1. Joseph’s Chocolate Hommus Dip
I discovered this at a Labor Day BBQ this past weekend after one of my husband’s cousins brought it over for the potluck. She brought 2 containers and they sat and sat on the dessert table alongside some strawberries, ignored practically all night for other more traditional desserts. I’m not a hummus lover so I passed over it a few times but finally decided to give it a try. You guys, it was SO GOOD that I took the 2nd container home. Like slipped it in my purse while no one was looking, and didn’t even grab the leftovers from my own dessert I brought to share. I looked it up online to find out where to buy it and it just doesn’t seem to exist on Joseph’s website. Cue the panic. I’ve been savoring it all week and was finally able to track it down at Market Basket after texting my father in law and demanding he ask his cousin where she purchased it. I’ve eaten it with strawberries and apple for breakfast every day since
I go through phases when it comes to drinks. Nothing but sweet tea for a couple weeks, then moved on to hard ciders, then making cocktails at home, etc. etc. I had some incredible Sangria at The Revolution Tap Room in Rochester about a week and a half ago and have been obsessed since. I’m currently working my way through my 3rd pitcher of sangria since that fateful Monday sangria girl’s night.
3. This salad I ate for lunch today
Look, if you don’t follow my Instagram or don’t know me personally, then you may not know this already but my life revolves around food. I’m constantly thinking about what I’m going to eat next. If I don’t bring a lunch to work, then the decision of what to go out and get is agonizing. I am an over-thinker in general, but even more so when it comes to food. My coworker got this salad on Tuesday from The Works bakery café in Portsmouth and was raving about how great it was. So when I “forgot” my lunch today, I had no choice but to try it. Greens, grilled chicken, tomatoes, avocado, goat cheese, avocado-lime dressing, and carmelized bacon. Now that I’ve had the bacon from their salad, I’m obsessing over whether or not they use this same bacon in their breakfast sandwiches. I will report at a later date whether this is the case or not!
4. Amazon Prime Reading
I decided to try to get back to reading more often and unplug a little more at night. I was looking to see what I hadn’t finished yet in my Kindle library, hit the discover button and saw that there are books that Prime readers can download for free. There are some great titles on there too! I just started reading Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum.
5. This tree I saw in Portsmouth
I came across this tree in Portsmouth en route to my incredible lunch time salad today and had to stop and take a photo. I love running across these small acts of kindness. Portsmouth and the Seacoast is full of them it seems. It’s such a nice reminder that there is a lot of good in the world, even when things feel very heavy.
What are you into lately?
Hi there! I'm Breanna, social media + event coordinator for the New Hampshire Seacoast. I am a New Hampshire transplant and have lived here for 6 years and have fallen in love with the seacoast. I love spending time with my husband and 2 rowdy boys. I am constantly plotting my next meal and love trying new places, especially if there will be dessert! I love baking, shopping, playing tourist in new towns, and coffee dates. I am excited to meet you all at our next GNO and start connecting!
