Get out of that same ol’ recipe rut and try one of these delicious and easy recipes this week! This week I highly recommend making the Chunky Shrimp Burgers with Avocado Aioli sauce and Ultimate Cheesy Roasted Veggie Calzone!
Hey hey hey TKW Family! Happy Sunday! How are you peeps today? I’m one whooped puppy. Even though we took the work off from all of our jobs to celebrate Mr. Fantabulous’ birthday it still wasn’t restful. We got up early on Saturday morning, well okay I did, I let him sleep in. Since we were going with a bunch of friends to support a gunbash I decided to whip up a batch of my salted caramel chocolate chunk cookies (see the instagram pic below). Now as you know where we live, nothing is close so we drove the 60+ miles to the bash. The gun bash was fun and this time the food was pretty good but the best was seeing our friends and seeing Mr. Fantabulous relax. After that we met up with some other friends for dinner at this new brewery in Castle Shannon (Mindful Brewing for you Pittsburgh peeps).
It’s funny because Pittsburgh is truly a small town as we knew the manager of this place as he was one of our favorite managers at a different brewery. The food was pretty good. I asked Matt, the manager, what he recommended. He advised Mr. Fantabulous on some beer and for me, since he knows I’m a food snob he recommended the fried chicken and waffles. Now even though I’m not a huge waffles fan I took his advice.
Now this chicken, omg people… it was seriously good! They pressure fry their chicken. The skin was crispy and the meat was ridiculously moist. Like we’re talking so good that I want to buy a pressure fryer! But right now that’s not practical for me. I’d definitely go back to see Matt and get the chicken but I’d go earlier in the day as our wait was 2 hours annnnnnnnnd it was insanely loud. We’re talking so loud that you couldn’t hear the person sitting next to you. I actually left there with a headache (and still have one today).
Last week I had lots of stuff I posted on Instagram. Some posts even had recipes in them. If you don’t follow me on there you’re missing out! Oh also, I posted a video of the finished floor in the media and billiard room.
Updates of the finished hickory flooring in the media and billiard rooms. We still have way more flooring to do still downstairs (about the same size of these two rooms) but it’s progress. . 👍 . #construction #floor #flooring #hardwood #diy #remodel #renovation #canteaittosell #buymyhouse #makeanoffer #pittsburgh

Mmmm dem taters are good eats! Today I made 2-types of Roasted Potato Wedges. This one is Smoked Paprika, Garlic, Onion and chives. . 🥔 . Simple recipe: 1. Cut the 2 large potatoes in wedges and soak in a ice bath for 30 minutes. 2. Remove from the water and towel dry completely. 3.
