the Organized Life, the March Paint Bucket

Boy, February FLEW by! I am surprised I got so many things made from my bucket list in February but it filled its purpose, giving me meal ideas when I had no time to think! The monthly bucket list is my way of organizing my cooking thoughts and managing recipes that I want to try.  It is not a TO DO list, it is an inspiration board, a take off point to jump start menu planning.

Here’s what I made from the February Bucket list

BLACK CHERRY SMOOCH, a Seasonal Sipper

    I’m looking forward to your March ideas, Jenna. Here’s a slow cooker recipe I recently tried that was amazing! http://www.rachaelrayshow.com/food/recipes/french-onion-roast/
    I used the “Better Than Bouillon” for the stock, and served the meal with toasted French bread for dipping into those delicious juices.
