I have been wanting to post an update only with pictures as we have had so many things happen in the past two weeks. Of course, Christmas and New Years Eve, but one week after New Years Eve its my birthday, then one week after that it’s my husbands birthday, and of course in between life happens. So here is an update of our life these past few weeks as seen through my phone.

Enjoy!! xo

This is THE funniest story!! My husband bought 27 candles to put on my cake for my birthday. While he was lighting them, some of them started to spark, I questionned why they were sparking and he chalked it up to faulty wicks. Then the flames got bigger and were going strong. I tried to blow them out and we realized, they are joke candles that you cannot blow out! Needless to say, I panicked, this is the only picture we got and had to through raging flaming candles in the sink while the icing on my cake was melting from the HUGE flames. I was so scared while it was happening (I hate fire) but we now laugh at it all the time! haha

Chicken fajitas

IMG_1609
Since we don’t eat red meat, most of our recipes contain chicken. I try to get innovative with chicken, but it can be difficult without using too many processed foods. One of our favorite dishes is this simple chicken fajita recipe that request a handful of fresh products and some spices, I’m sure it will be a hit in your house too!
Here’s what you’ll need for roughly 6 fajitas:
500 grams chicken cut up
3 peppers sliced thinly
300 grams grated cheese (we like Swiss)
1 red onion sliced thinly
250 grams sour cream
6 fajitas (not pictured)
1 Tablespoon of oil for cooking (not pictured)
For the seasoning:
1 Tablespoon of Chili powder (less or more depending on how spicy you like it)
1 Tablespoon of Paprika
2 Teaspoons of garlic salt
2 Teaspoons of onion powder
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon of cumin
First, add the oil to one frying pan and cook the chicken. In a separate pan, cook the peppers and onions.
Once the chicken is cooked through, add it to the peppers and onions.
Add the seasoning and if you find it is hard to mix, add 1/2 cup of water to mix the seasoning throughout.
Once the seasoning is fully mixed, serve it with the sour cream, cheese and fajitas and let your guests dish up!
