Bites of My Life

A perfect little short week followed up by a perfect big fun weekend. Just had a few days of work to get through last week before I was Dallas bound for the annual Red River Shootout. A special visit from a friend, a sushi making class and Hello Fresh meals to cook made the week skip along quite quickly. 

Woke up at the crack of dawn to head south Friday morning. Got our shopping out of the way early before it was a full fledge best friend reunion. I was skeptical of how my first post-grad OU/Texas weekend would go, but it was easily one of the best. It's now a built in weekend every year where all of my friends will be in the same place at the same time. It even meant a reunion with my sweet Molly! Her team may have won, but we aren't letting our schools get in the way of things. It was a year too long since our last meet up, and we are not letting that happen again. Molls says she is coming to OKC and I am telling all of you to help hold her accountable. 

My Sooners may have lost, but the weekend was an overall win. Until next time Texas, you always show me a good time.

-A much deserved visit from a best friend called for a delicious new salad recipe. Recipe can be found in my Recipe Dump post.
-Quitting my day job and become a sushi chef. Finally got to mark "learn how to make sushi" off my cooking bucket list.
-Hello Fresh arrived on our doorstep again this week. The cumin spiced chicken with zucchini pearl couscous was my favorite from the box!
-Scurried through the week to speed down to Dallas for OU/Texas weekend. First stop Nordstrom for lunch and new shoes.
-Get us all back together and it's guaranteed good time. 
-Highlight of the weekend. Hi Molls!!! We may be rivals, but blogger besties comes first.
-Fletcher's we meet again. #teammustard
-Recovered from the Sooners loss and a long day at the fair with copious amounts of Torchy's Tacos queso.
-Couldn't make a trip to Texas without a stop to Trader Joe's. Pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds, pumpkin cornbread mix, pumpkin soup and pumpkin body butter filled my basket.
-Last stop before Oklahoma was for an Eatzi's breakfast.
-Another batch of carrot ginger dressing whipped up for a friend who is obsessed as I am. 
-Finished off a great weekend with a Mexican style quinoa homemade from our last Hello Fresh package.
