Happy last Friday of February. Cray, right? Ready for the weekend? Me too! We don’t have much planned and I’m really looking forward to sleeping in and going with the flow. I was busy marking things off my list this week. My BIG to-do list. You know, that one with all the big adulting things. Got a new windshield…finally. Mine has been cracked for over a year. Ha. True story – Bay + I wear sunglasses when we go through the car wash, because one time I envisioned the windshield shattering in our faces. Yet, I didn’t replace it? We just wear sunglasses…problem solved….lol. I got a new phone. If you know me, then you know it’s been long overdue. We are currently working on naming him. It’s a silver phone, which seems so masculine. So, we’re calling it a him. Scheduled an Edward Jones appointment. Wheeled and dealed with Dish for a lower monthly payment….it always works. Try it! Skipped the gym this morning and deep cleaned my house from 5am – 7am. Rollin into the weekend with a clean house is a must! It feels so damn good. Anyway, now that all that adulting is out-of-the-way, I’m ready to get this weekend started!!!
5 things on my mind……
ONE – TJ’s Haul + Menu // What would you guys think about me sharing my TJ’s haul and weekly menu? Basically giving you a grocery list and recipes. Showing you how I use all the fun finds from Trader Joe’s. From breakfast to lunch and dinner ideas. The cauliflower crust pizza I made this week. Did you see it in my instagram stories? That one will for sure be first up. Ohhh, and how about halibut tacos with TJ’s delish green goddess salad dressing + roasted corn salad?
Back to my question…..
Is that something you all would be interested in? I’m thinking about possibly dedicating a week to it. Which will be a lot of work for my ass. Ha! But, for you, I’d do it. If you’re into that kind of thang!
TWO – F*ck That an honest meditation // My Mom tagged me in a post with this meditation. I kinda love it. Try it. It’s actually really relaxing. Or maybe I’m just really, really missing the F bomb? Ha!
THREE – Pesto Scones // My sincere apology for this photo. It’s terrible. It’s actually why I’ve waited so long to share this recipe. My iPhone 6 plus was on its final legs. Since upgrading yesterday to the iPhone 8 plus, I’m literally dead. Why didn’t I do it sooner? The camera on the 8 is ah-maz-ing! I almost want to re-make these pesto scones and give them life. In the meantime, here’s this simple recipe…..
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons butter, cubed
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- 2/3 cup buttermilk
- 1/4 cup pesto
Here’s what you’ll do:
Preheat oven to 375. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
In a stand mixer, combine flour + sugar + baking powder + salt + butter cubes. Mix until you have small crumbs and butter is evenly distributed.
Stir in parmesan. Slowly add buttermilk while continuing to mix.
Lay out a piece of parchment paper and place dough in the center. Make a crater in the middle of the dough and add pesto.
Fold dough in half, alternating directions until pesto is mixed.
Roll dough into a 1 inch rectangle. Slice into triangles. Don’t worry too much about the shape.
Transfer to prepared baking sheet and bake for 18 minutes.
We dunked ours in chili straight from the oven. Really good!
FOUR – Stripes + pattern // All my homegirls told me NOT to wear this outfit. So, you know what I did? I rocked it. Alex + Sarah + Bay knew I would. Sometimes you just gotta break the rules and wear something that’s a little funky.
FIVE – Links I ♥
