Five on Friday - October 17, 2014

Oh my goodness -- I'm ready for a weekend!!  As I sit here putting this post together, the Cardinals are playing the Giants.  Win and they are coming home to play more baseball and we will be here to greet them.  Lose, they will be coming back to pack up for the winter and we will be here to greet them.  St. Louis is a baseball town and we'll still love our Cardinals (but it sure would be nice if they win!).

Here's this week's Five on Friday.

1. TV Food Maps App
Can't wait to use this beauty!  We love to check out Food TV locations when travelling and this free app will allow you to search by location, what's near you, shows.  It will suggest places or you can plan a road trip.  When the establishment comes up, it tells you what show(s) it was featured on, the address, how far you are away, description and reviews.  Cool stuff!  Thanks Eric Lemmons for showing me this one.

2.  Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix
Anyone else tried these?  We are in love with this mix!  It's super easy to make and the taste matches the ones from the real Red Lobster.  Just add grated cheddar, water and butter.  We get a big box at Sam's.  One pouch make 10 biscuits.

3.  The Judge
Good movie -- go see it!  Take tissues.


4.  Two Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins
The whole world has gone pumpkin crazy this month.  You can't get away from it.  So, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.  I was quite skeptical when I saw this two ingredient idea, but believe it or not it's really good.  Mix together one box spice cake mix and 1 can of pumpkin. Plop into 12 muffin cups and bake in a 350 degree F over for 20-25 minutes.  Done.  If you wanted to get creative, you could add in some chocolate chips or nuts.

Have a great weekend everyone!  The sun is supposed to be out here and I can't wait to see it.  I'm off with the girls tonight to an art show.  Hope to pick up some Christmas gifts.  Wish me luck.  :)
