Easy Croque Madame -- Croque (Ma-deb)



My version of a Croque Madame is called the Ma-deb --- because I improvise.

Turkey instead of Ham. 
Colby Jack Cheese instead of Swiss. 
Whatever bread or roll I have on hand. 
The bechamel sauce is from here:  Rachel Ray Croque Madame.  Easy, fast and great.
And.....I like my egg well done, the hubs likes his over easy. 
This is a great meal for any time of day, breakfast, lunch, dinner.
Give it a try.

Covet-- Sawhorse Desk....No other words needed.

I am currently coveting a sawhorse desk.  Nothing original, nothing fancy, just a sawhorse desk.

The one below is part of a style series by The Everygirl, if you haven't checked out their blog, or their personal blogs, you should.

My take below is from Woot.  If you don't Woot, you are missing out.  They have a daily deal as well as other great deals like this metal sawhorse for $35ish.  Seriously great deal.  Yes, I would spray paint it.

Not feeling the metal.  Head to your local home improvement store for some sawhorse brackets and wood, paint and you are good to go.  Or......what if you went industrial and left the sawhorse brackets the metal color, and stained your wood. Hmmmmm.

Either way.  Do a project, imagine something you covet.
Or in the immortal words of Tim Gunn, "Make it work.".  Well said.

Jennifer Fisher's House -- Great Inspiration

I totally apologize, as I have no idea where these photos came from.  But, I can tell you whose house they are.  They are Jewelry Designer Jennifer Fisher's house.

The hubs and I have been tackling a few projects lately, just sprucing stuff up, and these came to me for inspiration.

First can I just say, glass closet doors are genius.  

I have a side by side, accordion style closet.  I can just imagine laying in bed and planning my wardrobe.  Maybe some spotlights, or can lights.  

Art and leopard/cheetah.  Need I say more?  Oh, leather chairs...more said.
Seriously, I love everything about this room.

The chairs, the art.  Ok, the art.  Yes, it deserves two mentions.  The gallery wall.
The rug.

And her jewelry and story is amazing as well.

Happy Saturday.

Klaus the Morkie....Looking for his Friends...

Klaus likes to look thru the fence for his dog friends......the next door neighbor dogs. 
The bamboo fence on the chain link adds a  bit of separation for safety. 
Sorry for the blurry iphone pic.  But tooooooo cute to pass up.
Love this dog. 

Oh, and when he sees them, he barks, wags his tail, and jumps sideways.
Happy happy joy joy.  (Do you know where that is from).  Hehe.

Sadly it is the last day of July.  When I was taking this pic, it was quickly getting darker.
Does summer have to come to an end?

Pasta Pesto with Garden Veggies

How do you pasta?

It is summer time and there are tons of fresh veggies.  I went with sauteed zucchini and squash with
bow tie pasta with pesto on the side.

Vegetarian works for me.


Seriously, I can't cook.
I can prepare.
Now for some jewelry making.

Zucchini with Alfredo Sauce

How do you eat your veggies?  

Is your garden over run with zucchini?
Are you looking for a different way to serve it?

Simply use vegetable peeler to make strips. No fancy vegetable peeler needed.
