This is a light and delicious Salad.
Great on a hot summer night!
Very simple to pull together. 
Ingredients are chickpeas, lemon juice, olive oil, red pepper flakes, parsley, parmesan cheese and salt and pepper!
Really wonderful. Give it a try.

Pinterest Project #87 DIY Tent with Pool Noodle

The original project looked a lot better than ours did..
We used a pool noodle/Christmas lights and our curtains were too short.
But...we made it work and we had fun playing on a rainy day so all in all A+++
I plan on making another one following the original instructions next time  ;) But I used what I had on hand.


Pinterest Project #86 Crafting With Emmeline

This project was tons of fun!
You use cupcake liners for the fish body!

Emm is getting so much better with  not using an entire bottle of glue now so crafting is a bit more fun!

Gram's Potatoes

I love buying old cook books at the thrift stores or at yard sales.
The recipe comes from a cookbook called Sugar 'n Spice for recipes so nice!

These fries were absolutely perfect and delicious.
I would not say they are low in fat but they are definitely easier than frying in oil!
Safer too!
Tasted delicious..tender on the inside and crispy on the outside.

Gram's Potatoes

4 Large Baking potatoes
1/2 cup Hellman's mayonnaise

Cut potatoes lengthwise into 2-inch strips ( Or use THIS like I did..easier)
Place mayonnaise in a large plastic food bag. Add potatoes; shake to coat well.
Arrange in a single layter on baking sheet so that strips do not touch.
Sprinkle with salt. Bake in preheated 400° ove for 40 minutes, turning once, or until golden brown and tender.
Drain on paper towels.
