Kelly the Culinarian: Three Things Thursday

Three Things Thursday

1. Napoleon's vast and varied contributions to the cuteness factor on this blog are really paying off. WellPet sent him Old Mother Hubbard Jingle Jangle P-Nuttiers and he was ready to learn how to empty the dishwasher to earn one. They're on the smaller side, too, which I appreciate as Napoleon is also on the smaller side.

2. My holiday shopping is done, I just have to finish assembling and wrapping stuff, but I got an e-mail this week that would make a great gift idea. RawSpiceBar is a brand new subscription service that send three spice blends monthly for $6 a pop, and offers three-, six- and 12-month subscriptions. I think it's cool because they're sending out spices from around the world that aren't quite popular in America yet, as well as suggestions on how to use them. It's a pretty easy gift to spice up dinner for the cooks in your life (see what I did there?).

3. Does anyone know how I can display my pressed pennies? I've been picking these up everywhere I go since I was a kid and have quite an expansive collection these days. They're currently in my wallet, which is a shame since they speak a story of all the places I've traveled to and things I've seen throughout the years.

Regarding the pennies. This isn't the "classiest" idea, but one of my friends recently came back from the Gulf and brought us some small sand dollars he found. I found putting a shot glass inside of a slightly larger glass, and sticking the sand dollar in the space between the two, was a quick way to display them for now, until I can figure out something better. I'll try to remember to take a pic when I get home.

Not so much a display, but you can get a penny passport (! I'd love to see pics of your collection!

Wow, thank you for #2! That's such an awesome idea, and I had never heard of that before!

I saw penny holders on Amazon once (my kids had made a few); it might be cool to drill holes in the end and string them together into a garland, but then you have a garland to deal with. :)
