Friday Five

I can’t believe it’s been about 6 weeks since we last cooked on a real stove! I think tonight I might boil some water and make a stir fry! While we weren’t intending the replacement to take this long, things just got stacked up. We have had a couple of weeks of creative cooking (and baking). Which meal would be your first order of business??

I’ve always loved Chicago and I would definitely move here if the circumstances were right. And by the right circumstances, I mean that the Earth’s axis would need to shift and the Midwest winter would need to not exist…

We have had so many great opportunities to visit some great places and try some new styles of beer. We stopped by 12 Degrees yesterday. I will definitely bring you the full run down on Monday!

I’ve loved everything by Joyce Carol Oates. This particular book has been my go to for travel this week. It is such an intricate story with some amazing imagery. If you haven’t picked up one of her books, I highly recommend them for a great summer read!

For the first time in quite a while, we have nothing set in stone this weekend! Our house is in need of a scrub as are our cars. We are thinking about biking and hiking. We will also be brewing this weekend! But the best part is that we have nothing with a deadline, no RSVP’s to make good on, and the potential for a bit of rain. Might be nice to sleep in tomorrow…

What made you smile this week?
