Spring Onion & Zucchini with Bacon Over Pasta

I love that it is spring and we have farmer’s markets that are starting to fill up with delicious foods. Spring onion is a welcome sight as well as fresh zucchini. This recipe is the tastiest of fresh garden foods. I tend to buy spring onions very infrequently because I save the little rooted buds at the end and tuck them in some dirt.

That was 2 years ago, now I know how to fix that broken slider.$1 Craft Supplies at Dollar Tree! Continue reading “How to Fix a Zipper Without Sewing”

We grill out as often as I can, but it takes me awhile to figure out the hot spots and the timing when grilling.This past week I overcooked my pork loin.

DIY Organizing Containers made from Upcycled Cat Litter Pails

It’s spring and we’ve been doing some Spring cleaning including the garage. I wanted some containers that would fit on our shelves and hold the objects that tend to clutter up spaces. The cat litter pails worked awesome! They were very simple to prep and label. Now our balls, sand toys and play tools have a place. I think I may be adding some to our collection…..there’s chalk, bubble toys and maybe even my gardening tools.
