fun weekend ahead, the annual picnic at Joe’s family’s place on Hood Canal! And drum roll please…it is supposed to be sunny and over 80 degrees, woot-woot!!

So there is going to be a whole lot of me laying in the sun, some cooking, a little swimming, a bit of running (need to jump start those workouts) and of course, a few cocktails thrown in for good measure.
Of course, since we are heading to the cabin with the whole family — I am doing some prep work and cooking tonight. Planning to do a lot of grilling – hamburgers, hot dogs, brats and Joe’s favorite – chicken drumettes. I think I am going to make one of my favorite salads for the weekend – Chicken Hayashi, so good for big groups and super refreshing. Check out the recipe below. And I am going to throw in some of these S’more’s Cookie Bars that I stumbled across on Pinterest today.

Don’t they look A-MAZ-ING?!? I am going to make them tonight, take them to the cabin and then just heat them up when we are ready to eat them, so they are all warm and gooey inside!
- 2 chicken Breast halves, cooked and torn into pieces
- 2 T toasted sesame seeds
- 2 T toasted slivered almonds
- ½ medium head of cabbage, thinly sliced
- 2 green onions, chopped, tops & all
- ½ package Ramen noodles, uncooked, without seasoning packet, crunched up into tiny pieces
- 2 T sugar
- ½ C salad oil
- 1t salt
- ½ t pepper
- 3 T cider vinegar

So easy, but sooo very good. Also planning to bring some Prosecco or sparkling Pinot Grigio that I get from Trader Joe’s and some light fruit juice, for some sparkling drinks on the deck, while hanging with the family!
Get out there and enjoy your weekend! xoxo – n
