End Cord Tangles And Clutter With Zip Ties

0 Comment

There’s nothing more frustrating than tangled up cable cords. Use a few zip-ties to keep annoying cords in check without damaging them! Follow the illustration. Loosely attach a zip tie around all the cords leaving enough room to get in between with the required amount of zip ties. Zip tie between each cord pulling snug but not tight (you don’t want to damage the cords). Cut the excess ‘tails’ off and you have successfully ended cord tangles. Repeat every few feet as necessary.

Found this on the internet somewhere and thought it looked like a good appetizer recipe to share. Now that the weather is cooler, this’ll warm you up.

Jalapeno Popper Wontons

1 package refrigerated square wonton wrappers
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
3 jalapenos, seeds and ribs removed, finely chopped
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Vegetable oil for frying
Coarse salt

1. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, jalapenos, and cheddar cheese. Arrange wontons in a single layer on a baking sheet.

2. Add 1 teaspoon of the filling to the center of each wonton (don’t overfill them). Dip your fingers in a bowl of water and run your wet fingers around all edges of each wonton. Fold the wontons over the filling, pinching the edges to seal to make a triangle and removing any air bubbles.

3. Fry won tons in batches in hot oil until browned and crispy. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with coarse salt. Serve warm.

Who says Christmas ornaments are only good for one holiday season? Grab a wire frame wreath at a craft or dollar store and start putting together a beautiful fall wreath. Take a florist wire and loop it through the ornament hanger and then wire it to the wreath. Start with the largest ornaments and get those placed first, Try placing them at 1, 5, 7 and 11 o’clock positions instead of the usual 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock spots. Start to fill in spaces with medium and smaller ornaments in a mixture of matte, glitter and shiny finishes. The finish up with a leaf garland or individual faux leaves. Add in pine cones or twigs or anything you feel is fall-like. Tie on a big bow in brown, green or orange.

Try your hand at Halloween wreath with black, purple and silver ornaments. Fill in the spaces with tulle tied to the wire form and embellish with bats, skulls or spiders.
