Do the Humpty Hump, come on and do the Humpty Hump

As you can see by the title I'm excited it's hump day!  Like always I'm ready for the weekend and I'm excited for this one!  But before then we still have 2.5 days till we get there so in the mean time a couple of recipes made by yours truly!  

I actually made this guy a couple weeks ago now and didn't end up sharing it then.  I ended up using Shrimp Scampi recipe from Betty Crocker.  I was good but a couple of the ingredients, the lemon and basil we couldn't taste at all.  So I kinda felt like I could have just used another recipe that's just parsley, garlic, Olive oil and pasta.  I've made that many times and added the shrimp.  They both taste the same to me but were still good!
So Monday my husband and I put tilapia fillets in the fridge to thaw with the full intention of panko breading them like we usually do.  Well low and behold I get a super simple recipe in my inbox that day for Tilapia With Pecan Brown Butter!  Why not?  We like butter, pecans and have pretty much all the ingredients even the wild rice!  This recipe ended up being very simple to make even though I had 3 pots and the microwave going.  I would definitely make it again, hubby devoured it.  It's a bit fancier than we go on a week night but so easy!

Yesterday I FINALLY got my hair cut.  Last cut was June and I would have gone a month earlier but my stylist (my cousin Dakota!) was in Europe last month with her mom!  Her salon, Twisted Scissors in Logan Square, is not exactly on my way to either of my jobs.  I can get about two miles east at one of the train stops but then I have to hoof and bus it a bit.

The left photo below is before right is from this morning.  Unfortunately I forgot my camera to take a photo right after.   I headed to the Field Museum after the cut and had about a mile walk into the wind to get from the Roosevelt "L" stop to the Field!  There is a reason they call it the Windy City!  So the cute almost 60's teased vibe I had going did not last very long unfortunately : (  The real test will be the first time I end up styling it on my own.

Happy Hump Day!  Catch you Friday!
