So, Tuesday Tidbits became Wednesday Widgets this week. Mea culpa! The husband and I spent a few days in Tahoe, seeing that big fireball in the sky and getting our hike on. (Oh, and adventures with rental car dying just before taking the twisty, turny road. It left us stranded, but in a safe place. Props to the Sunday staff of the Circle K in Incline Village, NV! They let us use their phone when our battery started dying, after several 20-minute chunks on hold….)
Several adventures later, and we’re back in 50-degree western Washington, with many good memories, and a recommendation to stay at the North Tahoe Lodge if you’re in the Truckee area. Very luxurious, great owners (who live in my hometown of Fremont, CA, when not at Tahoe), fantastic hospitality!
Enough reminiscing… onward to this week’s link collection!
1. Are you like my husband and allergic to nuts, but want Nutella? Try this recipe–you can make something similar, pureeing sunflower seeds with chocolate to make a similar spread.
2. Like playing Space Invaders? Well, get the Space Invaders Couch!
3. Still got summer? (no. I don’t secretly hate you. no.) As part of a website listing 50 frozen desserts from popsicles to drinks to ice cream, here’s a recipe for blackberry granita that looks mighty fine.
4. Check out this quote
5. I love these dipped strawberries for sports fans!
OK, y’all! Gotta go pick up family from the airport! Talk soon! I think it’s time for another fitness challenge… what say?
