weekend by megan

oh weekend, how i love thee.

i had a sleepover last night at my best friends house. we were supposed to work on our student teaching portfolios for many hours, but instead we ate tomato, artichoke, and feta pizza (n0 sauce) from rotolo’s and made brownies with homemade icing.

we made the icing with lots of powdered sugar and several tablespoons of skim milk. oh and a tsp of vanilla extract. the icing melted on the brownies and it reminded us of oreos. so yummy.

we also watched dan in real life, and i am officially obsessed with sondre lerche. every single song in the movie was sung by him, and he is wonderful!

but, now i must work on my student teaching portfolio…since i did not last night. it’s still a happy saturday…

…so enjoy your day!

football friday by megan

happy friday!

This morning at the gym I watched Gilmore Girls and it made me very happy! I love that show…Lorelai’s way of thinking and living is just so wonderful to me. She and Rory are the epitome of mother/daughter best friends…and that makes me feel happy for some reason.

I am happy to report that the Chicken Orzo Salad with Goat Cheese I made last night for dinner was a winner!

IMG_7651It’s really pretty! I love the bursts of color from the grape tomatoes and the spinach. I used spinach instead of arugula and it turned out really delicious! Also, before I served it I topped each serving with goat cheese crumbles. My family loved this salad so I was a happy girl. I love to be in the kitchen…cooking, eating, whatever! Also, we ate this salad lukewarm. I don’t think it was meant to be hot. I am going to eat it cold today for lunch and see how it tastes at that temperature, too. Y’all should try this recipe! It’s very light and perfect for summer.

Tonight is the first Saints pre-season game! I am not much of a football gal, but I do love to support and cheer for my Saints!! I may not know the football lingo…but I do know when we make a touchdown! We are going to watch the game at my aunt & uncles house and celebrate my uncle’s birthday at the same time.

So with that being said my evening will consist of…salad, wine, pizza, birthday cake, football, and family. Who knows, there may be ice cream thrown in there too! Love.

I hope y’all all have a wonderful Friday!
