It’s been a while since I have done a post on my pinterest accomplishments and failures, so here ya go!
First off, a fail! Woohoo! I tried this…
You know how you buy a bunch of green onions because they come in a bundle at the store? And then you only need 2 of them? And then the rest go bad before you use them? And as soon as you throw them out you say, “damn it, I need 1 tablespoon green onion for this meal!” Yeah, me to. So I saw on pinterest that you can just plunk the left over onions in a glass of water and they keep growing. Awesomely enough, they do keep growing! Not awesomely enough, after a while the roots get moldy. And I don’t think you should eat moldy root green onions. Even in a pinch. So I tossed them in the trash. Along with the glass they had been growing in…because that was nasty to. But as I was typing this, I actually read the original source of this green onion trick, and it does say to periodically take them out and rinse the roots…whoops, my bad. Maybe I should have read the directions first.
The next failure…
Cute huh? It seemed so easy. For the record, mine was not a circle. the ornaments looked horribly jumbled. I tried the glue and everything. Instead I wound up with lots and lots of dollar store ornaments that I have no idea what to do with. And a bent wire hanger.
And here is a pinterest success!
Yeah, no real talent goes into this, there isn’t even a link to an original source (I swear I am not stealing this idea as my own). But, this has come in handy when HJ has medication! Just check off when you give it to him and then I don’t sit there and think, “have I already given him that this morning?” Especially if your child loves medication and requests it all the time like mine does.
I had a friend over for dinner a while back and made this
Chipotle Chicken Taco Salad! It was yummy, the only thing is it was a bit time-consuming to make, lots of chopping! This would be good for a ladies luncheon though. I am not a lady who lunches though, so maybe for one of you classy people. Also, it made a lot. If it is just for 2 people, cut it in half…and leave the dressing off. That way, you can just put the dressing on as you need it and you don’t end up with leftover soggy salad. No one likes soggy salad.
Then there was this…
Holy yum. This cookie dough dip was freaking fabulous. I am sure it is low in calories too, ha. I served it with cinnamon graham crackers. It is a bit rich, but that just means you won’t consume the whole bowl in one sitting. That is probably a good thing.
And another “sort of” failure…
I always have something explode on an airplane, so I followed this travel rule. And wouldn’t you know, it worked! However I forgot to do it to one item. And guess what? It exploded.
I have lots more to come! What pinterest wins/losses have you had lately?
