NEW BIKE DAY!!!! Can you tell I’m excited? I am now the lucky owner of a 2018 Specialized Stumpjumper. I am not going to get all geeky and go through the specs because then no one would read my blog!
This is a perfect fall recipe! I don’t even know what to say besides it’s delicious. It is delicious if (and only if) you like blue cheese. If not, move on, please. I happen to love blue cheese – a little bit goes a long way and has a ton of flavor!
The Instant Pot makes this recipe really easy, no watching the stove or cleaning up a mess when the pot boils over. I usually make a cup of quinoa at a time and keep it in the fridge for easy, quick meals. My dad gave me an Instant Pot as a housewarming gift when we moved to Reno and I’ll admit I was skeptical. I thought anything made in an instant pot could be made in a slow cooker, so why would you need both? WRONG. I will admit I think all kitchen appliances are necessary, even if they do serve a limited function.
Our bike-moon ended in Bar Harbor, Maine and we were lucky enough to spend a week exploring. Bar Harbor has a lot to offer! If you’re planning a 2017 trip, add Acadia to the list. The weather was absolutely perfect in October, chilly at night and warm during the day. The fresh seafood deserves an entire blog (or blog post) – it is so good! October is not peak-season for Acadia; however, it still does get busy. Leaf peeking season is early to mid October. If you plan it right, you can see the most beautiful colors in New England and visit a National Park. We spent 6 days in Bar Harbor with 4 exploring the park.
‘Tis the season for bourbon drinks. I made this cocktail for our first holiday party three years ago and haven’t stopped since. It is easy, fancy, delicious, and doesn’t need a long intro.
