Party Menu

Morning! Hope you’re having a great day so far <3

Thanks for all of the tips about Bell and possibly adopting a friend for her. We decided to wait it out and reassess in a month to see how she’s doing. And in the meantime, make sure to give her lots of love and attention, starting off with an extra long walk this morning 🙂bell8

Last night was Mexican Monday over here 😀

I told the Pilot to hurry up and get home from work… I had a lot of guacamole and couldn’t possibly eat it all alone 😉


To go with our guacamole and chips, I made quesadillas- chipotle-lime shrimp (from Costco) and goat cheese for me on a teff tortilla, and shrimp and queso fresco for the Pilot on corn tortillas.

Grilled the quesadillas on the George Foreman and served with refried black beans.


Delicioso 🙂

I’ve been trying to think of menu ideas for our housewarming party, which is in two weekends! [This weekend we won’t be able to prep since we’ll be partying it up in Philly]

Mexican is usually perfect for a crowd, so here’s what I’m thinking for a tentative menu:

-Green corn tamales



-Mexican rice

-Mini chimichangas [from El Molinito]

-Homemade horchata and Sangria


-Chips, salsa, guacamole

-Fruit skewers with lime juice and mint

-Tres leches cake


I’m going to be cooking up a storm next week 🙂

If you have any ideas, let me know!

I’m off to meet a friend for bfast and then getting started on the day’s to-dos.

See ya laterrrr <3



Something to talk about: How’s your Make August Awesome checklist going? We’re halfway through the month!

I still need to: go for a swim, get a new cookbook and sign up for a fitness event 🙂

    Quesadillas were on the menu tonight but got pushed to tomorrow- delicious!

    Tamales are a lot of work–what if you did a “make your own taco” bar? You’d just be prepping the individual ingredients.

    Tamales are a lot of work but sooo worth it, especially green corn! Yum! Great menu 🙂
