One of my faaavorite people in the world is home for Spring break and I couldn’t be more elated. Obviously, it’s moments like this that call for even more food than unusual and I, for one, can’t complain.
I made Kim Bap for snacking,
We got Vietnamese for dinner,
and sprawled out in the sun all day sipping chocolate infused espresso.
A sushi run the next day amounted to
the ever delicious eel hand roll
and hot mochi cakes with green tea ice cream for dessert!
at the new hot spot for dinner
Braised pork belly and jerk chicken
This is my new very special friend J’s first hive check of the season. 80k bees produce the most gorgeous golden honey, not a bad trade off for a few bee stings here and there if you ask me *insert sheepish grin*
A walk at the local park
and I found this little guy wrapped around flower petals…a good a place as any
Birthday dinner that included grilled pesto shrimp and 3 different types of cheesecake? That is what I call a win-win, sir!
A crazy fun drag show to cap the weekend.
and flowers for moi.
As I write this, I’m listening to baby brother strum his guitar in the next room and unfurl his heart wrenching lyrics and I smile, pause, and continue to write.
I can’t wait to eat through this next week with him!
Life can apparently sting like bees but it’s nothing that cheesecake and family can’t fix!
your Squishy Monster ^.~
