Sushi and Chicken


First attempt at Sushi in years…. Need more practice. It all tasted good though!

Challenges need to be beaten. Always try to improve and learn.

Chipotle Chicken Salad Bowls


I made Shredded Mesquite Chicken Nachos last night.
With black beans, pickled jalapeños, monterey jack cheese, cheddar and mozzarella, sprinkled with green onions, guacamole and sour cream. Mmmmmm. I had some chicken left over so for lunch today, I whipped us up some Chipotle Chicken Salad Bowls! The mesquite in the chicken was masked by the chipotle so no worries there. They were delicious and nothing was wasted. Especially those nachos last night. The boys ate them up rather fast.

Happy International Coffee Day


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia…
International Coffee Day (also known as Coffee Day or National Coffee Day) is an annual event observed on September 29 in a handful of countries for the celebration and enjoyment of the popular beverage coffee. This day is also used to promote fair trade coffee and to raise awareness for the plight of the coffee growers. On this day, many businesses around the world offer free or discounted cups of coffee. Some businesses share coupons and special deals with their loyal followers via social networking. Some greeting card companies sell National Coffee Day greeting cards, as well as free e-cards to help celebrate the occasion.

I certainly don’t get my coffee for free at any time, however, with the wind and rain swirling outside my door… I am completely content on my sofa, with my book and a good cup of Canterbury Coffee. Thank you very much!

Then it’s back to work and renos 🙂

House Reno Teaser


I love technology! With the help of my iPad and an app I was able to work on renos while listening and watching a webinar for work. (Ok maybe I will need to do a bit of review) but it’s just after noon and so much has been accomplished!!! Now if it were me I’d take the rest of the day off, pat on the back, go for a run, have a hot bath and read… but no… Hubby sees all opportunities to do more work. Got to go. He’s beckoning from above like as if the heavens are calling. HA! Ya right, he’s asking for another coffee. Got to go! Bye for now.

Here’s a little House Reno Teaser! No it is not a drain. LOL

Some BLING for the house!


Something oh so artsy, fancy and definitely expensive is getting installed today. Oh baby it’s been a while. You were filthy but I polished your chrome till you twinkled! Hubby did an outstanding job, hardest most awkward job, and I’m oh so proud of him. Flawless job boy. There will be pics but for now here’s a little House Reno Teaser 😜

Coffee O’Clock


Hello and good morning to all my super fabulous readers. I hope you slept like a lead pipe? I would say ‘like a baby’ but that expression makes no sense to me…. how many moms out there complain about lack of sleep? See, now a pipe just lays there, out cold LOL. I, on the other hand, slept more like a baby, up a few times. Once at 2:30am trying to figure out why my creepy neighbours have every single light on inside and outside of their house… Strange.
Time for my second cup of coffee for the morning. My favorite coffee Canterbury Coffee!
