One Pot Creamy Orzo and Sausage

One Pot and Orzo in the same meal…perfection.  Have you tried Orzo pasta?  It looks a bit like overgrown rice :)  Since it is so small, it cooks pretty quickly.

This recipe combines this lovely little pasta with yummy chicken apple sausage.  I love the flavor of this sausage.  I have tried some different brands, but I usually buy this one because it is readily available at my local stores.

One Pot Italian Chicken Pasta

One Pot meals have become quite the sensation on the web these days.  I have fallen in love with them myself.  I’ve been making this meal for a while now and my family loves it. All the ingredients go into the pot at once and dinner is ready in about 20 minutes.  I doesn’t get much better than that!

The beauty of these meals is how easy and versatile they are.  If you need to feed more people, you just add more pasta and broth.  If you don’t like an ingredient, just swap it out for one you do.

Thai Chicken Pizza

The first time I ate Thai Chicken Pizza was at my friend Barbara’s house.  She made it for a big group of hungry teenagers.  They devoured it!  Our family has declared it a favorite meal.   I have to admit it has become my favorite pizza ever.

You can purchase a premade pizza crust or make your own.  I personally like the pizza dough recipe found here on Mel’s Kitchen Cafe.

It does take a few extra steps, but oh it is so worth it!  I like to bake the chicken and cut up the veggies up to a day ahead to save time when making this pizza.

Try it…you will like it.

Storage Boxes

Storage Boxes

I love these cute memory storage boxes.  They are so convenient to hide things away and organize.  I love all the fun colors and designs they come in.  There are plain ones too if you want a look of clean uniformity.
I already store pencils, book covers, and photos in them.

I went into my Michael’s craft looking for a storage solution for my scrabble tiles.  I found these on a one day sale (Today is Thursday July 17, 2014) priced at just 6 boxes for $10.  That only makes them $1.67 a piece!!  I bought six and may be headed back for more.

I love sharing good deals!
