Monthly Favourites September 2016
Hi guys! How’s it going? Well, here we are again to another monthly favourites & round-up! If you missed last month’s, you can check it out here. Anyways, onto the good stuff – this has been what’s making me smile this past month! Time to get ya happy on!
RECIPES I’VE POSTED THIS MONTH –
FOOD & FOOD RELATED SHINANIGANS –
Recipes I have been LOVING this month from friends and fellow food bloggers –
Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas from Tasty Ever After I’m telling you, people, Karrie knows her way around the kitchen. She loves tacos, as do I, and when she comes up with a recipe, I can tell you one thing – it’s gonna be GOOD! I could seriously eat these carnitas all day. Every single day. Food like this is the reason I regularly work out. No joke. Feel me? Please say ya do ??
Creamy Roasted Beet Hummus from Ciao Chow Bambina . Let’s all just take a minute and bask in the beauty of this hummus, shall we? I mean, c’mon, how pretty is this? Wouldn’t you just love to bottle up that colour?! I would almost feel a tad guilty for dipping into it, it’s that beautiful…but it’s just too dang good, how could I possibly resist?? Hubby & I love bits and bites, especially on Friday night. I would absolutely love to sit down with this hummus, wine in hand, and jump right it.
TELEVISIONS SHOWS/MOVIES –
The Strain on FX – Ok, you guys, this show is not for the faint of heart. It’s on mainstream tv, but it is pretty gruesome at times. There’s a viral outbreak involving a form of ancient vampire trying to invade a city and it’s people. You may be thinking ‘Ok, Dawn, you’ve gone off deep end.’ But, trust me here, it’s good. It’s not for everyone, I know, but it’s definitely entertaining & a fave of hubby and I.
I have been obsessed with Dance Off by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (feat. Idris Elba & ) this month. It’s not a song that you’re gonna listen to and chillax…it’s more of a ‘gonna pump you up to work out’ kinda song – good after you’ve eaten all those carnitas 😉 … know what I mean? Heads up<—-there is a fair bit of uncensored language in the video, but it is pretty awesome.
You know what other song I’ve been loving? Closer by The Chainsmokers (feat. Halsey). I do. On repeat. I know I’ll probably be playing over and over until I get tired of it<—story of my life. You guys like that too?
So as the cooler temperatures are just around the corner, we all need an extra bit of help in the ‘keeping the skin moist’ department (or at least I know I do). Found this brand on Sephora called ‘Captain Blankenship’ and they use organic ingredients. How awesome is that? I got a body cream from them called ‘Sunshine Body Cream.’ It’s like a balm and I love it for spot treatment of dry areas. Plus, the name? I’m a total sucker here, my friends. Just how cute is it?!
RANDOM STUFF –
Guys, I just can’t stop thinking about the holidays!!! Eeeeeek. I’m starting to get freakin’ excited right now. We were looking at flyers and there is holiday stuff starting to slowly creep its way in. I absolutely love baking during the holidays and seriously can’t wait to get ma bake-on. My mindset is kinda looking forward to things I have to make and gifts I have to buy. Are you there yet? Annie, I know you are 😉
You may have read in a previous post that I LOVE silly t shirts and that’s my go-to on the weekend. My brother had told me about this site called Snorg Tees and they have the cutest/funniest shirts that you’ve ever seen….good little selection of food related ones which are totally my jam! You know, I got a couple!
Well, guys, hope you’ve enjoyed this Monthly Favourites September 2016! Have a fantastic weekend with lots of rest, relaxation & good eats (but, that goes without saying, doesn’t it?).
Take care & chit chat with ya next week 🙂 !
