Do you know what inspired me to make this herb butter? This video from The Chew, the new food show on ABC. It's all about how to save fresh herbs so they don't go to waste.
I had no idea I could save my herbs by putting them in water in the fridge. After I made this herb butter, the basil I bought at the grocery store lasted more than a week this way! I'm so used to watching my herbs wilt after two days in the fridge and eventually throwing them out, this was such a great tip. I will be putting my unused herbs out like flowers all over my house now!
Last week I had the pleasure of meeting one of the founders of Activity Hero. Activity Hero is new site started by moms, to help parents find summer camps, after school activities, and even party locations for their kids. Brilliant idea, right? It's super easy to navigate and I actually found a summer camp for Lainey on their site.
They are rolling out new locations all the time, so if they're not in your area, shoot them an email.
Happy mid-summer! Right now I'm obsessed with color -- lots of it! So here are my four favorite (colorful) parties of the week... A gorgeous strawberry lemonade playdate, a colorful book themed baby shower, an under the sea birthday with lots of creative food ideas, and a retro 1950's 40th birthday with an insane cake! Enjoy!
