I said I was going to post for Thinking Out Loud Thursday, but I didn’t. I did go for a rollerblade around Lake Calhoun, went to the grocery store, baked some zucchini muffins (more to come on that at a later time!), made dinner, cleaned the kitchen, did laundry, and watched some terrible alien show (sorry Andy!) with the fiancé. Oh and packed for this weekend. No time for blogging in there.
But today is Friday, and I figured I could fit in a quick post!
So what were my favorite things this week?! Read on brother. Read on.
Friday Favorites 6
1. Late evening walks around Cedar Lake.
Man am I going to miss this lake when we move away! I mean, how wouldn’t I with this view:
2. Heirloom tomatoes.
If you haven’t tasted a heirloom tomato yet, you are missing out. Last night we made lamb burgers (which I featured on another Friday Favorites here!) with fresh mozzarella, tomato slices and a mint leaf. With a side of another one of my favorites, grilled zucchini.
3. Kevita Sparkling Probiotic Drink.
Not a huge fan of kefir as it is a little too carbonated for my likes and tends to give me heartburn. This however, is heaven. A probiotic drink that is sweetened with stevia, only has 10 calories per bottle (not that I’m counting!), and tastes amazing!
I posted a few weeks ago on Tips Tuesday about how to store herbs (check it out here!). I just can’t get enough of herbs, especially in the summertime. A perfect way to add flavor without added salt, sugar, fat, or unnecessary calories! Not to mention they are full of good-for-you nutrients and carry many health benefits. Check out my thyme that is still going strong after almost 2 weeks:
5. Heading ‘Up North’.
The fiancé and I are heading up north with some friends after work this afternoon. There is nothing like getting away from the cities, spending all day on the lake, taking boat rides, having bonfires, and just generally adopting a more go-with-the-flow easier way of life. Can you tell I’m excited?
