TGIF (whoops. T): Pinterest Style.

Hey, it's Tuesday!  I totally wrote this post for last Friday, but because I am super awesome, I forgot to publish it.  So how about some lovely Pinterest picks to brighten up this gray, gray morning?  (It's super gray and on the verge of rain here- anyone have sun??)

This is so me, it's almost embarrassing.  My poor husband and children get tired grumpy mom who does not like being woken from a sound sleep.  At all.  Ever.

You know those really, really good cookies that are cakey and have the icing on top that all grocery stores carry?  Yea.  Here's a copycat recipe, which we may have to make today since I'm on dessert duty for Easter.  (edited to add: I did make these, and they are really easy, but the cookie itself was missing something- more sugar or butter, I think.  I'll make them again, but I'm going to experiment.)

Can we just ogle??  One of my dream ideas is to finish the space over the garage, and this is just giving me all kinds of ideas.  The windows!  The triple desk!  The pendant!  The bead board!   *swoon*

I know peanut butter-banana isn't for everyone, but it is for me, and I'm really interested in it in grilled cheese form.  I actually want to try this with cashew butter, plus it's got honey and cinnamon.  Hello, breakfast!

While I might not mount them this way (though I love the overall look), I would love to plant some herbs in Mason jars like this, just because some of them are floppy!  (Here's looking at you, dill.)  The skinny neck looks like it would add some support.  Since I want to expand the garden anyway, it may be a good time to give it a try.

Which one of this week's picks is your favorite?  Anyone else working on garden plans?  I just planted some seeds in pots with the kids- we'll see how that turns out.

    I make peanut butter and banana sandwiches ALL the time, but I never thought to treat it like grilled cheese. Doing this today. Lunch will be awesome.

  2. Yuuum. Did you make it? Was it good?

  3. Those WINDOWS! I love my new office space, but umm, its in a basement. I can't imagine having all of that natural light. GORGEOUS! And my favorite smoothie right now is one cup almond milk (or cashew or whatever), 1 tbsp peanut butter, a banana, and a little ice. I should try this sandwich!

  4. Aren't they fantastic?? I would love a wall of south-facing windows in a bright white room. I have to try the sandwich too- my current favorite snack is a banana spread with cashew butter and coconut. Such a great combo.

  5. Can you keep us posted about your cookie experiment? Because I know exactly the type of cookie you're talking about, and I love those!

  6. I definitely will! We're still working on the Easter ones but I'm thinking more sugar, more butter the next time. :D
