Now that I am done rambling on and on about Groungagement Day (see what I did there?) and the rest of our St. George Island weekend, I can get back to letting you know all of the super boring, everyday details of my life. So let’s rewind to Friday evening. Last week I was craving some pad thai and finally got my butt into the kitchen Friday to make it. This recipe was super easy and really delicious. Everyone should make this right now.
To go with it, we made roasted cauliflower with red chili, cilantro and lime.
Normally on Superbowl Sunday I am in the kitchen all day prepping dips and finger foods but since we were busy getting engaged, we got back into town with only enough time to swing by Publix for a few things before our friends came over. I knew I would have enough time to make one thing so I decided to go big. I figured that a proposal and the Superbowl was the perfect excuse to make the ridiculously indulgent Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pound Cake from my Friday Favorites.
This cake was good but veryyyy rich and everyone needed milk to get it down. I think I would have preferred it with a chocolate sauce instead of the peanut butter glaze. Or maybe just less peanut butter in the actual cake. I will probably not make it again but if you are a HUGE peanut butter fan, it’s worth trying.
Between being too excited to sleep Saturday night and staying up late for the game Sunday, I was a walking zombie on Monday. Matt and I had every intention to do our long run Monday after work but when Matt came home I was already in PJs on the couch on the phone with my sister about venue options. Finally her job as an event planner is beneficial to me I was able to enjoy a solid two days before I started to stress about the monster size of our families. Bye bye intimate affair, hello Barnum & Bailey.
Around 8pm we realized we had not eaten dinner and had no food in the house (except leftover PB cake). Matt asked if I would ride with him to pick up some food. I agreed as long as I could stay in the car. Apparently Matt didn’t pay attention to my outfit before we left, but he definitely noticed when we got back home:
Are you a Pad Thai fan?
