Hello all! Happy Friday! This was a long week! Linking up with Amanda for Friday Favorites! This was a short feeling week, probably because last week felt so long. Here's what I have for this week.
I went and checked out Pizza and Pies at Paradigm Gardens Monday night. It is an urban farm that provides food to local restaurants. They have fun events all the time and I had never heard of it! It was so lovely.
|It is in a weird area but perfect.|
|The outdoor kitchen was something out of my dreams!|
|The pic of my pumpkin sour cream pie was much prettier than the one of the pizza!|
The New Orleans Zephyrs (our minor league baseball team) has changed their name to the Baby Cakes. This was by a vote of the people apparently. I just can't.
|I get what they are getting at, but seriously?!|
We had our office Thanksgiving luncheon yesterday. It was good. Tummy is stretched! Do you have one at your office?
What are you up to this weekend? Hope you have a great one!

|Love this group!|
|There was fun dancing, a drag show, a silent auction, lots of yummy food and lots of wine, just what the doctor ordered!|
|We sold Jambalaya from my pal Kristen. Get some it's really good!|
|And we had a 50/50 raffle. The winner gave us some money back!|
|You can find my gumbo recipe here.|
This week should be great one! Heading to a fun event tonight that was cancelled last week due to weather and then work work work work work the rest of the week! How was your weekend? What did you do? Hope you have a great week!

Hello all! Happy Friday! This was a long week! Linking up with Amanda for Friday Favorites!
|Mimosas and sleeping in are in order!|
|Well, neither of them will leave a great legacy, but I digress...|
So here is my list of things that I think are amazing, and most of us agree are amazing. Tell me if you agree in the comments, or give a list of your own!
Shows like This Old House, Fixer Upper and House Hunters. Isn't it fun to watch people house hunt or renovate a house into the one of their dreams? Maybe I am biased, but I just love these shows and find most people do too. I miss cable!
|And a pup watching TV at that!?|
|I love my friends! Bonus, we are kicking pediatric cancer's ass here, who can't agree on that?|
Vacations. Who doesn't love a vacation? Whether it is my favorite that includes flip flops, the beach and a cold beer, or camping, or museum touring or skiing etc.; a vacation is something we can all agree on. Just maybe not together.
Sorry for the heavy post today. I solemnly swear I will be up to no good this weekend and will recap it Monday!
Have a wonderful, splendid weekend!

Who needs pizza or pasta on a Friday night? (Roasted tomato, Brussels sprouts, garlic and sausage bowl)
|Roasted, delicious, low carb...what more could you ask for?|
|I love when a plan comes together, even when it isn't the original plan. |

Hello friends! It was a long week. Staying up Wednesday night for that whole world series game made it feel longer. Linking up today with Amanda for Friday favorites. Cheers to the weekend!
|Just the University of, not you if you live there!|
- There were two tied NFL teams
- The Indians lost the world series in extra innings by one run
- LSU beat the #1 team in the nation in Baton Rouge (I wish I would have been there)
|Sneak Preview! I took this while sitting on the couch, blogging is easy, eh?|

I had happy hour with my two of my three Sunday movers at Bayou Beer Garden. I love this place and now it is biking distance from my house! Score!
Friday night I took a few more loads and then cooked in my new kitchen for the first time. I made my old standby, a clean out the fridge tortilla pizza
|I will tease you with this!|
Mid City Yacht Club!
|They put a big giant pickle on Luke's and my burger. We hate them. So we went half bun!|
|I had nacho envy!|
