It’s time for another installment of Friday Favorites. . . a few things that make my life simpler, easier, or just more fun and tasty!
1. Cardboard boxes. When it comes to kids, you just can’t beat a plain old cardboard box for fun. I recently received a 20×30 canvas, which came in a box that was the perfect size for a toddler to hide in. . .
In fact, it was actually the perfect size for a toddler and a four-year-old to hide in. My boys were entertained for hours!
2. Over-ripe bananas. My favorite way to eat a banana is when it’s just turned from green to yellow and there’s the faintest hint of green still in the stem. But when bananas start to look like this, it means a loaf of my favorite Marbled Chocolate Banana Bread is going to be baking in my oven. Seriously, it’s the best banana bread. Ever.
3. NeilMed Sinus Rinse. Okay, I’ll admit, it’s not pretty, but it’s been a lifesaver for me right in the middle of cold and flu season. It’s like magic. . . gets rid of those sniffles in just a day or so, makes your sinuses instantly feel better, and if you continue it even while healthy it can actually help keep you from picking up new cold viruses. And it’s not a drug, so unlike other cold meds, it doesn’t make you feel all foggy and groggy.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
