HOW TO MAKE STIR FRY WITH TOFU!

June 25, 2018

IMMEDIATELY I want to say that if you are not a “tofu person” (in some ways, we aren’t “tofu people” and yet I like this) you can promptly do this exactly same recipe with chicken (or any meat). And perhaps you should because you ought to get to still partake and be made happy by this peanut ginger sauce.

But, tofu is attainable and my husband is definitely a has-to-have-meat-to-be-a-meal fellow and he was good with this for a meatless monday vibe. Try it once! See if the tofu world is for you!

THINKING ABOUT THE SUMMER OF 2018

June 21, 2018

This post is part of a series I do to write important things I need to tell you about and a mix of homemaker stuff. And let’s be honest, sometimes popular culture BECAUSE I HAVE THOUGHTS. I love doing things by the seasons, so I share one that often. There are some re-occuring categories such as: “netflix-ing,” “unpopular opinion,” “all is vanity,” “into it!,” and “I am not tech-y, but.”

parties, y’all: I bought this group trivia game for our summer parties. Trivia is SO fun, I wanted a trivia set that was just like, normal trivia, not trivial pursuit weird.

into it!: Also for parties I wanted some drink dispensers that were plastic (for durability) but still pretty. And not expensive. Kind of a lot of demands. I found these and have loved.

for the children: Do you shop for children’s clothes on amazon? I hadn’t done a lot, but they have a lot of good stuff that is low priced and obviously the amazon prime free shipping factor. This and this  (and honestly like a million more things I found) are so like, good stylish children clothes! Rare! And I just got this romper for a friend’s new baby. I like popping in a copy of this book for new parents too.

insta life: v v all about the home renovation progress on this instagram account.

I am not tech-y, but: I got a pop socket because I have small hands and holding an iphone kind of hurts my hand. I’m not sure if it’s really doing anything? It kind of makes my hand just hurt in a different way than before. And now it’s harder to fit in my small purse. Am I missing the pop socket thing?

pretty things: All about finding neutral colored versions of utilitarian things for them to be more pretty. I actually don’t mind the classic green hose because green pretty much always works outdoors. But we got this white garden hose and it is really strong and inexpensive.

OH, MY EYES!: I’m only on the computer for a couple hours a day but I got computer glasses and am really obsessed with them. They make my eyes feel so good when I’m looking at a screen. I did the roebling in “amber toffee.”

films: Infinity Wars was amazing and Solo was very whatever. The actor for Han did not capture his personality at all. Or look like him. So I feel like you should have one or the other?

renovation progress: we’re about to start our DINING ROOM and I will explode. I like getting dining room inspiration from great restaurants. This is one.

netflix-ing: Sad a few of our most beloved children’s shows left netflix with the whole disney thing! We miss Little Einsteins and Agent Oso the most, two of our very favorites. I have been working on a post of our favorite children’s shows on netflix. I am opinionated about it.

Organization Nation: This is very much a it’s-all-in-the-details thing, but I have liked having cute thumbtacks for our bulletin boards.

foodstuff: I love this cookbook! I don’t ever make homemade ice cream, but the (low) price of the book is worth it for just the baked good recipes. Haven’t made a bad one yet. If Jeni does it, it is going to be good.

REALLY GOOD BROWNIES

June 18, 2018

The way I see it, every wife/mom/homemaker is on an ongoing journey to gather her kitchen staple recipes. I’d love to reduce box mixes from my kitchen. Not because I’m elitist and think you’re less of a cook if you use them. (I like them for certain stuff: this insane coconut cake, pumpkin cinnamon rolls, cornbreadcobbler, and the thanksgiving must have – pumpkin crisp).

But, I think baking cakes, cookies, brownies, etc. isn’t necessarily always easier with them. And doing it from scratch can be less expensive.

AND ABOVE ALL, let’s make them taste even better! This is my current brownie dude.
