Affordably Living Your Best Life

For The Road | January 2022

A month of a lot, and yet I feel like I have nothing to show for it. It’s been cold, it’s been snowy, it’s been cold, and dark. This weekend we’re sneaking away to the Poconos for a weekend of skiing and puppy cuddles. I’m excited to try out skiing too, it’ll be my first time, let’s see if I can figure out the pizza/french fries thing without falling over too many times. Either way, it’ll be nice to have a change of scenery, try something new, and just break up the routine a little!

Here’s what you can take for the road from me this month:

For the Kitchen // Butcher Block Counter

Still one of the best gifts I’ve ever received, I have been using the heck out of my Boos board countertop cutting board. It’s been amazing for baking and rolling out my bread, I turned it into a defacto charcuterie board for a girls night, and it’s really brought a great look to my countertop. 

For the Plate // Vegetable Soup

It’s been so bitter cold lately, dinner has been the one thing that warms us up at the end of the day. Anything that’s a little spicy and warms you up on the inside has been on repeat on our meal plan, especially this Veggie Soup! It’s got a little spice, as many veggies as you could fit in a pot, and tastes so good! Plus, freeze your veggie scraps to make into stock for the next batch of soup! 

For the Home // Seasonal Produce Reminders from Uproot Kitchen
