Odds & Ends

Pin It

1. The Tire-Swing Dimension. Food for thought.

2. I'm really loving this Oxo Can Opener. Oxo didn't send it to me or ask me to blog about it, but I recently purchased it after our super dinky cheap one lost its ability to open cans. Convenient, right? This one is great though--still inexpensive and incredibly easy to use. I've definitely run into can openers where I literally can't figure out how to use them and I'm happy to say this one caused no trouble!
3. On vacation a few weeks ago I managed to read 8 (!!!) books. It helped that we had two 14-hour car rides and hours of sitting on the beach. I haven't had that much time to read in a long time, so I was sure to take advantage! I'll highlight a few of my favorite reads in upcoming Odds & Ends posts, beginning with The Fault in Our Stars. This was my first book of the trip and I finished it in a matter of hours, sniffling away in the backseat of our rented minivan. It's worth the read, especially if you plan on seeing the movie

4. Reader Rebecca recently made my Vegan Mango Banana Bread (posted 2 years ago!) and said her whole family loved it. I love that she used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil--something I need to try!
