Plan With Me This Week April 23rd – April 29th

Hi Guys, here is my week of layouts for all three of my planners.  I did my layouts a little different then just using Etsy kits.  I also have videos up on each of these on my YouTube channel.  The link to my channel it below.

For my Classic Happy planner I used some paper that I had on hand.  I thought it would be nice to change things up a bit.  This is April so I tried to go with that kind of theme.

Honey Glazed Pork Tenderlion

I was watching one of my favorite YouTube channels Noreen’s Kitchen and she was making this Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin and it just look so easy and tasty that I had to try.   This is a really easy dish to make and can be done on a work night.

I had all the ingredients on hand so why not try something new right?  This was absolutely delicious and I will definitely be making this again.  My family just loved it.  The link to Noreen’s Kitchen web site is below so you can also check out some of her fabulous recipes that she does.

Mix honey, minced garlic, balsamic vinegar and orange juice in a small bowl to make a semi thick sauce.

Grilled Cheese Day

Hi Guys, did you know that today is national Grilled Cheese Day?  Well I want to celebrate with you this awesome day with sharing a recipe that my husband created.

Now you may think that the ingredients don’t work, but once you taste the grilled cheese sandwich you will be hooked.  I to thought that these ingredient would not work but you have to taste it and you will say what I did “this is very delicious”.

It’s very easy to make and all the ingredients you can purchase from Aldi, so this is also an inexpensive sandwich as well.

Steps:

Heat a non-stick skillet on medium heat.

Then butter one side of each piece of bread.  This is the side that will be facing down in the pan when cooking.

Put one of the buttered bread slice (butter side down) in heated pan, and then top with the cheddar cheese, guacamole, and then the bacon.

Put the other slice of buttered bread on top (with butter side facing up) and cook for about 4 minutes until bottom bread is golden brown.   Then flip the sandwich over (being careful) to brown the other side of the sandwich.

Remove from pan and serve.
