Before I share about my weekend, I have a new cooking class uploaded to the class library. September’s theme is “Family Dinners” and the 5 brand new recipes I taught are: Apple Coffee Cake, Corn and Zucchini Rice Bake, Creamy Chicken Florentine, Roasted Fish over Red Lentils, and Warm Brussels Sprout Caesar Salad.
The class is a great way to get inspired for the new school year and as always, I teach lots of techniques and ways to make swaps if you don’t eat animal protein, gluten, dairy, etc. Here’s how you can purchase the single class or a subscription!
Hubs and I enjoyed a fantastic weekend visiting friends in Aspen, Colorado. We had not been in 20 years and we really maximized our time there. We had a very active weekend hiking, biking, walking into town, playing pickleball, golfing (Hubs), farmers market, Jazz Aspen, shopping (Loved Pitkin County Dry Goods) and eating at great restaurants - Meat and Cheese, Clark’s, Saint Ambreous, Cache Cache, Paradise Bakery, drinks at the Caribou Club and Hooch, Spring Cafe, The White House, coffee at The Jerome (look at the paintings ;).
As you know, I love playing games after dinner. My friend introduced us to a fun one - Blank Slate. Really easy rules, fun for all ages, and good with 4 people or a bigger group.
It takes time to get used to the high altitude! Sleep is affected, heart rate and oxygenation are affected. You may get a headache. It’s drier. I focus on staying hydrated and I start my day with an electrolyte powder of some sort. Pique BT Fountain. Hubs swears by these Boost Oxygen canisters.
I find it helpful while you sleep to use a humidifier. If you stay in a hotel, ask them if they have one.
This is a great gadget for attaching your hat to your purse or tote for traveling through the airport.
As always, I love hearing about what you love and if you are an Aspen-goer, please list your favorites here!
