This week I’m positively smitten with:
1. Cake Cutting: Not just cake cutting, but cake cutting done right. I love me some cake, which is why I got a kick out of this video that explains the “scientific way to cut a cake”. Trust me, we’ve all been doing it wrong, so this might help you out, too, the next time you bake one and serve it!
2. Veggie Juice: I’m very bad at making sure I get enough servings of vegetables a week. So bad that I’ve joked that my boyfriend’s family’s farm animals eat more vegetables (from the people food scraps) a day than I consume a week. All joking aside, my lack of love for vegetables always disappoints me. Recently, however, a smoothie recipe I stumbled upon called for carrot juice. I could have pressed the juice myself, but it was super easy to find in the produce section at the store. Your grocer may stock up on something else, but this well-known brand, Bolthouse Farms, can be found in many places (check out all their flavors!). I love the juice because they take the work out of preparing my own veggie juice without added flavorings and sweeteners. So I know I’m getting a healthy dose of veggies!
3. Seashells: Does anything say summer like seashells do? Not in my book! Seashells are small, one-of-a-kind treasures that make pretty decorations when displayed in a glass vase or spread out over a windowsill. Over the years, I’ve collected shells and beach stones from my travels. Unfortunately, I’ll never remember which ones came from where, but I know when I look at the collection, I’m looking at a life’s worth of summer and vacation memories.
