I’m so glad you guys enjoyed Kat’s wonderful guest post this afternoon. I figured we could use a little Hanukkah love up in here!
I spent the day writing away in hopes of having absolutely no work to do at the end of the week.
I also did a few blog updates:
- Check out the reorganized Workouts page! I took some time to categorize my favorite strength and circuit workouts for those of you who requested that I divide up the workouts a bit so you can quickly visit the page to find the workout that you’re after.
- The Books page was updated with the most recent Book Club reviews.
- All of my previous Blog Talk Tuesdays posts may now be found on my Blogging page.
I think that’s it for the PBF housekeeping updates!
Leftovers to the rescue!
Tonight’s dinner was incredibly easy thanks to leftovers from last night’s dinner.
Before we left on our hike yesterday, I threw all of the ingredients for a homemade French onion beef stew in the crock pot. I followed a recipe from Woman’s Day magazine after it sparked my interest when I saw that it called for apple juice as part of the broth.
Tonight I simply reheated the stew and we dug in!
While I adore soup, stew is where it’s at in the winter. Thick and hearty – perfect for a chilly night.
Dessert this evening came courtesy of a Foodzie box that arrived in the mail last week.
Foodzie is an online marketplace where you can learn about and buy food directly from small, high-quality food producers and growers and even subscribe to monthly tasting boxes. I’ve previously tried a Foodzie box and loved it, so I jumped at the chance to sample the Cookies & Sweets box this month.
The box included chocolate, hazelnut butter, cinnamon, dried cherries and more!
I made a batch of granola with the dried cherries this evening and snacked on a couple of pieces of the almond brittle for dessert.
Both were winners.
Off to hang with Ryan and Sadie!
