Can you believe that the month of August is almost over? It is hard to believe that Hans and I moved back to the US this winter, it seems like a few weeks ago. Time sure does fly by, doesn’t it? All the more reason to live and love life. I haven’t taken many food photos this past week but I do have a few.
My mom and I were invited to our friend Sherry’s house for dinner. You can imagine my excitement because Sherry is a fantastic cook. And yet again, she surprised me with her amazing skills. I honestly do not care for lasagna and when I heard she made black bean lasagna, I just thought to myself.. be polite even though you don’t like lasagna. But, then I tasted it. It was amazing. Cheesy and flavorful but not overly so. I liked it so much that I even asked for the recipe. Thanks for having us over Sherry!!
I had my black bean lasagna with a glass of wine, a side salad and bruschetta (not pictured)
Some other eats that I have been enjoying lately.
Blueberries that I got from a blueberry farm awhile ago and froze them, went back to Charlotte and forgot about them until now.
PB&J, of course.
*I did some major damage to my wallet on Friday night at the mall with my mom. But, I found some fabulous new fall trends for super cheap! and some killer black heels, love it! After the mall, my mom suggested Mexican.. who am I to say no to the deliciousness that is Mexican food?
I created my own salad using their menu. I told the waitress that I wanted a bed of greens topped with fajita veggies, guacamole and salsa. It was delicious! I got to taste all the flavors that I crave with Mexican food without my jeans feeling tight when I left the restaurant 🙂
Some Saturday night shenanigans, haha…. no words.
My mom and her work friend, we decided to check out the new Hard Rock casino. Yes, I hang out with my mom.. and yes, I helped create the balloon animals.. I am cool like that.
And to end this massive, random post. I received my first baking paycheck. The order? Chocolate cupcakes with strawberry filling. I always thought strawberry filling goes with vanilla. I was right and had a hard time finding a recipe so I came up with my own. They loved these cupcakes. I heard they were only down to 2 cupcakes after 2 hours.
The strawberry filling.
With white chocolate frosting. I tried piping the frosting but it wasn’t thick enough.. any suggestions?
