Mr. Incredible's Window Sill Onions

I have to take a minute and brag about my cool husband, Mr. Incredible. He will be the first to tell you that his brain is a storage unit of useless random information. I think he's definitely correct that his head is a receptacle of random and unique info, but it's far from useless!

About a week or so ago, we bought some scallions (green onions) at Ingles. We chopped them up and used them in a recipe and I never gave them another thought.


A few days later, I noticed that Mr. Incredible had set a little bowl in my kitchen window sill. In the bowl was a little bit of water and the white pieces from the scallions.

ME: Hmmm... that's interesting. But, it's little and not messy, so I don't really mind.

I went back to whatever it was that I was doing. A few days later I looked at it again and there were green shoots popping up. And a couple days later, they were longer and growing like crazy!

Quick & Easy Sugar Container

I love coffee.
Coffee makes me feel like a grown-up in the  middle of Phineas & Ferb and Blue's Clues.
Coffee often needs sugar.
Until yesterday, I faced a small annoyance.
If I was to put sugar in my coffee I had to get the 10-lb bag down from the top of the fridge and scoop my sugar from there.

So there I was, little Miss 5-foot-3-inches when I stand up straight, straining to get the sugar from the shelf above the fridge realizing that if I didn't find something soon, this would inevitably end in a sweet sugary mess on the floor. The kind of mess that my child would spot from a mile away and dive into before I had a chance to clean it up. And all this would happen in slow motion while I'm yelling, "Nooooooooooooo!" Something had to be done!!


The Solution:

A CANNING JAR + PARMESAN CHEESE LID!
