Friday Favorites | Getting Started with June

Happy Friday friends!! This week flew by thanks to a shortened work week! I'm ready to kick back and enjoy the weekend with a few plans sprinkled in between relaxing! Linking up with Amanda to share some favorites from the week!



Favorite Recipe


Tofu is not for everyone and believe me, I don't normally like it, but when it's crunchy it sort of takes my brain a few more minutes to process what I'm eating which is why I gave in and ate this Crispy Tofu - instead of the soba noodles we changed it out for a veggie stir fry and added a little brown rice! It was delicious and super filling! I usually snack a bit after dinner, but I was stuffed after just one plate of this! We'll definitely be making this again!


Favorite Show


Last year Bloodline debuted on Netflix to sort of mixed reviews - I'll admit that the first season was really hard to get into, but about 5 episodes in, you get hooked. Over Memorial Day Weekend the second season premiered and we didn't have any problems getting sucked in! Over the course of 4 days we finished the 10 episodes in the 2nd season and I have to say it was way better than the first (in my opinion) - so if you haven't watched it yet - it's a good one!

Favorite DIY


I have been wanting to organize all my recipes in some sort of coherent way and came across these recipe binder printables on I Heart Organizing - all that's left is to get the binder!

Favorite Beauty Item

I have been loving overnight masks and just recently finished this one from Origins (also reviewed here) and as much as I loved it, I'm ready to try out a different one. I've tried other First Aid Beauty products so I'm really excited to get their overnight mask! One reviewer on amazon said the bottle lasted them 4 months - that's a pretty great ROI for $38!

Favorite Links

Hope you all have a fantastic first weekend of June - see you back here Monday for weekending!

  5. Good morning, and happy Friday!! I made a crunchy tofu recipe this week too, which was so random because I NEVER cook tofu...but I used zucchini noodles, which were also delicious!

    I saw that Chip and Joanna link on Facebook this week, and I read and (yes..) fell in love with them even more. I hope that they stay strong in believing what they believe and supporting strong family values! It seems like there have been quite a few strong TV families (the Gosselins, the Duggards...) who started out being unshakeable, but 5-10 years of fame got to them and then things went downhill... :( I really hope that doesn't happen with the Gaines, though!

  6. I agree about Tofu. When it's crispy, it is not too bad. That recipe binder is so cute!! I love keeping all mine in a little binder (that I made in high school) lol Have a great weekend!!!

  12. I can’t get on board with tofu either… I want to like it, but just not there yet. Maybe I’ll give that recipe a try! LOVE that article on the Forbes women!

  13. Ok can I just say--I'm so glad you mentioned Bloodline because Steven keeps trying to convince me to watch it. The trailers and stuff didn't really pull me in but maybe now I'll give it a try! Happy Friday girl!

  15. I've been on the lookout for a new show to watch when the weather's lousy and I'm thinking Bloodline might be it. Good to know that I need to stick with it through the first season!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I loved Bloodline, but it was tough after the first episode to get into it and then it got so good. I am waiting to start season two but I am barely holding off! I also love Chip and Joanna and now read that instead of getting ready this am ;) Hope you have a great weekend sweets! XO

  25. Did not even guess that was tofu!!! WHAT???

    Also Chip and Joanna are the cutest couple ever, I love the fact that they seem so open on TV about their relationship and the fact that they are such great home decor/home reno people. I need them to come reno my house haha.

  45. I've never had tofu, but that actually looks pretty good! I need to give overnight masks a try, there's one that is sold at Target that everyone raves about, but I can't think of the name right now. Chip and Jojo are just the sweetest! Hope you have a great weekend!

  46. Okay, so I'm making this tofu recipe this weekend because I have a package of it sitting in my fridge, you're a life saver! I love watching Chip & Joanna on HGTV and when I read about their love story, I fell in love with them even more! I love random love stories because my husband and I met, you would never guess...at a bus stop! Yup, I missed my bus, it was fate, and that's how we met nearly 10 years ago, haha! Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend ahead, I can't wait to read all about it on Monday, beautiful!

  60. I'm definitely not a tofu fan either, and you're right, mostly because of the consistency. I will consider giving this one a try, for sure! Have a great weekend!

  61. That tofu does look/sound good!!! So does that mask! I just adore the Gaines, they are so darn cute and I love their show! I feel the same way about Bloodline, it was slow getting in to but now I have to know what happens! Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I prefer tofu when its super crispy too! I just can't eat it when its soft - or in big chunks!

    Stopping over from the link up. Hope you can hop by my blog as well!

  79. Another amazing way to eat tofu, is after it's crispy, ground it up. Kind of like you would ground beef. Put it on tacos with some peppers, and you'll be in heaven! I'm so behind in blogging, but I hope you had a wonderful weekend! (:

    ReplyDelete
  80. That recipe sounds amazing, I've never had crispy tofu, but it sounds so good!! I started Bloodline, but honestly it was exactly what you said, hard to get into at first...now after reading this I will try again and give it a chance and get past episode 5 to hopefully get into it!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I need to watch Bloodline! I keep hearing good things! Also, that tofu recipe looks delicious! And, yes to Chip & Jo's love story! xo, Champagne&Suburbs
