Hello and happy Friday!
Greetings from sunny Las Vegas where the forecast is a bright and sunny 110 degrees. Oh yeeaaaaahhhh.
We are here for my daughter’s basketball tournament and like many of you across the country, we are warm, warm, warm. Why is it we all talk about the weather so much? Probably because like food, it’s something we can all relate to.
While these teen girls make bonds and memories to last a lifetime (and win a game or more) we are the team chauffeurs/cooks/lifeguards/poolsharks. Before we left home, I prepped ahead for the crowd and made a triple batch of my moms homemade spaghetti, my MIL’s tastes-just-like-Taco Bell tacos, and the girls favorite baked French toast. Who needs a casino buffet when FoodieCrush is in da’ house?
So if you’re wondering if it’s worth it to cook comfort food that requires an oven or stove in the middle of the desert heat, the answer is, you betcha. Because when cravings call, FC answers.
But enough about me and a couple of sweaty teenagers, let’s dig into this week’s Friday Faves.
