Friday Faves

3 mins read

Hello hello and happy Friday!

With nearly a foot of snow falling outside, I was snug as a bug in our cabin kitchen while raiding the freezer, fridge, and pantry for dinner inspiration. Luckily, my husband had gone to the grocery store before I arrived and stocked up on the essentials. After a quick perusal, I realized I had all I needed to make one of my favorite weeknight meals, this Thai coconut chicken and rice dinner. So good and so comforting and a dinner I’ll be making regularly in what I’m hoping will be a very wintery winter to come.
