Top Five Friday #67
Happy, happy Friday to you all! This week was absolutely crazy busy and I'm writing this post a lot later than usual (aided with the help of some pumpkin beer and leftover Papa John's pizza), so there's no time for an intro today. Let's get right into these favorites so we can enjoy the weekend!
Since I'm currently enjoying my favorite type of beer, I figured I should at least share what I'm drinking! Every year, I get a few mix packs of different types of pumpkin beers and pick my favorites for the year. This year that would go to Sam Adam's 20 Pounds Of Pumpkin, New Belgium Pumpkick (thank you Lynne!) and Southern Tier Pumking. Do yourself a favor and grab one of these, put on a flannel, and enjoy the crisp fall air!
I had to share my favorite recipe of the week- these delicious fritters! They were super simple to make, and I substituted two "chia eggs" for the regular eggs to make it vegan! (2 tablespoons chia seeds mixed with 6 tablespoons of warm water). I think these would be great with some extra seasonings or some other grated veggies thrown in (carrots sound amazing)!
The finale of America's Got Talent aired this week, and the winner was 12 year old Grace (who, by the way, was the first woman to win since the very first season)! I'm not typically a fan of singers on the show, but this girl is incredible. She not only sings, but also plays the ukulele and writes all of her own songs. The song she performed for the finale was my favorite of any of her past performances, and I can't wait to see what she'll come out with next! She reminds me of a mixture of Sia and Taylor Swift, and I promise you will fall in love with her.
Have a great weekend!
Fall TVIt's that time of year when all of the good shows start, and I could not be more excited! Dancing with the Stars started this week (#TeamValaur), and I'm looking forward to a new season of How To Get Away With Murder and Quantico. What other shows should I look out for?
Grace Van Der Waal
Electro Dub Tango - Mundo Bizarro (such a cool mixture of electro with tango)
Sia - The Greatest (I'm just going to make this my motto during my next race)
Eric Clapton - Layla (oldie but goodie!)
Beyonce - 1+1 (for some reason I can't stop listening to this lately)
Have a great weekend!
