The Weekly Mince is a weekly series where I talk about my favorite things around the web, favorite products, recommendations and other bits of life like meal planning, workouts, dogs, etc.
Happy Friday! Why is it that shorter weeks somehow feel longer? I mean, this week kinda feels short but the days have felt long. The holiday really messed me up. I need a holiday from my holiday.
This past weekend I was in Arizona and we went tubing and I played hockey and ate food and it was fun and very sunny. Mostly very very sunny. Tubing was a lot of fun! Would love to go again.
Here’s some of my favorites from this week:
True Food Kitchen
There’s a True Food in California but I haven’t made it out yet so when I saw it in Arizona, we decided to give it a go! What a great spot. First of all, it’s beautiful, welcoming and refreshing. The food was great, the service was outstanding and I loved every bit of the meal.
Tried this spot our first night in AZ. I dig it. It’s really dog friendly and good beers. If you’re ever in Arizona, I’d recommend! Also the Steak Fries are like……. the best.
The State new spot that just opened in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. We went there last night for my friends birthday and it was awesome! Fun atmosphere, dog friendly patio, good drinks, good food… so basically my kinda party.
I had a Gin Daisy (delicious) and the New York Steak (also delicious).
This infuse your own olive oil kit looks fun. I love all those kits to make your own stuff.
Still obsessed with Buffalo Chicken. Now on fries? Sold.
Class up those college Drunchie favorites.
Has anyone checked out Merriam Webster Twitter? Bc I had no idea a dictionary could be so sassy/hilarious.
Current Food: Cheese Taco Shells
Love these things! I’m all about trying new ways of favorite foods so eating a Taco with a Cheese shell is perf. They’re surprisingly sturdy and really good, as you can imagine just by the words “cheese taco shell”
Current Beer: Orange Blossom Wheat Beer
Picked this up in AZ at a gas station instead of going for the Coors Light. Good! Kinda tastes like a creamsicle in a way but not overly so. It’s not too creamy, it’s just got a nice mouthfeel and a good taste. Sipped on it for two hours straight while tubing.
Current Drink: Gin Raisy at The State in Rancho Cucamonga, CA
Just had this last night and it was great — I love the clean, smooth flavor of gin mixed with subtle flavors like lime, mint, lemongrass. Perfect for summer nights.
Current Favorite Podcast: My Favorite Murder
We listened to this on the roadtrip to AZ and were just laughinggggg. Not at all like I expected it to be but the two girls that host it really are funny (albeit sometimes a bit inappropriate)
Current Snack: Simple Mills Crackers
These crackers are so good! I love the ingredients list, nothing weird, and they taste great. They’re definitely my favorite cracker right now.
Also, if you haven’t already checked it out, I wrote The Blogger’s Guide to Trello. Trello has been an incredible addition to my workflow and super helpful for keeping all of my projects organized. Totally recommend.
That’s it for this week. Thanks for reading!
