I spend my days graphic designing for my day job, (mostly professional-type business materials) so I love to design something girly and fun. It’s refreshing to use the colors & fonts I like and not worry about a client…so here’s something I just designed for fun. “Do small things with great love.” Download it, print it, hang it. Save the wallpaper as your desktop on your computer. Enjoy!
What’s For Dinner is a weekly post that highlights the best & worst recipes I made for dinner over the last week.
Best things I made:
Korean Barbecue Flank Steak from Rachael Ray – It was super yummy – we had a lot of flank steak and I wasn’t sure what else to do with it besides fajitas or Steak Sandwiches. This was a really good marinade! A bit too spicy for my toddler, but just right for my husband and I.
Grilled Chicken with Lemon Basil Pasta from The Pioneer Woman – I was so excited to find basil at the store after 6 months of living here in Mexico. I jumped on the Pioneer Woman’s website and searched for anything with basil. Oh my goodness. This was so incredibly good. I didn’t make a whole lot because my husband and I are dieting and we are trying to control our portions. My husband said he had to leave the room or he was going to finish off the pan and lick it clean. It was that good.
Warm Chicken Ginger Salad – I got this off of the Slim Fast website, so my expectations were not very high. I have to say, it was actually really good. The salad itself wasn’t too exciting, but the dressing was delicious. I’d definitely make the dressing again and throw it on my own salad. I rarely make salads for dinner and my husband’s comment was, “If this didn’t have chicken in it, I’d probably die.” Can you tell we are not good dieters?
Worst thing I made:
Steamed Asparagus…I usually don’t mind frozen asparagus, but I also usually throw parmesan cheese and olive oil on it. I was try to be healtheir so I steamed it. Bleh. It was tough and bland and plain ol’ gross.
I’m Paige – a graphic designer and eternal do-it-yourselfer. I love to find ways to make things myself for cheap and make them look good. There is no better feeling in the world than telling someone how much something cost me and seeing the shock on their face. I love coffee, traveling, cooking shows, thrift stores & reading.
