Friday Favorites

Guess what?  I finally finished that book I’ve been reading for months.  The book could have been about 100 pages shorter – the end was fantastic but a lot of the middle was unnecessary (in my opinion).  Just thought y’all might like that update.

Back to the whole “Friday” thing.  This weekend has been a long time coming.  Oh, there’s nothing special planned – except a lot of time with Big Guy and wine and cooking and if it really does snow, more wine.  This weekend is all about relaxing.  We’re running on fumes after a crazy busy start to 2016 but hopefully this weekend will recharge us and get us ready to tackle the rest of January.  Wherever you are and whatever you do, I hope you make this a wonderful weekend.

Favorite Cozy:  White Bean Soup with Crumbled Bacon and Spiced Brown Butter.   I want to dive head first into that bowl of yumminess.

Favorite Flavors:  Salt and Vinegar Chocolate Tart. I’m obsessed with salt and vinegar chips and I am even more intrigued by this sweet, tart and salty dessert.

Favorite DIY:  25+ Creative Ways to Repurpose Old Kitchen Stuff.  Some of the ideas are super fun while others would probably turn into a “pinterest fail.”

Favorite Slice:  Kale Pesto Pizza.  Obviously basil isn’t growing in our yard currently.  I love the kale + pecan combo for the pesto.

Favorite Read:  Saving Grace by Jane Green.  I think I’ll purchase this for my Nook today.  It’s weird, I hate my Nook in the summer but love it in the winter for reading in bed.

Favorite Crave:  Jerusalem Hummus.    Yesterday morning while I was at the grocery store, I wheeled past the hummus but none of the flavors caught my eye.  Now I want hummus and I don’t have any.

Favorite Superbowl:  Crispy Baked Hot Wings with Mustard Dipping Sauce.   Let’s be honest, the game is more about the food than the game for me so I’m already brainstorming a menu.

Favorite High Maintenance:  Boozy Clementine Lemonade with Brûléed Citrus and Mint.  My kind of cocktail.

Cheers!
