My Favourite Pins This Week
Chicken, rice and veggies- it all comes together in one pot for a perfect weeknight meal. This recipe uses a pressure cooker, but has a link to the normal way to cook, if you don’t have a pressure cooker. Hooray for easy dinners! Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
I was pretty late to the puff pastry party, but I am a convert! I keep some puff pastry in my freezer at all times, it’s great for making little sweet or savory empanadas/hand pies with leftovers. This is puff pastry dessert pizza has nutella and berries and could easily be any shape or size that you wanted it to be. Plus, it goes from a bunch of ingredients to a finished dessert in 30 mins. Not too shabby! Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
I love this idea for finishing a blanket (or curtains!) with a bit of colourful yarn embroidery. Super easy, and you can customize the colours to fit your decor. Imagine how lovely this would look with a gradient or a variegated yarn! Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY post is here.
I’m loving this sweater from the newest issue of knitty.com, in particular because it does a great job of taming variegated yarn, and the details of this lends itself to lots of potential modifications- a gorgeous cowl or mittens, a gradient used instead of variegated, and that’s just the tip of the knitting iceberg! Of course, the original pattern is also lovely. Pinterest link is here, and the original pattern is here.
Maybe it’s the new year, but I feel like I want to shake up the art on my walls, particularly the living room. I love the idea of creating a gallery wall, and this post had some of the best, and most realistic ideas I’ve seen. Maybe you are also thinking of changing up your wall art? Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here.
I’m a little embarrassed that it hasn’t really occurred to me before, but if you are interested in seeing what else I pin, you can check it out here.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! I hope you have fun, and are staying healthy!
