adventures in cooking and other things

When the fridge is looking barren, I usually end up throwing anything I have left together and melting cheese on top of it, or mixing it with pasta. Instant....something!

This lovely grouping of chopped onion, spinach, jalapeno and pepperoni made what I'd like to call french fry slop. Curly fries with mozzarella cheese. Don't get me wrong. It tasted awesome..especially with marinara sauce on the side, but the presentation left something to be desired.

A couple of weeks ago I finally got around to restocking my shipping supplies. It was like shipping supply Christmas! I ordered from a few different places and everything basically showed up on the same day. The UPS and Fedex men probably high-fived going up and down my stairs. It was cardboard box chaos! Lou was not entertained. There's more that you can't even see in this photo! I need a shipping supply room.

I'm really excited though because I finally found a "gift box" that I'm happy with that fits my little wedding couples perfectly. I like to make sure all of my figurines come in little gift boxes that way they can be easily and safely stored if needed. And now I have ten million of them, since it's a money saver to buy in bulk!

And a handsome kitty picture of Spike enjoying the new table and chairs set I bought from Ikea this past weekend. $80 for a table and four chairs! Score! It's a great size for my teeny apartment, and I'm in love with the glass top. (perfect for clay crafting). The chairs are a little flimsy (no rough-housing boys allowed!), but they look cute and a little retro, so I'll deal. Don't you just love the disgusting beige rug that's always standard in apartment buildings? Who thought that was a good idea? The only upside? It sort of matches my leopard (or is it cheetah?) throw rug.

Ew, whatever is in the yellow dish doesn't look appetizing at all, lol.

Great table! Perfect for that apartment!

By the way, sometimes you can find shipping material and boxes on eBay.

Yeah, I really like it! Guess you don't have to give me your round table anymore!

I actually bought my rigid envelope mailers for mailing art prints from a seller on ebay. I do a lot of shopping around before I settle on where to buy what. It takes FOREVERRRR. But I don't want to miss out on a better deal if it's out there!
