Last night’s casual dinner date with Joe & Kate ended up turning out to be quite a fun little evening!
To start, my worries about not having anything good to serve went right out the window after Kate said she had just picked up some panko breaded chicken breasts at the store earlier in the day. PERFECT. Now that the main course was all set, I took care of some side dishes.
Long grain & wild rice
Fresh green beans sprinkled with some Garlic Gold (thanks Gina!)
Leftover roasted veggies
Panko breaded chicken (she got 4 of them on sale for just over $1.00! It was a STEAL!)
It was a great meal!!
After dinner, an idea to watch a mini marathon of the Jersey Shore episodes we had DVR’d was brought up. A little silliness ensued…
Joey broke out “the shirt before the shirt” & Jay started channeling his inner “Situation”
Then we all channeled our inner Jersey Shore selves…
And we even managed to get a nice "family photo” taken in the midst of it all.
Then, dessert was broken into…Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies!
And I definitely ate wayyyy more of these than I needed. Now I remember why I don’t make these very often. They have TROUBLE written all over them!
This morning, I’m on my way out the door to work on my classroom for the day. I’m lucky enough to have Mom coming to help me, so it should be fun.
Before leaving the house, however, a yummy breakfast was required:
PB & J Oats!
In the bowl:
- 1/4 cup wheatberries
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
- 1/4 cup water
- cinnamon & nutmeg
- Bear Naked Fit Granola
- Polaner Raspberry All Fruit
In my new Target bowl – on clearance for $1.38!
Alright folks, I’m off for a few hours. Make sure to check back later on for a fun Fashion Friday post!!
Question for the Morning:
Do you have any fun plans for the weekend??
