A few weeks ago, legs of lamb were on sale at the grocery store, so naturally, I wanted an easy leg of lamb recipe. I’ve cooked lamb chops but never leg of lamb. I didn’t *really* even know what to expect when the leg of lamb arrived. There was an actual leg in it. Now before you say “duh,” a lot of time, the actual leg bone is removed. Mine was not.
So looking for an easy leg of lamb recipe became challenging. The easiest would be the instapot like this recipe, but mine didn’t fit. So I opted for the second easiest leg of lamb recipe: roasting.
The Heaven on Earth Bakery in Azalea, Oregon, is located right off I-5. While it doesn’t have diner in the name, it has all of the characteristics of a local mom-and-pop diner. They’ve been around since 1974, so they have definitely stood the test of time.
Truthfully on my drive north, I was looking forward to Heaven on Earth Bakery. Why? They are known for “the best cinnamon rolls ever.” My spouse and I have huge sweet tooths, and shortly after, our favorite cake, fall cinnamon rolls. So it seemed natural to make a detour to the Heaven on Earth Bakery.
Recently I had the opportunity to try a few Green Green Goo Products. Just by the name, you’re like, “Green Goo, what’s that?” You can easily find all of the information on their website too.
Green Goo is a brand that makes portable first aid and body care products. Heck, they even make pet products now too! They only use plant-based ingredients and are all-natural. They are also women-owned and family-run. Supporting and shopping at small businesses is important to me, so I was looking forward to trying some of their products out.
One of my goals for 2021 is to use more natural and sustainable products. After living through a fire season in California, it became important to me to more sustainable and eco-friendly products.
Let’s talk about the B-word. No…not that one. Running Burnout.
Burnout. We all go through burnout, whether it’s a running burnout, life, or something else. For instance, towards the end of living in New Jersey, I was feeling stale. Doing the same things every day. I didn’t realize it, but I was probably burned out with running too.
Then I got injured with running. Then the pandemic hit, and everything changed. Then I moved across the country. Needless to say, 2021 is not really where I thought I would be.
