The Organized Life, February Paint Bucket

I’m saying goodbye to January today and thinking about February

I love Mardi Gras and Valentine’s Day {my son’s birthday!}

The flavor/theme of the month is

❤️ Love

Every recipe on this list includes an ingredient that I love

There are lots of colorful Mardi Gras inspired recipes on the list too

You can see photos of all these inspiration recipes

and the recipes I’ve made in the previous Februarys

in the February section of my Monthly Paint Bucket here


Spinach & Artichoke Quesadillas from Hugs & Kisses

Maple Bacon Pecan Bread from Instructables

Mardi Gras Flatbread, original recipe


Mardi Gras Salad from The Healthy Cooking Blog

Bacon Corn Spoon Bread from Mantitlement

Brussels Sprouts Blood Orange Salad from How Sweet Eats

Desserts and Miscellaneous

Here’s what I made for the January Paint Bucket

the flavor/theme of the month was Lighten Up

This Football Watching Menu for the Super Bowl

is lightened up from an Easy Appetizer Menu

from the holidays

Cheddar Bacon Ranch Celery Sticks from This Silly Girl’s Kitchen

inspired this Amazing Stuffed Celery

a wonderful low carb snack, lunch or app

Loaded Chicken & Asparagus Braid

was the result of using up some leftovers

that were in the refrigerator

It can be a meal or an appetizer

Southwestern Egg Rolls are baked not fried

and can be served for an appetizer, side dish or main course

BBQ Pork Tacos with Pineapple Cucumber Salad

are a great way to use leftover BBQ pulled pork

I also shared Themed Charcuterie Boards,

so much fun for gatherings!

The Best Winter Salad from Our Tiny Nest inspired me to make

Roasted Broccoli & Asparagus Salad,

a delicious dinner in a bowl any time of year

No Bake Lemon Berry Cups from SkinnyMs turned into

Lemon Shooters, an easy mini no bake dessert

Looking forward to February fun!

    I don’t know how I missed the lemon shooters….it’s fun to look back at all your January recipes and see what’s ahead for February.

    I love stuffed celery, but unfortunately for my waistline, I like pimento and cheese stuffed celery ;P but I think I like your idea of adding bacon even more!

  15. Mary says:

    Lots to love on your list Jenna! February will be a fun month of celebration at your house. 🙂 ♥

  16. Kim says:
