bthr book club discussion: terra

Good morning, everyone! Who is ready to talk Terra? I'm super excited! But before we dig into that, I do have a little bit of housekeeping to tackle. When we first decided to do a BTHR book club, lots of folks were interested, but the interest has definitely fizzled as we put the book club into action.

things i’m digging…

buffalo blue cheese chicken dip

buffalo blue cheese dipSuper Bowl parties are my jam. They combine pretty much everything I love in the world into one day—friends, beer, sports, food, clever advertising.

Which is fine if you are one of those amazing people who can pace yourself and only take one or two trips to the bucket of queso, but I'm not one of those people.
