Welcome back to Three on Thursday, a weekly list of three things I'm loving at the moment that I think you should do, try, or buy.  If you're interested in past weeks and more recommendations, you can find those here.  If you make your own Three on Thursday list, please share it in the comments so I can check it out.


ONE.

My Dad's 80th Birthday!  Which is today!  80 freaking years old.  There's no better favorite to be celebrating this week, in my opinion.  My dad is the best.  Happy Birthday Dad!  I love you.

TWO.

Brandless Teriyaki Marinade.  I have no use for marinades but John loves this one.  He loves marinades in general and he's tried tons of them at various price points, and no matter what, this $3 one from Brandless always remains the favorite.  Go figure.  He usually just takes beef strips and marinates them in this in the fridge and then gives them a quick cook in a pan for a few minutes.  Served with rice and broccoli, it's an incredibly quick and easy meal for him for lunches if he's home  from the firehouse and I'm at work.  If you've never ordered from Brandless, this link gets you $6 off your first purchase.

THREE.

Flintstones Vitamins.  Yes, we bought Flintstones vitamins.  I regret nothing.  Listen, it even says on the package that adults can take them too so whatever, vitamins are vitamins okay?!  If you eat a relatively healthy enough diet and wide variety of produce, you do okay on vitamin intake anyway (except for D and B12), taking a multivitamin is just a little extra precaution.  I was so tired of swallowing all the big old horse pills that are adult vitamins that I just stopped doing it.  And what's better, leaving the pills to sit unused in the cabinet and taking nothing, or taking a kids vitamin?  I know they aren't the cleanest in terms of ingredients but I just don't care.  I like them.  And so does John because they're half gone and it definitely wasn't me eating them all!
