  • I could do this. I love dinner out of the slow cooker, and the kids do too. And I could put anything on a skewer and they will think it’s cool and delicious.

    In this case, they’d be right.ReplyCancel

    Those pineapple chicken kebabs look amazing! I already love grilling pineapple on the BBQ, but I bet my kids would love these with lots of veggies. Love the simple flavors of rosemary and oregano in this recipe.ReplyCancel

Three Reasons Why Everyone Should Be Streaming Netflix in 2015 #StreamTeam

    I used not be into TV shows at all. However, Netflix has helped fostered a love for them, and now I have several favorites. Lately, I’ve been binge watching Sons of Anarchy. Normally, I hate those TV shows (or movies), but it has a really interesting story line.ReplyCancel

    I hadn’t seen Friends in so long, even though I own most of the seasons on DVD. It’s been so fun to go back and rewatch them. Have you ever noticed there’s a Reserved sign on the coffee table at Central Perk? It was just pointed out to me, and my mind was blown.ReplyCancel

  • Anna

    You know I never got into Friends? Maybe now I can watch on Netflix!ReplyCancel

    Aww I love that they were able to put that together on their own with mama just helping a bit with the scissors :) I binge watch Netflix like a starving person :) Right now we’re working on Marco Polo and The Guild.ReplyCancel

  • Kait

    I need to jump on the Netflix train. Maybe I’ll comvince the hubby for Valentine’s Day.ReplyCancel

  • I agree these are excellent reasons and all the reasons we love Netflix, too! Sometimes I watch a little too much when I should be working… but hey, there’s worse things I could be doing. :)ReplyCancel
