Workout recap 1/19-25

Authentic Italian Potato Gnocchi (Foodie Friday #20)

I wrote this post well in advance because of my traveling schedule but I feel like I have to add an edit for Sir Alan Rickman.  I have seen him in many roles, but being the Harry Potter fanatic I am he will forever be Snape to me.  No actor could have portrayed this tortured…
