You know me, I love my organizing! I think the garage is pretty much done. I reorganized some more areas and swept.
It’s amazing what you’ll find under garage leaves:
A petrified leaf
A Spanish penny!?
Evidence of car troubles (should have checked here sooner!)
Once those beer supplies are gone the garage shelf will be totally clear sans some tools!
The pantry is very much thinned out of anything I don’t see us eating between now and summer (By the way, the Indian meal moth // spider evidence came from our outdoor pantry not the indoor one!
Boxes all lined up
Loose things in $1 bins I found at Target
Party supplies in a crate instead of just stacked
Baking supplies contained
Nut butters and jams contained
….will never look neat.
Next stop lunch!
I needed to use up two items in our pantry: brussels and pineapple!
After 20 minutes at 400* plus olive oil, maple, salt and pepper. LOVE the crunchy burnt leaves!!
The Guy Fieri Dragon Dagger was perfect for a pineapple when you need some serration!
To serve I had brussels
Toast with jam
And an Oikos with a cup of pineapple, coconut and a bit of Crunchy Coconut Granola
Wish I could say this was filled with spiked egg nog but sadly it was only water
Very filling! And I think I got in all the food groups too 🙂
Once my tummus was nice and full, I set to make bourbon balls!!
Things I Used To Hate But Now Like
- Bourbon balls
- Pimento cheese
- Marzipan (<– still don’t really like that)
My mom used makes bourbon balls every Christmas and I always ate one at the big Christmas party they would throw and be disappointed every year. And then once I formed a happy memory with the taste and smell, I loved them!
I made a special recipe page of the whole process (more for me to remember next year because they turned out great!)
Here it is —-> Bourbon Balls
I did pretty well not nibbling. I credit that to baking right after a satisfying lunch. I really didn’t want to eat too many. I did let myself lick my fingers (after rolling!!) and ate a ball when I was all finished to test ’em out.
And drank the fumes from the end of the bottle!
I’m going on a walk to the ATM and then getting geared up for some evening vinyasa yoga!
