Its nice to have tacos without having them in a tortilla sometimes too. This is a great alternative to the normal taco recipe! I believe this recipe is really old that she has had for awhile. But to be honest I lost the recipe myself. Yes, I have made it that many times that I have it memorized! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
I hope you enjoy!
You know all of those Pinterest pins that you pin and say “Oh I have to do this one day, I can’t forget!” but you really do until it is too late. Well this time, I didn’t forget!
I would attach the pin but honestly I had never clicked on it before and it was just a picture! After the disappointment warred off and I realized I would have to do it myself, I decided not to share the “link”.
Before I get to the main event, I have to share something. I hate buying cards. Is there a stronger word for hate? Detest, despise, loath. I think they are over priced and never have enough personalization in them.
Don’t worry, my husband hates them too! So we made a deal with each other that we would never buy each other a card again. Yes I know I will regret this one day when I forget to make a card (I almost forgot on his birthday but shhhh).
For the wedding I had to make a card for him to read the day of and I wanted to personalize it just for him and but a little more effort in than drawing a picture like a 2 year old on the front.
So without further ado, here is the card I made him, a suit card!
Now for the pocket. I think it ties the entire card together, especially with the cute pocket squares!
You can use your best judgement for the size of the square but the rest is based on that square. After you cute the square, cut a rectangular shaped piece that is 1/5 of the square. Doing this gives the suit more dimension.
Cut two triangles that overlap and are a little longer than the square and have them overlap a little.
Hi Everyone, I am back!
It feels like it has been months since I last blogged even though it has only been a few weeks. I have been so busy lately with the bridal shower that I haven’t had time to blog. Now that it has past, I have been writing thank yous. I am still not done yet but it has been so long and I have missed blogging!
I really want to do a Bridal Shower round up but before I can do that I want to share a few more things we have made!
You have already seen my Tea Cup Candles that were our favors, but I haven’t shared our Teapot Centerpieces!!
While my mother and I were thrift store shopping, we were looking for teapots too. I must say, these are extremely hard to find! But we found 11 and that was perfect because we had 9 tables!
We set our Tea Cup Candles around the teapots so they both ended up being part of our centerpieces!
These were really easy to make too!
We went to Lowe’s 3 weeks before the shower to buy the flowers. We bought ones that were just budding or had just bloomed. That way they would be just blooming and not dying by the day of the bridal shower.
We happened to buy a few that were already in bloom and we actually couldn’t use them . Mom planted them in her flower bed though so it was okay.
|Some of the smaller flowers were for the teapots!|
The week before the shower, we planted them in the teapots to let them adapt to their new pot.
We have a lot of deer and we didn’t want them to eat our plants so we did pull them inside every night. We weren’t taking that risk! We also watered them at least twice a day. These plants were NOT dying on our watch!
I ended up giving them away to the oldest person at each table; everyone was so chatty after that! I heard comments like “Oh now we have to tell each other our age *giggle giggle*” and “Yes! That’s me!”.
So everyone loved it! Best part was we left the tags in them so people knew what they were and they could plant them in their garden! We also gave them the lids so not only did they have cute flowers but if they washed the teapot, they had a cute teapot too that wasn’t going to die.
There was only one left and it was my favorite pot with my favorite flower, what a wonderful coincidence I gladly kept it for myself!
Next week I am going to share are our Thank You cards Mother and I made, make sure you check back next week!
I was thinking about it and I realized I haven’t shared any of my wedding stuff yet! Crazy right. Such a big part of my life right now and I haven’t showed you anything.
The only thing I have really shared is my bridal shower favors, Tea Cup Candles. They are awesome, don’t get me wrong but its time to share some of the actual wedding stuff!
Today I am going to omizable Wedding Budget Excel Sheet!
Today I want to share with you something my MiMi (grandma) taught me how to make! In our house, we don’t buy dish cloths but instead MiMi would make them for us.
When I was in high school she showed me how to make them and now I have probably made around 20 wash cloths.
For christmas, I gave Eric a bunch for when he moves into our house and I want to share them with you! Mom has already requested a bunch the next time I make them too!
They are in high demand in our family!
Adjustments to the pattern are for the size of the washcloths. My mother prefers when I knit until there are 60 stitches on the needle because they are significantly bigger. These are extremely easy to adjust because the size is based on how many stitches are on the needle before you start decreasing.
When you make it through the third step, note that you have just made half of the washcloth (diagonally cut) so you can easily keep going if you want it bigger!
I hope you enjoy them as much as my family does!
I found the recipe on the Rhodes website! The family really enjoyed it except for the fact that I forgot to make a salad to go with it, oops!
The recipe is actually very simple! It feeds about six people (five if no one likes the ends like us). What you need is:
When you start preparing, make sure you set aside the Bread Dough for 3-4 hours so that it can thaw.
