My organizing tip of the week is... you know all those extra tags you get from scrapbooking (if you scrapbook). I never know what to do with them and then it struck me to combine two of my favorite things my label maker and scrapbook supplies. I labeled my linen closet last week. It may seem a little overkill since rarely anyone else is putting my laundry away but I definately find anything I label tends to stay organized.

a package of chkn teriyaki meatballs (aidell's is the brand)
1 can pineapple chunks or a fresh pineapple cut into chunks
red pepper cut into chunks
green pepper cut into chunks
red onion cut into chunks
soak wooden skewers in water, skewer meatballs and vegetables, pineapple alternately (the package says to grill but I was worried they would fall apart so I cooked them in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes) Serve with rice and a green salad. I have been cooking rice in my microwave in a pottery casserole dish with cover. My microwave has a sensor feature for some foods (rice being one of them) If yours has it I highly recommend trying it out. Way easier! It takes less then 30 minutes for brown rice.
no... they are my boxes of possibilities.
Too deep, too funny!
