My Current Favorite Things

favoriteHere are a few things I am currently obsessed with:the-night-of-headerMy sister-in-law Ashlee suggested I watch HBO’s The Night Of because she knows I love watching murder mysteries.  This is an American eight-part crime drama television miniseries based on Criminal Justice, a 2008–09 British television series. I am currently on episode 6, but have to wait until the 7th and 8th episode air on HBO.  It starts a little slow, but then gets REALLY GOOD! If you liked Broadchurch, you will like this one!gritDave suggested the book Grit:  The Power of Passion and Perseverance because we talk a lot about wanting to raise our kids to have grit.  The book is very interesting and delves into why West Point cadets and Navy Seal trainees quit after putting so much effort into getting accepted into the respected programs.  The author explains why having a high IQ does not always guarantee success.  She also talks about what parents can do to help increase the chances that their children will have grit when they grow up.  The book is based on scientific studies from at least 40 years ago. This is a great read if you are looking for insights on why some people have passion for their jobs and others don’t.  IMG_7818-1024x682I bought this Hatch Chile Jalapeno Jam at HEB the other day when the chef was sampling it on top of salmon.  It was so good and can be used for a wide variety of recipes. I made a salmon for dinner and spread a small amount on the top of mine! 41MX2ktsDYLI found this grape/cheery tomato cutter at a store in Rome, but they sell them on Amazon for around$12.00. This is a great stocking stuffer or gift for someone who seems to have it all.  It’s perfect for those with small children who need to slice grapes!

My question for you, what are you currently obsessed with that I should know about?
