Foodie Friday

Well I don't know about you, but warm weather just makes me want to tan and be athletic......and eat.

If you follow me on Instagram (which you should!!), you might have seen several of these photos already....sorry. But seriously, I think I've been having some pretty good food lately so my goal today is to make you as hungry as possible. It is Friday, so calories don't count.

I considered this my pre-birthday dinner. "Where's the green??" you might ask...well, a boy cooked this meal.

My dear friend Marky Mark had his (extremely successful) senior percussion recital, and parents provided the most fabulous reception snacks!!

Yes, those are caprese kabobs.

This is a little summer pasta I threw together. Use any sort of noodles and add a little olive oil, garlic salt, and pepper- add fresh veggies! I used organic cherry tomatoes.

A great part about the end of the semester is that our wonderful professors start to throw parties!! My flute teacher, Dr. Arnone set up the perfect combo of Texas BBQ and Tex-Mex with these amazing smoked brisket tacos!! Isn't her homemade salsa beautiful??

Even Better- she sent me home with leftover brisket and corn tostadas!!!

Which provided the basis of my next day "Tex-Mex" pizza!

Refried black beans, baby spinach, smoked brisket, and my guacamole on a tostada? Every day please!!!! 

On to the next professor party- annual trumpet pizza making party at the Rudd's!!

I seriously need to get this oregano crust recipe from them because it was SO SO good!
I made this pizza with tomato sauce mixed with garlic Parmesan, a layer of baby spinach, mozzarella, sharp cheddar, and bacon!!

It might have been the best pizza I've ever had.

And finally, I leave you with an insta of how awesome my boyfriend is. Bacon and coffee special delivery to my apartment. True love!!

**Now- be on the lookout for a really exciting interview with a lifetime friend of mine who is starting her very own boutique!! We might even be having a giveaway?? Get excited ;)

Happy Friday, everyone!!
