Five on Friday

More details to come on my new chairs, but until then what you should know is that avocado toast is definitely worth a try. I don't know why I haven't had it before...but it's good. Real good. I mashed the avocado in a bowl and just spread it on top of a toasted piece of sourdough bread, since we had that on hand. I sprinkled mine with some pepper, but left off salt. So good! 

I'm pretty good about laundry, and I really can't  recall any major mistakes. Well, a few weeks ago I ran a load of stuff and washed our dog's Christmas collars in there too. Somehow one didn't make it out, and I ran a load of whites immediately after. Well. That was no good...everything was now pink. Including a brand new Biltmore monogrammed washcloth {part of a set my parents gave us for Christmas!} Everyone knows how amazing Biltmore towels are, right? They are the best. Anyway. I tried everything, even resorting to bleach and it didn't take out the pink. When I was in the grocery store looking for more stain remover, I saw this little box and decided to give it a go. Wow! Add it to a sink of hot water and the color run immediately dissapears in your damaged garments!! I was so happy!

What was everyone's favorite Super Bowl snack? No lie, I really, really look forward to the Super Bowl just because of the food! I love apps and it is the perfect day to pull out your best. We decided on nachos and kept the rest fairly easy with fresh popcorn from the Whirley Pop {best popcorn ever, ever} and my in laws brought veggies and chili. 

These goodness.

-Tortilla Chips
-Black Beans
-Pickled Jalapenos
-Shredded Rotisserie Chicken
-Chopped Tomatoes
-Diced Avocado
-Sour Cream

I broke it down in two layers {no one wants an empty chip underneath} and toasted them in the oven at 325 degrees until the cheese was melting.

I splurged on these new cleaning supplies and I am obssessed! Not only are they the cutest scrubbers you can find, they work about a million times better than what you can find in the grocery store. They are earth friendly, made of bamboo and recycled materials! Win, win, win.

Weekend plans include getting a coat of primer on the newly drywalled walls in the bathroom! Thanks for all of your comments yesterday! Definitely keeps me going and I appreciate that so much! :)
I think we are planning to make my husband's amazing shrimp as well, find the recipe here.

Linking up with the Ladies of Five on Friday!

Thanks for the color run remover tip. I just ruined (or maybe not?) a pair of boot socks last night! Found you on the link up. :)
Have a wonderful weekend!

Double-layer nachos. Mind blown. So smart!

Cory (playdates and prescriptions) said...

OH MY! Need to try those nachos! I just recently fixed some good ones, but am constantly looking for new recipes to try! It's one of our (me and the hubs) favorite foods!

Nachos are MY FAVORITE.
Those scrubbers are cute! Good to know on the Carbona.

Megan said...

Ahh! Carbona is my go-to laundry cleaning product! Their stain removers are amazing! It once got a hot chocolate stain out of a white coat that was a year old! It's so funny, because they work great, yet I feel like it's an obscure product that not many are familiar with.
