Guacamole & Margaritas

I’ve said it here before: I have a problem with Mexican food. The problem of course, is that I could eat it nearly every single day of my life and never tire of it. I’ve passed this genetically on to my punks thanks to the cravings I had during my pregnancies. I dragged my poor husband out for steak enchiladas and guacamole nearly every weekend throughout the gestation of all three babies. They can be happy they got their love of Mexican food from me. Because I’m sure they’ll blame me later for other not-so-fun qualities I’ve passed on to them, attributes which we will not discuss here today – unless I have too many margaritas…hic!

How To Make & Keep Friends

Feeling lonely this summer?

Wanna make some new friends, or endear yourself to the friends you already have? Make a few phone calls, whip up a platter of these little lovelies, and your pals will come crawling out of the woodwork in no time flat.

Sear Roasted Salmon

I spent this past weekend up north with four of my dearest friends from high school. We had an fabulous visit, as we always do — sipping wine, catching up on each other’s lives, and reminiscing about the old days, when we grew up together in Rochester, Minnesota.

I fully admit that I revert back to the mid-80’s when I’m with this particular group – we tend to eat a lot of junk food, and imbibe on a few more cocktails that we typically do in our normal daily lives. Of course, we put on our 80’s music; this year, our playlist for the weekend was (naturally) monopolized by Michael Jackson. We stay up ENTIRELY too late (3:10 a.m, thank you very much), dance around in our pajamas, laugh our faces off, and of course, enjoy every minute we have together.
