Come visit my sister blog!

I decided to peruse selling some of the items that I sew and with the encouragement of a friend dog coats.  I sewed a couple for his miniature schnauzer and little Biscuit received many compliments.  So Sadie loves Co. was  born!  This blog will focus on my kitchen and craft adventures while Sadie loves Co. will focus on puppy sewing and other randoms I decide to sell.

Come on over and visit us!

I attempted to make samosas for the first time the other night.  Correction, I successfully made samosas, however the shape looked more like empanadas - but that's okay, right?   

They were absolutely delish!  I could not eat them fast enough.  

I used the recipe over at Veg Recipes of India, I'm not going to repost it here, because there is already a fabulous step by step instruction on how to make them.  The cost for the samosas came out to less than $1 per samosa.  You can't beat that cost at any Indian restaurant - at least not in the  United States.

From drab to fab

 Last week I went on a much needed vacation.  Grad school is officially finished and I have my life back! That means fun refurnishing sewing projects can commence.  Sadie girl and I took off to the beach then stopped by  Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown on the way back.

I love checking out thrift shops when I travel, so off I headed to the local DAV just minutes from my hotel in Williamsburg.  And I stumbled upon this adorable little side table with a price tag of a whopping $3.99!!!  In the back of my car it went.

Once I got home I rushed off to the paint store and found a taster jar of off white paint for only $0.50!!  Several sandings and coats of paint later...

That wire looks super weird in my photos I just realized.  It's my hanging lamp.  Too lazy to take more photos.  :)

3 Day Juice Cleanse

I decided to partake in a 3 day juice cleanse.  I've been feeling a bit sluggish lately and my  skin is looking a hot mess.  I normally juice a couple of times a week, but I am kicking it up a huge notch and drinking 6 juices a day! I will also eat at least one meal - I'm going to try to make that a raw meal, but veggies fer sure.

There a ton of reasons to juice, including detox, increased energy and clearer skin.  I won't go through all the benefits, you can find a million websites with great info.  I also recommenced checking out the movie Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.  Joe Cross looses over 100 pounds through juicing. He went extreme juicing, which I only recommend
under doctor supervision.

I'm adopting recipes from  She juices broccoli, which I'm not a fan of and I have a ton of carrots and grapefruits, so I'll add those to some of the juices.  Last night I make 3 days worth of juices for the first juice of the day.  Today I'll make the rest.  I just pop them in the freezer and will take them out each day that I need them.

I'm expecting major withdrawals the first and second day, I'll be sure to keep you updated on my progress!
