Sink Skirt and a Recipe


Hey friends! I sure hope you are doing great!

It feels like fall here in Louisiana, finally…so

we enjoyed roasting marshmallows around a bonfire today :)

I thought, just for fun, I would share my burlap sink skirt with you.

It’s just a coffee bean burlap sack cut to fit over

the opening.

If you have been around awhile, you may remember

our recent kitchen remodel HERE.

I was using an antique grainsack as the sink skirt…

however, for Fall I wanted a little warmer look.

So, I put the burlap skirt back on.

And because I love changing things often, having the

cabinet left open under our sink gives me several options.

I just have a simple spring-rod in place…and I can

switch out different fabrics for different seasons.

Can you believe our basil is still growing strong in our garden?

I like keeping some near the sink for salads and cooking.

Not to mention the aroma :)

This is how our kitchen looks most of the time, if

I’m not cooking a meal. Just plain and simple.

Speaking of cooking…

I made up my own chicken salad recipe!

Can you believe it? I can’t either.

I am calling it my “Rustic Chicken Salad”

(I don’t why, I just like the word rustic :)

 Here’s the recipe, in case you want to try it:

6 organic chicken breast fillets, boiled & shredded

2 hard boiled fresh chicken eggs, boiled & chopped

2 small dill pickles, chopped

2 sweet baby whole pickles, chopped

1/2 jalapeno pepper, chopped

3 slices peppered-bacon, fried crispy & chopped

8-10 black seedless grapes, chopped

1/2 cup or more mayo

2 or 3 tablespoons spicy mustard

salt & pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together and enjoy on wheat bread,

with chips & crackers, or on a bed of greens.

I added fresh baby spinach & tomato to my sandwich.

(You could add or delete whatever you choose to

make this recipe your own)

Celery, pears, apples…but of course,

I think the bacon made this delicious :)

And before I’m off…let me ask if you are enrolled in

the Creatively Made Home E-Course?

The first week has been very inspirational! Go check it out!

Thanks for visiting me today :)

Have a lovely week!

Your kitchen is so beautiful, Becky. You and Mr. Buckets did such a marvelous job with the remodel.

What about the pig towel hanging on the sink? Have I seen that?

I also love the green bottles on the shelf above the sink. Beautiful pop of color.

And girl...that sandwich looks wonderful but I know it would know fit in my WW point range. It looks rusticly delicious!

Love ya bunches today and everyday.

it's so nice to see someone else not cluttering up their counters with 'do dads'...I just got done doing the same thing this morning...I have a corner on my kitchen counter that is perplexing me though...what do you put in yours?

love the range hood...that's awesome.

Heaven's Walk said...

I adore the clean, simple, fresh look your kitchen has, Becky! I never thought of putting oregano stems in water. Duh! lol! Your range hood is absolutely amazing, too! Love it all, girlie! :) Oh....and thanks for sharing that yummy recipe! I'm making it!

Glad to get an update, love your little piggy tea towel and also that basil looks so healthy in the vase.I am wondering if that came from your farm?

Hope your well
