Welcome to another Coffee + Convo!
Valentine’s Day is this week, do you have anything special planned?? I think it’s a pretty overrated day, but I do love chocolate! If you want some Valentine’s Day ideas, here’s my Pinterest board with everything Valentine’s Day.
I promise Baxter isn’t as sad as he looks! He just hates getting is picture taken…usually he runs away. A rare moment where he actually stayed still.
RECIPE SNEAK PEEK
Next week, I have one more very share-able Valentine’s Day dessert recipe on Tuesday and for Thursday my favorite tomato soup recipe with a cheesey crunch.
10 New Hobbies You Can Get Into (With Craft Kits!) for $50 or Less: I’m notorious for starting 500 projects at once, so what’s one more? I’d love to try candle making.
FOOD I LOVE
- Heart beet ravioli: If these aren’t the cutest Valentine’s Day dinner entree, I don’t know what is.
- Earl Grey Hot Chocolate: Mixes the two best drinks.
- Chocolate chip cookie stuffed soft pretzels: Genius idea!
- Sheet pan chicken shawarma with sesame sweet potatoes and hummus: My kind of meal.
- Buffalo chickpea mac & cheese: Mmmm.
- Spicy Chili Oil Wontons: Worth the effort.
- Blackberry infused earl grey iced tea: Clearly, I’m a big tea fan.
- Rosemary cheddar irish soda bread: I would have never though of this!
- Vegan Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies: Gooey, soft, chewy.
- Devil’s food cupcakes with pomegranate sugar shards: Perfect Valentine’s Day dessert.
Last weekend, one of my favorite musicians passed away. Tim Landers was part of (and created) many amazing musical projects. May he live on forever in his songs.
- Misser – Distancing: The first project he started while still in Transit. One of my favorite bands he was a part of, I personally love their vocal combinations.
- Off & On – Good Talk Vol. 1: A shorter lived project, but amazing none the less. Definitely a different feel with more synth and experimental sounds.
- Cold Collective: The perfect rock band. Started with just Tim, a guitar, and a drum machine. It grew to include a full band, I’ve overplayed their records many times in the last week.
PS – If you like any of the music, Rise Records is have a sale (through February 15th) on all Transit, Misser, and Cold Collective merch, with all profits going to Tim’s family to help with service costs.
