I love old windows!! I know weird right???? But I can’t help it. Look at that window…there’s a history behind it and I only wish it could talk and tell me it’s tale and all it’s seen. (I know it’s hung upside down but I like it that way)!!
This window was in the garbage down the street. My heart almost skipped a beat when I saw it and I jammed on my breaks so hard I almost flew threw the windshield. WHAT???? WHO WOULD THROW THIS OUT!!!! It was calling me to take it and now I get to look at it everyday proudly displayed on our garage!! The pots and pans were free at a garage sale last summer. I had plants in them (see here) but decided to spray paint them to add another dimension to the wall.
Waste not want not and I love my new display!!
Here’s an interesting tidbit of history from June 19, 1941. The round shape was created on this day in 1941.
A little history
- Original Cheerios® was invented in 1941 by food science innovator Lester Borchardt.
- Originally named “Cheerioats,” healthy, wholesome oats have always played an important role as the cereal’s main ingredient.
- Borchardt spent months experimenting with new ways to “puff” oats into the now familiar shape people and families have loved for generations. Not only did he invent the original Cheerios®, Borchardt went on to be a leader in finding practical and affordable ways to feed the world.
I love cheerios and make all sorts of different recipe treats with them. But that’s for another post!!
We call this dish pepper pot. Super easy and a nice meal for when you have no time to cook at night.
You can serve it over rice or add a little more broth and some barley and make a soup which is great in the winter (if making soup omit the cornstarch).
Here is how I made it yesterday before I left for work:
1 1/2 lb sirloin steak cut into 1″ cubes
2 cups beef broth
3 cloves garlic minced
1 cup julienne styled peppers (any color or variety or multiple colors to make it pretty!!)
1 cup thin sliced onion
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
salt/pepper to taste
Pasta or rice to serve over
Put all in crockpot and set it on low for 6-8 hours. (I have also thrown in peas or beans to add another vegetable to it)
That’s it! Easy!
Now on to day 19 of my 30 day fitness challenge 🙂
