Spice Organization

I hate my kitchen and you will probably see me mention that a few times.  I have two small drawers on each side of my stove, one is 7 inches wide and the other is 8 inches wide.  Really?  I'm also tired of not being able to find my spices in the cabinets so I decided to use the drawers.  Plus they are easier to spoon out and if they are kept in alphabetical order, easy to locate.


Chalkboard vinyl
2" circle cutter
Silver Sharpie
4 oz canning jars

I just punched out the amount of circles I needed then put them on the lids and wrote the name of the spice on there.

So far it has been a great change for me.  No one can find the pot holders anymore since I moved them!  HA!

Chicken Taco Crescents

Some nights when Mike works, I just want to find something easy and quick for he kids and I to eat. There are some items I always keep in the kitchen. Crescents, biscuits, chicken, taco seasoning, pasta, etc. Last night Mike had to do security at the Oak Mountain Fair (used be called the Alabama State Fair), so I just thought about what I had that I could whip up quickly because we had been out of town all weekend and there was a ton of laundry to do.

Chicken Taco Crescents


3 chicken breasts
1 can of 8 count crescent rolls
1/2 pack of taco seasoning
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  I used my kitchen scissors and cut up the thawed chicken breasts into bite size pieces.  Then I sauteed them in a little olive oil until they were browned just a little. Then I added 1/2 pack of taco seasoning and about a 1/8 up of water and let that simmer for a few minutes.  I rolled up about 3-4 pieces of chicken and a little cheese. Let them cook for 12-14 minutes.  I put a dollop of sour cream on the plate for dipping.

The kids loved it and if Sarah likes it then I feel like I've accomplished something. She is my somewhat picky eater.  Enjoy!
