Feisty Fajitas

Oh. My. Word. I just made the most awesome fajitas!! I couldn't believe how delicious these were and how EASY they were to make. This is definitely a keeper--we'll be having it again soon.

Feisty Fajitas
1 beef flank steak (about 1 1/2 lbs.)
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup taco sauce
1 tsp. liquid smoke
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 picked jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
1 tbls. meat tenderizer
8 (8") flour tortillas
1 medium onion, cut into thick slices
1 red pepper, cut into thin strips
1 green pepper, cut into thin strips
1 yellow pepper, cut into thin strips
Place steak in a shallow dish, and prick it all over with a fork. To make marinade: in a small bowl, combine the eight ingredients and stir with a whisk to blend. Pour marinade over the steak and cover with plastic wrap; let stand at room temperature for 2 hours turning every half hour before cooking. Preheat broiler. Lightly brush tortillas with oil and wrap in foil; set aside. Remove steak marinade and place in broiling pan. Toss onion slices and pepper strips in marinade. Broil steak 3" from the heat source for 6 minutes. Remove steak from broiler and turn to other side. Surround steak with onions and peppers in broiler pan and broil 6 more minutes. When steak is done, remove from broiler. Turn off heat and place wrapped tortillas in over for 5 minutes. Thinly slice steak and toss with onions and peppers to serve.

**A few notes from me:
1.) I only used green peppers
since the yellow and red are so pricey.
2.) I didn't have meat tenderizer, but I googled a substitute
and used about a tsp. of vinegar instead.
3.) Plan on needing more than 8 tortillas.
4.) I used pre-sliced fajita meat and that made this recipe even easier.

Making Notebooks

Recently I tried out a new craft idea~and it was SO much fun!! And extremely frugal, too. That's always a bonus, right? So here we go: 1. Take your basic composition notebook (purchased at the back-to-school sales for .99 each). 2. Go to your craft supplies and get your Mod Podge ready, along with a good paintbrush. 3. Look through all those scrapbook papers you've been randomly collecting and choose some. 3. After choosing your paper for the cover of your book and trimming it to fit, start *painting* the cover with the glue. Next, give the back of your paper a good coat of glue, too. (I left the binding uncovered so that I could use a contrasting paper there later on). 4. Glue it on! Remember to smooth out any air bubbles under the paper. 5. Flip the cover open and make a few cuts on the corners so that they will fold over nice and neat, then add a little more glue to the edges of the inside cover and a little more to the paper edges. 6. Fold them over a

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second c

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left
