Melissa's Power Salad

Here's the deal with my salads, as with most of my recipes. 
I don't measure, I just "eyeball" it as Rachael Ray says, 
whatever amount looks good for me and the family, I throw it in. 
If there's extra, that's cool...lunch tomorrow!
Here's how this salad went last night:

Two chicken breasts cooked in coconut oil, cut into bite size pieces.
A handful of bacon crumbles
1-2 small heads of broccoli, chopped
A handful of coleslaw mix (the kind you can buy without the dressing)
Two large handfuls of spinach, chopped 
Fold those ingredients together.
Then sprinkle toasted sunflower seeds and dried cranberries over the top to your liking.
Add your favorite dressing. I did Ranch.
And gently fold again.

Serve and enjoy!

20 Things to do with Washi Tape

Recently I bought a bunch of Washi tape from Pick Your Plum because I've seen the endless creative possibilities for it on Pinterest. Of course now that's in my possession,
I have no memory of what these great ideas were or where I pinned them among my zillions of pins. 
So that being said, I thought I would hunt down some ideas and create a post to share with my readers. Enjoy!

1. Take plain votive candle holders and make them fabulous!

2. Washi Tape Easter Eggs

3. Decorate your cords with it. 
Especially if you have many that are duplicates in your household,
that way everyone knows whose is whose.

4. Make boring old clothespins fancy. 
{Add a magnetic backing to them and they are perfect to display
your family's artwork on the refrigerator.}

5. Make your school notebook or journal the envy of all friends!
