What a week it has been!
First, it started out cold. Enough to make me want soup. If you follow me on Instagram, then you would have seen the Chicken Lemon Orzo Soup that I made for myself. I said myself because my family actually refused it! Oh well, more soup for me.
Right now, though, we’re having a mini heatwave. I said mini because it’s not actually considered a heatwave. It’s 90 degrees out there. After a long winter, that pretty much feels like a heatwave to me!
Work-wise, I had to finish some online training mandated by the state. It took many hours to complete and at the end of each course, a test was given and if you didn’t pass you’d have to retake it.
Some questions were actually very difficult! It almost felt like they wanted to trick you, the way they were written. I haven’t had to sit for a test like that since college!
Anyway, I’m glad I passed and put it behind me.
Now I can concentrate on the more important things, like this blog and the fiesta! Speaking of fiesta, are you all excited Cinco de Mayo will be here tomorrow?! On a Saturday! It’s a fine excuse to load up on Camarones and Albondigas. Make sure you wash them down with lots of margaritas!
Now, features from last week’s fiesta:
“I love how simple these quesadillas are, but as you can see the result is fabulous! Sometimes simple is best. And of course, making them mini makes them so irresistible.” — Angie
“These fudge pops look so rich and chocolate-y that I wanted to grab one right off of the screen!” — Jenny
“I am a big fan of oats for breakfast, and adding sweet potato gives this breakfast even more nutrition. Plus, the maple pecans sound lovely!” — Jenny
“How good do these look! So much flavor going on here! The key is in the garam masala, and Shinta generously shared her mother’s recipe for it. I will have to give it a try very soon.” — Angie
