How was your week?  Mine was spent hanging out by the pool and soakin up the sun… oh a little working here and there.  Someone remind me of this post mid-winter, please.<br /><br />Wherever you are and whatever you do have a wonderful weekend and in the meantime please enjoy my favorite finds from around the web and beyond in this week’s Friday Favorites!<br /><br />Click the orange links to be taken to the original source.<br /><br />Favorite dinner: Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken with Asparagus.   I’m planning dinners for this week and this Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken with Asparagus looks amazing and quick!  Perfect for a weeknight dinner!<br /><br />Favorite flavors: Parmesan Herb Potato Salad.  Red potatoes, shaved Parmesan cheese, fresh dill weed and a touch of lemon zest.  What an awesome side dish for any barbeque!<br /><br />Favorite mouthful: Easy Summer Dessert Tacos.  What a mouthful of deliciousness – a super fun, laid-back dessert.<br /><br />Favorite bite: Greek Yogurt Lemon Muffins.  These put my typical rice-cake-with-peanut-butter-and-banana weekday breakfast to shame.  Light, fluffy, pillowy soft, lemony heaven!!  I have to try these!<br /><br />Favorite tip: Best houseplants for indoor air quality.  As part of NASA’s landmark Clean Air Study, researchers discovered that some plants do something extraordinary: They eliminate toxins from the air. So handy!<br /><br />Favorite frozen: Ice Cream Sandwich Cake!  Oh yes.  It’s not rocket science, and it’s not actually baking either.  But this is one of the best looking ice cream cakes I have ever seen… so easy, too!<br /><br />Favorite fun: Sidewalk twister- a simple way to keep kids moving, laughing, and having fun!<br /><br />Favorite new use: Waffle Iron Grilled Cheese.  Loving this new use for my waffle iron!  Easiest way to make a grilled cheese sandwich in under 5 minutes.<br /><br />Favorite fashion: What a seriously fun little summer outfit.  Love the tucked in jean shirt and mint/teal shorts! In fact, I think I’m going to use this outfit as an inspiration for cookout we have to go to this weekend!<br /><br />Favorite slurp: Low-Fat Copycat Wendy’s Frosty. 4 ingredients a blender is all you need for this spot-on, lighter version of the real thing!  I’m going to try a vanilla version.<br /><br />Favorite secret ingredient: Easy Cinnamon Rolls made with mashed potatoes in the dough – these are seriously the best cinnamon rolls ever!  I’ve actually had bread with instant potato flakes in them and it’s awesome… so I bet these cinnamon rolls are just as amazing!<br /><br />Favorite healthy: Spinach White Bean Avocado Quinoa “BLT” Wraps.  I don’t think there is anything that when you add quinoa that it gets instantly better… I love a good BLT (especially when it’s on this bun), but sometimes I feel like they can get a little bland…. add quinoa, BAM, instantly amazing!  I want to try this with real bacon.<br /><br />Favorite summer treat: Strawberry Shortcake Cheesecake – Layers of shortcake, strawberries, no bake vanilla cheesecake and whipped cream.  Yum!<br /><br />Favorite photo: Get bridesmaids to pose as they think groomsmen do and vise versa.  This is probably one of the best wedding photo ideas ever.<br /><br />Favorite furball: For all those dog lovers out there, here is a happy puppy yoga pose!<br /><br />Favorite find: For the laundry room.
