Funtastic Friday #342

Have you been grilling this summer?

Lois has a great oven baked barbeque rib recipe and rub.
She has easy to follow instructions for prepping your ribs, 
the rub/sauce mix
 and how to wrap them up in foil for baking.

I live in a hot climate 
so to avoid heating the house in the summer with the oven on,
I've cut the rib rack in half, add rub and sauce and cook in a crock pot.
Or of course get that rack of ribs out on the grill!
Place the foil wrapped ribs on a low temp grill
 or coal embers to cook it slow for a few hours.
Add a fun apron for your cook and another dry rub option by
checking out our "grill master" apron and dry rub with jar label {here}

Time for another week of Funtastic Friday!
One of the best link parties around!

Welcome to Funtastic Friday #341
We've had a great number of posts recently, keep telling your friends.

Last week Jen shared her recipe for a simple apple and cream cheese ring.
I'm thinking this will be just the perfect dessert at our family reunion. 

Another crowd pleaser is our S'mores in a bag
Kids love it!

 We ordered some peaches from Georgia for Father's Day to get the real deal.

They were so good!

Carol has a prosciutto wrapped peach appetizer recipe that is a must try.

Have not ever seen this combo but is sounds delish!

Carrie has an easy appetizer fruit dip 
that would be great for the kids to whip up to go with summer fruit.

Let's get right to this week's Funtastic Friday!

Midway through summer and even shorter if you have year round school.
Add your links of summer fun and projects!

 Happy 4th of July weekend!

Have some fun with family, friends and fireworks!

I love summer salads and Claire's Italian Orzo Pasta fits the bill.
So fun that she layered it in a jar!
Portable for us to take along at a 4th of July picnic. 

Summer is the best time to get in some reading.
Whether on vacation or at home relaxing on the weekend
a new book is a must.

Summer Booklist

 It's sweet summertime!

And time to get a good book to read on vacation,

or in town to break up the daily grind.

We've asked the "readers" in our family to give us a few of their favorites.

Funtastic Friday #338

 Welcome back to Funtastic Friday!

Summer is the time for a little R&R and a good book!

What do you have on your summer reading list?

I loved getting my kids involved in summer book clubs. 

A little motivation to read with a prize at the end.

 Gotta have a fun bookmark for all your summer reads

like Julie's felt cactus or our printable Harry Potter bookmarks.

You can find our booklist with some of our favorites for teens & tweens {here} and {here}

plus some for young adults and young at heart {here}

Funtastic Friday #337

 It's time for some summer fun in the backyard!

We've been pulling weeds and trimming bushes.

Setting up hammocks, volleyball nets and cleaning out the pool.

It's always fun to have a few extra games on hand for the kids & teens.

Julie has the 411 on making these denim and floral bean bags, 

plus a cute draw string bag to hold them. 

Great for corn hole, knocking down stacked cans, tag, etc.

We've got the instructions to make your own Super Size Jenga

A size up from the regular game. A good size to transport around.

The kids have loved playing the game

 and littles love to just build things with the pieces.

 Enjoy your Memorial Weekend!

Add some red, white and blue to your BBQ table in mason jars
inside a fun chalk painted crate.
Megan upcycled this one with an old wooden cd crate.

Our painted mason jars would be perfect tucked in that crate container.

If you're looking for a patriotic bowl or container for this weekend's festivities,

but don't want to spend a lot,

jazz up a dollar store bowl! 
We've got the 411 on this easy project {here}

It's time to check out all your links at Funtastic Friday!

We'd especially like to see your ideas for the outdoors, summer, Father's Day and anything patriotic.

Funtastic Friday #332

Always on the look-out for crock pot recipes.
So helpful when I'm working and can come home with dinner made.
Also love how it doesn't heat up your kitchen like the oven does in the summer.

Arlene has a great Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe for the crock pot.
Trying this one out this week!

Graduation is almost upon us.
And thank goodness most of the kids are having some sort of in person graduation this year!
I really hope the area you live in offers this to their grads.
Make it special with our printable graduation subway art.
Print as an 8x10 or mini for treat bag toppers.
You can find more graduation ideas {here}

Nothing like ending your week (or beginning your weekend) with a link party!

 TGIF....I was ready for the weekend last Monday!

Craving light summer pasta salads and Jen's looks scrumptious!

It was teacher appreciation week, 
if you missed it, 
you can still do something special for your teacher. 
What a crazy year for teaching and learning. 
With so many challenges,
kids, teachers and at home caregivers who had to become teachers, 
mostly over Zoom.
They all deserve a pat on the back and something special.
Attach our thanks for helping me GROW this year tag
on a plant, gift card or other special treat for your teacher!

Let's get right to Funtastic Friday!

 I hope you are ready to party .

It's been said  that this is the best on the web for DIY inspiration!
I agree.

Funtastic Friday #330

 I love a good make-over

and organizational clean out.

Angela just organized her laundry room into such a pretty space.
Love those floating wood shelves and all the cute organizational containers.
This is one place on the list of rooms in my house that needs to be updated and refreshed. 
Saving some of these ideas for when I finally get to it!

A few years back we organized our little pantry..
It was so nice to get everything in a place and sorted
with some easy tips and supplies.
Like these wood crate storage bins with wheels
and a pretty apron hook.

In fact, stay tuned for our pantry remodel
that was just completed. 
So excited for some extra reconfiguration of storage space!
We'll be posting all about it soon. 

Let's get to this week's link party!
The best on the web for DIY inspiration!
I'm especially looking forward to your Mother's Day and Graduation ideas. ;)

So cleaver, I love it!

Another snack idea or perfect party favor
