Friday, Friday! This week has been quite the busy week and I haven’t done near enough cooking. That’ll all change tonight as I prep for the tailgate tomorrow. Our date night this evening will consist of a glass of wine and lots of time in the kitchen – but sometimes those are my favorite. We have more house guests this weekend and I’m super stoked to see another best friend from college – two weekends in a row, I’m getting spoiled! Eight hours stand between me and the weekend so let’s do this!
Favorite Healthy: Honey, Pomegranate, Pecan Chicken Salad Wraps. Chicken salad is a Southern staple but I love the fall twist to the classic chicken salad. I also like that it’s not loaded down with mayo. This would be a wonderful way to use up leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, too.
Favorite Side: Maple Roast Carrots with Parsley and Pistachio. Over the past week I have seen quite a few gorgeous shots of carrots on various blogs. They’re not the typical Thanksgiving side dish (at least not in my family) but they would be a welcome addition to any spread. The orange and green are simply beautiful.
Favorite House Tour: from Dimples and Tangles. This house is such a fun mix of patterns and color. I’m in love.
Favorite Appy Hour: White Cheddar, Toasted Almond and Crispy Sage Cheeseball. I’m usually weirded out by cheeseballs. But not this one. It would be a fabulous appetizer for any holiday celebration in the coming weeks.
Favorite Stuffed: Coconut Crusted Brie Stuffed Quinoa Bites. Bite size little balls of brie – yes, please! And I am super intrigued by the coconut crust. Someone give me a reason to make these.
Favorite Layers: Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Oreo Pie. Does this not make you drool? And there’s only five ingredients. Say whhhhaaat?!?!
Favorite Fashion: In love with this cowl neck sweater. So cozy but at the same time you can actually wear it out in public and be considered fashionable.
Favorite Fizz: Cranberry Ginger Pear Cocktail. Cranberries are in season and bubbles are always in season.
