I wanted to share my new favourite supper time resource!  I found this resource (called Pinch of Yum) on pinterest and I've made three of her meals.  They were yum, yum, and yum!!

In case you wanted to try them, they are:

Chopped Apple Quinoa Salad

Skinny Chicken Enchiladas

Chopped Thai Chicken Salad

All were delish but I think the Chopped Thai Chicken Salad was our favourite of the three.  She has some great ideas for new recipes and her photos are really pretty.  That always counts for something, I think.  My photos aren't as lovely as Lindsay's so I'll let you check hers out.  And I'll leave you with a photo of my baby instead.

Let's be honest here.  I don't really spring clean.  Don't get me wrong, I actually do enjoy cleaning but I just don't have a lot of time.  However, over the last few weeks the tiles in our bathroom have been driving me crazy they were so disgusting.  It was time to get the job done, my friends.

All it took was a spray bottle of Vim and a hard bristled scrub brush.  A winning combination.  The results?  A Christmas miracle.


Don't judge me by the before picture.  I do clean the bathtub...but the grout was so gross!!  It isn't the easiest thing to wash week to week because a regular old rag just doesn't cut it.  That scrub brush worked a miracle.  The grout isn't perfectly white because it's old and cracking a little bit in some places, but it is so much better than before!  What a satisfying project.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there.  This is my third year as a "mother" to baby Leroy!  So happy he moved in with us in 2011.  He likes to call me Mummy. :)  He brings a lot of joy into my life even though he doesn't like to cuddle like this anymore!

How could I be upset that these two left me for a week-long fishing trip when they come home and look this cute?  Glad they're back!
