Friday Friday Friday!

Hello Lovelies!
It is finally Friday, and one word sums up this week... long!
I am ready for a little R&R this weekend.  But tonight is all about my Butler Bulldogs!
 Thank you everyone for your input yesterday on the pot luck dishes, I ended up making this salad...

I was all ready to bake up something yummy but just lost my motivation as the day went on (does this ever happen to you?).  The salad came together in minutes, and will be a perfect dish to snack on during a game! Maybe the chocolate pretzel cookies or red velvet brownies will be a special treat this weekend! 

Now lets look at this weeks dinners.  
Lets start with Lasagna Rolls from Skinny Taste.  Lasagna is one of those dishes that screams comfort food to me, but I hate how tedious and time consuming the prep time can be!  Lasagna was always a favorite meal growing up and when I was younger I would eat a half pan of my moms lasagna.   Yes a half of pan just for me!   Now I have to say that lasagna rolls are my new favorite way to enjoy this favorite comfort food of mine.  Easy to assemble can be made ahead of time and all the flavors I love! 
I added some vegetarian sausage into the mix and oh man was it good!  Great addition to an already wonderful recipe!
Make these!

Our next meal went from Italian to Mexican with Black Bean and Cheese Enchiladas from Cooking Light.  
My picture did not look as neat as theirs.

The sauce on these enchiladas were delicious, but I think there was a bit to much of it.  The enchiladas fell apart as I served them.  But that did not stop these enchiladas from being down right delicious!  I am for sure going to make these again, only next time with less sauce!
The third week in this weeks pin challenge has yet to be made. 
 Pantry Chicken and Beans. 
Come yesterday evening I just did not have the energy to cook.  So this lovely dish is going to be dinner on Saturday night!  

On a totally random side note this lovely little skirt brightened my day yesterday!

Love the salmon pink color, this JCrew skirt is the bright color part of my early morning!
Anything brightening your Friday morning?
Happy Friday Everyone!
