Well hello y’all! I hope you had a nice weekend! We started off the weekend by going out for dinner and drinks with my parents. We had potentially the best meal I’ve ever eaten (and even better company) at Arcadia. We had awesome service, the drinks were spot on, and the food was to die for. My dirty martini even had a piece of pickled okra in it instead of olives! So freaking good. Go there for your next special occasion. I promise you’ll enjoy every last bite.
Then I had a Pampered Chef party and wanted to bring home the entire catalog. My consultant, Kelli, made us the best grilled pizza I’ve ever tasted. Please prepare yourselves for the many grilled pizza recipes to come! Later in the day, a few friends came over for a cookout and to hang out. All in all, it was a great weekend with great friends and family!
In other news, I whipped this stuff up the other day and now I want to put it…oh, ya know everything.
Obviously, it would be good for dipping chicken fingers or french fries in but I also think it would make an awesome marinade too. Or a yummy addition to a sandwich for a little something different. Maybe even a salad dressing? The possibilities are endless!
Tyler asked what these jars were for in the fridge. He then opened one and tasted it and his response was, “OMG that’s so good! What are we eating it on and when?!” OK, that’s a paraphrase but you get the idea. It’s that good.
Honey Dijon Mustard Dipping Sauce
Adapted from Budget Bites
- 1 cup light mayo (I used Hellmann’s)
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/3 cup course grain dijon mustard (I used Grey Poupon)
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- salt and pepper to taste
In a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and stir well to fully incorporate. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours but preferably overnight.
This stuff is just screaming for me to make some homemade chicken tenders to go with it, no? I think I can handle that!
Well, I’m off to clean out the DVR and hit the sack. I’m trying to run every day this week to prepare for my race on Saturday so I need my beauty rest! How did this thing creep up on me so quickly?!
