Week in Review & Pretty Pintastic Party #192

Pretty Pintastic Party Features #192

TGIF! I hope everyone had an amazing week and is ready for the weekend! We’re back with another weekly Pretty Pintastic Party, but first let’s sneak a peek into the week of This Scattered Life.

Is it cold where you are? We’ve had some frigid days here in the Rockies. I’m not a fan of cold weather, but it sure makes for some great days of perfecting recipes in the kitchen, working on home renovation projects, and catching up on movies that everyone else has already seen.

This week we had a couple of “deep-fried” days after the gym. (Because if you’re gonna deep fry everything you find in the fridge, you probably should at least do a little cardio first). Our Monte Cristo Sandwiches with Cranberry Pepper Jelly turned out even better than we’ve had at Bennigan’s, and the onion rings & sweet potato chips were fantastic as well. Still need some adjustments on the zucchini chips though.

It hasn’t been a completely fried weekend. We also made seafood crepes and had the kids over for lasagna. And I finally unboxed the Instant Pot that Jeff and the kids got me for Christmas.

For some inexplicable reason, I made ham & bean soup over the stove and used the Instant Pot for hard-boiled eggs. Pretty sure I should have done that the other way around so we weren’t slurping up beans at bedtime.

What about you? Do you find yourself experimenting in the kitchen more when the mercury dips? I’d love to hear what things you’ve got cooking. And if you need some inspiration, you can be sure to find it at this week’s pinning party! Shall we??
