Week in Review & Pretty Pintastic Party #195

Pretty Pintastic Party #195 Features

TGIF! I hope everyone had an amazing week and is ready for the weekend! We’re back with another weekly Pretty Pintastic Party, but first let’s sneak a peek into the week of This Scattered Life.

The last couple weeks, our theme has been “Show Me the Money!”

Five years ago, I bought a huge painting and it’s just been hanging out in the basement. I finally did a little research on it and sold it to an art gallery, (lots more to tell you about that). I’ve also been selling off any furniture that no longer fits our space, as well as winning online auction bids that I either keep or sell at a profit.

I played Bunco for the first time, and came out $10 ahead. Two days later I won a couple of small pots at a Superbowl party. I’ve been on a roll lately. I should probably try my luck at one of the local casinos before all this good juju wears off!

I’m giving my deep fryer a break for a bit and have been experimenting with my Instant Pot. Hard-boiled eggs are foolproof with that little beauty, which helped me decide to finally give Beer Brined Eggs a go. A few more days yet before we find out how they taste. Hopefully I didn’t screw them up, as I realized after the fact that my pickling spice was a “pickling concentrate”. Good chance they will pack a pucker. Tonight’s Insta clam chowder
was really good – but there’s still a bit of tweaking left to do.

I’ll leave you with a photo of the Ice Castles in Dillon, CO before we head off for our Pintastic Party. I promise to tell you more about it, and if you have a chance – definitely check it out!
