Anthro inspired "flowers" and toothbrush holder

Thanks to my mom supplying me with styrofoam balls and Pinterest for supplying me with too many things I want to make....

Really, thanks.

This weekend when I couldn't sleep I cut up a bunch of q-tips and made these anthro inspired q-tip flowers.

I just cut q-tips in half, glued hot glue to secure them in place and used a dowel as a "stem".

The idea originally (I believe) came from awesome blogger.

I'm still undecided if I will paint my ends or not. I kind of like the plain white, but we shall see what happens!

Also, while I was at it, I threw all of my leftover glass rocks into a vase and created a new toothbrush holder. I still need to pick up some new rocks, but I am loving the way this looks!

Project 365: Day 82: Broccoli Cheese Soup

Well, you know that I am pretty much in love with my crockpot. It's slowly becoming my Sunday night dinner tradition in fact. Today was no different.

It's getting really cold, really fast here so this was a great dinner tonight!

3 cups milk
2 Tbsp. Butter
2 cans cream of chicken soup (undiluted)
1 lb velveeta, cut into cubes
1 bag Steam Fresh Broccoli

Cook broccoli according to package instructions. While broccoli is cooking,
combine milk, butter, velveeta and soup into the crockpot. Chop
up the steamed broccoli and add to the crockpot. Stir together.

Cook on high for 3 hours.

It was delicious served with hot ham and cheese sandwiches!

Project 365: Day 72: Recipe: Spinach chicken alfredo

New meal I tried out last week!

This was super easy, and the kids approved. Plus we had a ton of leftovers, which is always a good thing!

1 can of cooked chicken
1 jar of alfredo sauce
1/2 block of thawed spinach
1 box of penne pasta noodles
Moz. cheese (1 cup)

Boil noodles and chicken together until soft. Combine spinach, alfredo, chicken and pasta into a casserole dish.

Cover with mozarella cheese. Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
