just call me "bins"

1. how to keep your fridge from smelling like onions:
TIN FOIL.
forget the plastic bags.
just wrap it up in foil.
you're welcome.
(thank you stacy beck)
...
2. how to make a gourmet meal that your kids will NOT like as much as spaghetti and meatball night.
but that you and your body WILL love more.
i promise.
(i squeezed limes over the veggies before broiling, with sea salt and oregano.
HOLY MOLY ONIONS.
amazing.)
...
-MENU-
broiled shrimp,

white rice
broiled veggies, seasoned and EVOO'd
{EVOO'd=extra virgin olive oil}
...
start to finish: 30 minutes
not joking.
clean up was even faster.

AND
in case you were wondering about
MY LIST
on saturday..
sean saw it when he came home from his morning patients.
said he almost cried.
then he laughed b/c he thought i was crazy.
then i smiled
and i told him it was more of a 6 month list,
not a one day list.
(even though i was secretly hoping we would get to everything)
but hot dog,
we finished almost everything on it.
{inset shock and amazement here}
and at 9pm that night we laid on the couch declaring we had most definitely overdone it.
i couldn't walk.
like really.
i had to use the walls for support and walked like a bent over 93 year old.
sean laughed at me.
and said it was b.c i looked so cute hobbling around.
i think i probably just looked ridiculous.
 have mercy,
it felt good to get it all done though.
REALLY GOOD.
NEXT SATURDAY:
basement.
dun
dun
dun
{i bought extra bins}
