It’s been quite some time since I’ve done a Five on Friday, so I figured I should join in on the fun this week... linking up with April to celebrate!
ONE | Vinho Verde
When John and I were in New Mexico recently, our friends introduced us to Vinho Verde wine, and I have since become a little bit obsessed. I’m not a white wine kind of person, but this wine is fabulous! And the best part? It’s cheap! At only $7/bottle, it’s a perfect pool wine to drink in the Arizona heat (something just doesn’t fit drinking red wine when it’s hot out!).
TWO | Southwest Quesadillas
John and I were doing so great with meal planning the past few months, but have recently fallen off the bandwagon! I swear, all it takes is one Sunday that we don’t grocery shop, and we fall out of the rhythm for the next few weeks. I was rummaging through my refrigerator and was trying to find something to make, and we had all the ingredients for Southwest quesadillas... and they were fabulous – a perfect twist on a simple meal!
Simply layer pulled pork, shredded cheese, corn, black beans, avocado, and cilantro in a tortilla and heat in a frying pan until hot and the cheese is melted. Serve with ranch dressing or salsa, and you’ve got yourself a simple and tasty meal!
THREE | Baking with Protein Powder
Has anyone baked with protein powder? My coworker has this cookbook, and some of the recipes look so tasty! Think banana bread, but with a ton of protein (from using banana flavored protein). I’m kind of intrigued!
FOUR | Europe
John and I leave for Europe on Wednesday, and to say we are excited would be a huge understatement. We will start in London, head to Paris, and finish in Rome. We have tours booked, restaurants picked out, and are looking forward to exploring the cities! If you have any last minute recommendations, please let me know!
FIVE | Birkenstock Gizeh
I just bought a pair of Birkenstock Gizeh, and I'm basically super excited about them. I pretty much live in flip flops during the summer, and I wear through them so quickly. This will be a perfect compromise between a good looking flip flop while still being durable and comfortable!
