405 – Vintage Shopping

Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode, we:

Notes from the past!

Found a message from the past
In a recipe we made in October we left notes for future us. Past Ruth and Chad were very wise. We’re going to keep putting notes in to our recipe manager, Paprika.

Remade an old Blue Apron recipe
For dinner on Saturday, we decided to pull out an old Blue Apron recipe – Shiitake & Hoisin Beef Burgers.

Went vintage shopping
We hit up Tip Top Atomic Shop in Milwaukee to find some bowling shirts from Chad. Then we visited BC Modern Furnishings which was super cool. Ruth’s been following the owner, Eric Lewis, on Instagram. He told us,”I started chasing my passion instead of chasing a paycheck” which totally inspired us.

Made our own pizza for Wineza
We made pizza (and Ruth made her first Instagram Story!) on Friday. We have a good pizza dough recipe, so got all the toppings and made pizza at home. But first, we stopped at the wine bar.

Resolute Cabernet

Went out for burgers
Once again we visited Vintage 38 with burgers from Ricardo’s across the street and paired dinner with a  Cabernet Sauvignon by Resolute.

112 – Couscous, Smoke, and the Maker Mindset

Welcome to Savoring Our Lives!

In this week’s episode, we talk about:

Budget Update
We’re still using Mint to track our money and trying to be mindful and responsible. We chose to make a Blue Apron recipe instead of going out. While Chad really dislikes couscous he was glad we stayed home and made dinner.

Smoke Alarm Fun
Searing pork for another recipe meant too much smoke in the house and the Nest smoke alarm let us know it was ready to go off. This was the first time since we installed the Nest alarm that it was about to activate.

Maker Mindset and Fashion
One of the employees at Chad’s client this week was an inspiration because he is always willing to take on new challenges and help move the company forward. He is the complete embodiment of the growth mindset.
