My latest creation: super cute candy box refrigerator magnets!
Seriously, how often do you get to use crafting as an excuse to eat candy?!
Then I just hot glued the flap closed and hot glued a magnet on the back.

I made these delicious Chicken Fajitas (which taste remarkably like the Fajitas Burritos from Chipotle, by the way) by combining a few recipes that I adapted from the awesome cookbook: Jamie's Food Revolution.
Fresh Tomato Salsa
Place the garlic, green onions and tomatoes in a medium sized bowl. Chop the cilantro (leaves and stalks) and add to the bowl. Squeeze the juice from 1 lime over your mixture. Taste and add more if needed. Add a splash of extra virgin olive oil, then stir and season to taste.
Place skillet over high heat. Halve and seed your bell pepper and cut it into thin strips. Peel, halve and finely slice your onion. Slice your chicken lengthways into long strips roughly the same size as your bell pepper strips. Put the bell peppers, onion, and chicken into a bowl with the paprika and cumin. Squeeze over the juice of half a lime, drizzle over about a teaspoon of olive oil, season with salt and pepper and mix well. Put to one side to marinate for 5 minutes.
Cilantro Lime Rice
Cook your rice in a rice cooker according to package directions. Pick the cilantro leaves off the stalks and finely chop. Mix the cilantro into your rice, then squeeze the lime juice over it. Drizzle over about a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Stir well and serve.
