I came into my room to finish packing my suitcase for our trip tomorrow morning and found this:
I think Jackson wants to be a little stow-away in my bag!
Sadly, where we are headed, he can’t join us.
We will miss little Jackson, but while we are gone, I know he will have lots of fun with his grandparents in New Jersey!
I will attempt to post once we get to our final destination – I can’t wait to share our trip with you!
Catch ya on the flip side!
Another day, another amazing meal.
I made my first gumbo, using a rotisserie chicken for the first time and it turned out amazing.
The stars of this gumbo included a rotisserie chicken, spicy smoked sausage and okra which created a tasty cajun stew.
I found this amazing recipe by Martha Stewart from reading Iowa Girl Eats Friday Favorites.
30 minutes on the stove and dinner is served!
With a side of cornbread, the meal is complete.
The chicken, sausage, okra and all the spices came together beautifully.The meal was a hit, I will definitely be enjoying this again soon!
Have you ever made gumbo? Please share your recipe!
This weekend Charles & I hit up a new (to us) restaurant in Philadelphia.
Sampan is located on one of my favorite streets (to dine on) in Center City - 13th Street!
It boasts modern Asian Street flavors with a flare!
I started the evening off with a Honey Whiskey Jar.
Perfect start to a lovely evening outside enjoying the weather.
Charles and I started off the meal with the Korean BBQ Beef Satay.
It was seasoned with Kim Chee & ginger – tasted incredible.
Next up was the main course – We split the Crispy Szechuan Chicken.
It was a massive portion, we were so happy we shared, it was also out of this world.
Because I have a major love affair with Brussels sprouts, I had to test out the ones on the menu.
Our side of sprouts were seasoned with fish sauce, puffed rice & chili. They were awesome!
I ended my meal just as I began, with a cocktail!
This time I enjoyed the Sampantini – Hendrick’s Gin, Aloe Vera & Cucumber.
It was the perfect ending to an amazing dinner. Can’t wait to come back!
