Friday {Food} Porn:: 7 Feasts in a Jar

Hello Luv-lies,

How’s your week been? Did you get done all that you set out to do?  Are you as glad as I am that it’s Friday?

Once that clock hits the weekend hour, it’s ‘me’ time.  Many, many years ago, my weekends were no different from other days of the week.  Mostly work, work and more work.  Back then, the main interruption – and the one thing that brought some ‘normalcy’  to my crazy work schedule – was the need to sleep.  And I even slept ‘fast’ – four hours and I was ready for more.  I called them ‘power naps’.  Today is a lot different.

These days,  my weekends are mostly unplanned.  I kind of let the day  *and the weather*  dictate what happens for the day.  I do have to admit that I spend a lot more time pouring through my subscription of magazines.  Even those have changed.  Used to be that my magazine stash was mostly about fashion.  And, although I had a few  *very few*, food magazine, they were mostly for the fantasy meals that I  “… one day [was] going to make”.  Yeah.  Right.  Today it’s just the opposite.  Very few fashion magazines.  Who needs print when you have Pinterest?  Right?

Now there’s more food magazines and they’re not just for my ‘fantasy meals’.  I’ve actually started to make some of the ‘fantasy meals’ .  This is big for me!  Yes.  Back in the day, finding {and cooking} new meals for the sport of it, was not on my list of ‘favorite way to spend a leisurely weekend’.

One of the trends that I am liking   *I posted about it a little earlier this year *  is this idea of  the ‘meal in a mason jar’.   I think that you can make just about any meal into a ‘feast in a Jar’.  Salads, desserts, drinks, appetizers.

 Clever. Clever. Clever.

I’m Thinking Something with a Tortilla Chip…

Good Tuesday! Luv-lies,

I’m sure that, with The Fourth of July being a couple of days away,  your weekly ‘To-do’ list is as jammed packed as mine.  I haven’t quite figured out what’s on the menu.  Frankly, it’s past the point of worrying about the menu.  It’s times like this that I am sooooooooo  glad for the blogosphere! 🙂

I’m thinking simple.  Simple ingredients.  Simple in preparation time.   But not simple in flavor.

Maybe some type of  ‘taco inspired’ dish

Maybe one of these …
