1. Coconut Oil and Coconut Manna
I’ve finally made the switch from cooking with corn oil to coconut oil. I’m one of those who loves coconut in everything and can eat the oil plain right out of the jar (coconut oil is a solid at room temperature). The benefits of coconut oil are endless it seems (maybe that will be a topic for another blog post). The Nutiva virgin organic coconut oil is 100% less cholesterol than butter! Besides cooking, I’ve read that it’s great for hair, skin and nails. I now put it in my coffee. Coconut Manna contains the “meat” of the coconut which has been pureed. It’s actually the same thing as coconut butter, just renamed. This stuff is delicious! I eat a tablespoon of it daily. It’s also good in smoothies, sauces, and oatmeal.
2. Watching Golden Girls DVDs
This show is so hilarious and never fails to make me laugh. I think I like it more now than I did when I watched it back in the 80s. Maybe because I’m a golden girl myself now! 🙂
3. Rereading the Little House on the Prairie Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
I don’t think I will ever tire of rereading these, and besides, it’s fun reliving my childhood.
4. Mosaic owl night-light
I came across this little gem in Gatlinburg last fall. My sweet mother-in-law purchased it and gave it to me for Christmas. I’m loving it in my living room…. it has the perfect ambiance but is equally pretty when it’s not on too.
5. Latest pig mugs in my kitchen pig collection
My mother-in-law found this mug at Cracker Barrel. Too cute!!
My friend Abby, who knows I collect pigs, gave this mug to me last Christmas (we were both born in the year of the pig). I love the size!
