The Organized Life, April Paint Bucket

I decided to take the month off and not cook a thing…

April Fool!

I love it when people cook for me, but I can’t imagine not cooking for a month, the kitchen is one of my favorite playgrounds~ Here’s the list of recipes that recently caught my eye and added to my recipe bucket list for April~

You can view the recipes from other sites by clicking on the green title.  The recipes that don’t have a link are ideas I want to develop into a dish.  I like to leave a lot of flexibility in my menu plans, sometimes you simply don’t want the pot roast on Sunday that you thought you would when you planned your week last Monday~

So leave yourself plenty of options so you can get creative in the kitchen!

  2. Can I just mention how cute those pails are? Did you paint them yourself? I want to find some and paint them, then force some flower bulbs in. I would love them with hyacinths or tulips.

    Hi, Thank you for your comment on my Easter tablescape using the little paint buckets. I apologize for replying late, but just found some comments in my spam box. ?? I like the way you used your little paint buckets too! I haven’t seen the little black and white one. So cute, and fun!
