Oh man I have the best weekend coming up. .. tonight I am having dinner with my sisters at The Melting Pot – gooey cheese and chocolate fondue –>YES! Then, on Saturday hanging out with the family. Luke is at such a fun age to play with, so I really look forward to spending time just hanging out with him. Saturday night, Laura, is going to come down. We are going to grill – Bacon cheeseburgers!! and I am planning some baking too. Sunday morning –> BODYPUMP!! And then my parent’s are coming down to hang out and go out to dinner. So, busy weekend coming up and I am super excited!!! And I don’t even care that it is supposed to rain ALL weekend. ..
Here are some of my favorites from the past week. . .
This way of cooking the perfect chicken breast that I learned from Iowa Girl Eats. . .
1. Pound out chicken to uniform thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap
2. Season really well with salt and pepper
3. Cook in a medium-high pan
4. About 4 minutes per side – until browned and cooked through
I love this planner. . .it is just from Target. (Blue Sky).
But I love that it is pink. Has monthly tabs. And extra pages in the back for notes and blog stuff! I have tried to use my phone to keep track of everything, but I just like regular pen and paper –> especially colored pens!!
These socks from Feetures!
My husband.. . I really don’t talk about how awesome he is nearly enough.
He is definitely one of my favorites! And especially because he could laugh this morning about the fact that last night I woke him up, to ask him if he was awake, to go take care of the baby. .. which he did! I don’t think I was his favorite person after that last night, but we both laughed about it when this morning I said “BTW, sorry about last night!”
The “My Panera Card” from Panera. . . it gets you free rewards. If you don’t have one, just ask for one the next time you go. This week –> a free caramel skim latte.
A perfect Thursday pick-me-up!! And did you hear? The Strawberry poppy seed salad is back for summer. . . only the best salad ever!!
Any favorites from the week??? Any big plans for the weekend?
