Mail Center-$1.99

My husband leaves mail EVERYWHERE.
So I'm making a mail center.

 I am using these things.
1. An unfinished window box from Michael's clearance section-$1.99
2. Paint stirrers from the painting we just did in the living room-$0
3. Scrap piece of floor trim found in the basement-$0

The floor trim has two flat sides.

The window box sits at an angle--fine for flowers, bad for mail.

So I'm gonna use wood glue to put this little cutie inside the window box and create a surface for the mail to sit upon.

 Here's the finished product.

In all her glory!
These pieces are just tucked in there with a little wood glue.

Leftover Corn on the Cob Wrap (Vegetarian, Low-fat)

CORN ON THE COB!!! Right? 
But reheating it always makes it dull and lifeless. 
Here's something you can whip up that will put some spring in its step again.
You'll need:
And one low-carb wrap, whatever brand you like. Also, the taco seasoning and cheese can be whatever brand you like. You can even make your own seasoning from scratch if you don't have any in your pantry.

1. Spray a 12" pan with cooking spray and put on low heat.

2. Lay your empty wrap in the pan.

3. Shave off all the corn from the cob and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Add 1/2 cup of the diced tomatoes and 1 tsp of taco seasoning. Mix well. Microwave, covered, for 1-2 minutes.

4. Place corn mixture in the pan on top of your wrap. Sprinkle with cheese and cover.

5. Heat the chik'n patty as directed. Cut into strips and lay, lengthwise, in your wrap.

6. The bottom of the wrap should be nice and crispy now so scoop 'er out and enjoy!
