when your dipping dots run dry

Oh hey, it's the last weekend of August 2015. How old does that make you feel? Because it makes my bones creak. Next week my family is taking over Houston and I. Can't. Wait. I'll be posting pictures of my brother's face when he tries Tex Mex for the first time because #babysfirsttexmex is a real thing. By baby, I mean grown man. 

For now, please drumroll for this week's Five Favorites on a Fine Friday, friends. 

Favorite Song
If you can listen to this song and not want to get up and dance then...who are you and why are you so lame? Get up, up, up and daaaaaaaance! 

Favorite Recipe
On our anniversary we BOTH got in the kitchen and made sweet potato gnocchi. Together. And I didn't screw it up. And it was fun. And hard. And I still think I prefer Freds cooking and me just sitting back and drinking wine, but compromise! And all that. 
Professional photography by yours truly. Look at that angle and set-up, dudes! 

Favorite Food For Which I Don't Need A Recipe
Brookside Dark Chocolate Pomegranate a.k.a. the POMS. I eat at least hundreds of these every night. That's probably an exaggeration. I eat more like ninety a night. That's also an exaggeration, but they are so dang good. Go! Go right now and get some! 

Favorite Expensive Thing I Want 
(as of 8 am this morning) (apparently I want a lot of expensive things) (it was hard narrowing it down to just one) 
You know how people say to wait to make a big purchase, and if you still are thinking about it and wanting it in a certain number of days/weeks then you should get it. That's crap. Get it when you want it, people! And while you are at it get me these pants, too. Plz and kthnx.

Favorite Oh No No
When my Dippin Dots cup was suddenly empty. This is my favorite because it means I GOT Dippin Dots. This is an Oh No No because there was no Bottomless Dippin Dots option. 

Happy Friday!
Linking up with Amanda and Karli!

"Favorite expensive thing that I want" cracked me up. And YUM. I love gnocchi. I've never made it but yours looks delicious. I haven't had Dippin' Dots in so long but now I NEED some!

Erin LFF said...

But why ISN'T there a botomless dip and dots option?! That's the real question!!! :) That gnocchi looks absolutely delicious- is this a Freddie whip-it-up creation or is there a legit recipe? Because I want it!

Erica Musyt said...

the gnocchi looks sooo yummy! after listening to that song i immediately downloaded it :) thank you for that!

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...

ooh that gnocchi looks so good! it has been years since i've had dippin dots, there should totally be a bottomless option.

hahaha best Friday favorites I've seen all day! "Favorite expensive item I want" I don't think I could narrow that down to 1 thing (or 100 things) SO JEALOUS of those dip n dots, those throw me back to Disneyland 95'. I miss those things. Happy Friday!

The Sweet Potato Gnocchi looks amazing! Congratulations on not messing it up! I'm a fairly good cook with basic stuff - but I struggle with making anything that's too complicated (I'm directions impaired. A.k.a. I always think I know better than the person who wrote the recipe and so I try to change things and then I end up messing up.) Have a great weekend.

Kylie @ Counselor with a Cape said...

Love this! Where did you find the recipe for the sweet potato gnocchi?! I wouldn't mind trying that it looks so good!!!

Laura Darling said...

Mmm the sweet potato gnocchi sounds amazing! And I love those pants!
