A Fancy New Table!

Usually I don’t get all excited about things and I really never planned to blog about items that I have found and purchased… just kidding, that’s a lie!

Coffee Table | Fairhome Road


I LOVE finding awesome and amazing “stuff” {if you will} and right now I couldn’t be more excited about this beautiful coffee table find. I had been just thinking about building my own hairpin leg table when this baby popped up {thankfully! have you seen the price of just ONE leg? Oofta!}. It a wonderful feeling that I don’t even have to refinish it, it already looks perfect! I know Brandon thought I was a little crazy when I first showed him the picture of it but I know he loves it just as much as I do.

I enjoy finding new sources of wonderful home decor items. I could look at them all day long. Usually a good craigslist search and you will find anything you are looking for. I actually found this on the good old FB {facebook}. In our area we have many garage sales sites, one even has an app {amazing, huh?}. I am addicted… truly. Who wouldn’t be? Look at this table! {please excuse the unfinished room behind it… we will get to that on another post} If you do not currently have a local garage sale page for your area on FB do yourself a favor and create one!

Slow Cooker Beef and Mushrooms

First, I have to apologize that I do not have a picture of this meal. I wont even pretend for a second that I can make anything that comes out of my slow cooker look nice. It always is about the same color and just a mash of everything together {which is kind of the point of a slow cooker, right?} Anyway, I like to rate the deliciousness of what I make by the amount of food left on my husband’s plate but in this case you get a photo of what is left on the serving plate. Just a little of the gravy and a few random mushrooms/onions. 

Slow Cooker Beef and Mushrooms | Fairhome Road



  • 2LB Beef {I buy WHATEVER is on sale or marked at a good price}
  • 2 Cups Sliced Mushrooms {about – I usually just sliced up one of those small boxes of cheap mushrooms}
  • 1 Medium Onion
  • 1 Teaspoon Dry Thyme
  • 1 Teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon Cayenne Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 2/3 Cup Beef Broth
  • 1/3 Cup Water
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese
  • 1 Teaspoon Cornstarch

Place the first 10 Ingredients in your slow cooker and cook on high for 4-6 hours. Remove beef and stir in the cream cheese for taste and the cornstarch to thicken.

This would be great served with potatoes, rice or egg noodles. The paprika and cayenne add a bit of a kick without being super spicy but you can always leave them out if that just isn’t for you.

As always – let me know what you think and if you have changed/added anything!

Tuna Cakes with Dill Sauce

Tuna is pretty much a staple at my house, we buy it by the case. My husband will eat it right out of the can! A favorite lunch or snack around here is yummy yummy tuna cakes! I have made them a couple different way but really do like these the best.

Tuna Cake with Dill Sauce | Fairhome Road


Tuna Cakes –

  • 3 – 5oz Cans Tuna
  • 2 Green Onion – chopped
  • 2 Eggs – Beaten
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon
  • 1/2 Cup Seasoned Bread Crumbs
  • Salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients and form into 6 patties. Cook over medium heat with olive oil until brown on both sides. These are actually pretty dense – if that isn’t your thing just use 1 egg.


Dill Sauce –

  • 3 Tablespoons Mayo
  • 3 Tablespoons Sour Cream
  • 1 Tablespoon Dry Dill
  • 2 Good Splashes of Hot Sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon Dijon
  • 1 Teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt and Pepper

Unless you like to completely smoother your food with sauce you will have about half of the mixture left. I just put what I have remaining in a container and throw it in the fridge. It would be a good veggie dip for a quick snack.


I like to rate the deliciousness of what I make by the amount of food left on my husband’s plate. He will have to send me the photo!
