1. It’s Cinco de Mayo!
Celebrating tonight with guacamole, pork carnitas, and most importantly these Mexican Churro Cupcakes.
2. This weather
I brought my shorts and summer clothes out last weekend, and now it’s in the 50s and raining. Why, why why?
3. Cheese trays
Last weekend we had Dan’s parents over for dinner and I was craving a great cheese tray. Whitefish salad, hummus, veggies, camembert. It did not disappoint.
4. Local butchers
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen what we had for dinner on Sunday and how grateful I am to live in a town where I can walk to a butcher. Especially one who notices they don’t have exactly what I’m looking for and decides to cut it fresh. We’re lucky that our town also includes a chocolate shop, juice bar, coffee shop, and bar. All within a few blocks. We’re so spoiled.
5. Mascarpone Mousse
Remember that delicious dinner we had at Two Fish a few weeks ago? I was impressed by their mascarpone mousse, which I had never tried before, and I decided to make it myself! I promise this recipe is coming over the weekend and I promise that it’s super easy.
