Thirsty Thursdays

 Discovered these babies at Trader Joe’s and it has become a total favorite in the Blair home.  These have a lot more depths of flavor than the normal A&W root beer.   



Woke up super early this morning bc of a sick baby :(. On the plus side it means I was able to grab some food this morning before the rest of the neighborhood woke up.  

I’m obsessed with this kale, edamame salad (trader how’s) and a vanilla latte with half the powder (coffee bean).  🙂

Cheers to the freakin’ weekend!! 

Thirsty Thursdays: Fadeaway Chardonnay


“hay-colored, crisp, citrusy, lightly oaked Chardonnay…Fuji apple, pear, and melon notes, with hints of vanilla & a luxurious finish”

the chardonnay was yummy and i love the label!  the quote above is what Trader Joe’s says about it.   this wine is only $8.99  at TJ’s so grab a bottle today!

Thirsty Thursdays: Benefactor Cellars Chardonnay 2012 (South Eastern Australia)

Yummayyy~~ I really loved this wine.  It was only $4.99 and I was really impressed.  Sweet, incredibly smooth (rich body) with citrus notes.

REALLY liked it and would buy it again!


Southern BBQ: Ribs, Cole Slaw, Corn Bread and Mexican Corn

For fourth of july this last year, i wanted something a little different.  instead of the traditional hotdogs, hamburgers, etc i wanted ribs, corn bread and cole slaw.

Mexican Corn!  I’ve been CRAAAVING this for days so we made it for dinner (even though it didn’t go with ANYTHING else…)  we used frozen white corn instead of corn on the cob so it would be easier to eat.  turned out well and it was REALLY easy to make!

similar corn recipe here


pre-cooked and marinated ribs from trader joe’s.  SO DELICIOUS.  you just popo them in the oven for 20 minutes and BAM, dinner is ready.  I could eat this everyday they are so delicious!


our ugly spread.  it didn’t look hot, but it was DAMN gooooooooood.  we OBVIOUSLY cooked too much for four people.  but it was ok!  mike and i got to eat delicious leftovers for the rest of the weekend.  =D
