Friday Favorites

Better late than never!  We’ve had a really good week over here.  I mean, don’t get me wrong, we’ve had some rough moments but all-in-all it was a great week.  Apparently we’re entering a “leap” in her development today and I’m praying it doesn’t make us both manic.  Any fun plans for the weekend?  We’ll be having another low-key weekend but I’m excited to get in the kitchen and cook a few meals. As much as I’ve LOVED having dinner brought to us by friends I’ve missed being in the kitchen and cooking.  Here are a few of my favorites from the week:

irish-cheddar-fondue-pretzels-7

Favorite St. Patty’s Day Appetizer:  Irish Cheddar Fondue with Spiced Guinness Pretzels.    You won’t catch me drinking green beer next weekend but I am totally into this cheesiness.

pbcups-4

Favorite Sweet Treat:  Homemade Healthy Peanut Butter Cups.  I ate my last piece of dark chocolate last night which is an excuse to make these for my after-dinner treat.

Favorite Sunday:  Carnitas and Guacamole Pizza.  I don’t think we’re making pizza this Sunday (gasp!) but this yummy combination is happening verrrrry soon.

Favorite Festive:  Guinness and Black Bean Chili Loaded Spiralized Fries.  Not into the fondue?  Here’s another St. Patricks Day option.  Now I’m torn though…

power-and-plyo-workout-1

Favorite Work It Out:  Power and Plyo Workout.  I’ve been slowly getting back into working out and I love this workout that combines cardio with strength training.

carrotcake-2

Favorite Mash-Up:  Healthier Carrot Cake Banana Bread.  Big Guy would flip over this bread.  I think I may try to turn the loaf into muffins which would be perfect for breakfast.

Favorite “Appy” Hour:  Yogurt Queso with Cilantro Cream.  I can’t wait for warmer weather so that we can enjoy a glass of wine and an appetizer on our new screened in porch.  (In reality, this won’t be quite as relaxing with a little one…)

Favorite Book Club:  Little Fires Everywhere.  Adding this to my “must read” list!  Everyone is reading this book.  And then raving about it.

Favorite Refreshing:  Green Goddess Margarita.  Like I said, no green beer for me.  How about a cucumber margarita?  Yes, please.

 

Cheers!

(And don’t forget to “spring” forward on Sunday!)
