Making Bananas Last Longer

I recently learned that you can make a bunch of bananas last longer but separating them after you buy them. After I buy them, I break them off the bunch and place them all in a bowl on the kitchen counter. It seems to work...they won't last for a month or anything like that but they don't seem to brown as quickly. That's what works for me!

The kids and I went strawberry picking today. None of us had ever done that before...we had a great time! The weather was beautiful and the strawberries looked delicious. Now I need to think of what to do with the fruits of our labor! I will definitely use some in a fruit salad and we'll be making smoothies and popsicles. I told my husband that he better be hungry for strawberries because we have enough to feed a small country!

Need Road Trip Entertainment Ideas Please!

We are going on a very long road trip this summer. We will definitely be bringing along plenty of movies for the kids (ages 9, 7, and 3), books, travel games. etc. But I'm looking for some fresh, new ideas for road trip entertainment.

Help me out folks....PLEASE! Do you have any road trip boredom busters that you've heard about or used yourself? What works for you?
