Matzo ball soup and some Sunday organization

Today has been a pretty productive Sunday.   My make-up storage has been bothering me for awhile because I had been keeping it all in a random basket.  Since everything was all just piled in there it was always impossible to find stuff so I would end up just leaving my makeup out on the dresser.  I saw the acrylic drawers that the Kardashians use on Keeping up with the Kardashians and really wanted them.  That was before I found out that they were 300 dollars minimum (they use ‘The Cube’).   I ended up finding a few things at the container store.  I got an acrylic makeup organizer for the makeup I use everyday (find it here) and then I got two clear boxes which are actually made for shoes to hold my overflow makeup.  I can’t find them on the website, but they were only $7.99 each.   I love that my makeup is now so easy to get to and to keep neat.

After my makeup organization, I did some laundry and tidied up my half of the shelves in our pantry.   Then I decided to make matzo ball soup because I had it in the cupboard after randomly deciding to buy a matzo ball mix a few weeks ago.

They were really easy to make with the mix, I just had to add 2 eggs and 1/4 cup of oil but from what I read I think making the matzo balls from scratch would be simple too.   I was tempted to cut the oil but I figured since I have never tried to make these before, I would stick to the directions.  I formed the mixture into golf ball sized balls and dropped into boiling salted water.

Apparently they are supposed to rise to the top of the water and if they don’t they aren’t made right (too dry I think?).  Mine rose so I thought I was good, but then they all started to fall apart in the water.

Even though they didn’t look pretty, they tasted really good and exactly like matzo that I have had before.   I boiled chicken broth on the stove (I just used bouillon to make) and spooned it over the matzo balls.

Not exactly a standard super bowl meal but it was tasty and easy!  Now I’m going to go eat some super bowl snacks, I don’t think I have consumed enough sodium yet :)

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
