Hello, Friday! I actually have the day off (well, minus a few texts and minor things I’ll need to handle throughout the day) so I’m kicking off the weekend with a workout, lots of coffee and a massage (um, there is a knot in my back that is literally about to make me cry) before having lunch with a friend. I’m also looking forward to Big Guy coming home after another long week in Cali. I’m not sure what’s on the agenda for the weekend except for this: a car wash. Holy moly. Between the snow and the salt and everything in between, my car is straight up nasty.
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend (the weather here is going to be amazeballs) and I’ll see ya Monday!
Favorite Brunch: Cheesy French Toast. Cheese. Cheese. And more cheese. That little cheese “crisp” on the right side is killing me right now.
Favorite Comfort Food: Baked Short Rib Manicotti. Cheese + Carbs = Life. Apparently I’m really craving cheese.
Favorite Lunch: Asian Chopped Salad with Sesame Soy Vinaigrette (in a jar). The perfect packable lunch.
Favorite Unexpected: Black and White Nursery. And no, I’m not expecting. But I’ve never considered a black and white nursery. Until now.
Favorite Craving: BBQ Havarti Burgers with Sweet Potato Curly Fries. I forgot to mention we’re planning to have burgers on Sunday for dinner. With a side of Grease LIVE! Oh, and probably a side of curly fries.
Favorite HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MAGGIE: Everybody’s Birthday Cake. My sister’s birthday is on Sunday and I really, really wish we could spend the weekend together. But we can’t. But if we were together, I would totally make her this cake.
Favorite Day Dream: What’s Gaby Cooking Home Office. Now that I work from home a day or two a week, I’m dreaming of having my own little space. It’s simple yet fresh and bright.
Favorite Super Bowl Sunday: Best Beef Chili. The Panthers are in the Super Bowl, so there’s no way I won’t be watching. At least until halftime. Because, let’s be real – 4:17am isn’t fun on Monday if I stay up for the whole game. So now I need to make the Super Bowl fun…with FOOD.
Favorite Handheld: BBQ Pulled Pork Pop Tarts. I can’t help myself. So many decisions to make before Super Bowl Sunday.
Favorite Cheers: Mambo Taxi. A margarita hugged in a sangria swirl. I want that kind of hug.
