Friday Favorites

The weekend is here!  This week seemed to fly by.  Do y’all have fun plans this weekend? Tonight I am going out to dinner with some friends (helllllo, bubbles!) and the rest of the weekend will be filled with soaking up time with my little family.  I’m hoping to squeeze in a workout and a long walk somewhere along the way.  Oh, and Saturday we’re cooking up some fun St. Patty’s Day recipes in the kitchen.  I hope you have the best weekend!

Favorite Flavors:  Lamb Za’atar Panzanella Salad.  Lamb and peas scream spring to me and I can’t get over all the flavors and deliciousness in this one bowl of goodness.

Favorite Side Dish:  Roasted Mixed Potatoes with Spring Herbs and Burrata.  I’m obsessed with anything that involved burrata.  I’m thinking this and a steak would be a fantastic weekend dinner.

Favorite Gotta Have:  Pretty Dish.  It’s no surprise that I want this cookbook.  I have Jessica’s first cookbook and I feature recipes from her blog here constantly.  Basically she does no wrong.

Favorite Pasta Night:  Date Night Mushroom Fettuccine.  And while this might have to happen with a little babe on the side, I have the perfect pinot noir to pair with it.

thin-mint-almond-butter-cups-3

Favorite Midnight Snack:  Healthy Thin Mint Almond Butter.    I like to keep a little something sweet (and healthy) stashed in the freezer for my midnight pumping sessions. Sign me up for this thin mint-inspired sweet treat.

Favorite Read:  The “Mental Load” Falls Squarely on Mother’s Shoulders and it’s Making Us Very Tired.  Don’t get me wrong, Big Guy helps SO MUCH with BG and things around the house but I can’t help but find so much truth in this article.

Favorite Dinner:  Crispy Pan Fried Lemongrass Chicken.  I love a good chicken thigh and I’m craving this simple yet flavorful dinner.  If only I could find lemongrass in this town.

Favorite Inspiration:  How to Set a Formal Dining Table.  I don’t have a formal dining room currently but that’s a “must have” for our “forever home.”
