Who’s Hungry | Alaskan Eats

On this day in 1867, Secretary of State William H. Seward spent 7.2 million dollars on the purchase of Alaska from Russia. At the time, some Americans criticized this purchase, calling it “Seward’s folly”. It wasn’t until major discoveries of gold were made in the 1890’s that Alaska was seen as a valuable acquisition. Today, we know it was the right move.

To celebrate this great land that I now call home, today’s Who’s Hungry is all Alaskan!

  1. Sourdough Bread from Grit
  2. Reindeer Hot Dogs from Travel and Leisure
  3. King Crab Eggs Benedict from Confections of a Foodie Bride
  4. Slammin’ Alaska Salmon Burgers with Garlic Dill Aioli from Allergy Free Alaska
  5. Tequila-Lime Halibut Tacos with Red Cabbage Slaw from Use Real Butter
  6. Baked Alaska from Food Network

Birthday Babe

Here are a few photos from various celebrations early this month.

My babe Bekah, my boo, & I celebrated early with brunch in downtown Anchorage.

Once in California, I celebrated with my family in Los Angeles.

Finally, I celebrated my BFF Ashley’s birthday in Venice along with some of our friends.

Because I live in Alaska and my family & dear friends live in California, we don’t normally get to spend special occasions together. It was really such a pleasure to celebrate with all the people I love this year. Truly a fabulous start to my new year!

How do you like to spend your birthday?
