Happy Thursday guys! One more day to get through until the weekend and I am already dreaming about refreshing cocktails because it has been getting hotttt y'all! And when the weather is hot outside there are only two things that sound good and those are being near a body of water and/or drinking a refreshing cocktail. Let's be honest, I'd prefer to be drinking a refreshing cocktail by that body of water, but I'll take either or right now! One of my favorite simple and refreshing cocktails is a screwdriver and I made it even more refreshing by creating a frozen version that is amped up in flavor! My frozen mint screwdrivers are perfect for your next beach vacation or day by the pool!
I wouldn't consider myself a non-computer person, but I also would not consider myself a savvy computer gal. I get by and know how to do the things I know how to do...you know what I mean? Anyway, I have been putting off creating food recipe videos for a while because it is out of my comfort zone, but yesterday I decided to bite the bullet and create my very first video with a super simple recipe that happens to be one of my favorite side dishes! My crispy roasted potatoes are perfect for any night of the week and can be served at breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I hope it was as good as mine! Parks and I flew back from Georgia on Saturday and spent the rest of the weekend hanging out with daddy. We played in the sprinkler, Canean cooked dinner for me (grilled BBQ crabs and oysters Rockefeller...whhhatttt!) He definitely spoiled me this weekend and I took full advantage! Today I'll be back in the kitchen and catching up on a week from being out of town. Anytime I have busy weeks like this I am always looking for easy meals that taste amazing. My ultimate steakhouse-style salad is one of those wow salads that you totally could have as a meal alone or you can serve alongside a juicy steak! Your choice!
Happy happy Monday friends! How was your weekend? We had a great visit to Louisiana where we ate too much (as always), got to see friends and family, and came home yesterday to a gorgeous Texas afternoon! We spent the day in the backyard soaking up every second of the perfect weather that is for sure not going to stay around for very long! It's days like these where simple meals to me are the best meals. One, I don't want to take too much time in the kitchen away from my guys and two, days like yesterday make me want to eat a light and fresh meal that the whole family will be a fan of. My easy roasted asparagus pesto pasta is so perfect for any night of the week and you are going to love how simple this recipe truly is.
It's almost the weekend! I can taste it, can you? We are headed to Louisiana for the weekend to hang with friends and family and feast ourselves on my father-in-law's famous crawfish. To say I'm excited about his crawfish would be an understatement...I literally eat more than every grown man at the table! There are a few things in this life that I will change my plans for and one of those is a crawfish boil...the other happens to be champagne. Just mention the word and I am there! One of my favorite activities on the weekend is brunch and I think half of that is the fact that I can drink mimosas before noon and it is 100% acceptable. And what's even better than that is a mimosa turned into a popsicle! My mimosa pops swimming in even more champagne are the perfect addition to your at-home brunch plans this weekend!
The weather has just been picture perfect lately and I know that means that the real Texas heat is about to be here in a matter of days, but for now it has been so lovely. We have been spending every second that we can outside in the sprinkler, at the park, blowing bubbles in the backyard...whatever! My boys and I love to be outside whenever possible and so I have been thinking of ways that I can get dinner on the table without having to make Parks come inside while I'm doing it! And since I love to grill, it's the perfect solution to dinner and in preventing a toddler meltdown. My grilled pineapple and flank steak tacos are simple, loaded with tons of flavor, and your whole family is going to love them!
