We’re the Blackwells. But, if you’re reading this, you probably already know that. Garreth has been wanting me to start one of these for our little family since about the time we got married. This is an experiment. We’ll see if we’re interesting enough for you guys. :)
We started off this month with my sisters birthday. She’s turned 26 & we had a beautiful weekend in Hernando.
Strawberry cake + putting together a pergola + a BEAUTIFUL Sunday afternoon picnic with Nonnie and the family = best weekend ever.
If it looks good, you should have tasted it.
After the Monday holiday, it was a weird week. Plus, everybody got sick, including me and G. But the end of the week held a WONDERFUL surprise! My best friend Natalie, is getting married in October and she and her fiance Kennett are the two most creative people I know. So, Friday, we got this in the mail…
ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! i love it. so much!
The weekend has been good so far as well. Despite feeling bad yesterday, we had a lovely dinner the the Husni family and Bob Guccione Jr. at illustrious Taylor Grocery last night. Blackened catfish, huspuppies, fried okra, potato salad and chocolate pie for me & Nick’s platter for G. Very good.
A couple great things happened today! Garreth and I found some great gifts at Amelia’s 1 year anniversary sale! (Best shopping place on the square.) We finally took advantage of Kroger’s new “Pick 6” beer selection. (I’m looking forward to my Abita Satsuma and G his Killian’s) And tonight was Greek night at the Blackwell house!
Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce: (for 2)
2 pieced Chicken breasts marinated in juice from 1/2 lemon, Olive Oil, Garlic, Oregano & Thyme. Marinate for maximum flavor, but you can put it directly in the pan. Cook time is about 10 minutes.
For the tzatziki: 1/2 large cucumber processed with other 1/2 of lemon and 1 Greek yogurt cup & a little bit of onion powder. So quick, fresh and good.
Put these in some pita and you’re good to go! Such a good and quick meal. It tastes amazing.
Enjoy! And hopefully you’ll have a great Sunday!
