Cleaning, Haircuts and Dinner

Pin It
"It's Friday..Friday...gotta get down on Friday".. ( you'll have that song stuck on your mind the whole day).

I've been cleaning my office/den for the last 2 days. I have accumulated so much crap (especially scrapbooking crap) over the years that I was afraid I'm gonna be featured on Hoarders.

So I got rid of boxes and boxes of *schtuff*! I didn't realize I was  hanging on to so many magazines for far too long.

I just have a little bit more to do...I've rearranged furniture and have a few more decorating things to finish.

Did I mention that I got a haircut, too? I went for a "short inverted bob" this time 'cuz I just can't stand the long hair anymore!

I like it and it will save me so much time now -- wash and go!

I will leave you with a recipe that's easy, delicious and healthy...
Thai Pork and Rice Bowl (adapted from Weight Watcher's All Time Favorites)

  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 1 lb. ground lean pork
  • 2 assorted color bell pepper, seeded and cut into strips
  • 1/2 lb. fresh white mushrooms, thickly sliced
  • 2 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 Tbsp. reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 13/4 tsp. Thai red curry paste
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime

1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok set over medium high heat. Add the pork and stir fry until the pork almost loses its pink color, about 4 minutes. Add the bell peppers and mushrooms and stir fry fro 1 minute.

2. Add the broth, rice and soy sauce and curry paste to the skillet, bring to a boil, stirring. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the rice is tender and the broth is absorbed, about 20 minutes.

3. Remove the skillet from the heat; stir in the scallions and cilantro. Drizzle with the lime juice and serve.
I have a BIG delivery coming to the  house today....gotta get ready!

Have a good start to your weekend!
