David and I spent Christmas this year in Kansas where we had a delicious white chicken chili at Old Mill Tasty Shop.

Pozole verde usually has pork instead of chicken, but I prefer the taste of chicken so I went with that.

How to Organize Vitamins and Medicines in the Kitchen

Most of my organizing clients want an organized home not only because it looks clean and tidy, but also because it makes life more efficient and comfortable.  When I organize in people’s homes, I like to think of storage space as “real estate,” and one of the most desirable places in most houses is the kitchen.  The kitchen is usually centrally located in the house, it’s the hub of all activity, and because of this, it’s not just a place for food and cooking implements to live.  Having a dedicated storage area for medicine and vitamins in the kitchen can be a game changer for people.  It allows them to quickly find supplements and daily medication, and it means that first aid supplies are always easy to find in case of minor cuts & burns in the kitchen.  Also it’s a daily reminder to take any necessary pills with meals or before running out the door for a busy day.

I like white teeth.  Both on myself, and on others.  But mostly on myself.  And people I date.  I've tried using gels and lights and strips and UGH can we please talk about how that makes your teeth quickly become averse to anything hot or cold, NO THANK YOU.  Thus, I've had to take measures into my own hands.
