WIAW # 11

Hi everyone! It’s been a busy week since I last posted… I got an itch to organize the kitchen while the boy is away. I don’t have organization skills, so in order for me to get anything organized, it must first explode! I make a huge mess, but I have to be able to see everything, take it in, and think about it for a day or so before I come up with a desired solution. Then, I must go and shop for the things i need for organizing… and my method of shopping is going to all the stores so I know what’s out there, and then coming up with a realistic solution.

One thing I did complete was organizing the spices. The boy has been bugging me to get the spices organized since I moved in last September, but I didn’t like the stuff in stores. i wanted containers with large enough mouths so I could fit a tablespoon should I need to.  Pinterest came to the rescue! I saw this spice rack made with 4-oz jelly jars but I wanted to use the drawer for bulk spices as I don’t have a lot of back splash space.

Before: The red oval shows you my bulk spice “system”

After: I bought a 3 tier-shelf and jelly jars; I spray painted the lids, and then using my Silhouette Cameo, I created labels

What do you guys think?

 

I haven’t been to the grocery store lately, so I had to make do with what was in the fridge.

Mmm Greek yogurt with strawberries and ground flax seed

Morning snack: craisins and pistachios. Afternoon/after workout snack: Piña Colada Pure Protein Smoothie from the gym

Cauliflower crust pizza with red bell peppers & parmesan cheese (I didn’t have any chicken & wanted a light lunch so I could go to the gym in the early afternoon

Spaghetti Squash with ground turkey, red bell pepper, and red onion mixed into the sauce

For those of you interested, this is the recipe I used for the cauliflower pizza, except I used 1/2 cup cottage cheese instead of mozzarella (I drained it and blotted it with a paper towel first). I’ll have to try it with mozzarella as well to see if it makes a difference.

I didn’t mention this last week, but my mom is also coming to visit this weekend! I’m super stoked.. I can’t wait :)

What’s going on with you?
