Cause to Celebrate!

Happy Wednesday! I hope some of you are enjoying some lovely spring sunshine. Here in Ct the sun has decided to take a vacation. She was last seen on Friday, expected return... no idea! Have had tons of rain so when she finally does reappear, everything green will rejoice! I have had to break down and fire up the woodstove again, so at least I'm toasty warm while we make our way through this very springlike weather!

Just a gentle reminder ~ if you haven't already entered my giveaway, you can do so here: Simply Inspired Giveaway. Enter for a chance to win a whole stash of goodies! I'm thrilled to see that I hit 100 followers, how exciting! :)

All Natural Lemongrass Household Cleaner with Refill

Organic Lavender Mist Air Freshener
 I'm happy to say that all of the time and energy I've been investing in my Artfire shop, Inspiration-Earth is beginning to pay off! I've been featured in two collections, one of mine curated collections was featured on the front page and... I made my first sale!! Yay! I was beginning to have suspicions that I was invisible!

I shipped out a bottle of Lemongrass Cleaner with refill and two bottles of Lavender Mist Air Freshener this morning ~ super happy! I decided to make a collection a day to get my name circulating. The "per day" part didn't last, as I knew it probably wouldn't, but I intend to get through the colors of the rainbow! I'm going to list them below, just because they're pretty all together. Please don't worry about checking them out, I only thought they would brighten the post! :) The yellow one graced the front page.

I will get to the blue eventually.... ;)

Last week I had a poll going on which tasty recipe to share. Both the Roasted Cauliflower and Roasted Potatoes tied for first. I'll share the potatoes first, we actually enjoyed them for lunch today, so yummy!!

Roasted Herbed Potatoes
6 medium potatoes (any variety will do)
2-3 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
dash of cayenne (adjust for your level of spiciness!)

Wash and dice the potatoes into cubes.

In melted coconut oil add spices and mix well. Pour over potatoes and stir to thoroughly coat taters. Bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. Stir/shake well, (should be browning on bottoms) and cook for another 20-30 minutes until potatoes are soft and brown. Serve hot.

This recipe will feed our family of 5 with about a 1 cup serving of potatoes each. How do I know this measurement? Well, I believe that I have mentioned before that we go at our food with wild abandon, and in the interest of fairness I use a measuring cup to scoop out the servings. :) So much for healthy food not being tasty... ;)

I think that will do it for me today. I received a wonderful package in the mail on Monday, but I thought I'd wait and share that in a post all its own! :) Right now I'm off to catch up on some of your wonderful blogs! Enjoy your afternoon!

Peace ~ Melinda
