Friday Eve

Hey Blogland, it’s Friday Eve. I’ve always been one to start celebrating the weekend on Thursdays.  LOL  Did everyone survive St. Patrick’s Day?  Tell me about what you did to celebrate.  Drink green beer or eat corned beef and cabbage?  Let me know. 

As for me, I had a playgroup at my house in the morning.  I made some Trader Joe’s brownies (box mix) and Irished them up with some green frosting.  Just a cup of powdered sugar and a few drops of almond milk, and green food coloring.   DSC02009 DSC02010 - Copy

These were super moist, and for the non bakers like myself, as easy as 1-2-3. 

Other than playgroup, we didn’t do any St Patty’s Day partying.  The weather is finally gorgy outside and we took advantage of it with a little hike and a swim.  ‘Twas glorious with a capital G!!

So, by the time all that madness was over we went with a simple grilled dinner that was not at all Irish, but was 100% veggie and shrimp-alicious! 


No dinner is complete without the obligatory glass of vino. 


Do you get excited for the weekend on Thursdays?   Do you like having plans for the weekend, or prefer no plans and just rollin’ with whatever happens?


  1. I LOVE celebrating the weekends on Thursday!!

    Sometimes I like to have plans on the weekend... but I also like just relaxing and doing whatever :)

  2. those brownies look great! I actually didn't do anything for st. patty's day but some studying and catching up. I have to say that I haven't been drinking, even wine! But for now it works best for me :) awwwwh, she is getting so big! how precious :) I am definitely one to plan, but try to go with the flow if something comes up :) have a great weekend!

  3. I always start celebrating on Thursdays! :)
    I didn't do anything too crazy for St. Patrick's Day, but my BF is Irish (complete with red hair and freckles) so we went and had a few beers, listened to an Irish band and had ruebens!

  4. OMG those brownies look awesome! They look very creme de menthe and amazing!

    so glad to hear you're still rocking out the dark choc homemade pure bars and enjoying them. '

    I hope you guys have a great weekend! we have no plans other than to try and keep it low key. life has been crazy w/ the house. suffice to say it's been a full time job coordinating things lately on all that :)
