Today shall be a Pinteresty post. I got most of the ideas from there. Now, before I show you these, please know that I am a finicky user in that I don't just peruse Pinterest, repin some junk then move on. I mostly read blogs and pin from there, and if I do get an idea straight from Pinterest, I always go to the link first, check out the site and maybe subscribe to the blog while I'm there. There's my rant. Check the link, read the blogs. If you don't I will be annoyed when your link from Pinterest is faulty. But I will probably keep following you anyway because you more than likely have good taste. Especially if you're here reading this. On with the projects.
First up, BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad. Tastier than my picture might reveal. Iowa Girl Eats just makes her food look so much better! Love her blog--I print off and try her recipes at least weekly.
Second, I saw this idea a gazillion times on Pinny. It's awesome--just give your kids some glowsticks in the tub, turn off the light, and prepare to hang out in the bathroom for at least 45 minutes.
This picture comes straight from Chef in Training, who originated the Pinterest phenom Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta. Definitely not a light dish, but twas well received in my household.
Got water balloons? Use em up before summer's over. We celebrated 4th of July with a little target practice. Draw some circles, targets, or other shape on the concrete with chalk and let the kiddies (or adults) go wild. Good for at least five minutes of fun, and no one walks away with welts or bruises.
