This is a little different than my regular posts. I just wanted to share with you guys, 5 things I am loving right now. I have not included any beauty, skincare products in this list. Hope you enjoy it.
The pop of color everywhere
Pretty flowers all around. Outside stores, in the front yard, back yard, people's homes etc. In the summer, these beautiful, colorful flowers are such a wonderful treat for our eyes.
Loving These summer treats
Cherry Tomatoes in the summer, picked right off the vine is a summer treat. My kids and me love cherry tomatoes. Buying them from the farmers market or picking them off the vine every year is a treat we look forward to. I have to add cucumbers to this list as well. Home grown herbs are a little taste of heaven too. Love, love, love basil.
My Hydro Flask
Perfect for everyday, or to take with you anywhere you want. I might be the only one using it to fill and refill it with warm water. The whole world uses it to keep their water cold, but I use it to keep my water warm. What can I say, I am weird that way! I have always loved warm water more than cold water. Hydro Flask keeps my water nice and warm for me to enjoy, just the way I like it. Available at Nordstrom in so many pretty colors.
My Tazo Tea
So many flavors and combinations to try from. I love Tazo Sweet Cinnamon Spice, Chai Decaf, Prickly Pear Cactus and the list goes on. Amazon has package samplers with multiple flavors.
This Vegan Banana Bread Recipe
I found this recipe on ambitiouskitchen.com https://www.ambitiouskitchen.com/vegan-banana-bread. This is seriously the best. I started making a few our favorites recipes dairy free, since my daughter's eczema seems to do better when she is on a vegan diet.
Thank you ambitiouskitchen.com for the recipe! We love it!
3 medium to large extra ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 ⅓ cup mashed banana)
⅓ cup melted and cooled coconut oil
½ cup packed brown sugar
½ tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons dairy free milk of choice
1 ¾ cup all purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
I added 1/2 a cup of vegan chocolate chips to the batter. We have made this recipe multiple times and the results are always consistent. I follow the procedure on the ambitiouskitchen.com and bake it at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes.
This concludes my list of 5 things I am loving right now. What are a few of the things you are loving these days? Thank you for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
