Lindsay LipDub

On May 31st thousands (about 9300) of people gathered in my hometown of Lindsay, Ontario, Canada to take part in the World's Largest and Canada's FIRST City LipDub. For those who aren't familiar with the concept it is a video shot in ONE continuous shot and it brought young and old, locals and visitors and tons of smiling faces together in an incredible achievement. The day finished with the Concert for Change featuring Hedley, which I had the pleasure of attending with my amazing nephew!

Check out the Lindsay LipDub here

From my cooking wishlist!

I've always wanted to try cooking in a skillet, there's something just so down-home and comforting about it. Plus I think it opens up a whole new realm of possibilities in the world of food and can help to jazz up some of the classics. I certainly need to build up my arsenal of cooking tools and this beauty is next of my list. Any suggestions for what to cook first?

Banana Bread for Breakfast!

When the kiddos and I went to pick up some Minute Maid Frozen Juice with our coupons yesterday there were some bananas on the discount rank that just screamed "make me into banana bread!!!!!"

For those of you who regularly follow along you will know that I am not much of a baker but I have slowly and surely been working on my skills. I think half of it is just having the confidence! I've been trying out some recipes and starting to freeze some goodies from Money Saving Mom's blog and this recipe turned out great (I used a mini loaf pan instead of a regular loaf pan). Next time I think I would add a few more bananas and maybe some chocolate chips! Certainly makes for an economical breakfast...the entire bunch of bananas (on the discount rack) was 64cents. Hubby took two with him this morning!

What's on your menu plan for breakfast this week?
