I thought I might share a few of my favorite things today with you all and even give you a few reviews. I love it when other's share things they like or love and give their honest opinions on it. Doesn't mean we will all LIKE it or LOVE it but who knows? We might just want to give it a try. Right?
Since I posted a picture of a pineapple I do love fresh pineapple. I actually have tried to get in the habit of eating more fresh fruits. My husband eats fruit all the time so I try to keep some kind of fresh fruit around. His favorite is apples. I love fresh pineapple salsa with grilled salmon. Here is the recipe if you'd like Salmon and Pineapple Salsa.
Salsa: 3 limes or lemons juiced but juice 1 lime in a small bowl and juice the other two limes in another bowl. 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil. 1 tsp. honey, I use raw. 1 1/2 cups chopped pineapple. 1/4 red onion, chopped. 1 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro. I grow herbs so right now I have plenty of cilantro. Kosher salt and black pepper. In a bowl whisk together the juice of 2 limes, olive oil and honey. Grill your salmon as you normally would. We use a gas grill and cook it about 5-6 minutes per side. Brush mixture on each side of salmon as it cooks. We grill salmon with skin on so I brush one side. Next, mix remaining lime juice, cilantro, pineapple, onion, salt and pepper together. Serve with salmon. **I like to scoop some of the salsa on top of my salmon**. My man doesn't care for salsa on his salmon but likes the taste the brushed on rub gives.
Another thing that we both like are the Sandwich thins. I have been buying this product for a long time. You can get the wheat, multigrain, honey and etc. There are different ones to choose from. We like them all. Now when it comes to a good old BLT...oh it's white fresh bread all the way for me and my favorite white bread is Wonder.
I think I have shared before that I discovered the L'oreal Infallible eye shadows. I stumbled across this brand one day when looking for a cream eye shadow that doesn't crease and that lasts all day. I have several different colors and what I like about this brand is there is an eye shadow applicator attached on the bottom of the product. They have an array of colors to choose from though I am a pretty basic stick to a few colors kind of gal. Price is good. But, it does what it says it will do. It last all day. The thing I like most about is that for older women such as myself, it does not clump up and appear to have that dry look or painted on look. LORD KNOWS I need all the help I can get so I have found a keeper! I watch for sales ads from Walgreen's. You can often catch these on sale.
I love pretty nail and toe polish and I am a fan of reds and berries. Matter of fact I have on dark berry now. But, my favorite fall back on color for summer has got to be Cajun Shrimp.
Several movies that I would like to share and I know that so many of you have seen "I can only imagine", but if you haven't you need too. It is the best movie ever. Such a perfect reflection of God's grace, mercy, love, forgiveness, and redemption.
I think this movie got a lot of mixed reviews. Some excellent and some not so good. But for me, I loved it. To me a movie most often speaks to everyone different. For me this movie spoke on some realities of life whether we like it or not. But Kindness spoke the loudest to me. The truth is, all we really want is for people to just be kind.
For many years I have been a Cetaphil fan. With such sensitive skin it was hard for me to find something that I liked everything about the product but Cetaphil does that for me. I have tried Aveeno Facial scrub and really liked it a lot too. I did not see that it cleaned any more or any less than the Cetaphil. Cost: I actually get more for my money in the Cetaphil. But, for a change up, when I catch the Aveeno on sale I buy it.
And lastly, only so that you can have a good laugh today.....I highly recommend a good ole stop at a thrift store! LOL!
You know what they say, "another man's junk is another man's treasure". I truly don't go thrifting a lot and I take it by spells but I just so happened to snag a few treats that made me smile recently.
The bowl was 50 cents and since I have lots of dishes in this pattern you know that I had to buy it! The cute little white dish...Awe...I just loved it. Especially for 25 cents.
The white pitcher was 50 cents and I was NOT going to pass up those pretty white napkin rings trimmed in gold. 12 of those in a bag for $2.99. NOPE, I am not a big spender but it sure does do my old heart good to do a little thrifting. I recommend it highly! LOL!
And...you know I cannot do a post without posting something about my family! They are indeed my FAVORITE....I have been enjoying a few pretties from my yard. I have two granddaughter's that love PICKING Nana's flowers....even though I might not want them picked right then... So we made a pretty little bouquet recently.
This cutie loves my flowers....
And this silly girl.
But, I am just thankful I have these kiddos to share flowers with. Here's to wishing you a great day and remember,
Today, show a little kindness...even if you feel it's undeserved.
And....let a child pick a flower....even if you don't won't it picked. Chances are the flower will grow again. A chance for making memories may not.
