Après Hour

Happy Friday! Welcome to the après hour, the newest addition to Ski Boots in the Kitchen! One of my favorite “activities” after a long day of skiing is après-ski! If you’ve never experienced après-ski in its true form- come to Park City now, I will show you how its done, like this….

Après-ski, which is french for “after skiing” is the act of going out after skiing for drinks, socializing and relaxing! If you are lucky enough to enjoy your drinks from the bottom of the ski hill you can usually count on watching some hilarious carnage of tired skiers taking their last run down an icy trail (if you’ve ever been to Vail and enjoyed a margarita on the deck of Los Amigos you know what I’m talking about). After a long work week you deserve a break to unwind too! Regardless of where you are, at the bottom of the ski hill or at your desk, you can enjoy your own après hour with some of my favorite websites, blogs, recipes, drinks and photographs that I’ve gathered from around the internet. So sit back, enjoy a cocktail (if you’re lucky) and get ready for the weekend! Cheers!

✓ My favorite new website, “Blonded By Style” it’s all about style, fashion, travel and of course my favorite, food & drink! Plus Mia and Zoe take beautiful pictures!

✓ If you like dogs, this will make you laugh, really hard.

✓ I want these mugs

✓ And I want to be sipping this cocktail out of those mugs

✓ Park City has beautiful sunsets

✓ I love this cookbook “Share” by Women for Women International. It has stunning photos as well as recipes from both renowned international chefs and recipes from women living in war-torn countries. An added bonus, 100% of the proceeds go right back into those countries, providing women with business training and job skills so they can get back on their feet.
