Friday Favorites: Bacon Pork Tenderloin, Halloween Gummies, Stella Holiday Launch, Mask Lanyards and more SNL


Oh Friday, Good to see you. This week was a lot. Nothing horrible just a lot and I am so happy it is the weekend. I am looking forward to planting some bulbs, making some food and just enjoying some time as a family. All the nurturing things I really need right now. 
To celebrate Friday, I am linking up with up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share the things that bring me Joy. 

1) Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Marinated Pork Loin

Oh Besties, this applewood bacon pork tenderloin from Smithfield is so Good. You can find it right in your local grocery store and it is perfect for fall. We have roasted it in the oven and also put it on the grill. I think I might prefer it in the oven. It is so easy and all you do is add a really Good salad and roasted potatoes and you have the perfect fall meal. 

In Praise of Pears


It's pumpkin spice and apple everything season and I am totally here for it. That being said, we have a favorite fall fruit in the Good Better Best household that I think is totally underrated. We love pears in our house and use them in a few unexpected ways. I am sharing those ideas with you today. 

Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut squash soup is a staple for fall food. I am here to tell you that I think that my butternut squash with pear soup is one of the Best things I make.  Most recipes for butternut squash soup call for apple but adding in pear, just gives the soup a totally different and unexpected flavor. It adds a certain sweetness and depth. Adding in pears is also a really Good way to use up pears that get too ripe too quickly.

Friday Favorites: Fall Flowers, Best Pesto and Cream Cheese, Breast Cancer Awareness Bag and SNL Premier


Oh Happy Friday Besties! I hope it is a long weekend for you. It is for two out of three of us in the Good Better Best household. I am linking up with up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share the things that bring me Joy. Fall in general brings me Joy

1) Fall Flowers

There is something about digging in the dirt a little and popping some flowers in pots that is so soothing to me. This weekend I cleaned off our little terracotta pots on the back patio and added in some mums and pansies. Now that our patio is finished, it was time to get some fall flowers back there.

Friday Favorites: Camo Utility Pants, Trader Joe's Harvest Salsa, Real Housewives of Potomac, Best Fall Pullover and Breast Cancer Awareness Boutique


Hello Friday! This was a busy week, but it was a Good week and I am looking forward to a little fall fun in a safe manner. As I do on my Fridays I am linking up with up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share the things that bring me Joy. Pour your favorite seasonal beverage and settle in for Friday Favorites.

1) Camo Utility Pants

I am a total camo convert. I only started wearing camo this spring and now I am obsessed. I just didn't think it was "me" for so long and that is odd because olive green is one of my Better colors. 

What's Up Wednesday: September 2020


Hey Besties. I cannot believe that we are at the end of September. One thing that means...just a few more months of 2020! There have been some Good things in the month of September, but I know that Running Daddy and I are so glad the end of this month is here. 

It's the last Wednesday of the month and I am linking up with Shay and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday. Settle in to find out what we have been up to this month.

What We're Eating This Week

Monday-Sausage, polenta and salad. I know this typically shows up here every month. This is basically because that is when it comes up in our dinner schedule.

Tuesday-The boys have a long hockey practice and I am going to a safe shopping party with wine on our patio after. 

Thursday-We have another hockey night so we typically have something easy on Thursday nights. If I have enough chicken left over from Wednesday, I will do sheet pan nachos. If I don't I will probably do chicken pesto pasta.

Friday-Take out

Monthly Musings September 2020: Fall and Halloween


Happy Fall Besties! The last Thursday of the month kind of snuck up on me as it fell a little early. Never fret, Holly was here to remind me that today is Monthly Musings and we are talking fall and Halloween this month. How fun! I am so ready for fall and curious to see how you are preparing for Halloween this year. Grab some candy corn and a cozy beverage and settle in for Monthly Musings.

1) Favorite Fall Tradition

I used to say that my three favorite days were Christmas, Easter and the Hawks 5K. The Hawks 5K is race at our old school that Running Daddy helped design and found. He was hoping to finally run the race and hit the course that he helped design but of course COVID got in the way so things are virtual this year.

Topics for September Monthly Musings


See you back here on Thursday for my monthly link up with Holly where we will be talking Fall and Halloween. I hope you will join us to link up, read or both!
