On Saturday and Sunday we took advantage of the beautiful Gulf coast weather and hung out on the beach. It was so weird on Saturday because the fog rolled in just on the beach.
As for Foodie Friday, I do have a couple things to share. I never got around to making those cookies! For our meatless dish we tried grilled portobello mushrooms. This was a stretch for both of us. Neither of us are big fans of mushrooms when they get slimy. Much to our surprise, this was delicious. You grill the mushrooms then add chopped tomato, fresh mozzarella, & basil with some olive oil. So good! I think next time though, we will use a whole slice of mozzarella and melt it on the mushroom while its grilling.
Creamy Orzo. We may be going meatless for a night, but certainly not carb-less. I have to have something to fill me up!
We also made Teriyaki Chicken Bacon Skewers this week. I found the recipe on Pinterest, although it's not really much of a recipe. Basically, you marinate the chicken in teriyaki (I made a basic marinade from All Recipes, good but makes a ton!!), wrap with bacon, then alternate on the skewer with pineapple and grill. Pretty simple and good, but it does take some time to wrap the chicken pieces.
That's about it for this week!
