weekend roundup

every year when spring rolls around, things get busy.
i'm thankful for that because i like to be busy!

i will start with atlanta.
my husband had the fortune of living in this great city for years, so he knows all the whereabouts when we get to go. it is incredibly nice living only 2 hours away.... though it would be super to live even closer!

we met up with a great friend, brian mcsweeney, and spent the day at the sweetwater brewery! this turned out to be a great treat for us all! for only TEN bucks, you get a glass and a bunch of tickets. each ticket gets you a half-pour (more like a full glass!) and you drink in the sunshine. and it's BLUEBERRY beer! (my second fave to fat tire!)

it was a quick trip filled with great times, great food and great friends.

next up, i will state how extremely happy i am to be graced with this GLORIOUS weather we are having. it has truly been fantastic and we are SO ready for summer. our evenings our spent on our screened porch. doors have been open. dinner is cooked and eaten outside. it's just been great.

the photo below is grilled greek chicken. HERE is where you will find the recipe. we ended up using chicken tenderloins and marinating them for 24 hours, and serving them with veggie kabobs.
they. were. INCREDIBLE! 
and what goes better with greek food than hummus?!?!
david has been making homemade hummus and with this dish - it put it over the top!
here you will see another lovely dinner on another beautiful day. this one was tuna steak served with a vegetable medley. we marinate our tuna steaks in crushed pineapple, soy sauce and garlic, then grill it. it's so scrumptious that i could eat it every single day. try it and you'll see for yourself!
this past weekend was spent with my best friend in the world! crystal and her husband, justin, drove down so we could celebrate her 31'st birthday together! it was also st. patty's day, so we had a great night at the vello fellow, a restaurant i absolutely adore. it's filled with reclaimed wood - the walls, the family style dining room tables... it's amazing!
