Friday Favorites - End of October

October 30, 2020


Hello blog friends and Happy Friday.  
I can't believe it's already the end of October and we will be approaching November. 

I have my Friday Favorites - End of October Edition: 

1.  Crochet Project
I have another crochet project that I'm working on for my daughter.  My daughter is on a roll with requests for me to crochet for her.  I'm using heavy blanket yarn and a large crochet hook for this project.  


2.  New Boots
I ordered new boots online from Costco.  They are Khombu Ladies All-Weather Booties in Black.  These boots will be perfect to wear for the cold winter months with my jeans and leggings.


3.  Cobb Salad
Mr. JCL and I have been eating a lot of salads lately.  We did take-out salad from Sweet Green.  I ordered a Cobb salad that was delicious tasting.  It was packed with avocado, sweet potato, egg, blue cheese, tomatoes, red onion, nuts, and balsamic vinegar dressing.


4.  Crockpot Lasagna
I recently posted on the blog a crockpot lasagna recipe I made.  I was so happy to see that my blog friend Heather from Our Life In a Click made the lasagna but vegan style.  This crockpot lasagna is so easy to make and you can add or leave out whatever you like.      



5.  Reading a Book
I recently finished reading the book Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng.  I enjoyed reading this book and I couldn't put it down.  This book is from Reese Witherspoon's Book Club.  It's also available on Hulu which I hope to see soon.


6.  Magazine Reading
I always enjoy reading each month my favorite magazines.  I always get great recipe ideas, especially around the holidays.


7.  Halloween
We always dress Bosco up in a costume for Halloween.  Last year Bosco helped me greet the trick-or-treaters dressed up as a hotdog.  I'm not sure if we will get any visitors this year due to Covid-19.  Whatever happens, Bosco and I are ready to hand out candy to the kids on our block.





Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a Happy Friday.

  3. Seeing Bosco makes me want to pull out my hotdog costume I have for myself, LOL! But we’re staying home of course. The salad and that lasagna looks absolutely delicious! Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Aww Bosco is such a great sport! I bet he loves seeing the trick or treaters. I'm not sure we'll have any either. I love Sweet Green. That really makes me want to have one of their salads or bowls! Thank you for the shout out on the vegan lasagna. I'm still thinking about how delicious it was! Those boots are super cute and I can't believe they're from Costco! Your crochet project looks cool! Have a great weekend Julie!

  7. Haha! I love Bosco's costume. Adorable! And I saw Little Fires Everywhere. My daughter and I watched it, it was good. I wonder if the book is better. You'll have to let us know! Enjoy the weekend, maybe the sun will come out!!

  8. Your new boots look so warm and cozy! Little Fire Everywhere is on my nightstand. It's actually our book club selection for next April (so I have a bit of time to read it!). I'm a magazine lover also! I find it hard to throw them out even when I'm done reading them!

    1. Thanks for the blog visit Penny. Yes, the boots are great and perfect for the winter. I enjoyed the book and hope you like it too. It's good that you can wait a little bit to read it. Oh, I'm the same with hating to throw away some of my magazines. Have a happy Friday and weekend.

  11. Aww your dog looks so cute in his costume! I hope you have fun trick or treating :) We don't really do that here so we are not expecting anyone - although maybe I should dress my dog up in case, he does have a few costumes, haha! :)

    Hope that you are having a lovely weekend :)

  13. Hi Julie - I do not crochet ( used to, maybe will start again...) but my sister in law is always making something so I send her your ideas. She is not " technically" savvy, so I usually print out your ideas and send them. Thanks for sharing! I have not posted this week...my dear husband had an "incident" at cardiac rehab ( and he was only a few sessions from graduating the program) last week. They did an ekg right there, scheduled a stress test, went in for that and there was an issue, long story short...he had another cardiac cath and spent three days in the hospital. Not a great time to be hanging out in a hospital! Home now, and hopefully back on track. I made him his favorite brownies for Halloween ( tried to make them healthy) and hope to post that next week. Thanks for all your great ideas....love the HOT DOG!

  16. I think that is the last book I read. I have been too scatterbrained lately to sit and concentrate on a book. Love the little hat you made and those boots look perfect for fall and winter.
