I wanted to start a new blog series today.
I am so guilty of pinning,pinning,pinning...and never doing anything with the pins.
This year I've really worked on changing that and I've been actually TRYING the things I pin. Revolutionary,huh? HA!
I thought that every now and then I'd share pins I've tried and give you a little review. I really think this is helpful...especially with those food pins.
If you have any pins you've tried lately and really liked..share them in the comments!
Here's a few things I've pinned and tried in the past few months.
Woven Scarf Knot
Review- The video is super helpful but I am SO bad at following videos in mirror image. SO bad. I kept getting confused.Bless my heart.
So I pretty much half did it and still love teh way it turned out.
Family Dinner with a Book Theme
Review- Okay. I'm a former teacher. How did I NOT think of this myself?
Such a great idea. SO fun. An easy meal and a super cute book. Sadie loved the book so much that she requested I read it to hear class this week.
Review-It totally works. But it is over QUICKLY. In the pin it says you can add more food coloring to keep it going,but that didn't work for us.
Pork Tenderloin w/ Spinach,Mozzarella,Proscuitto
Review- SO SO SO SO SO GOOD. And so easy. We've done this about 6 times now, and lots of times we make up the stuffing for the tenderloin.
But the spinach+prosciutto+sun dried tomatoes+mozzarella is the perfect combination. This is a light,delicious dish.
Review- Yeah. This (original) pin lies. It says that an aura will come out of the water in the dark. Which is silly and highly suspicious. I edited the pin to take that part out.
And of course there is no "aura". But it was still fun. This was after Jimmy's surgery and I was getting desperate for entertainment.
Lava in a Cup
Review- Go do it now. So easy. Amazingly cool. We did it about six times in a row.
Review: Buy glowsticks at Michaels (a dollar for a dozen). Throw 2 dozen in the bath, turn the lights out...and it's like a rave up in there.
Review- EHHHH.Okay. Makes the champagne pink but doesn't really change the taste. Not half as pretty as the pin makes it look. Kind of just looked like a Shirley Temple.
Slow Cooker Chicken Black Bean Tacos
Review- Delicious. As is any Skinnytaste meal I've ever made. YUM.
Other pins I've tried but didn't photograph:
printed these and used in my PL love them
chicken and white bean enchiladas. SO SO SO GOOD. An immediate favorite here.
oven baked fajitas. YUM.
buffalo chicken dip. made this for J during the super bowl. sinfully good. emphasis on sinful.
apple cider sangria.DELICIOUS. easy and GOOD. i do recommend letting it stay in the frig to infuse for a long time.
So there you have it!
Have a wonderful Thursday!
