This is going to be one food-filled weekend! Then again I must ask myself, what weekend isn’t? Tonight we plan on meeting some friends for Pine State Biscuits on Alberta, then maybe going out on the town for a bit. I also owe Ktams a burger since he found out I binged on a Five Guys burger after my 8 mile run last week (oops. Food is my “other man” I suppose). That means we are off to Little Big Burger (or possibly Killer Burger) for dinner tomorrow night.
I’ve been having a lot of difficulty running since my 8 miler last Sunday–and no it wasn’t my post run snack that did it. I’ve been having issues with my piriformis, and it’s literally driven me crazy all week. It’s not that it hurts to run, it may actually hurt less? It’s that it hurts to walk, sit, stand, and do just about everything else. No worries though, my sports medicine sissie-in-law has me doing a ton of stretches to engage that muscle and calllllllm it down. I’m also going through a lot of frozen peas 😛
This Food Lover’s Friday I’m taking you out to dinner—then I’m making you breakfast! Hot, no? I kind of imagine this is what a date and morning after would have looked like if Ktams wasn’t the outstanding cook he truly is!
From Hor D’Oeuvres to Dinner
Nachos can be pretty dangerous—because they can make you uncomfortably full 😉
I took the below recipe for some delicious looking hor d’oeuvres and turned it into a meal fit for a weeknight. Yes, it was messy, but it was also delicious! I would highly suggest making my BREAK OUT THE CHIPS Guac (because it’s spicy and delicious)–then using a chipotle or very hot salsa to make the chicken as not a ton of heat really sticks to the chicken. I liked topping our nachos with some hot sauce!!
Breakfast Shake & Take!
I’m interested to see how much of a buzz we get off of this shake and if the hunger pangs come on faster because of the caffeine!
Remember to follow me on INSTAGRAM to see what I’m cooking up for Food Lover’s Friday before it hits the web! I always will hashtag #FoodLoversFriday so you know 😉
Have a great weekend!!
