Easy Marinade and Glass Jars for Drinks
The Easiest and Most Foolproof Marinade - Period. As I was preparing our steaks for dinner tonight, it dawned on me that I haven't posted a recipe for quite awhile and that my super quick and easy marinade would be perfect to share on the blog. This is the ONLY marinade I use. Ever. It is perfect with steak, pork and chicken. Everything we've tried it on tastes amazing. It tastes best if you can give 3-4 hours for your meat to hang out in this marinade. Also, it tastes amazing on grilled meat. I've tried it on meat I've baked, but it's just not the same.

I'm excited to share these with you because some of these little projects were so easy and the first time I've tried them. I hope you'll want to incorporate some of them into your own home too!  Remember my Easter tree that I decorated with chalk painted plastic eggs ?? Well, I painted some more and even speckled them to look like robin's eggs! Aren't they adorbs?? Speckling them is so easy to do! Just take an old toothbrush, dip it into a bit of black acrylic paint and run your thumb along the bristles, aiming the 'spray' at the eggs. I laid my eggs on some newspaper on the floor and was able to do several at once. Some of the spots will be larger than others but that's what makes them authentic looking.  They look so striking sittin
