You know how fun vacations give you something to look forward to?
I definitely am not wishing away the summer - I plan to have a lot of fun between now and September - but. I just booked a trip to Vegas for my birthday.
I'm going with Jason. I'm meeting a good friend there. We have tickets to Motley Crue. At The Joint. Staying at Hard Rock.
and definitely gives me something to look forward to.
...which I need right now.
Shorter term things I am looking forward to? Jason's birthday in late June. Jason's mom visiting in early June. Vida Vegan Con in late May.
and early May? Cinco de Mayo.
We might be having a little shindig this weekend. The weather has been insanely perfectly beautiful, and I am ready to have some friends over and get my relax on. Sitting in the sun, goodies on the grill, pups in the grass, tequila in my glass?
These are the easiest enchiladas I have ever made. Jason says they are the best he's ever had. Sounds good to me! Pacific Natural Foods just launched a new line of beans - refried, baked, black. They are packaged in a smaller size of the signature Pacific shelf stable boxes. Some are vegan, all are delicious.
I stuffed their refried beans in these enchiladas, and combined their (also vegan) tortilla soup starter with some coconut cream for a creamy cool sauce. These are perfect for Cinco de Mayo!
