Happy Friday friends!
And what a happy Friday it is indeed! I’m on my way home! It’s been 17 days today that I’ve been away, the longest time probably, like, ever.
It’s interesting what you miss when you’re away from home for an extended period of time, and just how easy it is to adapt to new places, too. But, I can’t wait to get home and nuzzle my 3 dogs, check on the progress of my tomato plants (I’m scared), cook in my own kitchen, and of course, lay in the big bed and watch CBS Sunday Morning with my man and my Smudge who will be firmly snuggled up between us. Seriously, it’s the best thing on regular TV. Maybe the only thing.
I’m so lucky to have a job that offers up so many opportunities and gives me the flexibility to mix work with pleasure and family time, and to do it all on my own accord. I mean, the majority of the workforce is beholden to someone else’s expectations and time tables (just like I was for 20+ years) and that makes it a whole lot harder to swing an adventure like I just completed. But with time comes normalcy, and it can be pretty easy to take fortunes and flexibility for granted.
My goal is to never let that happen.
I won’t go into a recap of all that I experienced on my travels right now, but if you want to read a snippet of my last travel leg’s travel mishap, you can read more about it here.
But enough about me, let’s get to why you’re here: THIS WEEK’S FRIDAY FAVES, with a few guest contributors mixed in. Enjoy!
It’s my dad’s birthday and Father’s Day all in one, I think I need to make him his favorite pie.
These kebabs are totally grill legit.
They’d be so good with this super easy side dish. TASTY!
This granola looks totally decadent.
These savory overnight oats are spot on.
This gorgeous fish would make a fab Father’s Day dinner. Totally fresh.
This is such a fun idea of what to serve at a summer party. Let’s get everyone involved.
I’m ready to pick some blueberries and make these tasty looking bars. Ah heck. What am I talking about? I’ll just buy the blueberries from the store :)
But wait. Cherries! I need to bake this too!
First there was frosé (I can’t quit you), but now there’s the frozen negroni (fregroni? frogroni?). Whatever, let’s just CLINK.
One part of my travel adventure was attending a blogging retreat with a few other food blogging friends. Like I have in the past when I’ve hung out with some of my favorite foodie friends, I asked them to share some of their favorite things, so without further ado, let’s get clicking.
Okay, well that’s it friends! I hope you have a delicious weekend, and get into the kitchen to make something good.
