Five little things I loved this week:

Watermelon

Nothing says summer like freshly sliced watermelon, wouldn’t you agree? They have been so sweet and juicy, I swear they disappear so quickly whenever I slice one up for the family. Especially in this weather. But if I happened to have any leftover, I would make Barb from Creative Culinary’s Watermelon Salsa and Jessica from How Sweet Eat’s Boozy Watermelon Granitas with Coconut Whipped Cream. I may just have to buy an extra watermelon and hide it.

Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal

7-19-13 Five Little Things | www.kitchenconfidante.com | Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal
Now that we’re in the heat of summer, I have revisited this favorite from last July: Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal. It seriously is the best way to start the day!

Wunderlist

When I started using Astrid, I didn’t realize my new love for this handy app would be shortlived. In a few weeks, Astrid will be going away, so I started testing other To Do apps that would fill its shoes. My new favorite? Wunderlist. I still miss Astrid, but things are going well with Wunderlist, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to stay on top of things!

Green Tea

As much as I love my afternoon cup of coffee, I’ve been lightening things up. Tea has replaced my post lunch caffeine fix; I know there are more antioxidants in a cup of Green Tea, and it actually leaves me feeling more energized for the rest of the afternoon.

Good Brie

My sister shared this clip from The Catherine Tate Show – she thought it was a hilarious, over exaggerated, British version of my children and I. (I do agree, it is SO so funny. And I love good Brie.) I assure you, I’m not this crazy (I think).

Happy Friday! How do you plan on staying cool this weekend?

    Lol, I always seem to get through the watermelon too before I have time to do anything else with it. Oh well, I’ve decided some fruits and veggies are best just the way they are ;).

    I need to revisit overnight oatmeal. It’s perfect for warm summer mornings! I hear the benefits of green tea all around, but I so love my coffee. Does green tea ice cream count? I’m definitely on board with that. :)

    Hahaha, I LOVE Catherine Tate! I fell in love with her show while living in London several years ago but almost completely forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder, off to see if I can find it on netflix!

    I’m chuckling about your comment about hiding watermelon. I seriously hid my salsa. I’m with you though; just love the stuff though I must admit that peaches are getting jealous and it’s time to give them some attention.

    Thanks for including a link to my salsa but even more thanks for the link to that clip…I’m still smiling.
