The Organized Life, March Paint Bucket

Can you believe it’s March already? Yea Spring is almost here!  Time for a new bucket list of recipes~

I never make everything on the list and try to leave lots of room for variation and adaptation depending on what’s going on.  The February list really helped me make some wonderful things and pushed me to try new recipes even during very busy days.  Sometimes I just don’t have time to think or plan so I go to the list and just choose something~

Here’s some things I might try this month


Green Goddess Dip

Vegetable Pot Stickers [brought over from the February List]

Bite Size Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Pineapple Empanaditas


Stacked Salad

Mexican Rice from Happier than a Pig in Mud

Cucumber Salad

Lime and Creamy Cashew Fettucini from Half Baked Harvest

Main Dish

Black Bean  & Corn Burrito with Guacamole

Slow Cooker Tomato Basil Soup from the Girl who Ate Everything

    The pear and gorgonzola quiche is definitely on my list of things to make. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

  2. Ooh it’s so hard to choose from you list but the Green Goddess dip and cucumber salad sound yummy. As do the gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches…but it’s almost swimsuit season, so I’m thinking that may not be such a good idea…

    Everything sounds really good Jenna and I think you’ll like the rice if you try it. Your green beans look great, I wouldn’t mind a few to munch on now:@)

    I like your idea of writing down the things you want to try each month – maybe if I did this I would actually get to some of the things I look at and say I should try that! It all looks and sounds good!

  5. Great to have you at Seasonal Sundays!
