Friday Food and Favorites - Plus We Have a Winner!

Friday, April 27, 2012

I was thinking about what food I should post today and two thoughts popped into my head. The first one was, hey, it's Friday, let's talk about how I make the same chicken recipe every week for Shabbos and why not try a new one...when I realized that I already covered that exact topic in a previous post.

The second thought I had was that whichever recipe I use, I want to link back to my friend the fabulous chef, Sarah from Kosher Street. It's the least I could do considering that before my kidney surgery she showed up at my house with several huge shopping bags filled with food, all prepackaged and ready to go in the freezer, so my family would be well fed for the weeks following my surgery.

So much food she gave me, that yesterday after running around all day taking care of things for the event I'm currently working on (see below), and having nothing to prepare for supper, I was able to open my freezer and find delicious chicken all ready to be reheated. And later, as I dug into the yummy chicken, I realized I was eating the very Moroccan Tomato Jam Chicken that I had linked to in that previous post! Thanks Sarah!

So instead, I'm featuring a different type of chicken recipe from Kosher Street that is extremely versatile in that it can be made fresh on Friday as an appetizer for Shabbos lunch or with your leftover chicken for a healthy Sunday dinner.

Now for my favorites, I'd like to reference some cool things from this past week. This past Monday I finally got a little time to get to the mall by myself. I hadn't been to the mall since before my surgery, so I was excited to swipe that credit card! Here are a couple of my favorite things I bought:

I saw these stunners in the Nordstrom catalog and loved them right away. Aren't they the perfect summer espadrille? I love the multi media mix of textures!

I'm always searching for the best mascara. Honestly, I don't really see much of a difference between different brands. But buying this Mac mascara was so fun because of its cool packaging and dual wand and my lashes actually seemed to grow a bit when I applied both coats!

I fell in love with the summery colors of these jean skirts and thought what a great way to update my look for a casual day and infuse my wardrobe with some bright color. I was so excited about wearing this skirt that I wore it the next day for a photo shoot (see below).

On Tuesday I had so much fun doing a photo shoot for MUPS, the shoes with interchangeable ornaments...which happen to be my next favorite for the week. Here's me in my new skirt and my MUPS!

If you haven't seen this post on MUPS yet, and you want to win two pairs of your own MUPS for Mother's Day, check out the post HERE!

And finally, on Thursday, I spent most of the day working on tying up lots of loose ends for the upcoming Hatzolah Ladies Event Auction that I've been working on. We have some amazing prizes you can win and the best part is YOU CAN BUY YOUR AUCTION TICKETS FOR THIS EVENT RIGHT HERE THROUGH MY BLOG!

    Hope you're healing up speedily after the surgery!

  17. how gorgeous do you look in that MUPS collaboration...stunning!!! and what a cute idea...I typically just wear TOMS casually but a cute pair of mups ballet flats could be in the cards.
