Things I love...e.l.f. Makeup and Suave Conditioner

Things I love....I recently stumbled upon e.l.f. makeup at Target.  Prices starting at $1 they have some great stuff.  I tried the stick blush, a lipstick and a foundation brush.  Wonderful! I love this company.  They have so many options to try.  They also have a $3 and $5 lines of products.  I just recently got the $1 concealer, which worked great under my eyes and smelled nice too. 

Suave Professionals sleek conditioner. Wow. At $1.78, I like this more than the $6 Loreal Sleek I was using.  I wouldn't even have considered trying it, but at my last haircut, I was told this is better than most things out there, even Matrix.  The lady at Hair Cuttery said they did a recent study/test on shampoos and conditioners.  Pantene (which I was also using) and  Head and Shoulders scored the lowest.  She said that there was floor polish in H & S and Pantene was the worst for leaving a residue on your scalp and hair. What?  I'm not saying that I'm not still going to use it, however I did come out on top money wise as Suave Professionals exceeded my expectations.  I'm a believer. 

If you have a favorite product, please share!  Word of mouth is the best.

Garlic Marinated Chicken

 Chicken is one of the most versatile meats out there.  I'm always looking for new ways to serve it up.
Here's another I wanted to share with you.

2 Chicken Breast, butterflied
3 Tbsps. Olive Oil
1 1/2 Tsps Garlic Powder
1/4 Cup Rice Vinegar
1 Tsp of dried Thyme
Dash of pepper & Salt
3/4 Cup Breadcrumbs (+ or -)
1 Egg, beaten

In a resealable bag, combine 1 Tbsp Olive oil, garlic powder, rice vinegar, pepper, salt and thyme with the chicken. 
Let marinate in the fridge for an hour.
Take out chicken, discard marinade.
Dip chicken pieces into egg then breadcrumbs (I made my own)
In a pan, add a couple of tbsps of oil and heat over medium. 
Add chicken to the hot pan, turning halfway through cooking. 
Let sit for 5 Minutes.
Slice at a diagonal and serve. 
Full of flavor!

Seasoned Pretzels

 I'm really digging these pretzels I made the other day.  Potluck, here we come!

1/2 Cup Canola Oil
1 Packet Dry Ranch seasoning
1 Bag Pretzels (normal size)
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 Tsp Lemon Pepper
1/2 Tsp Dill Weed

Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.  Place seasonings and oil in a big ziplock bag and mix together.  Then add pretzels and mix until well coated.  Open onto a cookie sheet.  Heat in the oven for 5 minutes, flipping the pretzels casually halfway through.

Made-over leftovers Lipton Broccoli Rice

Spinach Portabella Mushroom Rice

It's 2 o'clock again and I haven't eaten.  I searched my fridge and sauteed this together.

Leftover Cheddar Broccoli Rice
Fresh Spinach
Sliced Fresh Portabella
Leftover Beans
Shredded Cheese

I put this in a pan with a tiny bit of butter and olive oil, and sauteed it for about 5 minutes.  Turned out really tasty and,who knew, healthy too. 

Another project Andrew recently completed was a Walnut card table.  He designed it with the parameters of his client.  It turned out beautiful.  I didn't even know I wanted a wooden card table until now. 

 He did a dull rub finish.

It's Good Friday! Enjoy your weekend.
