Its real

The bathroom remodel is real now. No going back. Kyle’s coworker/friend is here, things are coming out, noises are being made, and I’ve already been to Home Depot once today.

I think I’m going to live through the next few weeks with quite the tension headache. This is scary and stressful!

Roasted Red Pepper Enchiladas

I have been making an adaptation of this recipe for ages now, and I thought it was time to put it down on “paper” so I can always remember how to do it. My husband can’t get enough of them! You might enjoy these delicious vegetarian enchiladas too, so give it a go!

  • 6 flour tortillas (burrito size)
  • 1 carton of Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup (can be found in natural foods aisle)
  • 1 head of green cabbage
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1.5 cups yellow corn
  • 1 can of green chilies
  • Cumin
  • Garlic Salt
  • Pepper
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • OPTIONAL: Roasted red peppers (chopped and added to the filling)


  1. Chop up the green cabbage and onion into small, bite size pieces. Strips work too
  2. Sautee the onion until it becomes translucent. Then add the green cabbage, green chilies and corn to the pan and sautee them until the cabbage becomes tender
  3. Season the mixture with cumin, garlic salt and pepper to taste
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  5. Spray a 9×13 glass pan with cooking spray, to prevent sticking. Pour some of the soup into the bottom of the pan, creating  thin layer.
  6. Fill a tortilla with the cabbage mixture. Place the tortilla in the glass pan and roll it up. Repeat this step until you have made 6 enchiladas, and they are nestled together in the pan.
  7. Pour the soup over the top of the enchiladas until they are coated. The whole container of soup will not be needed.
  8. Top with the shredded cheddar cheese
  9. Bake the enchiladas in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the cheese has started to brown.

We need HOW much tile?!

We’re going to have to order tile this weekend to ensure that it comes in in time to complete the bathroom as soon as possible. So, naturally, we need to calculate how much we need.

It has been made very clear to me that I am not to help with the project, other than picking out pretty things and feeding my husband. This is a role I’m totally comfortable with.

But the quiet feminist inside of me is having a mini hissy-fit, and wants to prove that I can do stuff too!!! So, in secret, I measured the bathroom and calculated how much tile we’re going to need.

I’m keeping my numbers to myself until Kyle measures and gets us our official calculation. But as soon as he is done, I’m going to check mine against his and see how I did!

Bathroom Before Pictures

Here they are! The BEFORE PICTURES! You can see the horrible layout, which we plan to change, the ugly tile, ugly vanity, ugly light fixture, ugly clutter, etc. The only thing we’re keeping is our shower curtain. Well… OK we’re keeping our clutter too. But it will have a place to live by the time we’re done so you won’t see it in the “after pictures”. Everything else is going away!!
