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