Web Time Wasters

Looking for farm to table recipes? This strawberry puff pastry is an easy dessert recipe that will use up some of those strawberries from your garden!

How was your week, friends? Since it was the last week of the month, I did my monthly No Grocery Challenge to use up all odds and ends in the kitchen and reduce our grocery bill/food waste. This time, I partnered with Farm Flavor and used their farm to table recipes as a jumping off point (because I don’t know how to make a quinoa-based quiche crust without a little guidance.)

Cute! (And a metaphor for something)

I love house tours that are something other than NYC/LA minimalist palatial homes. So I obviously loved this tour of a colorful Tennessee rental. They’ve done AMAZING things.

Co-signed: Allow me to convince you to take a lunch break today.
The survey also found that employees who take regular lunch breaks are more engaged in the workplace, so while a quarter of Americans associate taking lunch with working less hard, the opposite is true.

Oooof. I’m sure I’ve been guilty of this – have you?

That’s a good question, Anon. Surprisingly, I’ve found that attitude verrrrry much goes both ways. When I’m in rural Minnesota and I tell people I live in Minneapolis, 70% of the time they respond by saying “I’m sorry.”
