Hello, my beautiful friends! Sorry, the newsletter hasn't gone out the last two weeks. We had a family emergency that was pretty all consuming. I didn't have any mental space for anything else. But, we are back home and resuming our regularly scheduled life. I never do well away from home for a long period, and I live full-time in and RV. I don't think it's really about being away from home. It's more about being away from my routine. It was great to spend time with family. I love them and miss them all but, I am glad to be home.

Today, was my first day back to the gym after over two weeks away. I did work out some while away but it wasn't the same so, it was nice to be back at my home gym. Although, I got my butt kicked this morning and ended up back in bed for an hour after getting back home. If you don't know the husband and I have been going to a CrossFit gym regularly since about August. Which is a miracle because I have never stuck with a workout regimen for more than a month. I have been refraining from becoming one of those obnoxiously obsessed CrossFitters but, I'm not going to lie, we are pretty obsessed. I plan to share more on our obsession soon. Brace yourself.

mom jeans

stuff that cracks me up

Have you seen these ridiculous jeans? And, no this isn't a Nordstrom's April Fools' joke. These are available for purchase. You took can have the pleasure of showing off your knees for a frugal $95.00. In case it isn't clear I am using sarcasm.

There was even a YouTuber brave enough to wear these clear knee mom jeans for an entire week. Check her out!

MomJeans

What confuses me is when did mom jean become a trendy fashion statement? Am I the only one confused by this? Did we forget about the classic SNL Mom Jeans skit? I guess every generation needs a fashion trend that they will regret later.

Also, if you want to laugh and get an inside look at what it's like to be a food blogger you need to watch this video. Fellow food blogger Amy of Belly Full does a great job poking fun at food blogging craziness.

what i'm watching

Have you all been watching HBO's Big Little Lies? I read the book over the winter. I will admit that although I liked the book I found it a little jumpy. All the back and forth of different points of views. If you watched the show the book is totally worth a read. The book is a little different but, both are good in their own way. But, I admit that I enjoyed the show more. I loved the performance of all of the actors and the soundtrack is amazing. And, even though I had an idea how it would end I was hooked. Believe it or not, one of the 6-year-old characters, Chloe, is responsible for a good chunk of the soundtrack. Her music choices are mostly soulful classic R&B. But, the soundtrack has a little bit of everything. I even made a Spotify playlist.

small bites

I saw this Monte Cristo Burger and almost passed out! I consider myself a burger connoisseur and I will be adding this one to my list.

I remember the first time I ate honeycomb candy. It was awesome! I stinking love honeycomb candy. Now you can make your own honeycomb at home.

Breakfast is going to get interesting and fabulous with these quick and simple sweet potato biscuits and gravy.

Bread pudding is awesome and savory bread pudding is amazing. Gimme some bacon spinach & artichoke challah bread pudding!

How to clean a cast iron pan.

I LOVE cast iron! It's durable, dependable and easy to maintain. There is a common misconception that cast iron need a lot of care. That couldn't be further from the truth. Cast iron is a workhorse and nowadays it comes pre-seasoned so, the hard part is already done for you. What is important is how you clean your cast iron. The best way to clean cast iron is with salt. Using soap will break down your seasoning and cause the pan to rust. Salt is great because it soaks up oils that could go rancid and helps remove dry stuck-on bits.

The best way to clean a cast iron pan is to pour coarse kosher salt into the still-warm pan. Use a folded kitchen towel to scour the pan. Discard the salt and rinse the pan with hot water. Dry immediately with a kitchen towel, or heat skillet over a medium-low flame to evaporate the moisture. Done!

"I LOVE your site, your insight, and your ability to communicate so clear that it even turns out in MY kitchen! You have no idea how amazing that is!
However, all my other recipes are on allrecipes.com. I just pick them, press "add all ingredients", compare the resulting shopping list to my pantry, and get my groceries. How can I "add" your ingredients to my grocery list? Can I add your recipes in a way that you get credit? Are they there already? I don't want to detract from what you're building here, but I find I'm settling for substitutes when i meal-plan and that's not tasting the way i want to eat at the table. HELP me PLEASE!! Thank you so very much! "

Unfortunately, I do not have the capability on my blog. However, I can recommend a website that lets you add any recipe and create a grocery list. BigOven is a great website and they have a great phone app. With BigOven you can add any recipe manually, copy paste, photo upload or url. You can also organize your recipes and create grocery lists.

The discovery of Zenni Optical has changed everything. I have been ordering glasses from Zenni for 4 years now. I currently, wear these glasses most of the time. But the awesome thing about Zenni Optical is that they are so affordable you can buy a pair for every occasion. My last order I bought three pairs of glasses for $63! And, I am not talking just frames. I mean a complete pair of glasses.

junk headbands

I have been on a long time hunt for a good workout headband. It's a hard thing to find, especially when you have short hair. I don't have a ponytail to help keep a headband in place. I can't tell you how many times I would buy a new headband just to have it pop off my head mid workout. These band are the best! They come in all kinds of fun prints, moisture wicking, breathable, and comfortable.
