Erik the 'Maxxinista'

Erik actually asked to go to TJMaxx today which made me very happy. The last time we were there he got really excited when he found really nice jeans for $15 (orig. $90). They make his tushy look like a million bucks! Plus he discovered all the nice kitchen stuff, which was again very exciting for him. He may or may not have done a happy dance.

Our haul from today's trip included these pretty little oil decanters, so we made our own flavored olive oil! One is Garlic and the other is Red Chili and Garlic. 

1 cup Olive Oil
6 cloves Garlic (crush 3 + 3 whole)

1 cup Olive Oil
3 cloves Garlic crushed
4 Tbs. Red Pepper Flakes

* Heat the oil with garlic and pepper over medium heat for 5 mins - the garlic will stick so stir frequently
* Strain out the pepper flakes and garlic from the Red Chili Oil.
* Refrigerate

CAUTION: Both are extremely delicious!

My cutie pie being as cute as possible
We went to Target as well today, where I promptly lost my phone. Didn't realize this until later when we were home and the oils were cooling. After several attempts to call it and retracing my snowy steps where I took the dog out, I started to panic. Thank goodness our friend Sarah helped me sign up for iCloud a while back when my phone crashed. I was able to log in and track where my phone was. It exactly located it to the front of the store where the customer service counter is. Pretty cool feature!
