Dessert instead

Hi friends! Hope youโ€™re having a lovely night <3

Just got back from acupuncture, dinner and a super schweaty Zumba class โ€“ a trifecta of happiness ๐Ÿ™‚

I had every intention of making a โ€œreal dinnerโ€ tonight, but when my friend Marisa suggested we go to acupuncture, stay on the downtown side of Tucson and grab dinner before Zumba, I thought it was an excellent plan.

So instead of spending some of the afternoon making dinner, I made some roons ๐Ÿ˜€



Meyer-lemon lavender


and Chocolate Almond Butter.

The house smells foodgasmical right now ๐Ÿ˜€

It was Marisaโ€™s first acupuncture experience and she was a fan. Itโ€™s funny because I can tell when I havenโ€™t been in a couple of weeks now- my body letโ€™s me know itโ€™s time to book a little acupuncture nap ๐Ÿ™‚ Since I couldnโ€™t see the clock, I had to ask my acupuncturist to wake me up when it had been an hourโ€ฆ otherwise I would have easily snoozed the rest of the night away.

Dinner was at B Line Cafe on 4th Ave:

Grilled mahi mahi tacos with avocado and cabbage, salsa, beans and rice with decaf Hibiscus iced tea.

Yep ๐Ÿ˜€

Now Iโ€™m back at the casa munching some organic strawberries for dessertโ€ฆ


dipped into melted cashew butter ๐Ÿ™‚


Bed is screaming my name- night friends <3

  5. Your nails are too cute!

  6. I need to come eat dessert at your house! ๐Ÿ™‚ Those blonde macaroons look heavenly!

  7. Not related to this partic. post but it’s really hard to imagine Tucson right now. It’s pretty weird thinking about how you had 110 degrees when i’m in the negatives. Well in Celsius that it is. It’s cold, windy (the windchill lowers the ‘feel’ by several degrees and i think to placate people all the weather here has the caveat that it feels like x – which is about 4-5 degrees less than the actual temperature) and there are days of sheet rain that seems to be moving in directly from Antarctica (the closest landmass to where i live). It’s hard to imagine warmth and sun and sitting outside to eat your lunch. So thanks for reminding me that one day summer will come here too ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Wow, those eats look absoutely incredible…what a feast! I want that mexican meal now, lol! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve never actually eaten mexican in a restaurant before, only at home, but having seen so many glorious eating-out dishes on your blog I am definitely tempted to give it a whirl! ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you had such a great evening – trifecta of happiness…that’s an awesome description! xyx

  9. Your macaroons look yummy, and those tacos are killing me! I guess my yogurt w/ cheerios will do for now.

  10. I wonder if you would survive without mexican food! ๐Ÿ˜›

  11. Strawberries plus any nut butter or even better to me…a cacao/avocado/stevia blended pudding…with dark chocolate crumbles…..holy yumballs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I cannot believe you stood on your feet all afternoon baking….dear lord woman, you impress me!

    And what also is impressing me is the quality of your photography in this post. Did you get a new lens or something? Or play with your settings b/c everything is just so much more vibrant and awesome and crisp. Lovin’ the pics here ๐Ÿ™‚

    And of course, lovin’ the macaroons, too!

  13. Those mahi-mahi tacos look amazing!!

    Sometimes I go on baking kicks too.. and i end up with so many baked goods.. I don’teven know what to do with them!

  14. I am now obsessed with the Sally Hansen Nail Effects!!! I did the houndstooth ones last night and i’m in luuurrve!!

  15. I don’t know what looks better– the tacos or the macaroons!! I guess it’ll be a tie ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Fish tacos are my new favorite summer food, and those look outrageous!

  21. Cashew butter is my favorite nut butter by far – the macaroons look amazing as usual!

  22. I don’t think any of the ‘roons would make it to the dehydrator if I was making them. The dough just looks too delicious. I’d eat it all!

  23. I think I said this before–but that nail polish is adorable!

  24. that dinner looks amazing. i want it so bad.

  25. I feel like all I ever want is fish tacos and black beans. All about it.

    Also, I just am craving macaroons like a crazy person now. A picture really is worth a thousand words and those are worth the word “yummy” x 1000!

  26. Acupuncture naps are the best ๐Ÿ™‚
    Strawberries and cashew butter? I have to try that immeditately!

  27. I can’t tell you how delicious those tacos look right now! SCRUMPTIOUS!

  28. Um. Your roons look amazing. May I raid your stash!?!?!

  29. Yum! I never liked the way hardened chocolate crumbles off of dipped strawberries. These sound easier to eat. By the way, the dinner looks great too!

  30. Those tacos look to dieeee for!! yum!

  31. Have you ever posted your macaroon recipe or is it secret? They look amazing, and I would love to know how to make them myself!
