- Green Beans with Lemon Pepper. I was introduced to this amazing combination by my sister-in-law's mother. It's as easy as that--cook your green beans your favorite way (steam, simmer, saute, whatever) and then just toss them with some lemon pepper. Fresh, tasty and way less calories than the butter I would usually use.
- iPhone "My Shopping List" app. This handy, dandy app puts your grocery list in order by department. Since I make my list by going through each meal for the week, it used to take me forever to do my grocery shopping---everything was on the list by meal. Now, I simple put the item into my list on the phone and Voila! Everything appears in it's correct category like meat, dairy, baked goods, fruits & veggies, etc.
- Bringing Up Bebe by Pamela Druckerman. Part parenting book, part cultural study, this book which compares parenting in the U.S. to parenting in France was funny, practical, and offered a little mental vacation to Paris.
- Onion and Rosemary Focaccia Bread. I made this from the "Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day" book and it is delicious.
- Sunny warm days.
- Bright Daffodils
