Scenes From my Weekend

Hubby and I had a super relaxing weekend. We spent it my favorite way: In the kitchen!

One thing that I actually love about living in Houston is this time of year! The temperature is in the 70's and 80's and the plants LOVE IT! Everything is blooming in my backyard and it looks beautiful.

I also spent a lot of time watching Food Network and figuring out what I am going to make for Thanksgiving and spent some time practicing in the kitchen

I ended up making some homemade Chick Fil A breakfast & I made a Tiramisu Cake.

The Chick Fil A sandwiches are SUPER easy. First, get the super tasty Sister Schubert Rolls.
 Then get some frozen potato rounds, slice up some chicken breasts into very small pieces (The smaller, the better) and toss them in some egg and breadcrumbs. The secret is triple dunking them in the egg and breadcrumbs to make sure they are extra crispy. We just threw some olive oil in a pan and fried them about 2-3 minutes on each side. Super delicious and super easy!

I am so excited for Turkey Day this week! We are headed to Dallas on Wednesday to see my family! Yay! What will you be doing for Turkey Day?

Happy Monday Everyone!

Sounds like a great weekend! I love Tiramisu :) I'm so jealous it's in the 70s & 80s...we hit a peak at 65 yesterday and I thought it was amazing! Back to the 50s today though...
