This was her face for the first five minutes:
Then Kissy and Tex came over. I think we may make a habbit of getting together weekly, just bc we love each other, that'd be awesome!
Mmmm...and then there was dinner.
I had to tweak my jambalaya recipe to something more suitable for this Mexican holiday. First, what was I gonna do with all the black eyed peas I soaked?
I'll tell you what! A wonderful, fresh new take on rice and beans. Black eyed peas with brown rice, stewed tomatoes, some spices and cilantro. Yuuuum...
And FINALLY, dessert. OHMUHGOODNESS. Avocados split, seeded, peeled all as a vessel for red bean ice cream and cinnamon sugar, drizzled with chocolate. I died. Really, stone cold death. It's a miracle I'm talking to you today. So that definitely surpassed my refined sugar quota for the wee...month.
And, if you can't guess it, all of this Mexican food gave me insane, stressful, nightmares. It reinforced my decision to NOT have a Mexican night at our house.
---hehehe! Lily just brought me the jar of dried mangos to give one to her. THAT was freakin adorable.
Hope you all had a great day yesterday, and an even better one today!
