It’s Friday Favorites #40, which means that this is my XL Friday Favorites post. I haven’t decided if I am going to jam pack this post full of favorite things or just keep it normal… we’ll just have to wait and see how things turn out by the end huh?
Favorite Song: I Live My Life by Imagine Dragons
I was listening to this “mellow” playlist on Spotify today and then this song came on. It doesn’t sound to mellow to me, especially when put in the middle of Ed Sheeran and Cold Play but I can’t get enough of it!
Favorite Paleo Yummy: Aioli
Today is Day 12 of our 30 day diet and I am super happy that we have made it this far. No joke, we were struggling for the first 5 days without cake, and no we are soaring through, with major thanks to this paleo aioli!
We didn’t make aioli on the first Whole30, big mistake, cause this is the bomb.com. I am planning on doing a recipe post on different flavor aioli’s soon and will post this one for fish and chips within the next few weeks (trust me I’ve got a stock of like 10 recipe posts to do). In the mean time, check out how to make the perfect mimosa and enjoy one this weekend.
Favorite TV Show: My Kitchen Rules
If you’re Aussie you’ve definitely heard of this show, and if you’re American and love cooking shows you’ll wish it was on TV in The States. Ben and I watch this show every night (because it’s on every night for an hour and a half) while we cook dinner.
Right now the teams of two are hosting “instant restaurants” and setting up a restaurant/cooking a 3 course meal at their home for the other contestants, and are then judged on their meals. We intend to audition in two years when I qualify as an Australian resident. So we’re planning on doing a smilar three course meal for my family next month as a little trial. Should be fun.
Favorite Fashion Pick: Golden Tote
I haven’t bought a tote in months, but this might be the month where I cave. The March items go on sale Monday and I have been loving all of this months spoilers. If you want to buy a tote this month make sure your alarm is set for Monday.
Edit: Just got an email the tote sale has been pushed back one week to March 9th to coincide the launch of their new website.
Favorite City: Tampa, Florida
Tomorrow marks one month until I head back home for vacation and I am super excited. I read this article, 30 Things People from Tampa have to Explain today and it left me smiling from ear to ear. Can’t wait to be back in my city.
What are your weekend plans?
Any ideas on a menu theme Ben and I should go with for our three course dinner? Spanish? Italian? American? Australian? What would you choose? (btw, I have no idea what we would cook if we did an aussie meal… prawns on the barbie and anzac biscuits?)
