Fiesta Friday #119
So…I’ve been found.
My high school friends found me. Apparently I was lost and presumed missing. I had no idea! I told them…uhm…I’ve been here all along…
Anyway, it’s been great! We have whatsapp going now. I got to upgrade my phone because of it, since it was so archaic and wouldn’t download the app. But it was a small price to pay.
And now I’m on this chat day and night, barely sleeping. We’re all scattered and live in different time zones, so my phone is continuously dinging.
It’s dinging when I’m asleep. Dinging when I’m awake. Dinging when I brush my teeth, dinging when I’m peeling eggs, dinging when I’m eating, and so on. Someone is always dinging with news updates.
Which is really great, you know. A few more dings and I’ll get caught up and it’ll be as if I’ve been with them all this time.
Old friends…they’re so precious! As the song goes… Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold… How true, right?!
Anyway, as a consequence, my nails…I mean this blog is more neglected than normal. But so are the nails. The polish all chipped…I won’t gross you out any more.
So I’m going to make a point today to shut off my phone and get my pedicure done and most importantly, spend time with you and Fiesta Friday. It’s high time.
And hopefully this weekend I’ll have time to make something special. For all of you, my silver friends! (Btw, I heard silver is a hotter commodity than gold these days!)
Buttermilk Brown Butter Cornbread with Bourbon-Maple Pecan Butter from MB @ Bourbon and Brown Sugar
“Back to basics, guys! It may be just cornbread but it’s the best on the planet. That’s what MB promised. And I tend to agree and why not? Second line on the recipe reads “real maple syrup” and with that the deal is sealed. That’s it! I’m discarding my old cornbread recipe!” — Angie
Dates Iced Coffee from Anjana @ At The Corner of Happy and Harried
“Such a delicious way to get a rich, smooth and dreamy (yes dreamy) refreshing drink AND it’s packed full of nutrients too! ? Anjana’s photography of the drinks is so picture perfect it makes you want to lift one right off the screen!!! ? ” — Laurena
Fried Rice in Tropical Flavors from Kriti @ Krispy Kadhai
“I simply loved how this dish brought us right into the warmth of summer! And, the tropical nature of the dish was only enhanced by serving it in a pineapple.” — Kaila
Pink Rhubarb Ice Cream from Colleen @ Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck
“Rhubarb ice-cream! ? This is just such an exciting flavour and Colleen has presented it as melt-in-the-mouth deliciousness!” — Laurena
