Friday Favorites


Oh, I just love when a Friday arrives.  We’re spending another weekend close to home and I can’t say I’m upset with the lack of “crazy” plans.  Life is busy enough so I’m savoring the slower weekends with Big Guy.  I hope your weekend involves some laughter, love and something delicious.

Here are my favorites from the week:


Favorite Skillet Dinner: Spicy Sesame Roast Chicken.  I adore all of the ingredients and flavors in this not-so-complicated dinner.  Sweet honey, nutty tahini, salty soy, spicy Sriracha, and loads of deliciousness from garlic and ginger.


Favorite Slice:  Banh Mi Pizza.  How colorful and unique is this pizza?


Favorite Make Ahead:  Apple, Cranberry, Almond Mason Jar Salads with Greek Yogurt Poppy Seed Dressing.  I think it’s time I add this to the lunchtime rotation.


Favorite Wish List:  Aerin Mediterranean Honeysuckle Perfume.  They had me at “escape to the sun-drenched, azure Mediterranean.”


Favorite Intrigued:  Reverse Seared Steak with Garlic Herb Butter.  We make a pretty mean steak but I’m always willing to give new techniques a try.  This steak starts in the oven and then moves to the stovetop…interesting.


Favorite Bright:  Whole Grain Olive Oil-Poppy Seed Loaf with Meyer Lemon Glaze.  All the sunshine earlier in the week reminded me of bright Meyer Lemons.  This bread is gorgeous and I adore the lemon-poppy seed combination.


Favorite Mouthful:  Beer Caramelized Onion Burgers with Tarragon Honey Mustard.  I’m so mesmerized by this burger that I’m at a loss for words.


Favorite Thought:  10 Choices to Make Today that You Won’t Regret Tomorrow.  Believing that tomorrow is a better day. You will never regret looking on the bright side, or being hopeful, or starting the day with a smile.


Favorite Fashion:  Spring Forward.  With the arrival of Spring, I can’t help but think about pulling out all my favorite warm-weather clothes.  I also would like to update my closet with a few items: an off the shoulder shirt and a white dress.  And I pray the chambray trend never goes away!


Favorite With Salt:  Palomas with Salty Chili Sugar.  I’m going to try to find a way to make this happen this weekend.
