Houston Super Bowl; Eats and Entertainment

Houston Super Bowl; Eats and Entertainment

I cook at home for my family almost everyday but when we go out to eat there’s a handful of restaurant that always make the list.

Churrascos among my top choices and yes it is family friendly. We have been on several occasion, mostly for lunch. I recommend this place because although of its upscale atmosphere, the prices are affordable. The food is delicious and the drinks are cheap. Speaking of drinks, they have happy hour everyday, from 4PM to 7PM. There are several locations in Houston but the closest to all the Super Bowl activities is Churrascos River Oaks; Churrascos Memorial and Churrascos Westheimer are not too far.

Foyer Reveal

Foyer Reveal

The entryway of a home is one of the most important places, as it sets the tone for what your guest can expect the rest of your home to look and feel like. I dreamt of decorating this space from the time we signed the contract to have our home built.

Entryway decor

When we finally moved in, my priorities had shifted and at some point decorating this area fell to the bottom of our to-do list. The foyer, looked so uninviting; nothing like what I had visualized.

In an effort to tackle this area of our home, I began by adding a bench. I opted for a bench over a console table because I personally feel that tables become a landing places; filled with phones, keys, toys, etc. I wanted to avoid this and the bench has actually worked perfectly. It is mostly decorative because we don’t use it much, but this means the area stays clean.

Beef Sliders Recipe

Beef Sliders Recipe

The first time I made sliders was over a year ago. In fact, it was for the baby’s first birthday party (funny thing that we call her a baby and she’s almost two years old). Guests gave me good feedback, when I made these then. And my family loves them so much that I’ve continued to make them.

It’s an easy meal, only involving a handful of ingredients and it’s done – from start to finish – in abut 30 minutes. I’m a true fan of quick meals. I have also made this recipe with ground turkey. And if tweaked a bit, you could possibly make it with pulled pork and other meats. Though, I have not personally ventured from ground meats yet.

Intentional Prayer

This morning, I shared a simple but powerful image on Instagram, with the word Pray on it. It was something I felt in my heart but also seemed appropriate for a day like today, Sunday.

Coincidently, today’s message included these same words. Our priest advised that we set aside 15 minutes each day to dedicate to prayer. He went on to describe what the typical day for most working parents looks like and how busy our lives are. And realized that 15 minutes of prayer is not something that most of us will actually take the time to do.

Panama: Part III – Bocas del Toro

Panama: Part III – Bocas del Toro

If you have been following along my Panama adventure, thanks for coming back to read the last post in the series! If you’re just joining me, thanks for visiting, you can catch up here.

On the previous post, I shared details about a five-point tour that we did upon arriving in Bocas del Toro. That tour was great for two reasons. One, it was an all day event and two, we got to see a lot more than we would have on our own.

Books Town, Bocas del Toro

Chicken Stuffed French Bread

Last week I made a chicken stuffed  French bread, a new family favorite. I stumbled across this recipe a few months ago, and have made it a few times since. The recipe calls for some simple ingredients; chicken, bacon, cheese, mayo, sour cream… Most of these ingredients you probably already own, no need for a grocery trip.

First, I cooked a chicken breast. Yes one breast was enough because I used one small loaf. I’m also only feeding two adults and two kids who are very lightweight eaters. This step took me about 25 minutes but you can cut the prep and cook time if you buy chicken that is already shredded (I have purchased this at Kroger before). Or use left over shredded chicken.
