Five on Friday - March 5, 2021

It's Friday - the day we've been waiting for!   Who's ready for a weekend?  I know I sure am!  Before we head into a couple days off, let's peek at my five for this week ~

1.  Coming 2 America
Ready for some laughs this weekend?  Coming 2 America comes to your screen thanks to Prime Video starting today.  Can you believe it's been over 30 years since the first Coming To America was released!  That makes me feel a bit old.  If you've forgotten what the first movie was about or never saw it in the first place, here's the plot from Movie Insider ~
Set in the lush and royal country of Zamunda, newly-crowned King Akeem (Eddie Murphy) and his trusted confidante Semmi(Arsenio Hall) embark on an all-new hilarious adventure that has them traversing the globe from their great African nation to the borough of Queens, New York – where it all began.
We fell in love with Jesse Tyler Ferguson from his time doing Modern Family.  He and Julie Tanous have a cookbook coming out on Tuesday - Food Between Friends.  Here's the summary from Amazon ~
Best friends Jesse Tyler Ferguson, star of Modern Family, and recipe developer Julie Tanous pay homage to their hometowns as they whip up modern California food with Southern and Southwestern spins in their debut cookbook.

Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and chef Julie Tanous love to cook together. They love it so much that they founded a blog, and now put all their favorite recipes into a cookbook for you to dig into with the people you love.

In Food Between Friends, they cook up delightful food, spiced with fun stories pulled right from their platonic marriage.

Drawing inspiration from the regional foods of the South and Southwest they grew up with, Jesse and Julie put smart twists on childhood favorites, such as Hatch Green Chile Mac and Cheese, Grilled Chicken with Alabama White BBQ Sauce, and Little Grits Soufflés.

So come join Jesse and Julie in the kitchen. This book feels just like cooking with a friend—because that’s exactly what it is.

Cleaning your makeup brushes is so much easier when you use one of these cleaning pads!  Just pour some cleaning solution on the cleaning mat, roll your brush around on the cleaning pad and rinse.  Everyone needs a couple!

4.  Oprah Interview with Meghan and Harry
The much-talked-about Oprah interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is happening Sunday night.  There have been so many teasers!  It will be shown on CBS at 7:00 pm Central time.  I'll be watching.  Will you?

5.  I dare you........

Hope you have a great weekend!  We are going to give it our all to have a great one too!  See you next week.


  1. With the amount of spam calls coming daily to my phone, I usually don't answer but the above would be hilarious!!

  2. I have one of those makeup cleaning pads and love it. I am trying to make an effort to use it more often. I will be watching the interview for sure. Hope you have a nice weekend!

  3. I am watching Modern Family right now! Love that show.

  4. Modern Family and The Office are our go-to shows when we can't find anything else to watch. With all of these channels and networks, there are still nights when nothing sounds good!! I hope I can somehow persuade PC to put up with the Oprah interview. He is going to complain but maybe...
