Five Things Friday: Short and Sweet

19 Feb

Happy Friday! I can’t believe it’s been a whole week since I checked in with you guys but things have been pretty crazy this week. I was feeling a little under the weather with a slight cold for most of the week and by the time I had time to sit down and write, I was just exhausted and crawled right into bed. We have a pretty busy weekend ahead of us so I’m going to try to keep today’s post on the short side with some random thoughts for you guys.

  • I have been killing it on the cooking front this week!

I made pot roast in the crock pot on Sunday for Dan’s Valentine’s day request which was delicious. On Tuesday we made a new-to-us recipe for egg and avocado spaghetti squash boats and then on Wednesday I made eggplant pizzas (with homemade sauce) all by myself while Dan was on a fire call. It was definitely a successful week for home-cooked meals!

  • With that being said, we enjoyed a freaking amazing dinner last night at Cheeks Chicken in Manchester. 

After reading the amazing Yelp reviews and a recent article in the Hartford Courant, I knew we had to try this place. I had the chicken and waffles (my first time ever) and Dan had the spicy chicken sandwich. This place was incredible and we will be back, probably for our next cheat meal!

  • Stitch Fix Update: I kept three items!

I debated and conferred with several people on what to do (again, #firstworldproblems). I came to the decision that it really wouldn’t be worth it for me to keep all five items since I knew I wouldn’t wear those purple pants and same goes with the purple top too. I kept the open back top, the cardigan, and the polka dot tank top and I’m very happy with my choices!

  • I’m attending a fun event this weekend at Cookshop Plus in West Hartford.

I was invited once again by the lovely Kat for a cooking demonstration along with a taste of the coffee from their coffee bar. Cookshop Plus is a new cooking store which has recently opened up and I can’t wait to visit! Stay tuned for a full recap next week!

  • The rest of this weekend is going to be pretty hectic, and I’m totally okay with that.

Tonight we are having Brian and Natasha over for dinner and tomorrow is my Dad’s birthday so we are doing a sushi lunch for that. Sunday is the Cookshop event and then we are heading down to the casino for a concert. It will be busy but it’s all good things so I’m looking forward to it!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and stay tuned next week for some good stuff coming your way!
