Cinco de Mayo Bachelorette Party – Part 2

daisi - January 23, 2013

If you missed Part 1 of the bachelorette party, you can review it here. Friday – Quatro de Mayo – we decided to walk to a brunch place that came highly recommended, Moonshine Patio Bar & Grill. We knew the other girls would be arriving that afternoon, so a low-key morning was perfect. The food was incredible, I don’t recall what we all had, but …

2012.10.13 OU Texas - 2

menu recap [weeks 38 & 39]

daisi - October 11, 2012

[week 38] The only thing I “cooked” week 38 was at my mom’s on Friday night. We got together for her birthday and grilled burgers, bacon-wrapped jalapenos, and ribs. Fun with family and great food… can’t beat it. [Saturday] OU v. Kansas State – the game was awful, but tailgating and hanging out with friends is always fun. [week 39] [Monday] I finally made a meal …

surprise birthday trip

daisi - August 15, 2012

Sam’s birthday was Monday and I’ve been trying to figure out what to get him for the past few months. First, I thought I’d get him the new golf bag he’s been eyeying. But then, he bought it. Okay, fine. Next up, new golf shoes. But then, he bought them. Okay, fine. How about an iPad? That seems like a really nice gift. But then, …

[Week 27]  Also known as my birthday week o’ celebration was pretty uneventful on the cooking front, as in there was NO cooking at all. Lots of eating though… a happy hour at Doc’s on Friday. They have the BEST cocktails and appetizers. I recommend the andouille sausage spinach dip, and of course oysters on the half shell. [clockwise: gin & jam, linds-me-tree, drinks on fire, …

cookbook club

Last week was a pretty busy week for us so there wasn’t much cooking going on. Just some old stand-bys and nothing so delicious I felt I needed to write about. We did have dinner at McGill’s on Friday and I had the pasta lobster for the first time and it was lifechanging. I highly recommend it! And we had dinner club on Saturday and …

On Monday this week, I joined my friends Megan  & Shonda for a wine dinner at Biga Italian Restaurant. It was a 4-course meal with wine pairings from the Benessere Vineyards for each. Unfortunately, the rep from the winery was delayed due to our amazing storms we’ve had all week, but he finally made it at the end.  We didn’t get to hear about each wine with …

I’m only a month behind in posting these pics! Not bad, not bad. In February, we made a little 4-day trip to Vail, Colorado. This was BEFORE I knew the Pioneer Woman would be there this past week… What timing! Anyway, we headed out late Wednesday night so we could get a full day of skiing in on Thursday. Our party planners, Donny & Trier, …

OKC thunder

So I’m falling behind in 2012 – ugh! Not last week, but the one before that, Sam and I went to OKC/Norman for the weekend. I finally got to see the Thunder play after my one year hiatus, never again. We played the Rockets and it was great because we DOMINATED the game (109-94 final score). It’s so fun watching our team grow. Sam and …
