I’ve done quite a few projects lately so I’m feeling the need to resurrect my Pinned It, Did It Mondays. Yeah yeah I know it’s Friday. I’m working through a huge list of blogs to catch up on and this was an easy one to write today. Pinned It, Did It is where I actually take some of the things I’ve found on Pinterest, put them into action, and then review them for you.
My pictures: My review: I bought 7 of these tubs from Wal-Mart. 3 for kids and 4 for some of my school/home files. I bought several large packs of file folders (yes this took my entire “home” budget for several months.) For my kid’s boxes, I made folders with the labels:
- Baby Information
- Health Records
- Documents & Certificates
- Age 0-3
- Age 4-5
- Kindergarten through Twelfth Grade
- Lots of extra blank ones for things I didn’t think of
While I’ve made it known that cooking is not my forte, it has been nice to finally feel well enough to make something for my family. Here’s a few recipes that we’ve enjoyed the last month:Source: Coffee Crusted Beef Tenderloin from Better Homes and Gardens
My review: Sad, no picture, but this was fabulous! I made this for our Christmas dinner and it got rave reviews from myself and William (kids wouldn’t touch it). Now, I did try it later with a not-so-good cut of meat and I learned my lesson not to do that again.

My picture:My Review: I love Chipotle so I can’t say this was better than Chipotle. It doesn’t have quite the kick that they get into their salads. But this was really good! I love cilantro so this was right up my alley. William ate it with chips like a salsa and I just ate mine right out of the bowl like a salad. Definitely worth keeping this pin.

My picture: My review: yummy! It’s definitely a little sweet and I only used about half the brown sugar. Next time, I’d use only about 1/3. But served over rice, William definitely approved. And as you can tell by my pictures, I threw in a few extra veggies into mine.
