Chalkboards! && Freebie!!

Hey there! Amanda here :) With this weeks This and That post! Well ofcourse I am always browsing on Pinterest for some neat ideas to try.. Well I came across this simple DIY project ANYONE can do! It will add a little something fun to your house decor AND you can always change it up a bit! Well this idea is from The Creativity Exchange :) I just found her blog and I love it! I probably will do a little more snooping around at her neat ideas :D

Make a Chalkboard- How to make chalkboard- how to paint glass

So it's pretty simple.. Well very simple actually! So take a picture frame you want to use, anything at all.. :D  Get some chalkboard paint and paint the outside part of the glass in the frame! And then hang it up and chalk it up! What's great about this is that you can change whats in the frame just by simply erasing the board! Use plain old white chalk or even add some color :) Have the little ones draw a nice picture for you to show any room of the house! Or for a helpful way you can hang this up in your kitchen or study and use it for notes, anything important you need to jot down! I will definitely be doing this! Heck I may even have one in each room once I get my own place! So enjoy and have fun with it girls!

Baked Garlic Cilantro Fries!

Hey Amanda here for this weeks This and That post!! So summer is all about enjoying good eats right?! Well I found something that sounds super delicious! Baked Garlic Cilantro Fries! Sounds scrumptious right!? I take no credit for this recipe, I came across a blog titled The Talking Kitchen.. So here it is!!

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 20-25 mins

- 5 to 6 Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into thin fries
- 2 Tbsp of olive oil
- 1/4 to 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 to 3/4 tsp sea salt
- pepper
- 1/4 cup loosely  packed cilantro leaves, finely chopped

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees, and get a baking sheet with rack ready (if no rack, just line with foil/parchment paper and drizzle with olive oil. Cut the potatoes into fries and place in a bowl of cold water to soak for a few minutes.
Drain the water and dry the fries with paper towel. Once dry, toss the fries with the olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Lay on a baking sheet in a single layer, preferably one that has a cooking rack so the fries can have the air circulating all around them (and no need to flip.) Bake for 20-25 minutes depending on your oven and how crispy you like your fries. If using a baking sheet without a rack, halfway through the cooking time, flip the fries.
Once done, toss fries with cilantro in a bowl.
Enjoy by the handful!

&& Now to some scrapping!! Here's a template from our store called Camping Out Vol.2
