It’s Friday, so that means that it’s time for my weekly Friday Favorites post.

Friday Favorites

I ordered a new to me brand of protein powder last week and really liked it. I got the Pure Protein Vanilla Cream (affiliate link) flavor. It literally taste like vanilla cake batter when I use it in smoothies. My current go to recipe is yogurt, frozen berries, a bit of orange juice, and protein powder. My dad had a taste of the smoothie and even he admitted that it was pretty tasty.

Red Ensign Mill Street Beer

My boyfriend bought this for me to try during our last date night. We had eaten at Mill Street Brewery last year (it’s a Canadian brewery with a restaurant/brewery in downtown Calgary). we decided to split it, and it ended up being delicious. Even  my boyfriend said he liked it even though you could taste a hint of raspberry in it. Red Ensign is definitely a beer that I would get again.

I can’t be the only one who’s fallen in love with Halt and Catch Fire over the last three summers, can I? The fourth and final season starts on Saturday and I can’t wait. Essentially it follows five people who have all worked together at some point in tech/computers/the beginning of the internet. The first season was set in the mid 80’s, and this last season will be set in the 90’s. It’s pretty crazy to think of how quickly technology and the internet changed in those 10 or 15 years. Donna is definitely my favorite character. I believe past seasons are on Netflix, so give the first episode or two a try – I think you’ll get hooked.

 Jordan's Granola

I found this granola when I was out shopping last week. I hadn’t tried it before, so I thought I’d give it a go. It only has oats in the granola, so there’s no seeds, nuts, or dried fruit. Surprisingly I kind of liked it like that. I typically mix granola into Greek yogurt for breakfast in the mornings, and I liked how simple it is. Definitely something I would buy again.

What’s a favorite of yours from the last week?
