Lately, I’ve been giving a lot of updates on our recent trip to Fredericksburg, Dripping Springs and Austin but we’ve been up to a whole lot more than that! If you follow me on Instagram (because you really should), you’ll see that we’ve been up to a whole lot more! Here’s a little recap on our adventures, new recipe successes and sights seen along the way!
Spicy Cajun shrimp in a garlic cream sauce! Holy moly!!! This recipe comes from Damn Delicious and it’s exactly that – damn delicious! It’s also super easy! The only adjustment was using creole seasoning instead of Cajun (it’s the same thing, isn’t it?!). We’ll be making this again. So good!
Weekends are meant to be explored! There’s so much to do! Here are some sights from the past couple weekends.
The Southside area of Fort Worth hosted Open Streets. Magnolia Street was closed off and local businesses lined the area featuring the best of Fort Worth. Restaurants, small businesses, grab a beer and bit to eat, walk, explore and listen to music. What an amazing day and definitely a family fun filled event.
Red Dirt Roads (via 95.9 FM The Ranch) has been hosting their radio show live from Magnolia Motor Lounge the last few weekends. What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon listening to some of best musicians and songwriters this area has to offer. I’m a little short so this was as best as I could get (hands and phone/camera as high up as I could hold it).
Another recipe – Cauliflower pizza. I’ve been wanting to try this for a while and it was pretty tasty! This recipe is fit for about a personal sized pizza so if this is for more than one, double it up! Looks good doesn’t it?!
Weeknight date night! Whoohoo! Mr. S. and I don’t live in the same town so we usually spend the most time together on the weekends but when the schedule allows we have weeknight date nights! It’s so nice to have a date night in the middle of the week. We get to relax and just hang out, enjoy either a good home cooked meal (thanks Pinterest!) or find somewhere local to check out. It’s a great breather to our hectic schedules!
In the future I’d love to start a weeknight date night series showcasing great local deals during the week. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
This week we headed over to Rodeo Goat in Fort Worth (West 7th area) for burgers! Did it ever hit the spot! Recommendations: The Whiskey Burger and some hand-cut perfectly seasoned fries. Maybe not on the diet list but during the week, this is the place to go. On the weekends, there’s a line out the door and around the corner. Weeknight – no line, seat yourself, enjoy the food and company!
I love sending cards even though I don’t do it nearly enough. This is the latest doodle! Do anyone ever color or doodle? Completely therapeutic!
Finally, maybe the highlight of my week. This is the second time I’ve seen this. This past Wednesday, the Medal of Honor was being delivered to a recipient. Traveling from DFW airport to an unknown location, Highway 114 was closed down in the Southlake area. This is the route I travel on a daily basis. All along the highway, people were spotted showing respect and on the overpasses, local firefighters and police officers saluted. To whoever the recipient of this award was, to their families and fellow service members – thank you for your dedication, sacrifice and your service. We are forever grateful.
And once again it’s Friday! What will this weekend bring for adventures? No one knows, we shall see!
What’s on your agenda this weekend?
