I am going to go out on a limb here, and share something silly that I like – my old, worn pot holders!
I don’t care for big oven mitts, and most pot holders are too stiff to be worth anything when trying to remove a dish or cookie sheet from the oven. I have two old pot holders (they were passed to me from someone else) that are super thin and flexible, and I use them every day.
Burned, stained, I don’t care. They are probably my most essential kitchen items!
Does anyone else feel the same way about pot holders, or am I completely crazy?
I hate, hate, hate the dirty feeling when I get to the car after shopping. You know the feeling – you’ve handled lots of groceries or clothes that everyone else in town has handled, and you’re just dirty.
I always keep a package of wipes in my car and it truly is a sanity-savor! Occasionally you’ll find coupons for them as well, and I’ve even gotten free samples.
and while we’re on the subject, I really like those car-size Kleenex boxed. Genius.

I have a love-hate relationship with youtube. I hate all the stupid videos and hateful comments, but…
I like all the re-purposing videos I find on youtube!
Do you have any favorite youtube tutorials or DIY videos?
I discovered this really cute blog.
On it, I found this really awesome recipe.
I made it tonight.
It was so worthwhile that I am staying up late to post about it.
Black Bean and Corn Roasted Salsa
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, mostly leaves
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 cup minced red onion (I used vidalia)
1 tablespoon minced jalapeño
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 14.5-ounce can fire roasted tomatoes, well drained
1/2 cup black beans
1/2 cup corn kernels
the juice of 1 lime*
The original recipe called for the use of a food processor, which I don’t have. I just used a knife, which is basically the same thing but it requires more elbow grease. If you do have a food processor, be sure to check out the original post for easier directions.
1. Chop the cilantro, garlic, onion, jalapeño, and tomatoes until they are very fine. Combine in a bowl and stir in salt.
2. Add the beans, corn, and juice. Stir well and enjoy served on tortilla chips.
* I used 2 tablespoons lemon juice
Today I will tell you…
how much I like wine glasses. I love that wine glasses dress up any meal, no matter what you put in them. (All right, maybe not milk…)
Wine glasses (and candles) are two of my favorite easy ways to create a restaurant-like atmosphere at home. That, and good food, of course!
I am going to be sharing a post like this every day this week – sharing something I like/use and why.
The first think I want to share that I
like love is Goodwill! I love being able to snag slightly-used deals now and then, even though you won’t see me in Goodwill on a daily or weekly basis.
This week, however, I snagged two deals for $5 each:
and a Vera Bradley Lunch bag for work:
A quick wash and dry and it’s as good as new, minus the price tag!
What have been some of your favorite Goodwill finds?
