Hello and Happy Friday Faves!
This week has been to and fro and back again with travel from Salt Lake City to Minneapolis to meet up with my Nourished Planner partner Alexis to work on content for the 2019 edition of the Nourished Planner (yes! aready!!!) and then off to Cinncinati where I met up with Kroger executives and the Kroger Influencer Council (hey! that’s me!) to learn about new products you’ll be seeing in Kroger stores and marketing ideas and input from us cooks in the kitchen and our community like you. So if there’s anything you’d like me to share with those at Kroger, just let me know and I’ll get your message to them.
And now, today, I am home and so happy to be back with my little family and our pups, and am relishing in the fact that my work travel days are suspended ’til after Labor Day, and man, does that feel good!!! Don’t get me wrong, there’s so much value I get from trips with my partnered brands and fellow influencers, but knowing I will be home and can dig into work and family and my garden (!) is really thrilling for me. Do you travel for work? What are your secrets to managing it all? Email me and tell me because we can all use all the help we can get.
Speaking of travel, it was a few weeks ago when I was working on this travel-centric list of Friday Faves that I discovered today is the 7th birthday for Friday Faves. And so, I asked you to send in a few of your faves to share here too. Thanks so much for the vivacious response and I’m sharing some of them straight from you below.
So on that note, get your clicking finger ready and get ready to bookmark, because we are digging in and get favoriting this Friday!
What Went Up This Week…
This week’s culinary creations included:
- Avocado Grapefruit and Fennel Salad because these ingredients are always a winning combination, especially when salty parmesan and a mustardy-grapefruit-white balsamic vinaigrette come to the party as well. This recipe’s from the new cookbook Simply Citrus by Marie Asselin of the food blog Food Nouveau, and you guys, you need this book — it’s so awesome!
- Killer Garlic Fries with Rosemary whether you make these fries in the oven or in the air fryer, these fries are undeniably good, and you should definitely #treatyoself.
Okay, so let’s get going with Friday Faves, because this week you beautiful people shared some of YOUR favorite things!
