The Organized Life, February Paint Bucket


February is going to be a busy month

The flavor of the month was Broccoli

There is never enough time to make everything on my monthly bucket list, but I love having it for motivatation to try new recipes

I try to include a variety of things so I can choose something that sounds good on any particular day, and fits into the schedule or occasion

Taking a little time organizing recipes really pays off in saved time later, and basically eliminates the age old question, “What’s for dinner?”

Thank you for stopping by!

    It always bothers me when Valentine’s Day and Mardi Gras are so close together…I don’t know how to decorate! So I think tomorrow I’ll decorate the kitchen for Mardi Gras and the dining room for Valentine’s Day. I’ll be at a horse show and miss the Super Bowl which is fine!

    LOL I like your flavor of the month…..I wish I could party this month a little!!! But it looks like it’s going to be back to back horse shows every weekend! :/
