Welcome to another Monthly Scoop post – January 2021! First off, happy New Year! Isn’t it crazy that it’s 2021? January held so many fun, precious memories to us. From romping in the 15 inches of snow we got with Queso & Amos, to creating comforting recipes to a little life change. We’ve got lots to catch up on!
Here in Nebraska, we got a massive snow storm that brought 15 inches of snow! It was pure bliss to me! I couldn’t resist the idea of running Queso through the snow, so Brooke Confer Photography helped me make that happen! Look at some of the amazingly fun photos she got:
Even though we got a lot of snow in January, we still spent quite a bit of time outside at the farm!
Another big January happening: John started Paleo! He’s loving it and is feeling really great, but it has also been an adjustment! Especially with all my blog food and recipes that he can’t eat – friends and family are getting stockpiled haha! 🙂 Just swing by with some tupperware and I’ll fill ya up.
Every Winter, we try to do a couple things. One: watch all the Harry Potter movies (YAS). And two: read a book series together that has been made into movies! Last year we read all the Harry Potter books before we watched the movies, and this year, we are doing the Twilight series! We’ve made it through 2 books and movies so far!
KJ & Company Update
Well, here goes: I’m officially FULL TIME with KJ & Company!! Cue all the confetti. Last January, we started to really pray about where to go with KJ & Company and for God to show us what to do. And boy, oh, boy did He! The opportunities, doors opened and just the continue pull at my heart at this is what is right was so amazing to see play out. A year later from all that, here we are! I’m so so excited to see where God is going to take KJ & Company and can’t wait to share this journey with you guys!
January’s recipes were so fun to create! Recipes can seem somewhat flat and boring after the holidays, and I wanted to make sure that wasn’t the case here! As always, I strived to create fun, delicious recipes with easily accessible ingredients that you feel comfortable making in your own kitchen. Click on your favorite recipe below and get to cookin’! If you make any of my recipes, I’d love to hear from you! Shoot me an email, post a comment or share on social media tagging @kjandcompany or using #kjandcompany!
- Aussie Bites from Costco – so addicting!
- Primal Kitchen Dressings/Products – my favorite is the honey mustard dressing!
- Target PJ Shorts – I now have multiple pairs of these. Perfect for sleeping!
- Brown Butter – I finally jumped on the brown butter train and it was SO worth it! Makes your cookies next-level!
- Impact Gel Woven Saddle Pad – once I locked eyes on this saddle pad, I just had to get it for Queso! Matches him perfectly!
- Siete Taco Seasoning – since John has been doing Paleo, we’ve been searching for cleaner ingredients! The taco seasoning was so so good!
We’ve got Valentine’s Day upon us! February will also officially be my first full month full-time with KJ & Company, so I’m so excited for it! I’ve got lots of yummy recipes up my sleeves that I can’t wait to share with you all.
