Drained

…how I’ve been feeling lately.

Stress + frustration = no appetite and a strong need to chomp away on sugar. I ate probably about 3x the amount of post-meal candies than I normally do yesterday!

Luckily, I couldn’t sit at home crying and feeling sorry for myself; there was a long-standing dinner date with Joy, Kim, and Sammy. Impossible not to cheer up when it’s Taco Salad night…

…and Arlo’s stealing our footwear.

On my plate – a base of Romaine…

…two types of ground meat with taco seasoning (can you tell which is vegetarian? I couldn’t)…

…salsa, tomatoes, guacamole, Cotija (I left off the sour cream).

Tortilla Chips crumbled on top, plus hot sauce…

Refilled on cheese-less nachos with more guac, (real) meat, and salsa.

Brought a box of Q-Bees to share, plus a pint of strawberries…

…also sampled a piece of incredible Hand Dipped Salt Caramels Joy brought back from NYC (her husband Corey is on Broadway right now in The Best Man!)

    Being with good friends is always a fantastic idea for “refilling our pools”. I want to thank you for show us -Flor de sal-, because I didn´t know this site and I`m going to use it for a gift to one of those friends who likes cooking very much.

    Friends are the best energizers :). We all have those days! For me, when I hop on my bike and go for a ride to the beach, it all melts away.. The thing to remember is that the next morning almost always feels bright & new.

    Btw, your friend’s kitchen ( and the lighting) is kind of amazing!
