Over the holidays, I was looking for an easy cinnamon roll recipe. I didn’t know until recently that so many people made cinnamon rolls on Christmas. My spouse’s favorite food is probably cinnamon rolls, so it was a win-win for everything. He never wants anything for the holidays but will gladly take cinnamon rolls if offered.
If you aren’t celebrating a birthday or holiday, there are still plenty of reasons to make cinnamon rolls.
I decided to try a few new hydration products, including the Skratch Labs Wellness Hydration. Living in the desert, I’m always looking for new hydration products. I can really tell how much the dryness affects my running, even when it’s cold out. Like many hydration products, the Skratch Labs uses “ORS” or oral rehydration solution” which is certified by the WHO and gets into your bloodstream faster. I didn’t really notice a difference in products on the east coast, but I definitely do in a drier climate out west.
The Hoka Clifton 8 is one of the most popular Hoka models out there. It’s lightweight and cushioned. I’m so old; I remember when the Hoka Clifton 1 came out. Anyway, since then, the brand and the shoe have only grown in popularity.
I haven’t run in every model, and truthfully I usually like the Bondi 7 or the Clifton Edge a little better. The Clifton 8 has a more padded tongue, slightly better rubber placement, and an overall faster feel.
While in New Jersey, I got to have a reunion with New Jersey Isn’t Boring at Meemom’s in Wall, New Jersey. While it might not be a true diner, it was nice to catch up. While the “diner purists” might not consider a diner, it was pretty similar and more diner than most things in California.
I was excited to go to Snooze in Del Mar. It’s not the first time I’ve been to a Snooze. My first visit was in Denver, Colorado, in 2017. While in the Del Mar area, we decided to head there for brunch. Snooze is also known as “Snooze A. M. Eatery”.
