The Best Homemade Honey-Mustard Sauce!!

My choice of dipping sauce for my grilled or baked chicken is Honey Mustard Sauce.  Now ... I'm not talking about the sauce you buy in the store or get at the fast food places ... no,  I'm talking homemade!  It is so easy to make and much healthier.

It tastes so much better than store bought and like I said it is so much healthier too.

Made with two simple ingredients you probably already have in your pantry ... Dijon mustard and honey.

For this recipe you'll need 1/2 cup Dijon mustard and 1/2 cup honey.  That's it!!  I like dark honey and the color of your final sauce will vary based on the color of honey you use.  I like the Great Value brand of Dijon mustard and dark local honey.  I think you'll agree that it's quite delicious.

Fall Living Room

With the "just right" fall temperatures here in North Carolina,  I'm sorry to see the weekend come to a close.  It's been absolutely wonderful lately and the temperature is to hold steady for the upcoming week.  While I was working on the living room decor ... I broke the glass to a frame that was going to house a beautiful printable that I found at Silver Pennies.  I have yet to find just the right replacement for that free printable so I will not be showing the entire living room.

While not a whole lot is in the room the use of the vivid fall colors bring the room alive!

I kept my painted pumpkins in the platter and placed a large black lantern with an aromatic "pumpkin" scented candle over a table runner that matches the gingham curtains in the room.

Shopped the house for seasonal throw pillows.

Still use the wrought iron clock behind the sofa but it is now sporting a new shade of black instead of brown.

I made a new shade for the lamp... or I should say I recovered it with a small checked fabric.  I accidentally deleted the photos for the tutorial of how I made them but maybe will redo them in the future and be more careful as not to make that mistake in the future.

And see that ugly hole in the wall that is somewhat disguised by some lovely black gingham curtains?  I dislike that part of the living room very much to say the least.

Someday I will paint the matching end tables that go with the coffee table ...

Have a great start to your work week dear readers. See you again soon.

What I did with a design FLAW!

Ok ... here goes nothing!!  I am so sick of builders putting these square holes that really in my opinion are nothing but a FLAW!!  And the one in my home is such an obvious FLAW!
A big black hole!!!
Well ... what to do ... what to do?  Why hang some panels I said to myself!

My last condo had the same thing and I just don't get it ... I think it's ugly and just poor design.  Do they run out of dry wall or something?

I had thought of making a faux window out of mirror?
but wanted an easier fix ... so I simply hung two panels in the hope that it would make it look better and not just a black abyss.

It's still a black hole but with pretty gingham checks on each side.
Much more tolerable ... I think.
Have a great weekend dear readers.
