Does anyone else feel like this week completely DRAGGED? Even though it was a “short week.”
I still can’t believe it was Memorial Day on Monday & that we are now entering the summer season. Like what? April felt like a year & now we are swinging into June next week- WTF!
Any who- this week we cooked some meals that have become staples in our weekly rotation- sauce & meatballs, my Orzo Feta salad, Feta & Spinach Chicken Burgers and steak on the grill! I promise next week I’ll be back with some new recipes, but I just needed a bit of a break this week! Plus next week is our grocery shopping week so I’ll load up on new ingredients!
Oh and I made some chocolate chip banana bread– because duhhh it’s a quarantine ritual now!
NEW TV SHOWS
Nothing super new (haven’t started Sweet Magnolias yet) BUT HBO Max came out this week. I guess it’s a new & improved version of HBO. AND they have all seasons of Friends available to stream! Anyone else missing that show since they removed it from Netflix? Full transparency, I subscribed to HBO Max because they are airing a Friends Reunion show! The special was supposed to be filmed in March, but Covid 19 fucked that up. Supposedly it will be filmed at the end of this summer- I cannot wait!
I just finished Feels Like Falling– soooo cute. The perfect summer beach read. I’ll share more details about this book in next week’s post, but if you’re looking for a feel good easy beach read- grab your copy now.
Another new Pampered Chef item that I’m loving- the manual food processor. I HATE chopping veggies, especially onions so this chopper is a lifesaver. I don’t have a regular food processor & definitely don’t need another clunky kitchen appliance taking up counter space, so this little chopper is great. It stores nicely in my cabinets, doesn’t take up much room & you even get a bit of an arm workout in when using it!
I have a love/hate relationship with shorts. Especially denim ones aka jorts. I’ve loved this pair for the past year but wanted one more pair of distressed shorts for this summer. I found these & hoping they fit when they come in! Fingers crossed.
I bought my Yeti mug at the beginning of quarantine & am SO happy I did. I use it every morning & at night for my golden milk lattes. It keeps my coffee super hot (there’s nothing worse than cold coffee) & the bright color just makes me happy. And it looks cute on my desk. Definitely investing in the tumbler next!
