who sent me off to Barnes & Noble on Saturday morning so that he could vacuum and dust the house (stay away ladies, he’s mine J ). I have been having trouble with hives popping up, which happens every year at the beginning of allergy season, and he’s being diligent about keeping things in the house as allergy free as possible.
On Sunday I spent a good portion of the day playing in my studio. I made several Easter cards and plan to spend some time tonight making the rest of the ones I need for family. Nothing like waiting until the last minute huh? I think I mentioned that my husband gave me a Cricut for my birthday. I had so much fun just experimenting with it. I cut out way too many Easter bunnies, my family better watch out for bunny confetti in their cards. I did realize that I need to get more storage for the things I cut that I don’t use right away otherwise the piles on my work surfaces are going to get high. I did see something on Pinterest over the weekend (that I pinned, of course) about how to deal with all of the scraps that result from paper crafting. The best part of working in my studio? Time passes and I don’t even notice it. I went in there around 11 and didn’t look up until 3:30 when my husband suggested maybe we should have some lunch (or, at that time, early dinner). It is good for my spirit to be creative and lose track of time, a great stress-reliever!
I did finally make the chicken and veggie enchiladas on Saturday, they turned out really good. I think the only adjustment I made to the original recipe I posted was to add some chipotle peppers which are my favorite. I used the veggies that were in the fridge; zucchini, red bell pepper, mushrooms, onion and a tomato. I even used the avocado I had and made a little bit of guacamole to go along with it. Yum.
Since I didn’t have one of my recipes to share today I thought I would direct you to a blog that I reference a lot, www.skinnytaste.com. If you are a WW person and haven’t been to this site you need to go, now. She has bunches of recipes for just about everything. You can search by meal, ingredient, WW points values and she even has her GF recipes tagged. It’s a site I go to at least a couple of times a week, I always want to see what’s new. The recipe I found when I went there today sounds amazing and is gluten free, Sweet Potato Tandoori Salad, I can’t wait to try it! Go to her site today if you haven’t already, you will be addicted to it like I am after you do.
I will be travelling for work for the next few days so you may not see a post from me until Friday or Saturday, unless I find a really great GF place to eat in Charlotte that I just have to share. Have a great week!
