Friday Favorites: August 15

Favorite Netflix Binge: United States of Tara
The cable went out one night this week during a massive thunderstorm and Aaron was out for the evening at a trivia night, so what is a girl to do? Rekindle my loving relationship with Netflix of course! I remembered that my sister raved about this show a few years back, so when it popped up on my recommendations, I decided to give it a try. I have already finished season 1 and am well on my way through season 2. It's witty and smart and will make you cringe a bit at the awkward situations, but you won't want to stop watching!

Favorite cookware brand: Le Creuset
I had seen Le Creuset pieces on cooking blogs and TV presentations every so often, but I guess I never really paid attention. Boy, do I wish I added one of these beauties to our wedding registry! This week I have been diving in to learn all about cooking with Le Creuset and I have decided that I am going to treat myself to a classic Round French Oven for my birthday. Now I just have to decided which color!!! Ahhh!!!

Favorite meal this week: Grilled Chicken Al Fresco
Last night was a raid-the-fridge-leftovers-for-dinner night so and we decided to pull out the leftover tzatziki, Trader Joe's naan, jasmine rice and hummus and then grill up a few pieces of chicken. I threw together a marinade (olive oil + lemon zest + lemon juice + minced garlic + dried rosemary + dried oregano + salt + pepper) then grilled them up after 30 minutes in their lemony herby soak. Perfecto! The weather was perfect, there were not too many bugs buzzing around and life was sweet.

What was your favorite thing this week?
