Friday Five

HAPPY HALLOWEEN (WEEKEND)! I can’t wait to dress up (check it out on my insta tomorrow!) and indulge in candy and cocktails this weekend. Last weekend, I carved the most amazing sugar skull pumpkin (below). It took for absolute ever but I was so proud. It was on display all last week, but with all the wonky weather we’ve been having, it died before Halloween *womp womp* Oh well. Let’s get this Friday Five going! Friday Five | @innatsshoes

1.The ladies of the Lazy Travelers drank all the wine while visiting Portugal, here’s proof. Okay, at least they tried.

2. Have you heard of these candles that (supposedly) smell like home? This Northern California candle has my name all over it — even though I’m not homesick.

3. I cannot get enough scallops. However, cooking them myself is a bit intimidating (and I’ve never tried!). This recipe from Tasting Table makes the process of cooking the scallops sound easy and delicious — a win-win!

4. I just discovered a whole slew of Napa Valley happy hour listings and I cannot wait to try all of these out! Thanks, Two Guys from Napa.

5. Umm.. Bailey’s chocolate mousse?! This will definitely be on my holiday menu! So easy!

Spicy Chicken Teriyaki Fried Rice Bowls

The weather in Napa has been quite erratic lately, but I’m not complaining. No, I rather like this slightly rainy, slightly overcast weather we’re currently experiencing. However, it makes me far less productive than normal, as I want to be dressed in my comfy clothes, curled up under a warm throw while sipping tea and reading for leisure. Or in the kitchen cooking up something comforting and tasty.Like my new favorite chicken teriyaki fried rice bowls.  Read the rest of this entry

I’m so thrilled it’s Friday! I have big plans to do absolutely nothing all weekend and I could not be more stoked. So until the weekend officially starts, I’m going to pretend I’m back in Mendocino at the beach and leave you all with some of my favorite links I found over the week. Deal?
