Hello dears! I’ve been finding it hard to get back into the swing of things, as you can probably tell by my blog absence, but I’m fiiiinally getting back to a normal schedule. It’s been a hot minute since I participated in Jenn’s WIAW, so I’ve decided that’s the perfect thing to help me get back into the swing of blogging!
As usual, thanks to Jenn for hosting.Since I’ve gotten back from Mexico I’ve barely taken any pictures of my food, so I’m sharing my food pictures from Mexico!Here’s how most mornings started:
Usually with a view like this:
We had a lot of chocolate croissants too, which were just divine, but we ate them too quickly for me to snap any pics.The second day of vacay we went to this awesome place downtown with amazing authentic food. The ceviche blew my mind. SO fresh with tons of lime and flavors:
Unfortunately I’m pretty sure I’m allergic to shellfish. I’ve been noticing myself getting itchy after eating them, but I broke out into hives this time so I think a trip to the doctor is in order to confirm that allergy. No shellfish in the meantime! Honestly, this dish was worth the allergic reaction. So. Good.I also had an amazing coconut martini at that place. It had sweetened sugary coconut flakes all around the rim of the glass. I could have literally eaten a bowl of that!
I wish I remembered to snap a picture of the restaurant, there’s wallpaper behind me in that picture, but we were actually in a garden with trees surrounding us except for behind me. Gorgeous place.
The night I wore my blue dress from the last post we went to a fancy steakhouse and I have to say that was tied for the best meal I had on vacation.
The steak was OUTSTANDING and the funny looking thing towards the bottom was a pepper filled with goat cheese and topped with olive oil and black sesame seeds. Don’t even get me started on the garlic mashed potatoes and the cream corn, they may look boring, but they were the best I’ve ever eaten.
Tied for the best meal I had was the chicken mole I had at a restaurant close to our hotel. It was just slightly sweet with the perfect amount of spice and was SO flavorful… I inhaled it before I took a picture haha. I did manage to snap a picture of JD’s food though:
That thing that looks like a stick of butter is actually cheese. Uh-maze-ing. The rest of it is a bunch of different meats, avocados and even cactus on top of some sort of stew. I wish I snapped a better picture of the bowl, it was a volcanic stone bowl and it was huuuge.
Those are the highlights of my eats in Mexico, but we also had the beest iced hazelnut macchiato at the airport while waiting for our flight home.
This past weekend, right after spring break, we went home for my brother’s birthday and basically gorged ourselves the whole weekend, but it was worth it!
Family (minus dad taking the picture) & the boy
Chocolate cake with peanut butter cream cheese frosting and chocolate peanut butter ganace. A.k.a. the best cake ever that my mom makes for almost everyone’s birthdays in my fam.
Needless to say, I’m feeling a little bloated and my jeans are a tad bit tight, but I’ve definitely done worse on vacation, so I’m happy! Focus on eating healthy foods in the upcoming weeks though haha.
Have a great day everyone!
