March snuck up on me. Somewhere between the daily snowy commutes and the barrage of sickness, February happened. And with it, a solid month of blogging. Yep, February was the first full month of this blog, and so I want to start a monthly tradition of doing the “best of.” Maybe I’m getting too into the spirit of award season, but I want to recap some of the great (and not so great) projects, recipes, or happenings of the last month.
Best place to people watch: A thrift shop, especially when you have Thrift Shop by Macklemore running through your head.
Best recipe resource: It sounds like ereaders and print outs from blogs take the cake on this one. Though I still love to look through a trusted cookbook.
Best way to spend a Sunday: Sleeping in late, staying in your jammies, and getting a massage. Oh, and sharing an old favorite with you all.
Best impression of glue: The breakfast risotto I made in the crockpot. A tasty treat the morning you make it, but it doesn’t reheat so well…
Best Hey Girl Internet Meme: E, in the Hey Girl Challenge (at least in my opinion).
Best way to prepare cheap steaks: With a huge amount of salt. Seriously, salting your steaks, letting them rest, then rinsing and drying before grilling = best steak ever.
Best way to ruin a Valentine’s Day meal: Serve your love something slimy and brown out of a crockpot.
Best way to pay your babysitter: With groceries and candy cane snowballs. Or maybe not with that second part. Next time I make those, I’m not sharing.
Best way to gauge your DIY/crafting skills: Participate in the Winter Pinterest Challenge. Spoiler alert: My crafting skills could use some work. Luckily all turned out well.
Your turn. How was your February? Any recipes that flopped or new favorites? How about a good people watching story? Let me know in the comments!
