Quick and Easy Lamp Shade Redo

lamp shade redo8

This lamp has had many looks.
The reason for this latest update is because, well, you didn’t know but with the last look, the fabric didn’t actually wrap around the entire lamp shade. Oops. :) I could only find the star fabric in a fat quarter so it didn’t wrap completely around. 

A couple months ago my mother-in-law found a bunch of the Riley Blake All-Star 2 fabric. I had all but given up on finding any so I was super excited that I can now cover the entire lamp shade.
This time I just hot glued to the seam.

and folded it down.

And done!

Quick and easy and I feel so much better that it’s not incomplete with a gap in the back :)
One of these days (say- when I’m not hugely pregnant anymore) I’ll get back to doing some bigger crafts.

Panko Crusted Tilapia with Garden Salad

You may or may not know that I love Fresh and Easy. I was there the other day and was browsing their clearance section and snatched up two things of Tilapia for $2 each! I never really had much fish growing up, my mom didn’t like it, so I really don’t know how to prepare it. I found this recipe in a magazine a while back and thought it was a wonderfully light and healthy way to prepare fish.

It’s so easy, you need 3 ingredients! White flaky fish of your choice, panko bread crumbs and olive oil. (ok – and salt and pepper).

Take 1/2 cup panko in a small bowl and mix with 2 Tbsp of Olive Oil. Season fish on both sides with salt and pepper. Place on a baking pan and firmly press the panko onto one side.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

For the salad I just tossed together what I had. Romaine lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, and feta cheese. It was really yummy too!

The best part? My boys ate it up! I didn't tell Andrew what it was, I just said it was yummy stuff with bread crumbs on it and he was sold.

Welcome to a new week!
