I’d like to welcome you to Coffee Talk. If you’re new here, this is where I share some of the great and not~so~great stuff that I find on the web. Topics range from news stories that leave me scratchin’ my head to DIYs that I think are absolutely clever. And, who knows, there may even be a recipe thrown in here or there just for fun.
Are you guys watching This Is Us? If you’re not, please, just do it now. Every episode makes me alternate between belly laugh and ugly cry.
This is the show that America needs right now: it’s about family, life, love, career, doing the right thing, being shady, and how much our pasts influence our present. And I’m not just saying that… I absolutely adore this show.
Guess what opened up about a month ago? Panera Bread. You guys do not know how happy this has made me. I’ve been a fan of Panera Bread since I discovered them in Missouri. In fact, one of the happiest days of my food life was when my daughter started working there. No, she didn’t give me discounts or share her food with me, but what she did do was send me messages whenever seasonal foods/cookies arrived. That was so many years ago. I thought when we moved here, my PB days were behind me but… happy dance I’ve been eating sandwiches and salads for days. Right now, I’m digging the Roasted Beet, Quinoa, and Citrus Salad. insert eye roll here It’s so good! Every time I go there I think I’m going to try a new salad but my mouth automatically forms those words and I don’t have the heart to make the cashier start all over again by changing my order.
Are you reading anything good? I think I shared that I’ve started an Instagram account to keep track of books I’m either reading or planning to read. You can check out the account by clicking @livingoutsidethestacks. While you’re there, check out the hashtag #igreads and #booklover. Fun, right? Who knew there were so many creative book types out there?
Now, it’s your turn… What’s going on in your world? Anything have you scratching your head or belly laughing? Is there a book I absolutely must add to my TBR Shelf? Have you cooked or ordered anything tasty?
