I love Friday afternoons.
After a busy week of video conferences, phone calls, business development meetings, (all while juggling a 3 year old) Fridays are my beacon of light.
My hottie hubby and I have a standing rule that no work-related appointments happen over the weekend. So, Friday nights mean a forced retreat from the social media world. It’s not always easy but I’ve learned to appreciate him pulling me away from the world and back into our cozy space.
I also have a little more time to put into Friday night meals so I had grand plans to make the Teriyaki Chicken Skewers from My Natural Family last night.
I just knew that we had wooden skewers at home.
Yea… we didn’t. Time for a little improv!
I loved the idea of making my own teriyaki sauce so I still followed the recipe closely to make the marinade and it was delicious.
The teriyaki chicken was made more perfect on a salad made with homegrown romaine lettuce, bacon, cranberries and avocado. A side of freshly cut pineapple brought it over the top.
Don’t be afraid to put your own little spin on the recipes you find on Pinterest :)
You just might surprise yourself.
What is everyone making this weekend?
