Five For Friday: Heading out of town!

Hey y'all!  Happy Friday.  This was a long week considering it was the first one I have been at work for 5 consecutive days in awhile.  Linking up with some lovely lady bloggers for Five For Friday,  head on over and show them some love, just click on the pics!

Bright on a Budget 
I am heading out of town to visit my best friend since I was 6 years old!  That means we have been friends for, gulp, 30 years!  I have seen her on the reg over the years, but this is the first time I am visiting her in her town in about 5 years.  Crazy.  Living in Texas and a wonkily work scheduled boyfriend got in the way the past few years, and now those obstacles are gone and there is no excuse to keep me from getting back to semi-regular visits.  Going to be a fun weekend!

The last time we saw each other, at the high school cafeteria!
Two members of our Hogs for the Cause team, Sweet Swine of Mine, had birthdays this week.  We celebrated by attending a Moises Pinot Noir event with bread, meats and cheese at St. James Cheese Company.  It was a fabulous time with some great people and great food and wine! Unfortunately the event sold out super quick and we all couldn't get tickets. Missed the ladies that couldn't attend!

My favorite flavor combo of the evening: Tomme cheese, Marcona almond , black cherry jam and pink Himalayan sea salt.  It was paired with Moises "Mis Amis" Pinot Noir, which is one of my faves because it behaves like a Cabernet!
We need to put a selfie stick on our supplies list!
Have you tried Avocado oil?  It is made for cooking at high heat and the taste is so light you won't even know it isn't olive or vegetable oil.  I have been cooking my chicken and veggies with it and I love it!! Get it and tell me how you like it!  My sisters and I are hooked.

Who else is obsessed with La Croix?  It is my jam.  I used to have a serious Diet Coke addiction and I used to let myself have one every now and then.  Now I have a LaCroix.  No calories, no caffeine and no sodium.  Plus it tastes great and is made with natural flavors.  My current obsession is the Mango flavor.  It is so good!  I have mixed it with gin and tequila as well and it is even more delicious! Have you seen the Mango flavor in your neck of the woods?

Do you have a Bitmoji? If you don't know it is an app wherein you create an avatar of yourself and you can add it to your iPhone keyboard and add it into your texts. (I think android has it too).  My friends and I are obsessed and have been sending them back and forth. Get one if you haven't, it is free and so fun!  With all the birthdays this week, this was my most used.  

What are your favorites from the week?  Hope y'all have a fun filled and/or relaxing weekend!

Happy Cooking!
