So now that we’ve completed sewing the shower curtain from Ikea sheets, we move to the next step of the process – dying it. It’s not as hard as it seems but being my first time, I was very nervous (that’s what she said!).
We’ve been living in rental properties for years now. And every time we move, my husband reminds me how I shouldn’t be making any holes in the walls or purchasing expensive customized items. So far, we’ve only had one bathroom that required a shower curtain and we used the one we got as a wedding gift. Now, we have a rental with an extra bathroom and I really needed a curtain. I didn’t want to buy one because cheaper ones are usually not what I want and the one I want is usually way out of my price range. So, I set out to make one for the amount of money I would pay for a cheap one at Target, around $20.
I’ve been seeing this pin around Pinterest for a while. I actually recently discovered that I do find Dijon mustard rather pleasant in right quantities, so this one inevitably landed in 2girlsandapin’s Food 2 Test Queue board. With a title like “THE WORLD’S BEST CHICKEN” you know we had to give it a try. So, the other night, this recipe’s number was up! It was going to get tested to see if its title holds. So, let’s dig in!
I’ve been seeing shirts with lace back insert pop up here and there for a while now. But, I could never bring myself to pay $30-$60 for something that looked like a basic shirt with a small lace insert, especially since I could easily do this myself. So I decided to do it and do it under $10.
It was a simple weekday night and I was wondering what to make for dinner. So, I turned to our trusted friend Pinterest for inspiration. I already had a main dish picked out (more on that next week), so I just needed a light, healthy side. Thanks to our Pinterest board of potential things to test, this was a piece of cake! This potato, squash, and goat cheese gratin looked absolutely delicious, so I decided to give it a try.
Since the weather outside’s growing colder by the day, Christmas decorations are already up* (!!!), and everything is of a pumpkin variety…I decided to make, what? Baked Apple Cider Donut Holes! Yes, it makes perfect sense…have you seen the original picture!? Those look DELICIOUS! Additionally, my significant other didn’t even let me finish telling him what the name of these was….he heard apple cider and immediately yelled a resounding “YES!” to my question of whether he’d eat these if I made them….sooo, it was baking time!
* I actually made these BEFORE Halloween, I’m just now getting to writing a post about them.
Before we continue, I’d like to make a quick poll (feel free to leave your vote in the comments below): Are these supposed to be spelled a) donuts or b) doughnuts? What is the correct spelling and is there even a difference between the two?
