Are you looking for a quick, easy and healthy lunch? Then give these Tuna Pita Pockets a try! The are yummy, full of crunch and flavor.
For the on plan dressing I used Boathouse Greek Yogurt Ranch and it added so much flavor! If your dressing has more than 2 carbs per serving, just use a bit less than 2 tablespoons. If you need more moisture you could add some 1% Cottage Cheese or 0% Fage Greek yogurt.
Another good idea would be to add some garlic powder or onion powder for more flavor. Pair this lunch with some fruit and you are good to go!
I can tuna
1 cup chopped greens or chopped salad mix
2 tablespoons plan approved dressing
5-6 cherry tomatoes halved
1 Joseph’s Pita pocket
We are just few weeks away from Easter and I thought this would be the perfect time to review my Easter tutorials and DIY projects.
Today I will provide links to my top three tutorials from previous years and talk about two alternative ways to decorate Easter eggs (with links included).
My sister and I are going to dye Easter eggs again this year and I thought it would be fun to try two new ways to decorate our eggs (highlighted below). After trying these I will be writing a blog evaluating each process. My goal is to help direct you to the process that will work best for you and your family.
In March of 2017, I wrote three blogs on Easter gift ideas and DIY decorations.
The Mason jar Easter gifts gave you new and creative ways to package your Easter gifts. Also included was a free download (which is still available). This tutorial can be found here along with the free download.
That same month I wrote another tutorial on making rustic twine carrots which can be used in Easter/Spring decorating around your home. I enjoy decorating for a variety of holidays and hope some new ideas will encourage you. Find the Rustic Carrot tutorial here.
Then we also enjoyed a tutorial on how to make your own watercolor “Easter Egg” garland, which is a perfect project to do with your children or in a classroom. In this tutorial we painted traced “egg” shapes with watercolors, cut them out and punched holes in them. Then we attached ribbon to make a garland. This idea would also work well for Easter gift tags or greeting cards. You can find this tutorial here.
There are two alternative egg decorating ideas that I am going to explore this year. One involves bleeding tissue paper and the other shaving cream! Both of these directions give you multi-colored Easter eggs and they look like they might be easier for young children and less messy than traditional methods (no cups of dye to knock over or splash on your neighbor, counter or kitchen table).
The first tutorial uses shaving cream and food coloring. All the steps are outlined here on www.athriftymom.com.
Next up is dying Easter eggs with tissue paper. The key to this one is buying “bleeding” tissue paper - the only type of tissue paper that will leave colors behind on your eggs. You can find the complete step by step process here on www.thecraftyblogstalker.com.
I will post my evaluations and pictures of the new processes soon, so look for that coming up. Until then enjoy the Easter season and find joy in the fact that spring is upon us!
Father's day is just around the corner and today I was thinking, what ideas do I have that might help those needing a last minute gift idea for dad?
That's when it came to me! Why not use my mason jar wrap available at www.bethannerickson.etsy.com to wrap a jar of peanuts, a wine bottle, a jar of salsa or bag of coffee beans or fill a mason jar with his favorite candy. Really anything could be wrapped with one of my mason jar wraps to make into a personalized gift for Dad. There are so many ideas I could go on and on!
As I think about it, my dad has practically everything he could want. Does he really need another bbq set, car wash kit, or some trendy gift item he might never use? No! But I do know that every Dad has a snack food or a drink that he loves, that he would buy for himself. Why not make it into a Father's Day gift?
My mason jar wraps are affordable and easy to purchase and download on Etsy.
Step one: Purchase and print the mason jar wrap
Step two: Trim the wrap to size
Step three: Wrap around the gift item and tap in place
Three very simple steps and you have the perfect gift for dad!
