Hello friends. It’s Friday!
Here we are, another week and another Friday Faves. Do you know I’ve been creating these lists since 2011?? That’s every Friday for 12 years, never missing one. Besides brushing my teeth and making my bed, it might be the most consistent thing I’ve ever done. And will keep doing because you guys keep wanting more. Thank you for being here!
The other thing I keep doing week in and week out? Riffing on my salads for lunch. This week it was a clean-out-the-fridge version of my Italian Chopped Salad. It’s just one reason I love salads you can tweak and play with and swap out one ingredient for three more. So craveably good.
With that, let’s get into this week’s Friday Faves.
