Menu Plan Monday May 28

Menu Plan Monday!

We have a busy week ahead AND it’s going to be hot. So our eating this week is simple and not too heavy.

On the menu:

Veggie Burgers and Fries

Veggie Sloppy Joes and Potato Salad

Sesame Salad and Tofu with Home Grown Cilantro

Veggie Chick’n Patties in a salad with honey mustard dressing

Wow, that is an easy week of cooking!

On a different note: I think we have a new cat!

This lady was hanging around the yard (I think there’s a sign in the woods that points to my house and says “good eats thataway”.) No one has claimed her so I guess she’s ours.

Miniaturists alert: I have some more goodies on eBay

Some circa 1982 Swallowhill Dolls made from kits.

And a mixed lot of odds and ends.

That’s all for today. What’s on your menu?



Upcycled Wing Chairs – Mini Style

Monday, May 21st, 2012

As I have mentioned previously, I have been looking at various upcycled furniture around the Web. One of the styles I found was old upholstered furniture redone in a variety of fabrics (I am guessing that the fabrics may be leftover upholstery pieces.) I thought, “hey – I can do that!”

So here are my versions of upcycled wing chairs courtesy of House of Miniatures kits.

And who knew? As I am taking pictures of the chairs I discovered that the folks in my Contemporary Ranch are fabulously wealthy!

P. S. The orange wing chair is available for purchase in my Etsy Store. The link is to the right. Thanks!

Menu Plan Monday – May 7

Menu Plan Monday!

Last week I tried the bowl method and the reviews (all two) were mixed. I love being able to go in the fridge and mix and match. My husband, on the other hand, didn’t like having so many choices, especially at the end of the day. Sigh.

So this week we go back to more put together already stuff. On the menu:

Cauliflower Curry/Tofu/Rice
Red Beans and Rice
Taco Casserole
Pasta/Tomato Sauce
Broccoli Salad

For any miniature fans out there, I have two announcements:

First, I have a Jean Yingling Pitcher and Bowl and Chamber Pot on eBay.

It’s a gorgeous set, but I don’t seem to have a place for it and I am hoping it finds a new home.

Second, Mini Mod Pod has a great giveaway! Check it out!
