I've been doing it wrong the whole time.

I love cherry tomatoes. They're perfect to just plop into your mouth as a snack or you could cut them up to add to your salad. I would always cut them in half, one by one and that was that until I came across a youtube video on how to properly cut cherry tomatoes. I thought It was pretty interesting and will test it out next time I have cherry tomatoes lying around.

How do you cut your tomatoes?
Have yourself a wonderful day!

Windy Days and Palachinke!

Today was such a windy day. It actually feels like it's October outside not the middle of July! I'm really getting worried about how our winter will be this year if it's so cold now. This windy weather is really good for drying clothes out on the clothes line! I managed to dry four loads today which is awesome!:)

After making dinner I wanted to treat my family with some palachinke also known as Crepes. We like to eat ours with a sweet filling like strawberry jam or Nutella or sometimes even with a light sprinkle of sugar. It was a delicious way to end our dinner!

Painting with Chalk Board Paint!

I have been busy painting R and N's room today. It hasn't been painted in the four years that we've been in the house and it was in desperate need of a face lift.:)

A few years ago while visiting Ikea I picked up some of these cheap frames. I'm not sure what they're called but they're made out of pine.

I had some Chalk Board paint lying around in the house and I knew that I want to paint a chalk board section on one of their walls but since I've never painted with it before I thought I'd practice on something smaller.

I first pulled the glass/plastic out of the frame and gave it two coats of the chalk board paint. I then let it dry. There are easy instructions on the can for you to follow.

While the chalk board paint was drying the girls painted the picture frames. I only have N's chalk board picture frame in these photos. I think it turned out really cute.

Pork & Ramen Stir Fry

Okay, this was AMAZING!! Yum!! We couldn't stop eating it! You can find the recipe here.
I have never attempted making a meal that required Ramen noodles and bamboo shoots before but I'm so glad that I did. It was delicious and if you're going to be eating a stir fry with Ramen noodles you must eat it using chop sticks!:)
