Happy Friday y’all! Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week?! Earlier in the week I posted two Thanksgiving themed posts, so if you missed them, here’s a recap:
Next week is going to be pretty crazy for us. And I’m sure it will be for you too, which is why there will be no posts on the blog next week. So I hope you enjoy this Friday Favorites and have an AWESOME Thanksgiving weekend with family & friends, and I’ll talk to you after Thanksgiving!
Friday Favorites #24
Spaghetti Squash Meals
Tis’ the season for spaghetti squash! Man do I love this low-carb, veggie alternative to pasta! And so does my blood sugar!
Last night was a VERY random spaghetti squash dinner. It was mac n’ cheese style “spaghetti” with sauteed onions, garlic, and hot dogs….yep hotdogs. I paired it with almond flour biscuits and it was delicious!
For the cheese sauce I blended some cashews, nut milk, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, mustard, ghee, and salt and pepper. Simmered on the stove for a bit to thicken (with a bit of organic, non-GMO cornstarch) and viola! Cheese sauce.
Pump Peelz NEW Christmas Line!
Did you guys see Pump Peelz new Christmas peelz? How cute is the dabbing santa and cool santa?! Makes me want to wear t-shirts all winter long, just to show off my robots’ new peelz!
Movie Theater Season!
I love going to the movies and right now there so many good movies out! On my Top 5 List are:
- Bad Moms Christmas
- Daddys Home
- Murder on the Orient Express (loved this book!)
- Thank You For Your Service
- Justice League (solely because of Aquaman <3)
I love bringing my own snacks too. Perfectly measured out popcorn (so I know exactly how much to bolus and don’t have to worry about going high/low during the movie), some fat bombs, and of course beef jerky!
Alias Grace on Netflix
Do you love Margaret Atwood’s books-turned-series, like the Handmaid’s Tail? Then you will LOVE LOVE LOVEEEE this new series, Alias Grace, on Netflix. Last night I binge watched 4 episodes <3 and I can’t wait to finish the remaining 6 this weekend (or tonight, if we’re being shamefully honest). Here’s the rundown:
Alias Grace tells the story of young Grace Marks, a poor Irish immigrant and domestic servant in Upper Canada who is accused and convicted of the 1843 murder of her employer and his housekeeper. Stablehand James McDermott is also convicted of the crime. McDermott is hanged, but Grace is sentenced to life in prison, leading her to become one of the most notorious women of the period in Canada. The story is based on actual 19th-century events.
