Today’s episode is all about saying NO! If you think back to Episode 19 with our goals for 2017, Erinn mentioned she wanted to learn how to actually say “NO” instead of saying “yes” to taking on too many obligations. Consider this episode a how-to! We chat the important things: the things we have had a hard time saying no to, how to make “no” a part of your vocabulary and an action in your life, and even examples of how we have firmly said no and survived to tell the tale. Erinn also shares a great metaphor for why saying “no” truly matters as once told by her sociology professor back in college.
We also crunch (like, crunch realllly loudly) on some crusty bread topped with whipped butter, radish and ground pepper. It’s an easy-peasy creation but we think it’s also an easy snack. Rachel made it, we both devoured it. Get the recipe below!
- 2 tsp. unsalted butter
- 1⁄4 tsp. sea salt
- 2 slices baguette, cut on the bias (I used sourdough! So good!)
- 2 large radishes, sliced into 1⁄8" rounds
- Fresh ground black pepper
- In a small bowl, blend together butter and salt using a small spatula until butter is soft and airy. You can also use a kitchen aid mixer.
- Spread baguette slices with butter, arrange radish slices on top, and finish with a grind or two of pepper.
