Friday Five: Stick a Fork in Me, I’m Done!

Hi friends!  Well, it’s day 42 of my quarantine, and I am over it.  OVER IT!  I work from home (even before CV) & I live alone.  I was primed to thrive in a quarantine, and to a certain extent I am.  However, 42 days of little to no human interaction is a lot.  I would simply love to give someone a hug.  How are y’all hanging in there?

I have been a real lazy bones this week, and all I really want to do is talk about my tower garden.  Here’s a progress shot – the seedlings have been transported to the tower! IMG_1722

But, alas I do have five favorite things from the week! E69E6C8C-FE02-48C9-9B30-10EAA1E1DDBF_4_5005_c

One: Okra

Y’all, I love okra!  I know a lot of people don’t like it because it’s “slimy.”  If your okra is slimy then you didn’t dry it enough after washing them.  Also wipe your knife blade off after every few cuts.

I love okra sautéed with onion, garlic, & sometimes bacon.  The Define Dish’s cajun okra is super delicious.  But, this week I made oven fried okra using this recipe. IMG_1733

Two: Design Darling

Have you checked out Mackenzie’s blog Design Darling?  Is that not the most perfect name for a design blog?  I’m very invested in her house remodel…I’m living vicariously through her at the moment as I dream about renovating my house on the daily.  Mackenzie also has a fantastic weekly newsletter.

She has this little questionnaire on her blog today, so thought I’d fill it out here.

What you’re reading right now: I just finished Our Stop.  So cute!

A silver lining of quarantine: I finally started the garden I’ve been talking about doing for years.

Someone you’re excited to see after quarantine: I’m hoping I can go visit my my Mom for Mother’s Day.  I haven’t seen Mama J since Christmas!  I think Texas will still be in lockdown though.

Your first meal after quarantine: Oh my god, any meal in a restaurant!  Probably sushi because that is the one type of cuisine I refuse to make at home.

Something you’ll never again take for granted: HUGS.

Now, you copy & paste and tell me about yourself in the comments!

Three: Empanadas

I randomly discovered these empanadas at one of the HEB’s here in The Woodlands.  I specifically love the cheeseburger empanada & make it for lunch at least once a week.  I like to plate it over a bed of romaine lettuce, diced tomatoes, & diced red onions – this way it is a fully dressed burger!

Four: Beverly Hills is back!

Oh, I’m so excited that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is back! rhobh570

This season looks like it is going to be so good!  They have completely broken the fourth wall, which I love.  Should I recap this season?

Five: RoRo’s

Okay, on the recommendation of Brittany from Loverly Grey, I ordered some dinner rolls & cinnamon rolls RoRo’s Baking Company.  Stick a fork in me!

So, clearly I’ve eaten my way through this week…

I fell asleep last night at 7:30p, so I haven’t had a chance to watch RHONY.  I’ll do that this weekend & post the recap by Monday.

Until then, I hope you all have a superb weekend.  Superb?  Who says that anymore?  Whatever, you get it.

Kiss Hug,
