Let's Do Something Easy

Wow!  You gals are one fun bunch!

Yesterday's post about how we manage our finances as a couple really sparked some interesting comments and a lot of good conversation.  And the takeaway point is that different methods of managing finances work well for different people.  No right or wrong way about it; if it keeps your marriage happy, then mission accomplished!

So today I thought we'd lighten it up and talk a bit about your views on religion.  Or perhaps the upcoming Presidential election.  Or how about my recent Pinterest lovies?

Yep, the third one is going to win out this time.

Grilled avocado with melted cheese and hot sauce.  We've got to try this.

What a great use for mason jars -- just pop in some wildflowers (or a candle) and you're done.

NEED this dress.
I'll take the piece of cake, too.

I never get tired of freshening up our yard with new flowers.  Ranunculus are some of my favorites!  I have spray roses that are doing really well on the patio now.  My sweet peas did not do too hot.

Grilled cabbage with Worchestershire sauce.  We rarely eat cabbage, but I will pick some up from our farmer's market and we'll try this out sometime soon.

Homemade nonchemical pest spray for keeping aphids and slugs at bay.  Those guys love to eat holes in my pansies, hosta leaves, and mint leaves!

Balsamic roasted strawberries.  I think these would be a great treat to enjoy on a Friday afternoon with a glass of wine!  I'll top crostini pieces with goat cheese and the mixture.  And Ian will get the jams going on the outdoor stereo system.  Now that is a good Friday happy hour.

  1. Love the food pics! What is it about Pinterest that ALWAYS makes me hungry even if I'm not?!
    Started following you. :)

  2. Balsamic and ANY berry is my jam. I live for a good balsamic vinegar.

  3. WHOOPS submitted too soon. I had an awesome salad once that was super easy, fresh, and delicious - watermelon cubes, halved cherry or grape tomatoes, chunks of feta cheese, balsamic vinegar reduction. It's incredible.

  4. That avocado looks so good right now! Sweet peas are one of my fave flowers! They are just too cute! I missed your post yesterday so I'm off to read it and hopefully get some great tips regarding our finances when we tie the knot!

  5. oh my my. #7 has my name all over it! i'll join, ok?

  6. oh my that avocado looks ah-maz-ing! yum!

  7. I saw that cabbage thing earlier this week and was really intrigued! Ranunculus is my favorite too, along with peony of course!

  8. I didn't read your last post, mainly because I don't share finances! I wish I did and that it would mean more $ to spend on fun things like that yellow dress you posted! I will go back to it one day when I need it :)

  9. Thanks for sharing the pest spray. I have been battling those suckers all Spring/Summer. They wreck havoc on my petunias and hostas! I can't wait to try the spray. I hope you're having a great week so far :)

  10. That avocado looks amazing. I'm into Pinterest recipes these days!

  11. I totally get all my recipies from Pinterest now- links you to so many easy and tasty treats!

  12. Grilled avocado?! That sounds so GOOD! I'm going to have to try this. I have two avocados sitting on my counter right now, so this would be perfect! Thanks for the idea!

  13. The avocado dish looks delicious! I would pin it, but I'd just be adding it to my hundreds of pins I've yet to try.... : )
