Weekend Love

I loved this past weekend. Dashing had 2 1/2 days off IN A ROW. I must tell you that this hardly ever happens. I loved every minute of it. So with all of these hours (as in a whole 60 of them!!!), what did we do?

I made Andi's (from Can You Stay for Dinner) Chicken Tikka Masala. 

It was SOOOO delicious. Dashing ate it (which is success step 1)! THEN to really put the cherry on top. He ate the leftovers the next day. Let me tell you....Dashing NEVER eats leftovers. This should scream out to you TRY THIS RECIPE! I made Saffron Rice and steamed cauliflower to accompany this yummy dish. We ate it all before photos...so I used Andie's photo. Her photo is prettier anyways!

I also made homemade Pesto with basil given to me from a co-workers garden. To 3 cups basil, just add 1/2 c. toasted pine nuts, 1/8 c. grape seed oil (or to taste), a little salt to a food processor. You'll be in heaven! We used it as dip and then I made pesto grilled chicken. I marinated the chicken in the pesto in a ziplock bag in the fridge for a few hours, then Dashing grilled away. So yummy.

We also had a fantastic date night out to this place called Zin Burger in Tucson. Seriously Fabulous burgers, sweet potato fries, and cookies and cream shakes. Dashing saw one of his Emergency Department attendings (ie: physicians done with training) there. She has two beautiful young boys. Dashing introduced himself to the one boy and instead of saying hi or on the flip side, being bashful, he said "I like tacos." HAHAHA. It reminded me of this classic YouTube video.

We then traveled the 2 hours north to Phoenix, Arizona for our cousin's wedding at the "majestic" Royal Palms - that's quoting their website. It's a beautiful boutique hotel that hosts Presidents and celebrities regularly. Needless to say it was beautiful. It's always fun to go to a wedding to remind you and your husband of the vows you took too. Such a wonderful moment to celebrate love and tradition. Swoon....

I was concerned with my hair.....Here's how my hair turned out. I think it was alright. I was emotionally ok with it. I thought my dress and Dashing's tux rocked though!

Congratulations and best wishes to the couple!
