Free Android App

I love Plants vs. Zombies! Today only Amazon is giving the game away for free. It's typically $2.99. If you have an Android phone, I highly recommend getting this app. Go HERE for the Amazon appstore and get the game.

Flower Petal "Stained Glass"

This is a beautiful idea for decorating a window or door. Just use flower petals and leaves arranged on contact paper!

Wonderful, right? I can't wait to try it. I have a sliding glass door that could use some color.


I made this for dinner tonight and it was a huge success! My picky husband and daughter both ate it up.  Unfortunately we all dug in before I could take a picture, but here's what it looks like.
The recipe is from The Culinary Chronicles. I didn't make the sauce this time, and I made it with some cheesy rice. Next time I'll try the sauce too.

4 Pieces Pork Loin, ½ inch thin1 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs
½ Cup Flour
2 Eggs
2 Tablespoons Milk
¼ Cup Vegetable Oil
Salt and Pepper

"Place breadcrumbs in a shallow dish and place the flour in another. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Season the pork with salt and pepper. Working in batches, dredge a few pieces of the pork in the flour, then the egg mixture, and finally the breadcrumbs to coat, shaking off the excess between each step.  Repeat with the remaining pork.
In a large skillet, heat the oil to medium high heat.  Slide in pork and fry until golden brown, approximately 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and drain the cutlets on paper towels. Repeat with remaining pork."
My pork was more like 3/4" thick and I cooked them about 5-6 minutes on each side. They were nice & juicy.

Popsicle Brownies

That's right. Brownies, on sticks, with sprinkles. Crazy Domestic has the details here, but it's pretty self explanatory based on pictures.

Shrinky Dink Rings

I saw this fantastic tutorial on how to make rings out of Shrinky Dinks and I can't wait to try it out. I have an allergy to nickel so I have to be careful of my jewelry. This will be great for something cheap and original. On top of that, what a great way to have a one of a kind art piece from the kids?
See the how to at Planet June!

Candy BBQ

Ever want to have a BBQ, but were craving candy? Yeah, me neither. But if you want to gain 100 pounds and don't mind getting diabetes, I say try this out.

Warning, the video has a bit of vulgar language!

PS- Debbie, if you're reading this. I selected this just for your kids. hahahaha!

My Bad

Hi everyone!
Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Between nice weather and a terror for a two year old, I was having trouble getting some time to post. But I'm going to be making a better effort now!
