TMA Mondays: Lots To Do


We have all been waiting patiently for Shake Shack to open in the Denny Triangle. Unfortunately, it didn't open on October 6th as planned. If your patience is wearing thin, the only consolation I can provide is that Little Big Burger, originally from Portland, had their soft opening this past weekend and you can get your burger fix in.

Did ya'll know that Nutty Squirrel and Fainting Goat are related? I just found out that the owner of Nutty Squirrel is the daughter  of the couple that started Fainting Goat! The family is teaming up with former Bakery Nouveau pastry chef to stock both Nutty Squirrel and Fainting goat shops with European pastries like tiramisu, lava cakes, croissants etc.

Our Pick of the Week

Even Stevens, U Village - The sandwiches here are not only the best I've had in a really long time, they are even better for our community. Even Stevens tally's up their sandwich sales at the end of the month and donates ingredients for every sandwich sold to a person in need through local non-profit partners. If you go, get the Pot roast dip its mouthwatering.

Instant pot Chicken Noodle Soup - I'm officially a believer in instant pot cooking. My husband and I were feeling under the weather this weekend, so I decided to make chicken noodle soup not out of a can. A regular recipe averaged a total of 2 hours to make, so I prime ordered an instant pot and instead made it in 35 mins.
