Link Love #66

We had the best dinner last night. For realz. We planned on having a nice roast turkey breast on Sunday for dinner but when I saw the sale on turkey breast ($.99/lb what whaaaattt!), we didn’t realize it was frozen until picking it up at the store.. Sunday afternoon. Whoops! But we brined the turkey overnight, seasoned the crap out of it, and popped it in the oven. It was sooo good!

I also had some sweet potato latkes leftover and we roasted a bunch of carrots. And do you see the sprinkling of salt?

Oh, that’s some special salt. That’s some truffle salt. It made the dish. I don’t think I can top that dinner for the rest of the week now! Good thing there are lots of leftovers 😉

Meet Up Success & Link Love

As I mentioned yesterday, last night I went to a Charm City Healthy Living Bloggers meet up. There really are a lot of us and it was so nice to finally put a [real life] face to a name! Only about half of us could make it out, but everyone I met was so sweet and it was great to talk to new people with similar interests. Not to mention, I felt like I already knew some of them from reading their blogs! Many thanks to Caitlyn for setting all of this up!
