Hey there foodie friends! How was your week? Last weekend was a bit rough for me (I was terribly ill), but the rest of the week ended up being okay to say the least. Class work is real, with no sign of letting up anytime soon (haha!). I had my first quiz in biology and I'm pretty sure I nailed it (woohoo hydrogen bonds and van der Waals forces!). Yea, molecular biology this semester, which is okay since I've always liked chemistry. I was the chemistry queen in high school. Never below 100%, I kid you not. I hope when I get to taking my actual chemistry course in college....that skill will really come back. Fingers crossed!
In other captivating news, I'm getting my hair cut tomorrow. It's been at least 1.5 years. Yea, bad. Since I keep my hair up most of the time now, I really don't think I'll be doing anything exciting. I would never cut the length, but I've been curious about color....hmmm. (I'll probably leave with just a trim...no change...just like every other time I've ever gone.) Except one time years back when I got some side bangs again (horrible idea and I hated every minute of it!).
Now go soak up the sunshine of your LAST official Summer weekend! (Major tears!) Happy Friday!
Monday: Easy Refrigerator Pickles
Wednesday: Honey Mustard Pretzel Crusted Chicken
Blog Posts and Links I loved this week:
Life, Mind, Body, Spirit:
What are yours? Do you know?
I think this maybe the best time to dig deep here.
You should feel confident just because you are!
Remember these when you think you've failed!
Think about your reasons for sharing, your whys, and who will see it. This goes for anything.
We have to make tough decisions everyday.
Don't go skimming on those calories!
Seems pretty accurate!
You actually do lose your gains pretty quickly.
This is where I stand on the issue as of now.
Than again...But please, my fellow celiacs, don't follow those sponsored posts by bloggers who are not even gluten-free. They are doing it for money and not celiac health.
You're solution for everything!
Bahahahaha! I want one! (Because apparently boxes are to difficult!)
Chuckles 😉 I actually had a delicious baking success this week!
Ew. Can't stand a pizza folder! It's like they want to get it over with quicker so they shove it all in there mouth at ones...yuck!
You guys all know I am a FUN flavorful chicken person! They should never be boring!
Omg! #11 and #6 totally happened. But #8, haha, totally me and #4...hahahaha, Natalie 😉
I totally agree!
Hahahahahaha! I luck out most of the time and this rarely happens with me! ($5+ dollars well spent!)
So spot on! I love this!
It is. Meat was hard to come by anyway during "caveman" times. It was extremely dangerous and only happened on occasion to hunt. "Gathering" was much more the basis of the diet. So you may want to refresh yourself with an ancient history course 😉
I'm a firm believer in that there is another underlying issue.
The paradox that is all too real.
Blogging, Social Media, Tech & Photography:
What do you think?
It depends on your goals, but you might want to really think twice.
If you can remember 😉
The evolution of freelancing on the internet.
Okay, so the "emails" they are making fun of here, I always thought they were spam (auto-generated) anyway and just delete them. So...I'm pretty sure the only bloggers who might take them seriously are newbies....
If you want to make it happen, you can do it!
Not just your email and pictures, but the whole sha-bang!
The multiple directions and options you have to think about.
I finally learned how to check things! Like top posts and key words! Haha! (I'm so behind!)
Podcast junkies unite!
There's a tone-checker!
I am a proud air-dryer!
Because this is the tread right now, but I dig it!
I've always been an advocate for reading aloud and basically "re-teaching" yourself.
Omg! Yes! This is so accurate! Every one of these I can smell just by the picture!
I hate when people say they're good at multi-tasking. It really isn't a thing.
Every single one of these is so true!
People...it's really not that hard! OMG! (I HATE driving!)

+ Favorite Trader Joe's pumpkin product? That cereal.
