It’s Friday morning… and I need a brownie for breakfast.
Nothing says “Saturday morning” like a mid-morning brunch with your favorite people. We’ve had some perfect Saturdays so far in 2015, and they all had one thing in common… BRUNCH!
Check out these local restaurants for some fantastic grub to start off your weekend right!
What’s your favorite Saturday morning breakfast/ brunch spot? We’re always down to try something new!!!
Tonight my teacher friends and I did a really cool thing. We did a progressive dinner around local restaurants… Talk about fun 🙂 We all wanted to see Macon’s finest downtown dining spots, so we came up with a game plan, set aside a night to embark on our adventure, and then ate to our hearts’ content.
We started at Barefoot Tavern and had appetizers. Jumbo soft pretzels, hummus, cheesy waffle fries, and hot wings… Nom nom nom.
Then we went to The Rookery for our main course. Burgers on burgers on burgers. And boy was it delicious as ever!
Finally, we ended the night at Taste and See Coffee Shop with cheesecake and lattes. So divine!
But with all the hopping around, I felt particularly inclined to bless the wait staff that helped us through our journey. We were a large group ordering not a ton of food because we split most of the dishes we ordered, so I told some of the gals at the table what I was planning to do, and several of them joined in by doing the same! When we explained to our wait staff that we were doing a progressive dinner of downtown restaurants, they were excited and even thanked us for including them in our itinerary. Since they were SO gracious, we decided to thank our kind waitresses with 100% tips!
I hope that they were excited to see that we appreciated them for all their work this evening! It was definitely the least we could do since they allowed us to have such a unique dining experience through downtown!
Plus, it was super fun to feel like a Secret Santa so close to Christmas 🙂
Ya’ll… It’s 50 degrees and therefore I’m in a parka… Brrrrr!
So it just makes sense to make a big batch of soup in the CrockPot. This time… Spicy Taco Soup (my ultimate fave soup everrrrrrr)!
Spicy Taco Soup
Here’s what you’ll need:
Here’s what you’ll do:
Ta-da! This is THE BEST recipe to start in the morning and come home to in the afternoon piping hot and ready for you to eat. And it is so easy. That’s my main criteria for recipes if you haven’t noticed.
Also, I’d love to hear about your taco soup variations!! The best thing about this recipe is that I tweak it a little every time to make it slightly different than before! What will you do with your taco soup??
More sweet potatoes = More sweet potato recipes!
I initially wanted to make some sweet potato tater tots, but my food processor is packed in a box somewhere. Loft life… Soooo I opted to make homestyle fries (basically cubed hashbrowns)! YUM!
The only problem… Will wanted sweet brown cinnamon sugar fries, and I wanted salty parmesan cheese fries. Solution? Make both!
Here’s what you need:
Easy-peasy. I actually made a half batch of each 🙂
Here’s what you need to do:
Yum yum! Will loved his sweet homestyle fries, and I favored my cheesy ones! Enjoy them both, and tell us your favorite! Also, let me know if you try a different seasoning! The possibilities are endless 🙂
