PINTEREST, PINTEREST, PINTEREST!Given the amount of time I've spent browsing Pinterest in search of the next great dinner recipe or activity for the kids or a delicious dessert....it's bound to happen that I occasionally find a 'Pin' that is so fantastic it almost justifies the hours I've spent pinning away things that may never come to fruition....right? Well - either way, I'm happy to share a few of my recent Pinterest projects that were huge hits!
Peanut-Butter-Banana -Chocolate-Chip "Ice Cream" SandwichesPure deliciousness in a simple treat - just smash some ripe bananas with a few scoops of peanut butter, throw in a few chocolate chips and then put that mixture between two graham crackers. Freeze them....come back later and you will have pseudo-ice cream sandwiches that you don't have to feel guilty about eating! Yum! Link to Original Pin
|Yum! Make these - you will thank me later. :)|
Sidewalk Chalk Paint!It's crazy hot here - but we managed to sneak outside a few times. Sidewalk chalk paint is thrown together in seconds flat. 1 Cup Corn Starch + 1 Cup Water....mix it together and then pour into muffin tray and add a few drops of food coloring. Take outside and hand paintbrushes to the kids and enjoy watching them stay busy for a good amount of time.
In case you are curious - this concoction washes off easily - even off cars. The kids managed to splatter it on both of our vehicles and my dear husband says "that's going to come off, right?"......wherever I originally saw this recipe hadn't stated any such thing......but I'm quite happy to report that it wiped off super easily. Phew!
Cupcake Sandwich!Ever found that devouring a cupcake is hard work? While out enjoying a gal's night last weekend, a friend was showing off her fancy cupcake eating technique- simply cut off the bottom half of the cupcake - plop that on top of the frosting - and you have a much easier to eat, still delicious cupcake sandwich. Love it - and also love that upon my friend doing this - it was immediately stated "I'm sure that came from Pinterest".......are we really to a point in society where all great ideas come from Pinterest?? Eeek - I like to think it just helps spur creativity........................right??
On my to-do list for this year is host a Pinterest party...........hope to invite lots of Fellow Pinning Fans over to make or create one 'Pin' that they have been meaning to try.........one of these days we'll get to that..............stay tuned for more fantastic ideas and projects - courtesy of Pinterest!
