Three things I love


Each month I share a new recipe I've tried, something I've read and want to recommend, and something I am craving, want really need. 

Eat it: I normally talk about a recipe I've made for this category, but all I can think about right now is the milk I got at the farmer's market last Sunday. I'm all about the farmer's market in the summer (it's even on my list!), but this was the first time I visited the Holy Cow Delivery stand. We got a half gallon of chocolate milk and it was gone by Tuesday. 
Chocolate milk is not the best in the world for you, but it was a nice treat (especially since we're at the point in our sugar detox where we've given up all desserts), and if this gets us back into the habit of drinking milk on a regular basis I'm all for it. I just wish you all were local so you could have some too!

Read it: The Murderer's Daughters by Randy Susan Meyers - My book club read this last month and wow was it good. I actually haven't written a full review yet on goodreads, because I'm still processing it...weeks later. I've always said the best books are the ones that are hard to write reviews for and this book is no exception. The opening chapter pulls you in, knocks the wind out of you, and then throws you into the rest of the story challenging you to keep up. I absolutely cannot stress enough how incredible the writing was - you need to read this book.

Need it: This Love Letter Locket necklace from janiecox's Etsy shop. Appropriate considering how much I enjoy love letters, no? I actually ordered one (and may have sent one onto a friend), and have barely taken it off since I received it!

Do you have a local farmer's market you visit? Have you read The Murderer's Daughters? Don't you just want to buy everything in that Etsy shop?

What do you want to share today - something to eat, read, or need?

I feel the same way about the local non-homogenized milk I've been buying at Whole Foods... there's cream! On the top! SO GOOD!

Yes, we have a fantastic farmers market in downtown DSM that gets 20,000 visitors a week. It's nuts. I haven't noticed milk there, though. I would totally get some. I love me some chocolate milk and this made me crave it so bad.

We read Murderer's Daughters for Books 'n Bars last year and it was a big hit!

Ooooh, that Etsy shop is adorable! Love it. :)

Yum - I love chocolate milk. Even though I avoid dairy, I do treat myself to a chocolate milk after my long runs!

Eat it - avocado - I've been eating these like they are going out of style

Read it - I just finished Cutting for Stone which I really liked!

Need it - for my leg to stop hurting. Seriously, it's hard to fall asleep at night and stay asleep due to the pain of my abrasions from my fall. I keep applying neosporin and bandaids but it just keeps hurting! :(

I read The Murderer's Daughters, too. I liked but didn't love it... your glowing rec is making me think I should try again?!?
