Five on Friday - May 29, 2020

Happy Friday!  Here we are, the last weekend in May.  Hopefully, June won't have quite as many cancellations and postponement as the previous few months have had.  One thing that isn't canceled or postponed is my Five on Friday!  Here it is for this week ~

1.  Sweet Magnolias
Last week I completed the entire series of The Good Wife (loved it!) and was looking for my next binge.  I found it in Netflix's show Sweet Magnolias.  It's based on a book series by Sherryl Woods and it's adorable!  Three South Carolina gals, who have been best friends since high school, maneuver through adulthood as they face juggling families and careers.  If you're looking for a show, check this one out!

If you've already been watching the series and just can't quite get enough, did you know there is a Sweet Magnolias Cookbook?  I'm dying to see what's inside this cookbook!

2.  Meatloaf Pan
We are still doing a lot of comfort food cooking at our house.  Last week meatloaf was on the menu and I had all but forgotten about this slick meatloaf pan we own.  It's the best thing!  The two pans sit inside each other which allows the fat to drain away from the meat.  Your meatloaf isn't sitting in all that gunky grease, which boosts the healthiness.  Bonus - The pan without the drain holes is perfect to use for your favorite bread recipes.  Click HERE to add one to your kitchen.

3.  Commencement  the podcast
Graduations this year looked a lot different than at any other time.  iHeart Radio has a podcast titled Commencement the podcast.  If you have a graduate in your house (or if you are just a sucker like me for great commencement speeches), take a moment to listen to a few of these.  I recently listened to John Legend's segment and it was great!  I'm looking forward to hearing more, especially the ones from Pitbull and Hilary Clinton.   


4.  Feelcare Smart WiFi Digital Picture Frame
In this time of social distancing and sheltering in place, the Feelcare picture frame would make a perfect Father's Day gift or a gift to yourself.  Anyone with the proper security can instantly and securely share photos and videos straight to the frame.  The touch screen allows you to set up the frame and view the photos easily.  Check out all the features HERE.

5.  Do you have a high school reunion this year?

Enjoy the weekend!  We'll be hanging out at home.  I've got some outdoor projects planned and it looks like the weather might actually cooperate with us.  Hope to see you back next week!

Linking up with:


  1. I have been enjoying Sweet Magnolias too. I have one more episode to watch. I'm hoping for some sunny weather this weekend as well. Have a great weekend!

  2. I do have a 20 year reunion this year but I'm supposed to be on vacation. Loved sweet magnolias also!

  3. I am really enjoyed Sweet Magnolias. I read that whole series way back when and I'm liking how I am slowly putting all those plot lines back together in my memory just before they appear on the show.

  4. Your meme is killing me, hahahahahahaha! I have a meatloaf pan like that and LOVE IT! Hope you have a great weekend!
