An Eight Course Meal at Saugatuck Craft Butchery

Happy Monday friends! Boy do I have a great post for you today.

First things first though. The winner of the Strong and KIND bar giveaway is….

Becca! I used the Random Number Generator to pick the winner.  Congrats Becca!

Now on to the yummy, scrumptious, melt in your mouth stuff. Andy and I attended a Harvest Dinner last week at the Saugatuck Craft Butchery.

The Saugatuck Craft Butchery was founded three years ago in Westport, Connecticut by a husband and wife who were unsatisfied with food situation in the area.  It was way too hard to find good quality and local meat so they left their corporate jobs and opened up a food establishment to provide the community with grass fed, antibiotic and hormone free animal products. So cool.

Andy and I have been wanting to get to the butchery to check it out so when the opportunity arose to attend one of their eight course dinners, we jumped right on it!

This was such a cool experience and one of the best, most adventurous meals I have ever had!  We sat right up at the bar seats where we had an up close view of the chef, Emily, at work.  It was like a real live version of Top Chef!

New Strong & KIND Bars Review and Giveaway!

Hi guys!  You may remember that I am a huge KIND Snacks fan.  My first ever review and giveaway was KIND Bars exactly a year ago.  My favorite thing about KIND bars is that they are made with all real ingredients that you can actually pronounce.

My all time favorite KIND Snacks are their Nuts and Spices bars but when I heard about their new Strong and KIND bars I was curious to try! The generous folks over there sent me some to sample AND giveaway.

My Latest Yoga Playlist

Happy Friday friends! I hope everyone experienced some great moments this week.

See what I did there?  I often write, “I hope everyone had a great week.”  But the reality is that not every single moment of every single day is going to be ‘great.’ Our days can get stressful, hectic, or frustrating…traffic, anyone?  The important thing to remember is to find those moments of peace, calm, and happiness.  The ones that make you stop in your tracks, smile, and breathe in the present moment.

So with that, I hope you all had a few great moments this week. 

To celebrate this Friday, because well it’s Friday, I thought I’d share my latest yoga playlist.   Continue reading
