This And That

First off, has anyone heard of Bountiful Baskets? It is a co-op that provides fresh fruits and veggies for $15 twice a month. You order your basket online and pick it up on Saturday at a location near you. We tried it out for the first time last week and it is amazing! The food in our basket inspired some of our meal options this week. Look at all this goodness!

Last night I didn't have anything planned for dinner and D was working late so I opened my fridge and took out a combo of items, some from our Bountiful Basket. I tossed shrimp, tomatoes, onion, banana pepper, jalapeno and bell pepper in a skillet with some olive oil, garlic and oregano. I wrapped the mixture in lettuce, topped it off with come BBQ sauce & cheese then BAM I had dinner all wrapped up!

Hate having your plastic bottle of liquid soap by your sink? I found the perfect pin-solution! I grabbed this glass bottle from World Market and filled it with soap for a much prettier display. I think the bottles are originally intended for oil and vinegar but what can I say, I'm a rebel. I am not sure what I'm going to do with the other bottle yet but I'm sure I'll think of something.

Mornings are not my favorite. The only thing I look forward to in the morning is coffee or a homemade smoothie using fruit from my Bountiful Basket. Lately I have been really into iced coffee because it is HOT outside. I hate how adding ice to my coffee waters it down so much. A few weeks ago I came across a pin that gave 10 uses for ice trays. Remember ice trays? Well they aren't just for ice water anymore. I poured in my coffee and overnight made coffee ice cubes! No more watered down iced coffee! I am going to try vanilla ice cubes next. I'll share how they turn out.

Sometimes men have a little trouble putting down the toilet seat. I found these stickers on Pinterest and thought I would surprise D with a little reminder :) They were really easy to put on and Derek's reaction was priceless! I originally bought them as a joke but I have no plans to remove them. I bought the stickers from this Etsy Shop

Keep Pinning!
