Get Busy For Father's Day

Image
Father's Day is upon us again and it's time to celebraate the men in our lives.  Whether it's your father, husband, uncle, brother, son or that special man that has been their for you and means the world to you, let them know what's in your heart. Not everyone have a male figure that have help mould and transformed them into being who they are and have helped their transition.
This year, in my hone i am happy to say my father will be in town for the first father's day in many, many years. So, this definately a treat. We will be celebrating by having a Bar-be -que with all the dlicious usuals. I had to do a tablescape for the occasion, using my father's favorite color;blue.
This tablescape is super simple, as my husband does not like a lot of fussiness. Most of the dishes I bought at Home Sense, while others were bought at the Dollar Tree.

Changing Your Decor for Summer

Image
When winter finally step through the door of last season, it is always a celebration  to bring the warmer weather in. With this warm weather comes the feeling of  revitalization, energy and rebirth. This is when you shedule in time to go through the the things you have accumilated over the pass season and purge the unneccesary items. Donate them to someone that has an immediae use for them.
It is also a time to change out your decor for things that will lift your mood from the pass gloomy months of winter. Put away the flannel sheets and take out the soft colorful cotton ones. Trade in your throws and cushions or lighter versions and don't forget flowers transform any space.
One thing that changes every season and sometimes twice for the season is my table scape. I love beautiful colorful things, but I am also frugal. Having money smarts is what I endorse. Therefore, saving is one of my priorities whenever it's time to spend. This leads me to my Summer Tablescape.

What's cooking in Reesa's kitchen

Image
It's been on of those days where you wonder what will be cooking in Reesa'a kitchen. Well, I decided that it was a good day to sautee some chicken and get out the pasta. I have be trying to hold off on pasta for a while, but being a carb-olic makes it darn impossible. So, I have decided to reduce my portions, which has been very hard. Because I love my cooking, it's tasty, very flavorful, where the flavors marry and produce a tantalizing taste to the tongue makes me more than i should. Or, that's what I tell myself.
Well, today I got out a lovely organic chicken breast and seasoned it with my favorite blend of seasons. I t hen, placed the chicken covered, into the refrigerator for two hours. later when I was ready to cook I removed it from the fridge and began sauteing in coconut oil. This
 oil is my choikce of oil since it is a medium fatty chain oil, much healthier. I then sauteed vegetables and seve the chicken with pasta and parmesan cheese.
Dispite my burnt fry p…

Getting the Brussel sprouts done

The Sprouts
Yesterday like any other day I sat wondering what my vegetable of the day should be. I thought of doing carrots, but that's an everyday occurrence. I usually make a carrot, celery and spinach drink in the mornings so I wasn't excited about having it for supper. I, then remember the brussels sprout sitting the cooler that no one want. I for one love the little sprouts and so does my hubby. The children however have declared that they hate brussels sprout and there is nothing I can do to them that will change their minds.
So, I decided and against the children's wishes I MADE THE SPROUTS.
I simple sauteed a handful of sliced mushroom and chopped onion until tender and golden. I then added the Brussels sprout and cover the sauce pan so as to build up steam. I turned the stove down to medium low and added salt and pepper to taste. If there is not enough liquid in the pot add about 2-3 tablespoon water, cook until tender, but crunchy.
The verdict, one child ate tw…

Trying Sensa Weight Lost System

Image
I am going to lose weight with Sensa Well, the summer is approaching and I need to lose thirty pounds that have crept on me over the last few years. I am tired of hauling around thirty extra pounds around with me all the time and need it gone. I have been frustrated with this weight for a while and have tried various diets which did not work. Most of them are   just too restrictive and the others are just weird.
I have been hearing about Sensa for a while , and was hesitant in trying it( there are just so much diets 'stuff' on the market), but I gave in when they said you didn't have to go on a diet. Yeah! That sounds like something I could do.
I got my Sensa I ordered the product four days ago and it arrived today to my surprise. I was happy because I wanted to start as soon as possible. Incase you haven't noticed summer is on our tail. I had gone out and started my summer shopping, I decided to buy everything two size small, just to show my determination...not sure …
Well, it is about time I do this book. I have been procrasternating for ever and finally I muistered up enough courage to put pen to paper and once I got started it was hard to stop. There were so many ideas floating around in my head but, because this is my first book I decided to keep it simpl where beginners can use this as a guide to making fresh healthy vegan meal.. I think it worked.
The book is called Livin' It Up Vegan and the recipes  are  quick  and easy, fun and delicious. Please go to my authors page and like. https://www.facebook.com/ReesaMckenziebook
