Menu Friday + some

Happy Friday!

Whew, it has been a week, that's for sure. Between Maggie being here for Spring Break, traveling to and from Washington, D.C. and being at work today? This girl is relaxing this weekend!

Since our schedules were so up in the air, I didn't really cook this week.

I made regular ol' spaghetti and meat sauce and served it with a ceasar salad and a hunk of crusty sourdough bread.

Tacos, black beans and Spanish-style rice.

{Can I tell you a secret? These tacos were made with turkey. And no one even knew! Proves you can sneak in healthy substitutes any time.}

Tuesday we had leftovers, Wednesday I ate at Rustico in Alexandria, Va. with one of Brandon's friends, Brandon, and his fiance, Kimmie. I had the best goat cheese, mushroom and spinach pizza ever! {Brandon had supper with his parents.} Thursday, I had chicken quesadillas in American's {client} Admirals Club. See, I told you it was a crazy week!

Anyway, just for grins, here's a photo of my client, Kent, and me at the National Press Club for the PR News Nonprofit PR Awards. We were named Honorable Mention in one category and won the other category! And yes, yours truly had to accept the award. I was so nervous!

After the ceremony, Kent gave me the nickel tour of D.C., even driving me by the Lincoln Memorial so I could see it and the already-blooming cherry blossoms.

Then he dropped me off at Dulles International Airport for my flight back to Dallas. Whirlwind day, for sure.

And, side note: I had changed into my Baylor T-shirt and comfy pants for the flight back home. As I was boarding the plane, a fellow passenger said to me {loudly in the airport}, "HEY! Sic 'Em, BEARS!!!" I love that even thousands of miles away from Waco, Texas, the Baylor family is flinging their green and gold afar!

Have a great weekend!
