Anticipating - Plus Pin Recipes

I have eagerly been anticipating Friday, not because it's been a long week but because of what is going on this weekend!  

Not only do I get to go to dinner with my little sister 
mom and  Derek tonight; at a restaurant I have never tried. 

(Loring Kitchen and Bar, I have been there for a happy hour and it is a neat atmosphere)!

But also two of my besties/sorority sisters are flying in to spend a weekend in the city!

I am extremely excited to see them, and to show them around my city/home state! 
We are playing the weekend by ear, but I would like to show them Mall of America, maybe 50th and France or grand avenue all wonderful shopping destinations!   We have a  lovely sushi dinner (a tradition from college) planned, brunch and a night out on the town!  Stay tuned for the recap of our girls weekend! 

Now before I leave you until Monday, check out these pin recipes that had my taste buds singing this week! 

Lets start with this Honey Lime Chicken!

Which I served up with baby roasted potatoes.  Lets just say I didn't stop hearing about how good this chicken was, needless to say I was happy the recipe turned out so well!  I used my little George Foreman to grill the chicken, and it worked perfectly!  You must make this chicken, super easy just marinade overnight! 

And our last recipe of the week, a delicious bean filled Vegetarian Chili

This chili was perfect, since Minnesota has been having some cool evenings!  I was a little skeptical about how this recipe would go over (especially since there was no meat), but to my surprise it was a winner!  Now I have lots of leftovers to take for lunches, or freeze!  If your looking for a great vegetarian chili make this one! 

Happy Friday Everyone! 


  1. Wish I could be there with you girls this weekend! :) Hope you have fun!

  2. MMM vegetarian chili is one of my favorite dishes, but I haven't made it in forever! Will definitely be making it this week :) And have so much fun with your sorority sisters... take lots of pictures! :)
