Easter Plans

Hey hey, how was the weekend?
Ours was super laid back and entirely un-postworthy.
On Friday night we skipped cooking and grabbed Chinese takeout.
We had my parents over for dinner on Saturday night and then I woke up with a scratchy throat yesterday.
I spent the most gorgeous Sunday reading on the couch.

Hopefully next Sunday I will be feeling much better, because it's Easter!

What do you have planned?

We are going to attend the 11:00 am Easter Service at St. Stephen's,

I'm not sure what I'm wearing yet...
What do y'all think of this dress?  I love the halter style, though I'm hesitant of bare shoulders at church.  I found it online in the Nordstrom Sale section.  
I would definitely pair it with more Spring-ish shoes.

I'm not sure what our plans are after church, but I'm sure that one of our meals will involve this dessert.  
Recipe for my No Bake Chocolate Eclair with Fudge Icing posted here.

Hooray Hooray Spring has Sprung!

Tasty Tuesday

What's for dinner?

Here is what's on our table this week!

Notes:

Monday-  I use the McCormick recipe and it's simple and delicious.  One change is that I only use 1/2 cup of sour cream.  It's comfort food that doesn't feel quite so heavy.

Tuesday- My breakfast tacos are turkey sausage, egg, and cheese topped with black bean salsa.  Initial recipe can be found here.

Wednesday- K loves chicken with rice so I usually make this at least every other week.  It's an inexpensive meal that hits the spot.  My favorite part of this dinner is the gravy I make from the drippings.

Thursday- Yum!

Friday- Garlic burger bun, topped with fresh basil and mozz. Oldie but goodie recipe here.

Saturday and Sunday nights are a toss up...

Anything tasty happening with you this week?

Weekend Update

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.
Ours was gone too quick.
Friday night we kept it easy with a date night at our fave neighborhood spot, Mondos Delite.
It was the perfect weather for a glass of wine on their twinkling patio.
We were not alone in our decision and ran into several other JI couples with same idea.
This picture doesn't really capture the essence of the night, but here ya go:

I worked Saturday and then questioned why I signed us up to host supper club that night.  I managed to make it home and slam it out, cleaning and cooking like a crazy woman.
Truth:
We had fried catfish nuggets, red rice, and pioneer woman's baked corn.
Look at these cuties:
Sunday we were lazy bums: reading, eating, watching tv.  Did anyone catch the Intervention premiere last night?  K refuses to watch with me but I can't help myself.  

Then I blinked and it's Monday.
Did you have a good one?
