Dinner Chez Moi- Book Review

Tags

,

So, this is definitely a cookbook, but more too. It’s a cookbook made for the basic to mid level cook. It’s a perfect French cookbook for those like me: culinary challenged, lacking¬† decision making skills of what to cook, not wanting to spend hours in the kitchen. (BTW: I have tried a few of her recipes from her previous books and they have been easy to make and delicious.)

There are also a lot of French cooking tips and insights into how the French view and eat meals. Which is why I read this book entirely last night (excluding all the recipes) and am counting it as one of the 12 books I said I would read this year. ūüėČ

Bullet Journaling

Tags

I just found out about Bullet Journals and now that I know about it, I see it everywhere! This is a great idea for “list” people.

It¬īs basically an all in one agenda book. You hand make your¬†journal which includes everything and anything you want or need: day/month planning; goals; inspirations; notes; dates, reminders, etc. The idea is that you make your planner in a format that works for you in a bulleted simple statement kinda way. I realized I partially do this already using the “Notes” section in the back of my calendar book, but not as thought out. I think Bullet Journaling is on to something.

Here’s a¬†few of examples below. Let your creativity flow!

Layered Rugs- A Perfect Foundation

Tags

Layered rugs are trending now and the look helps give a room a finished look. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, its functional for:

  • A¬†rug too small for an area
  • Making a larger rug area
  • High traffic areas
  • Adding texture to a room
  • Adding color

Below are some popular rug combinations.

Jute rug + faux hide (or fur)

Two flat weave rugs

Plush solid (or large pattern) rug + Moroccan rug (or Turkish kilim)

A Liquid Life

Tags

I have a drinking problem. Not alcoholic, but healthful. Is it possible to get out of control with daily healthy drinks? I’m beginning to wonder and so is my sloshing stomach Here is my daily consumption:

Warm water with lemon OR Apple Cider Vinegar

 

Morning Smoothie (including a plethora of powders)

 

Green Tea (probably 2-3 cups)

 

Then later I have my daily bottle of homemade Kombucha

 

A bottle of Topo Chico (carbonated mineral water)

 

A cup of Matcha with almond milk

 

More tea throughout the late afternoon/evening

 

And I’m thinking of starting a late night cup of Golden Milk (Turmeric benefits)
