Scrumptious Saturday

So Andrew and I really needed an us day
We have been back in forth home to Charlotte because of our sick grandparents 
and with me being sick the last two weeks and finals 
I was starting to forget what it was like to have us time

So after looking through my beloved pinterest 
Andrew and I picked out some recipes we wanted to make
I was really excited to actually do some of the things I find

The first thing we made is my mom's chocolate chip banana nut bread recipe
I pinned it from their website since I don't have a hard copy of the book

She uses the basis of the betty crocker recipe 
but changes up a little bit
This is my favorite thing to make and we always make it more often during the holidays
Here is the how we do it

Next Andrew and I found a recipe for Baked southwestern egg rolls

I am a huge fan of the ones you can get at Chilis but they are so many calories.
These are more than half so I was so excited to try them.
I gathered the ingredients and followed the recipe
It was so easy and here is what mine looked like
It made about 20. It said it would make 24 but I overstuffed a few and the spilled out the side a little why baking but besides that they were delicious

Now we are relaxing on the couch and watching TV with the pups
Wine in hand and relaxing
That is what I call a perfect Saturday night at the Tuckers :)
