Coffee and Cocktails at the Casa

Friday Favorites

Friday, April 6, 2018

O.k., this is my first post so be sure to check the “about me” tab as soon as I can figure out how to do it!

I will be linking up with Andrea from Momfessionals,
Shay from Mix and Match Mama, Narci from Grace and Love, and Erika from The Slaughters as soon as I can figure that out, too!

#1)  This has been spring break week!  It was much needed!  I didn’t travel anywhere and had a major case of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) while I was changing the kitty litter for my friend while she was on the sunny beaches of Florida yesterday.  I have enjoyed the free time to just do as I please at home, though.

#2)  It has been nice to take a break from cooking dinner as much as I normally do.  We have enjoyed Mellow Mushroom and Joella’s hot chicken to name a couple of places.


#3)  I just love Netflix!  I am currently watching Parks and Rec, New Girl (in anticipation of the new season starting next week!), and Nailed It! In addition, I was told to start Girls Incarcerated.

#4)  I learned a new way to make moist chicken and I believe it came from Cup of Jo. You put EVOO in a pan and salt and pepper both sides of a chicken breast.  Cook each side for one minute and then leave in pan with lid for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat and leave lid on for another 10.  It worked for me and made delicious chicken that I put on top of pesto bow tie pasta with zucchini.  I was wondering if the thickness of the breast would affect the cook time.  Try it and see what you think!



#5)  Margaritas at the movie theater and the comfy lounge chairs are my final favorite this week!  This is pretty new for my town.  I feel like all the theaters are going to this, no?  It did strike me that Margarita and popcorn don’t really go together, though!

Have a wonderful weekend and please be patient with me as I figure this out!  I do want to give a shout out to Christina at Carolina Charm for her great post that finally convinced me to just jump in!

Wishing you a delicious cup of coffee and at least one cocktail today!
