We made it another week! I don’t know about you – but this week was a busy week and I’m glad to have a fun weekend ahead. Come 5pm, I hope my biggest worries consist of whether the rain will ruin my blowout and what wine to open on Saturday night. See you guys Monday!
Favorite Dinner: Thai Beef with Basil. The flavors in this weeknight dinner sound incredible. And this recipe reminds me that we need to plant Thai Basil this summer.
Favorite Showstopper: Candied Citrus Cake. How gorgeous is this cake? I cannot get enough citrus lately.
Favorite Devour: Caramelized Pineapple, Bacon and Goat Cheese Guacamole. Quite possibly the most trashed up guac ever. And I love it.
Favorite Wake-Up: Bodyweight Lower Body Workout. I typically hit the gym on Saturday mornings fairly early. But sometimes I enjoy sleeping in and this is a great at-home workout that requires no equipment.
Favorite Spring: Lemon Almond Roast Chicken Salad. I love all the things about this simple, southern chicken salad. Especially the addition of crunchy almonds.
Favorite Sip: Simple Coconut Green Smoothie. Drinking one of these in the morning would transport you to a tropical island. If only I could really transport myself right now.
Favorite “Appy” Hour: Port-Cooked Mushroom Bruschetta with Brie. The most perfect little bite for entertaining with. Or for eating at home with your husband.
Favorite Flavors: Meyer Lemon and Honey Roasted Fennel. This is the kind of side dish that steals all the attention from the main dish.
Favorite Bite: Dark Chocolate Key Lime Pie Truffles. Key Lime Pie is a favorite of my Momma’s. I might just need to make a batch of these Easter weekend.
Favorite “It’s 5 o’clock somewhere”: Spicy Cucumber Margaritas. A pitcher of these and a batch of the guac that I mentioned earlier and you’d have yourself one heck of a Saturday.
Have the best weekend ever.
