I’m 27 today!
I’m a year older, and to be honest, all I want for my Birthday is to finally be able to buy my 2 buck chuck at Trader Joe’s without the cashier making a joke about how I look 16.
It happens too often.
We’re heading to Mexico Thursday morning and wish I could teleport there rn because my body is ready to inhale all the food! I’m seriously considering only packing running shorts so I can indulge comfortably!
It’s just a short trip but enough para recargar las pilas!
We’re going to hang out with family, do some shopping, and hopefully trek up El Volcán de Colima, Colima’s last active Volcano.
I got my hands on these beautiful Cara Cara Oranges (cross between Washington and Bahia Navel) which are known for their pink orange flesh and I’m so glad I found them–I cannot get over how gorgeous the inside is!
If you’ve read some of my previous posts, you know I love me a tart cocktail, so it’s only appropriate that I have one for my Birthday.
As my mom would say, obviooó osea hellow.
It’s a twist on the South American classic, the Pisco Sour. It’s a little smokey and a little tart, and really easy to make. I also feel like this drink also makes for a good party trick because the foam will make you look fancy af.
Here’s to being blessed with another year, good eats, and the good fight!
