Week in Review - Golf & The Pioneer Woman



I got both of these items for my birthday a couple weeks ago - and let me just say that I love The Pioneer Woman even more now :) Anyone tried a recipe in her new cookbook yet?


I'm a complete novice when it comes to sewing, but I've been trying to practice. Last weekend I sewed a scarf while drinking iced coffee - a little ironic maybe?



My childhood friend is getting married this weekend and I have been helping her with some of the decor. While working on this wall of ribbon I learned that using a staple gun can be a real one-arm-workout. 



Eric has been trying to convince me that he needed new golf clubs for a while. Finally, after selling his old set and finding a great deal on used clubs, I agreed. He was a fat kid in a candy shop opening them. 


New clubs meant a date night at the golfing range.

    1. Oh no! That is so awesome but also such a bummer - I'm sure that will be Eric's new Monday night hangout :)

  2. Absolutely love the Pioneer Woman! A friend and I made the cinnamon rolls from her first cook book last fall -- it was a HUGE undertaking but so much fun. Did you hear that her cooking show will be back on next Saturday?

    1. Oh I'm so glad to hear that! She is so great! Eric and I have been making her cinnamon rolls for the past couple of Christmas and giving them to people - they are amazing! You're totally right - it takes forever - that's why we just make them once a year :)

  7. I got Pioneer Woman's cookbook for my birthday too!! I've tried: fig-prosciutto pizza (SUPER yummy!!), Pesto cream pasta, Tomato creamy pasta, Chipotle steak salad (the dressing she makes is HOT. Not even Brad was able to eat it...), Tres Leches cake, caprese salad (her dressing is AWESOME), Tequila lime chicken, and I think that's all. We have people in our house for meals every week ao her recipes are great for big parties!! Have you cooked any of her new recipes yet? :)

    1. I was really wanting to make that Chipotle steak salad, but now I'm worried! Maybe I'll try it and cut back on the peppers?! I'll definitely have to try the fig-prosciutto pizza - it sounds so fancy, so I wasn't sure about it! So far I've only made the tomato creamy pasta but I can't wait to try more!

    2. The salad ends up being delicious!!! But yeah, don't do what she says... which is to pour the can of chipotle peppers + mayo on the food processor... I'd say just grab a few peppers and put some mayo+cream with it... the more milk the less spicy! haha!
      The pizza is DELICIOUS and it's super easy to make!! The saltiness of the prosciutto works really well with the sweetness of the jam. For reals!

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
