Honeymoon Destination Revealed

My guess is that about 99 percent of you are going to scroll right past this lunch post to get right to the honeymoon decision, so let’s make all the food chatter nice ‘n’ quick!

Leftovers made lunch assembly awfully easy.

I made myself a buffalo chicken sandwich using the leftover meat from Tuesday night’s dinner.

On the side I enjoyed fresh strawberries and sliced radishes marinated in Italian dressing.


Italian Marinated Radishes

The Italian dressing helped take some of the spiciness away from the radishes, but they’re still a little too intense for me. I like them better in salads than on their own fo’ sho’.

Sandwiches Make Me Happy. Seriously. Any Sandwich.

The Spread

Good news: The buffalo chicken was just as tasty a couple of days later.

Thanks to the three of you who read my food mumbo-jumbo. Now onto the honeymoon fun! 😀

Honeymoon Destination Revealed

After months and months of research, planning and talking to everyone we know about travel recommendations, Ryan and I finally selected our honeymoon destination.

We considered a lot of different options ranging from the Dominican Republic to Costa Rica to Hawaii. (Well, maybe I just considered Hawaii. 😉 )

In the end, we decided to go to St. Lucia!

St. Lucia

Thank you so, so much to all of you for your comments, recommendations and emails. Both Ryan and I read every single one and, for a while there, felt like we were on a wild goose chase, visiting all the places you mentioned and weighing our options.

We selected St. Lucia because it met our requirements:

  • Caribbean location
  • Beautiful beach
  • Adventurous activities

While in St. Lucia, Ryan and I hope to relax on the gorgeous beaches, but also enjoy some fun activities. On our possible to-do list:

  • Scuba diving
  • Jungle biking
  • Zip lining
  • Rainforest hike

One thing we will not be doing? Deep sea fishing… We definitely do not want to revisit our sea sick ways on our honeymoon.

Question of the Afternoon

  • In your opinion, what is the perfect length of time for a honeymoon?

Ryan and I plan to stay in St. Lucia for a week (six nights).

Easy Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

Hold the phone.

Tonight’s dinner was fan-flippin’-tastic.

Who knew making a homemade buffalo chicken sandwich could be so simple and so tasty thanks to only two ingredients?

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

To begin making our sandwiches, I first baked two Murray’s family farmed chicken breasts in the oven at 400 degrees for approximately 25 minutes.

Once the chicken was fully cooked, I pulled it using two forks before tossing three ounces of the cooked meat in the buffalo sauce I made by combining one tablespoon of Franks RedHot Wings buffalo sauce and one tablespoon of grated Parmesan and Romano cheese.

Along with our buffalo chicken sandwiches, we enjoyed cold cucumber slices to distract our taste buds from some of the heat from the hot sauce.

If you’re a fan of buffalo chicken wings, you must make this sandwich!

When I saw Lisa make a buffalo chicken salad using this two-ingredient buffalo sauce that she saw on Hungry-Girl.com, I knew it would be a winner, and boy-oh-boy it is!

If you’re weary of the spiciness, don’t be! It definitely has a kick to it, but I’m terrible with spicy foods and I didn’t think it was too hot.


Easy Buffalo Chicken Sandwich (adapted from Hungry-Girl’s Buffalo Chicken Choppity Chop Salad)


  • One 3-ounce cooked chicken breast, pulled (You may also used canned chicken to save time)
  • 1 tbsp. Frank’s RedHot Wings Buffalo Sauce
  • 1 tbsp. Grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 whole wheat hamburger bun or sandwich thin


Combine pulled chicken, Frank’s RedHot Wings Buffalo Sauce and Parmesan cheese in a bowl until chicken is fully coated. Microwave approximately 35 seconds until warm. Place buffalo chicken on top of whole wheat bun and enjoy!
