Huh ~ Why Didn’t I Think of That??

Here we go with another “Why Didn’t I Think of That” Wednesday, where I share with you some things that I saw this past week and immediately thought “What a cool idea! Why didn’t I think of that??”. These ideas have mainly been collected while wasting full days browsing around Pinterest instead of feeding my family for recipes, DIY & gardening inspiration. If you’d like an invite to join Pinterest, let me know!

THIS is going to be one of the first things I try – how to grown your own cilantro. I’ve tried in the past, and had it bolt on me when it got hot outside, and wasn’t able to harvest anything.

Looking for a great (sneaky) way to hide a key outside? Check out this brilliant idea! (knowing me, I’d still lose it though)

Feed the birds in your backyard with this super simple peanut wreath feeder! It is made using a Slinky and a wire clothes hanger! Too neat!

A genius way to store your plastic lids – Use a CD holder! Who would have thought…oh, I guess BHG.com did. :)

If this really works…it will be so cool! You can make a watermelon into a drink fountain! Seriously! How neat wouldn’t that be at your outside summer parties?

And to keep the bugs out of your drinks…use upside down cupcake liners with a hole  in it for a straw to go through. You can even do cute papers to match your party!

Oh, and how about some Campfire Cones? What are they? Well, an ice cream cone (gluten-free in our case) filled with fruit, chocolate & mashmallow that is wrapped up in foil, and heated on the campfire. Sort of like banana boats meet s’mores. I know my kids would love it!

      Thanks, Lyndsay! I’m going to have to try the cilantro one. I bought a plant last year, then the heat hit, and it bolted! Nothing useful off of it. :P This way looks more promising though…we’ll see. ;)
