Unpacking, Painting and Getting it Right

It’s been awhile since I posted about the house and how things are coming along.  I’ve had to work more, and my unpacking fairies have lain around on the job a bit too much.

The bathroom that Lindsey was painting earlier, I repainted.  At certain times of the day the light would hit the walls just right and the room started to look peach colored.  I like peach, it’s a pretty color, but it’s not me.  So, I repainted my bathroom Peanut Butter – that’s the color name for the paint.  It looks like a warm gold in that room and I like it better. 

I’m designing my room differently this time around.  Why? Because my life has had so many changes these last few years that I want variety, I want versatile, I want to be able to adjust things without having to reinvent them each time.  I’m getting off subject, I will share more on that when I finally get the room done.

This is my bathroom, mostly red and warm brownish-gold.  It has a very comforting and relaxing feel and I love that.  I found an interesting sconce to put on the wall – saying Live, Laugh, Love that it very pretty when the candles are lit.

I have a castle that you can burn incense cones in too.  It’s quiet nice when lit, it sends incense up through the little windows and helps create a nice place to escape with a hot bath after a hard day. 

I also installed a shower thingy! Ha, yes, that is my technical term.  The shower head that was in the bathroom was atrocious and plain, so it had to be replaced.   There are a few more things I want to do to the bathroom, but there are so many other projects I need to finish, that I will have to get back to the final touches in a bit.  Eventually I will paint a border of some kind around the top of the bathroom, I just haven’t decided exactly what that will look like yet.

A Sampling of Creme

I did a demonstration of Philadelphia’s Cooking Creme’s today.  In an electric skillet, I added a little water, a 16 oz. bag of frozen vegetables, a package of Oscar Meyer grilled chicken pieces, Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, and a package of Philadelphia’s Cooking Creme.

This combination actually produced a pretty tasty meal in about 8 minutes.  The people walking by trying the samples really liked it, so much that many stopped to buy the products.  The kids that tried the samples wanted more.

I tried the Santa Fe Cooking Creme with mixed vegetables and brown rice.  At home I am going to add some black beans to this, along with some diced, cooked onions and jalapeno’s.  I kept thinking of different recipes to try with these creme’s while standing there.  They are really good and they are creamy, not clumpy or thick like regular cream cheese

If you’re looking for a little something different to try, that is quick and easy, then you might want to try this and see what you think.  The little containers of Cooking Creme have a recipe on the back of them.
