Mac n Cheese for My Grown Up Self

20130319-182600.jpg

After a bit if inspiration last night, I came up with Cheesy Quinoa and Chicken! (Aka Mac n Cheese for my grown up self.) In college I lived off Mac n Cheese and had a real craving for it yesterday.

This recipe makes two medium sized portions and pairs well with a salad or veggies.

What you’ll need:
1 to 2 chicken breasts
1/4 cup Colby jack cheese
1 egg
3/4 cup of quinoa

It’s a pretty simple recipe and only takes about 20 minutes to complete. Just FYI I mix the egg in with the quinoa and cheese on the stove top, then stick the mixture in the oven for 5 minutes at 350 degrees to cook it through.

Car Care: Clean Your Headlights

Recently, I’ve realized how dirty or shall I say foggy my headlights have become. So I found this tutorial on Pinterest and decided to give it a try.

Here’s what you’ll need:

– Toothpaste — paste only (I think the cheaper the better)

– Steel wool (the article suggested a cloth, but I had a lot of grime)

– Gloves

– Bucket of hot water (not pictured)

– Rag

Here’s the before:

             

I just applied the toothpaste and scrubbed with the steel wool in a circular motion.

             

Once I felt like I scrubbed enough I wiped off the remaining toothpaste and poured the rest of the hot water over the headlights and…

It worked!

After:

             

Just to show the difference here they are side by side.

Worth the $2.95 for the toothpaste? Heck yes!
