Bites of My Life

One week down with the new site design up! You guys probably aren't as obsessed with the new site as I am because it's a little weird to be obsessed with a website, but I still hope you love it. Thank you thank you thank you for all the sweet notes and compliments about the new site. This was a long time coming, so to finally see it in action is extremely exciting. Besides getting a fresh new look, this was just the motivation I needed for all things blog related. 

After the excitement from the new blog launch, my week went running downhill pretty fast. Nothing extravagant just several little things that built up to have a few crappy days in a row. Brushed it off toward the end of the week. Made a little extra cash turning my trash into others treasures, spent Friday night on the couch with Scandal on the DVR and an Irish coffee in hand, had the most fun with a packed house and full tummy on Saturday, and finished the week with a Thunder game!

-Monday morning the new Take A Bite went live and it was a hands in the air all day kind of day.
-First bite of the site was this recipe for Upside Down Pumpkin Crumb Cake
-Mushroom spaghetti squash with parmesan and herbs. On repeat for dinner twice last week and can't wait to make it again. Seriously so good and satisfying. Adapted from this recipe.
-With all the new happenings with Take A Bite, I threw it back to a super old recipe. Can't wait for leftover Thanksgiving turkey to make this again. 
-Did you catch my review of The Homemade Kitchen last week, as well as the recipe for some killer jambalaya?
-My favorite kind of lunch is easily a version of sweet and salty toast. This week was avocado toast with a poached egg and pumpkin butter toast with granola sprinkled on top. 
-Finally made it into Provision Kitchen. Stopped in for their Thanksgiving tasting and got to catch up with my favorite employee/best friend.
-After showing up Sunday to see they were closed, Dad and I redeemed ourselves with lunch Friday from the new sandwich shop in town!
-Hoestesses with the mostesses.
-Two words, Baked Havarti. My favorite dish out of all the cheese options to choose from.
-A full spread to celebrate a big birthday and an OU win! 
-It's not a true birthday celebration without a little cake. Skillet baked chocolate cobbler served with lots of ice cream. Used this recipe but baked it in a skillet instead!
