Happiness is Homemade Link Party #215

Messy Messy Fail - I am a total Facebook ad sucker - I purchased a packet of 100 succulent seeds for free (only paid for S&H).  I looked up on Pinterest how to grow them and was all ready to steal some sand from the sandbox (sand has the best drainage for cultivating the succulents).......the sandbox is absolutely frozen.  Not even a shovel could knock enough loose for the tray I was going to plant the seeds in.  I'll be trying that again when the SNOW STOPS (whenever that happens)!
Tidy Victory - Taxes are just about done!  I had every intention of doing them sooner, I have a service file them for us especially with having been in the LuLaRoe business.  HOWEVER I am sure our tax preparer appreciates it when I hand them in sooner than later. 

Welcome back to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party

Ah Spring, you are such a fickle creature aren't you? Warm one day, cold the next. I know some of you had a White Easter. We don't get that cold, but it was definitely blustery. All I wanted to do was stay inside on those days and eat. Speaking of eating (nice segue, don't you think?).... Do you love to try foods from different cultures as much as I do? This week we have a smorgasbord of 4 unique dishes plus a fun DIY wreath all with an international flair. Check out our features and share what you've got going on. I can't wait to check them out this week. -Audrey from That Recipe.

On with this week's features!

These Medu Vada  from A Crafty Homemaker are a spicy Indian Doughnut, made from rice, urad dal (black lentil like beans) and a host of flavorful spices. 


Get ready for Margarita Day or Cinco de Mayo with this Fiesta Wreath from Dazzle While Frazzled. I love all of the bright colors!

Just looking at this beautiful Thai Prawn and Pineapple Curry from I Wasn't Expecting That makes my mouth water. And it looks so simple to make too.


I have everything in the kitchen to make this Korean Marinated Sesame Beef from Crafting a Family so it will be on the menu this week because it is one of my favorites and now I can make it at home.


 In her description of this Nigerian Jollof Rice Jas, from All That's Jas, says "Puréed vegetables flavor the rice but are not visible, thus making it a kid-friendly dish." She gets me, she really gets me. Or more accurately she gets Sir Snubs a lot.
