Menu Friday

Happy Friday! 

Our news has definitely made this a fabulous day, and a great start to our weekend. We can't wait to move into our new house! 

Here's what we had to eat this week, which, by the way, has felt like the longest short week ever. I feel like Tuesday was so long ago...and I feel like I've had two Mondays and two Fridays in one week. Totally has thrown me off! Note to self: take off the day before and after July 4 next year! 

Moving on...

Southern Living's Baked Linguine with Meat Sauce + asparagus

This was really good and made a ton. We'll definitely be eating on this this weekend.

Modifications: I used venison, since we have a ton, as opposed to ground beef. And, I forgot to take a picture because we'd just returned from being out of town and frankly? I was so tired. 


We loved this...husband, especially. It was the perfect amount of spicy. 

Modifications: I didn't use the coriander and instead used ground cumin and added a bit of chile power to the mix. I also added some chopped cilantro to the mix {and topped the fajitas with cilantro} because we love cilantro. And, I broiled the corn tortillas on high for two minutes on each side to give the fajitas a tiny bit of crunch. 

We spent July 4 at my in-law's, where I had my nice little accident

{I still look like I got beat up, btw. Tacky.}


This was so easy {hello, husband grilled!} and let me tell you, I don't think I'll ever bake a pizza again! Grilled was so yummy. 

Modifications: I used a store-bought, wheat, thin crust {as opposed to the dough}. Also, I purchased pre-made pesto and mixed it with store-bought tomato sauce and used that as our sauce. I used a fresh tomato from a sweet lady in my office {so much better, let me tell you!} and added some Parmesan {"Farmer John" in my family} cheese and mozzarella cheese to the pizza. 

We're grilling out hamburgers tonight and just laying low and celebrating our new casa! 

Happy Friday, y'all!
