Odds & Ends

Pin It

1. You might remember a certain obsession I had with Friday Night Lights earlier this year. I don't know that I've ever been quite so addicted to a television show. Needless to say, I was pumped to see this list of Friday Night Lights trivia on Ali's blog!! Other diehard fans will get a kick out of the FNL related links she found around the web!

2. You guys know I love making ice cream at home, but I can't keep production up with the rate at which Ryan can eat ice cream. Since I'm always on a mission to fatten him up, I usually keep our freezer stocked with his store-bought favorites. I recently bought the Breyer's Blasts Samoas ice cream for him (I found it at Target), and snagged a few bites...oh.my.goodness. I pretty much had to hide it from myself in the freezer, lest I finish it all off before he returned from his business trip. It's coconut caramel ice cream with a swirl of fudge and chunks of samoa cookies! I'll be recreating this next year during Girl Scout Cookie season!

3. Calling all parents, parents-to-be, and anyone else knowledgeable about all things baby! Ryan and I are starting to think about our baby registry and are a tad bit overwhelmed trying to figure out what we'll need come February! I bought the above book which has been helpful (albeit, an OVERLOAD of information), but I'd love any thoughts from readers...baby must haves? What did you have and not need? I can't promise we'll take your advice, but I'd love to hear it ;)

4. I've been digging in the archives for some recipes lately, eager to give life to some of my old favorites. One such favorite? Golden Graham S'Mores Bars! I haven't made them in way too long and purposely had to make them for a church picnic so I wouldn't be tempted to eat the whole pan! (oooh, and these bars make me think of last year's Chocolate Covered S'Mores on a Stick!!! Another fun recipe!)
