Happy Wednesday, friends! I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks; since returning from Orlando time has whizzed by me. I can’t believe Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK! I still haven’t finalized my menu, but I am looking forward to a low-key thanksgiving day with Husband. He has to work on Friday so we are staying in Cincinnati for the holiday. I plan on eating and lounging all day long.
I decided to take this opportunity to share some of my current favorite things with you. Some of the things I will share will be food related and others will just be life related. I think it’s so easy to get in to a food rut so whenever I go to the grocery store, I make an effort to branch out and try something new, sometimes these become obsessions and other times not so much. Hopefully this post will inspire you to branch out and try something new!
One of my favorite fall/winter fruits is pomegranate. There’s only one problem with this fruit… peeling out all of those tiny little seeds! They fly everywhere and leave me frustrated with red fingertips. This is genius, why didn’t I think of this? These little Pom Poms are the perfect serving size.
Sargento Balanced Breaks
I found these Sargento Balanced Breaks in the cheese section at the grocery store a few weesk ago. They have these in different cheese-nut combinations, but so far my favorite has been the pepper jack cheese with honey roasted peanuts and raisins. When you open this package for the first time, expect a little sadness. Holy portion control! I will admit, I am always left satisfied; it’s just alarming initially when I see how little I get to snack on.
The name says it all… Happy Feet – “The original big sneaker slipper.” Husband and I treated ourselves to some new house slipper and they are AMAZING! I’m not going to lie, it took me awhile to commit to one, there are so many great options. Mine are Ohio State polka-dot ones and husbands are black bears. I tried to make husband walk around making bear-like growling noises, but it didn’t work. These slippers are so soft and squishy and make my feet so happy. I think these would be a great gift for loved ones for Christmas!
Sweet Kale Chopped Salad
I take salads to work most days for lunch and usually top the salads with protein left overs from the night before. I am loving this sweet kale mix, it has broccoli, kale, brussel sprouts, cabbage, and radicchio. This mix is a nice change from a traditional spring mix.
Fresh flowers are seriously my favorite thing right now. Having fresh flowers on the kitchen table just brings a smile to my face. Our local grocery store sells small boquets for about $6.00 and they last about two weeks. Six bucks for two weeks worth of happiness, sold!
What are some of your current obsessions?
