Five for Friday

Here are five things I am excited about on this glorious Friday morning.

1. Calla Lilies

Calla lilies were the main flower of our wedding, and as a wedding present my sister gave us a beautiful flower pot full of them.

Five Winters later, we still have the pot, but no lilies.  Earlier this year, my grandma gave me some calla lily bulbs to plant after she noticed my empty pot on my front porch.

Three of them bloomed over the week and I love stepping outside every morning.  They remind me of my wedding.  Of my sister.  Of my grandma.  So lovely.  

2. Flavored Coffee

Oh Dunkin Donughts, I love and loathe you at the same time.  Why does your flavored coffee have to be so good?  And so expensive?

I have tried triple berry and strawberry shortcake, which is my favorite.  Has anyone tried the coconut?

3. Chicken Roasting

Yesterday, for the first time in my life, I roasted an entire chicken.

When I opened the package immature Racheal showed up and I couldn't stop giggling.   I guess because I am so used to working with chicken breasts, seeing the whole thing-legs, backbone, tail- was so weird. 

I loosely followed this recipe and it turned out great.  

4. Homemade Yogurt Pops

A perfectly healthy dessert with perfectly healthy ingredients: frozen berries, Greek yogurt, bananas, and honey.

Thanks Amanda for giving me the idea!  Thanks Amazon Prime for the free 2 day shipping on the popsicle molds!

5. Tracking

This week I am mixing things up and switching back from SF to tracking.

I know, super exciting.  

And one last favorite - when Daddy gets home from work.

  1. I just combine olive oil + salt + pepper + rosemary and slather it all over the chicken... that is, when I do roast an entire chicken.. which is not very often. Haha
