Friday, Friday, Friday!!! Poor ol’ Thursday, I’ve been calling it pre-Friday for a while now. I hope I haven’t hurt it’s feelings too badly!

To help celebrate my love of Friday and the upcoming weekend (my real favorite!), I thought it would be fun to share one of my other absolute favorite things in all the land – my iPad.

Mine stays with my in my purse, on my nightstand and basically just goes with me everywhere around the house!

I use my Kindle app for reading books, my Next Issue app for reading my favorite magazines, and don’t get me started on Pinterest, Facebook, and all of my other little must-have apps that I keep on mine. But seriously, what I use it the most for is in the kitchen while I’m cooking or testing recipes. Totally indispensable!

    Dinner: baby back ribs, corn on the cob, and loaded potato wedges
    Dessert: fresh strawberry shortcake

  10. Where do I start!!!!

    For an appetizer I would love your pizza stuffed mushroom recipie. That recipie spoke volumes to me because I eat so much pizza and love it to death lol and I’m not saying it just to get on your good side

  11. MMMMM, what a lovely idea! I think I’d want guacamole and white cheese dip with Herdez brand corn chips, followed by a Caesar salad. For the main course, I’d love a grilled steak, accompanied by a loaded baked potato and a broccoli and yellow squash side dish. For dessert, I would be thrilled to see a slice of German chocolate or Hummingbird cake with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream! Now, excuse me while I go exercise off those imaginary calories! God bless.

  12. Where do I start!!!!

  13. No one has ever offered me this. Wow. Start out with a shrimp coctail.Then a light crisp salad with a oil and champagne vinegar. Staying with the seafood theme, salmon cooked in parchment with Julianne squash and carrots and a champagne sauce. Dessert, yes a bowl of coffee ice cream with cinnamon liquor on top. check please

  14. Starter would be tortilla chips with salsa and a good goat cheese queso.

    The meal would be chicken enchiladas with home made hatch chile sauce, Spanish rice, and refried or black beans.

    For dessert after all that would be a simple vanilla ice cream, perhaps with some fresh strawberries or pineapple.

  15. Having someone cook for me would be awesome…as long as they did the dishes too, lol. I would love Bridgette and inch bread, followed by a delicious salad. For dinner I would want veggie lasagna with lots of cheese. For dessert anything chocolate, but I love chocolate silk pie 🙂

  16. Friday night fabulous dinner would be Caesar Salad with focaccia bread Then fried south African lobster tail with sautéed asparagus and roasted potatoes .to end the meal I would love fresh regular coffee with a large creme brûlée . Then I would have o put on my sweatpants and be one with the sofa .

  17. If someone offered to cook supper for me on a Friday night the meal would consist of corn & crab bisque, Beef Wellington, and Creme Brulee.

  18. Crab cakes or crab stuffed mushrooms
    Bison T-bone steak, asparagus and a twice baked potato with sour cream
    A glass of good Cabernet Shiraz
    Saskatoon berry pie a la mode

  19. My husband is an amazing cook. I’d have him start us off with a gin martini. Next up, Caesar salad with anchovies. Main course, potato and cheese crepes with chile De arbol sauce. Dessert would be my homemade butter pecan ice cream. Ok, now I’m hungry 🙂

  20. My full menu would be cheese sticks with marinara to start. Chicken Alfredo with garlic bread smothered in cheese!! Dessert would be caramel cheesecake!! Yummy now I’m hungry!!!!

  21. I would want Spinach Artichoke Dip with tortilla chips for my appetizer. For my entree, I want shrimp and scallops with rice pilaf. And for dessert, cheesecake with cherries on top!

  22. It would have to start with really good French bread with real butter. Follow it up with a dozen oysters Rockefeller and then a Caesar salad with anchovy. Then I’d need a dry aged bone in marbled ribeye seared to a perfect medium-rare plus. Topped with Gorgonzola and Rosemary butter. My husband would need an 8 oz. filet prepared the same way. We would share chili roasted red-skinned potatoes, grilled asparagus, and creamed spinach. We would finish with a creme brûlée vanilla bean cheesecake served with a strawberry and Chambord compote. There will be no skimping on the Prosecco either.

  23. So many options, but it would have to be… Chips with guacamole (the recipe I have in mind is really good), steak and brownies with peppermint ice cream! Thank you for the giveaway.

  24. I know I missed the giveaway by 1 hours and 34 minutes (AH!!! I know right?!) but I’m going to answer anyway 🙂 It would be really simple dinner because that’s how I like em. Salad with carrots and onions and creamy italian dressing, another side with grilled corn. Then the main dish… wait for it… chili spaghetti lol I never have it!! I’m probably putting this down because its been 2 months since I had it and it was all I could think about today. For dessert: cookies and cream chocolate cake. 🙂
