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 Inspiration: Toast 12 Ways. The cinnamon roll toast is totally happening.
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 Simple: Roasted Root Vegetable Salad with Chicken. The perfect weeknight dinner.
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.
