Outer Banks weekend :)

So, my parents, fiance, and I went to the Outer Banks for the weekend to do some wedding planning and got SO MUCH done! Such a relief to get stress off my shoulders. Here is what was done:

Toured the house where the ceremony & reception will be held
Booked the catering with Good Life Gourmet (LOVE!)
Booked flower/decor with Embelishers (LOVE!)
Found a cake maker and designed our cake with Great Cakes (LOVE LOVE!)
Bought dad's outfit for the ceremony

We still have to get a photographer & DJ, but got lots of good recommendations while down there, I just need a little break to take in everything. It's amazing how STRESSFUL wedding planning is! Especially when you are doing it from a distance...

Anywho! I can't get enough of cooking these days! I made apricot & lemon chicken with orzo tonight. I was absolutely starved, probably due to dad & I running 10 miles this morning :) Less than 2 weeks until the half marathon! YIKES!

Apricot & Lemon Chicken

2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 chicken breasts
cooking spray
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/3 cup apricot preserves

Mix curry, salt, and black pepper in small bowl. Rub all over chicken. Spray medium pan with spray and heat to medium-high. Cook chicken 6 minutes each side. Remove chicken from heat. Mix water, lemon juice, and apricot preserves for 2 minutes over medium heat in pan, scraping off bottom of pan yummy scrapings. Pour over chicken & serve!

YUM! Easy, quick, yummy :)

Off to catch up on some reading and listen for more trick-or-treaters knocking!
Happy Halloween!
