Last week was a total douche. Everything that could go wrong did, shit was stressful, people were assholes, and I had insomnia and anxiety by Thursday night. I was certainly ready for a weekend. It was a good mix of social and productive; and I used Sunday's solitude to get my shit together for the upcoming week.
Friday MFD & I walked los perros then headed back downtown to have cocktails with Chris & Diana at Tir Na Nog. We met the Sannellis and Leslies at Maggiano's for a fabulous family-style meal. I love my framily. I also love being a tourist in my own town. I do not love being out for the evening with a dead camera battery.
1- Banana chocolate chip muffins. Check back tomorrow for the recipe, son.
2 - Stuffed cabbage casserole. This was easy and delicious comfort food. 
Coach Bingo. No winning, but a fun night nonetheless. And I got to wear my newest scarf even though this is not a flattering photo of it or me. 
You know what's a bastard chore? Winterizing flower beds. I spent almost two hours on it, and it's still not done. I was two bags of mulch short as you can see. I also ran out of yard bags so I still need to pull my potted flowers too. Still, a good dent. And my yellow door still makes me happy every single time I pull up to my house.

Then, it happened. I started. A new obsession has been born. Those Sons are bad MFers! Charlie Hunnam, call me. 
Laundry, serenity, iced tea, Sunday Soup, fresh bread, and Sunday dinner happened too. But nothing in life is as important as Sons of Anarchy. Ok? 
1 - This week's breakfast is egg salad, made while watching SoA.
2 - I love roasting a chicken for Sunday dinner. I feel Ina Garten-ish.
3 - Cauliflower mashed - so easy and good. I just add 2 oz of light cream cheese, a tablespoon of butter, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper to taste. 
5 - Gus and Maisel (Maisel is the black speck).
6 - Cauliflower sweet potato soup for this week's lunches. Not bad, not my favorite. 
7 - Geege and Maisel.

I closed the kitchen for the night when this happened. Three scavenger dogs were attempting to infiltrate the scene while I screamed like a banshee for them to get away. 
What about you?

  1. back off, bitch; JAX IS MINE!!!!!

    i LOVE SOA! some of the seasons sort of get shitty but hang on because this season is THE SHIT!!!! every episode, i'm all "NOOOOOOOO!" as in, NO IT CAN'T END NOW!!!!

    Vodka and Soda

  2. I love that you had the wherewithal to take a picture of the shattered mayhem before cleaning it up. Kudos! Glad the bread survived.

  3. Oh, that roasted chicken looks sooooo good.

    Loved all the Friday night pics! Glad you had a good end to a shitty week.

  4. I just have to say that I'm so happy all the babies are getting along now. I love how they always have to be near each other. But I do have a question... does she love Gus or Geege more?

  5. I want to move in with you, so you can feed me. LOL. My dogs flip their S when things break, and then coincidentally I flip mine too.

  6. LOVE stuffed cabbage but it's always so time consuming to make. I will try to make your version over the weekend. btw, I bought the L'Oréal mascara that you use... love it and the $6.99 price tag :)

  7. this is how i know i'm a bad gardener. i don't know how to winterize anything. shoot.
    sorry last week was rough but looks like you made up for it with a fab weekend!

  8. Love SOA! Gosh last week was douche for me too! I hope you have a great week!

  9. Glad you had a beautiful night out w/framily Fri night & a serene Sunday until the breakage. That cabbage casserole looks great.
    This is a beautiful fall day!
    Wish it would get no colder than this.
    I will carpe diem- checking out your guest post now.
    love your MOMMA

  10. I haven't watched SOA yet, I feel like I'll get sucked in and marathon watch it so I need time.
    I didn't even know winterizing flower beds was a thing. Glad I'm not a homeowner.
    I need to make mashed cauliflower because mashed potatoes are my favorite but of course it's bad to eat them as much as I'd like to!
    Hawkeye sprints away if anything falls in the kitchen, thank goodness. She doesn't even come close.

  11. You have to winterize stuff? Oops. Maybe that is why my yard always looks like shit. My bad! My dogs are constantly on the look out for dropage, as they see it as the prime opportunity to find food they would have been otherwise denied.

  12. I LOVE SOA!!! It is one of the greatest shows of all time, and it makes me sad for myself that I waited so long to watch it. But now that I am, I can't stop.

    My weekend was stellar. Spent it at a conference. Met many amazing new people, saw lots of old friends. Drank Guinness like water. Best weekend in a long time.

  13. I keep hearing about how good Sons of Anarchy is, but haven't started watching...yet.

    I do a cauliflower dish with smashed cauliflower (not fully mashed, because that is too much work), cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar, and parmesan. Steam the cauliflower, smash it, mix all that shit together, then bake it until everything is melted. It is amazing. I want some right now. I wish the leftovers didn't stink up my refrigerator.

  14. Love SOA!!! So glad you are joining in on the fun! I am going to come visit and then steal Maisel. So stinkin cute! Teach me your gardening ways! I can keep my house plants alive but outside plants not so much.

  15. I hate bad weeks! ANd bad dogs! I love that Gus is cozy with Maisel - unless that was a suffocation attempt...

    Ok. SO a few weeks ago I made banana chocolate chip muffins to eat for breakfast. Those things went bad FAST! i loved them...I'm hoping you have a great tip, besides eating all 12 withing 2 days...

  16. Hello Friend,

    I'm glad your weekend made up for your shitterific week you had. I love Tir Na Nog. And Maggianos. And Philly. And SOA!!!!! (ALL of the seasons are amazeballs)

    I cant wait til Gwen and I are part of TWTW!

  17. YAY FOR SOA! I am glad that you found time to start it! I am behind a season but I bought it on Amazon because I had this grand plan to watch it all in a week and then start the current season. I am failing miserably.

    Mashed cauliflower is my frenemy. Last time I added way too much liquid and it turned out like grits practically. Maybe I should measure? Nahhhhh.

  18. I need to get on this SOA train. Must find time for Charlie...and I hope this week is better than last...nothing all that deelish food can't cure!!

  19. thanks for that cabbage recipe! I have one in my fridge and couldn't figure out what to make it with! Hoping to try out that recipe this week

  20. Hey! Just stopping by from Steph's blog and I see your a Philly girl too...

  21. Stuffed cabbage casserole?!?!?! Sounds amazing. I love cabbage.

    I also love Maggianos. Yum. I agree it is great to be a tourist in your own city.

    Bingo is the best!

  23. Holy cow that's a lot of shenanigans! I'm glad that I have a black thumb, so that I don't have to winterize the yard...I'm just waiting for it all to die. Haha.
