Last week’s party was lots of fun and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate everyone coming by as well as my amazing co-host Marilyn who hasn’t minded being peppered by questions and talked me off the ledge as I struggled with making buttons.
EVERYBODY had amazing ideas but I’m going to highlight a few that especially caught my eye.

Don’t you love the cherries?

YES!  It’s made out of old sweaters!
My contribution this week is of the meaty variety.
Usually on a Thursday we have leftovers.
I clean-out the fridge, work on my Food Waste post (muttering, darkly under my breath) and try to have an early night.  Recently though, I not only had zero leftovers to finish-up but I had a bit of extra energy.  Shocking.  I even, before I went to work in the morning, remembered to take out some gorgeous steak tips that I’ve had in the freezer.  This is a minor miracle in of itself.  Here’s what I came up with.
My marinade; 1 T. chilli garlic sauce, 1 chopped clove of garlic, 1/2 inch of ginger grated and 1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce.
Come home from work; grill meat.
While your meat is grilling; cook 1 package of soba noodles.  Dress the noodles with 1/4 soy sauce, 1/8 cup sesame oil, handfull of fresh parsley, dash of lemon juice, 1 tsp. honey and 1 T. sesame seeds.  Grill some mushrooms (dip in the noodle dressing before hand and they will get a lovely crust on them) as garnish.
And now onto your amazing ideas!
Here’s a few things to keep in mind as we all play along:
