I just thought I would share a little bit of my week.
So, my brain tends to go a little berserk this time of year.
You know how in the cartoons their heads spin around and steam comes out of their ears?
That’s kind of where I was.
Stud Man agreed to take off for a couple of days with me.
We headed a couple of hours away and ended up at the Alaskan Inn in Ogden Canyon, Utah.
It was not the Waldorf but it was cozy and quiet and quiet.
Just what this girl needed.
Getting away with that man for a couple of days is one of my favorite things.
I also love to cook for my family and pinning recipes is a problem for me.
They may disagree with that statement because I am not so good at doing it regularly (the cooking…I’m pretty regular with the Pinterest.ha) but it does make me feel somehow more motherly and wifely when I do it.
I made this roast a few days ago and oh.my.gosh. SO GOOD!! It makes amazing gravy too!!
My husband got a Traeger Smoker for Christmas and we have been smoking like crazy.
We decided to smoke a pork butt (that just doesn’t sound right somehow) and after watching some pretty entertaining Southern gentlemen on You Tube we were ready to go. We used this rub recipe, smoked it for 11 hours, and it was DELISH.
Anthony Bourdain is one of my secret crushes. I’m not sure what it is about him but I love watching his shows. Travel, food, and a bad boy, yes please. I have watched every episode of The Layover, Parts Unknown and No Reservations, probably more than once. Thank you Netflix. Just the other day I realized there was a new one that is super old, I think it was his first show, A Cook’s Tour. I’ve been binge watching since I found it.
Today was the perfect ending to my week.
I got to see my oldest teach her first class in the Art Cabin and she did a fabulous job.
The ladies made some beautiful leather cuffs under her direction.
Then my youngest played a mean game of bball. Watching my girls be so confident and brave makes my heart happy.
So maybe you can cook a roast or smoke a pork butt while binge watching an Anthony Bourdain show this weekend…
or if you are a football fan I hope your team wins!!
