Shelter In Place Friday Favorites

Hi friends! Well this has been some kind of week. Wouldn’t you agree? We’ve made it to Friday though, and that’s something to celebrate. Friends, I know this is an ominous time we are in. No one knows what to expect or how long this thing will last, but life does go on. We have a new normal, and my intention is to keep this space a happy place where you can come and maybe escape for a few minutes. So with that being said, welcome to shelter in place Friday favorites.

With all this time at home, I imagine some of you may be taking advantage of that time and trying to organize your spaces. I just recently gave my fridge somewhat of an overhaul.

Lazy Susans are a great way to organize multiple spaces. This is something I picked up from my mom. We had Lazy Susans in our fridge and under cabinets when I was growing up, so I’ve always used them in that capacity in my own home. I have them under my bathroom sink with bottles of haircare products, etc… I have them in my kitchen cabinets with bottles of oils, Worchestire Sauce, Soy Sauce, Vinegars, Salt & Pepper, etc… I have them in my laundry room with starch, window cleaner, and other various cleaners. They are seriously a great way to make use of space.

My most recent addition to my fridge is plastic bins to keep like items together. Call me crazy, but I love looking in there and seeing everything all neat and tidy.

I pulled out my spring/Easter decor this week and used my mini felt boards in a couple of places. They are so stinkin’ cute and the perfect little something extra. I also put one on one of my tiered trays. I’ll share those soon.

Fashion Sneakers, Coast to Coast

Do you follow on me on Instagram and LiketoKnow.it? I share extra fashion finds on those channels that sometimes don’t make the blog. Recently I shared some fun fashion sneakers.

NORDSTROM RACK, COAST TO COAST

Retailers are bringing it this week with sales and free shipping. It’s unlike anything I’ve seen and reminds me of Black Friday. Nordstrom Rack is a great place to find things that are no longer available in Nordstrom. They are offering an extra 20% off already reduced prices and free shipping with no minimum. Take 20% off the prices on the graphic.

SHOP THESE ITEMS

NORDSTROM SALE, COAST TO COAST

Nordstrom is also bringing it. They are offering 25% off site wide (with a few exclusions). I have never seen them do this. I’m doing my part to keep the economy going, and placing orders left and right. HA!

I thought I’d share what we’re eating during our “time out”, aka shelter in place. Maybe I can give you some ideas and inspiration for things to make for your own family.

I forgot to take a picture of our steaks, #tooexcited but let me just say YUM-EEEE. I started making our steaks with this recipe several years ago and haven’t grilled them since. They are beyond delicious and as close to what you’ll get at Ruth’s Chris as anything I’ve had. We also had this delicious Panzanella salad. This salad is the perfect pairing with any grilled protein.

I grabbed a couple varieties of pre-made, bagged salads at Costco in preparing for our time at home. We love salmon, and I’ve recently started cooking it in a skillet. It’s so easy, and so delicious. I just put salt, pepper, everything seasoning (in a grinder form Trader Joe’s), and dill on it. I cook it in a nonstick skillet with a little nonstick spray, and after I cook the first side and turn it over, put a very thin slice of butter on it to finish cooking.

Last night we had burrito bowls. These are a family favorite. I make this chicken recipe for Cafe Rio chicken, and it makes enough to have extra for more bowls, or use in these taquitos, quesadillas, tacos or nachos. Here are the layers we use in our bowls:
Rice, riced cauliflower or a combo of the two
Black beans (I just warm up a can)
Cafe Rio Chicken
Shredded Cheese
Corn Salsa using this recipe
Guacamole (I make my own with avocado, cilantro, jalapeno, red onion, salt, pepper, chili lime seasoning, and lime juice)
Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt

XCVI Clothing

Wednesday I shared some more new fashions from XCVI. These pants are so cute and so comfy. Check that post here.

And because we can all use some humor…and there are a lot of great memes out there….

    Stay well friend. I love your fridge organizing ideas. We always have the Costco pesto in our house too.

    How long do you cook the salmon for? It looks amazing.

      Hey there! Thanks. UGH, I’m the worst at know how long I do something. HA! I’d guess 3-4 min per side…I just pull it apart with a fork to check doneness or push on it to see if it’s kinda firmed up. XO

    I’ve been adding bits and pieces of SPRinG around our home too, figuring we have lots of extra time on our hands. I also have refrigerator envy ! Yours looks wonderful, guess maybe that’s the next area I’ll be getting to this weekend ! XOXO

    Why have I never thought to put a lazy susan in the fridge?
    I am decorating for spring today and I am so excited!

      It’s a game changer!!! I love those things! Happy spring! XO

    Cleaning out the fridge sounds like something I could do during all this! I love those turn tables, I should get some of those for my fridge for the smaller things.

    I have those refrigerator bins and just love them. I didn’t know N Rack had deals right now, so thanks for the tip. Stay healthy and safe, friend!

      Hope all is well in TX. Yep, the bins are my new BFF’s. HA!

    I love that organized fridge! I can see why it brings a smile to your face.

    I love my lazy susans. I use them for my spices (organized in alphabetical order, of course), and many of my baking supplies. But I haven’t used them in my fridge yet…thanks for the idea, Lisa,
    XOXO

    Hi Lisa
    I love the lazy susan idea for inside the fridge! I need to clean mine out and I have to work on our spice cabinet! Home projects are happenin and we are putting down the mulch outside. Mmm the food looks good! I dont eat red meat, but LOVE salmon! Wouldnt you know I bought 2 things from Nordies before the sale!
    take care,
    jess xx

      Thanks Jess. My mom is a master at stuff like that. XO

    My bestie, who lives in Campbell, is obviously also dealing with the shelter in place order AND she immediately alerted me to the Nordstrom Rack sale. Maybe she is your other long-lost daughter, just sayin’! ;D That salmon looks absolutely incredible, and thank you for reminding me of the magic of panzanella salad! I hope you guys are hanging in there! xo

    PS: I have not forgotten about R+F! I’m just not as far through my current products as I thought I was. 🙁

    • March 31, 2020 / 11:13 am

      No rush sweet pea! I’m here whenever you’re ready. I wonder how long this mess will last? Keep the faith!!! XOXO

  12. March 22, 2020 / 2:24 pm

    All of your food is making me hungry! I love panzenella salad, especially in the summer when I can add fresh basil!

  13. March 22, 2020 / 7:18 pm

    Mmm, have a tab open for the steak recipe. Can’t wait to check it out. Going to order some plastic bins for the frig. Had thought about getting some when I was spring cleaning the kitchen. Seeing yours in place convinced me. I would like my sour cream, cottage cheese, yogurt, etc. in a bin that I can pull out.

    Stay healthy, friend!!

    • March 31, 2020 / 11:13 am

      I’m loving having all the like things together. XO

  14. March 23, 2020 / 6:35 am

    Those lazy Susan’s in the fridge are such a good idea! I love panzanella salad! Checking out that recipe!

    I like the idea of the plastic drawer holders in the fridge. Our apartment fridge seems so short on storage, that way I could stack things w/o tip-overs. I’m going to have to do a burrito bowl, I feel like I make the same things over and over at this point.

    • March 31, 2020 / 11:13 am

      I just bought some for Katie’s fridge too. She’s got the same problem. XO
