Some weeks my kitchen is the hot spot, new recipes are flying out of the oven and the dishes are forever dirty. Other weeks, it's like tumble weeds are passing through, not to say I'm serving up packaged food or premade meals, just that the creativity and motivation aren't there.
When I have those tumble weed weeks, my blog sits here begging to be updated and I kick myself because I have nothing to give it. I needed something to keep me writing, keep me posting and keep you entertained (hopefully!)
I am always checking out other blogs, new recipes, random videos, product reviews and I'm forever trying new products! Since I have found a lot of these blogs, recipes, products, etc. from other peoples suggestions, I want to do the same.
I'd like to share with you, weekly, the fun and interesting things I've come across and hope that they'll inspire you, make you laugh, give you a good read or just help you pass the time until work is over... I mean...I don't browse while at work... what?
Here we go!!!
What I am loving right now....
Strawberry Jam Oatmeal Bars!
Totally made these, they were delicious! I just recently came across Megan's site and am loving it! Great recipes and beautiful pictures!
Desert Essence Coconut Shampoo
I keep buying new shampoos and conditioners but I always come back to this. The smell is AMAZING! For an organic shampoo it lathers sooo well, it is gluten free, vegan friendly and there is a long list of bad things it doesn't have, which i LOVE! (Can be found at health food stores, in the natural section at the grocery store, Wal-mart and Zellers.)
Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution
I love Jamie Oliver for many reasons, one big one is the work he is doing to bring awareness to childhood obesity and what we can do to stop it. He has a television series call Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and now he has made a Food Revolution Day - May 19, take a stand for better food! Follow the link to learn more!!
Speaking of Jamie... this pasta is on my hit list!! I've been prepared to make this all week and haven't got to it yet, I looooveee pasta... maybe tonight??
Polenta - a must try!
My New Roots is one of my new favourite blogs to visit! It is so fresh and Sarah is so knowledgeable. When I read her blog, I learn... and I LOVE that and her for sharing all she knows. I have never tried polenta but her Spring Spirit Polenta makes me want to dive right in. I will try it. I must.
And we'll end this post with something funny! The broken goat and turtle were my favourite!
Happy FRIDAY! Have a wonderful weekend :)
