    1. I LOVE homemade ice cream!!! I get rocketed back to childhood just thinking about it. My parents made THE most amazing peaches and cream ice cream!
      I hope your weekend is fantastic!

  2. Happy Memorial Day honey! I think I’m going to have to try that rosemary chicken though I doubt I do it was well as you…

    1. Consider it done.
      We put the kids in the bunks and you’re getting her full size wrought iron bed.
      Best AC in the house, too.
      I’ll even fry up bacon and sausage and gravy for you, I love you that much.

  3. Well, I feel like the weekend is almost here…I don’t why! I started off tonight with two oven stuffer chickens in a raspberry glaze…that we’ll have for sandwiches with chutney this weekend. Steak on the grill tomorrow. Easy. So we can sit out on the deck and enjoy. One thing I am excited about is the super-sized “campfire” marshmallows I bought for smores around the campfire. My kids are pretty happy ’bout that! Those marshmallows are huge!! Have a great weekend! ~Chris Ann

  5. Lookin good! And you aren’t so bad yourself.

    Great idea (and I totally copied you, but at least I own my unoriginality, right?)

    I planted rosemary not too long ago, in an ignored area near our mailbox and my husband weed whacked it. Grr.
    It’s still alive, but it will be a LONG time before I can just go out and snag some whenever I want. -This is in ref to your gorgeous lemon rosemary chicken breasts.-

    Have a lovely weekend.

  6. We’re going out of town and we’re going to be super busy the whole time! We’re also staying in a hotel which has very limited “resources”. Haha. Unfortunately we will be eating out for most of our meals. Fortunately, there are some GREAT restaurants in the area!

    And, can I just say that my family members make fun of me because I eat MIGAS constantly now! Ever since I read your post I thought, “Hey! That’s easy! Quick! Calories aren’t too bad (if you’re careful!)! So, I eat them A LOT! 🙂

  7. Yum. We are making your donut holes sometime this weekend, along with my husband’s award winning pulled pork and BBQd ribs, The Pioneer Woman’s Chocolate Sheet Cake, and the Ahhhmazing Margaritas from Mexico. It is going to be a very good weekend.

  9. Hello my dear! I LOOOOVVVE rhe look of those short ribs- mmmm, they melt my mouth. SO far we’ve had a sleepover with umpteen million teenaged boys, and perhaps we shall go swimming. That’s about it! All best to you on your holiday weekend! xoxo, Lindsay
