OK now that I have that off my chest here is the update for my 3 in 30 goals.
1. Clean one room thoroughly and completely, plurged, window washed (if have any) ceiling and walls washed. Lights washed, bulbs changed. If have curtains, them washed, iron or replaced if need be.
This is a very ambitious goal for me. However it is one that I really want to accomplish. I did not get one complete room done this week. However we did change all the light bulbs in the house and in turn all the lights got a through washing. I completely washed the ceiling in the kitchen and my hubby took apart the kitchen window and thoroughly cleaned it. We took down the kitchen curtain and washed it. (My kitchen window faces my neighbors house and she moved out a couple months ago so we have no plans to rehang the curtain) We also packed away a couple boxes of stuff in preparation if our bid gets accepted. (We are planning on moving in a couple months one way or the other) I still have to clean out the cupboards and finish washing walls in the kitchen but otherwise it is almost clean.
2. Keep up with making a new recipe every week.
This is awesome for me. It really gets my creative juices flowing. The Italian chicken that I made last Friday was a complete flop. In fact we ended up throwing it out. :(
However this week I made these to die for healthy German-Chocolate Fudge bites! They are amazing!!!!! Sarah's dance teacher plus one of the dance moms there have many severe food issues. They are not allowed gluten, processed sugar, etc. So when I came across this recipe and made it and LOVED it I knew I had to make it for them. So I made up another batch last night and brought it in. They all LOVED it as well. I even had other moms ask me for the recipe. It is fast, easy and healthy and delicious. Combinations that you do not see often. LOL
I also made banana ice cream. My daughter fell in love and I must say she is a bit of a picky eater. I made a big batch of the plain, scooped a good bit out and froze it, then added cocoa powder (which I really like, my daughter not as much), scooped some of that out for moi, then added Nutella. I know the recipe says to add peanut butter but my daughter is in love with Nutella so I stuck with a faithful. She really like that batch as well so I scraped the bowl and throw that in the freezer.
I love that these recipes that although taste amazing, seem to be junk food are actually not bad for you at all.
Tonight for supper I am making the lemon chicken recipe again. I wanted to make lime coconut, but my link to the recipe is gone and I am unable to find the exact recipe I wanted. Might have to try and make something on my own with those ingredients. :)
3. Take more pictures.
OK this was a complete fail. I brought my camera with me to town twice this week and never even took it out of the bag. I am not sure why. I love my camera, I love to take pictures, I have an idea sheet and in fact I even have an idea for some framed pictures at home. I will admit that the temperature has dropped so I was not in the mood to go traipsing through the parks in -25. Yep I am a wuss. LOL
All in all it was fairly successful. This weekend is scrap booking so maybe it will inspire me to get out and take more pictures.
I am linking up today with Ashley at the 3 in 30 challenge update.
As well with Michelle's Caffeinated Randomness.
