It’s hard to believe that May is already here… like whaaaat?? Where did April go? I feel like I’ve said this at the end of every month, but 2017 is already moving so fast. Before we know it, summer will be here and I’ll be sitting outside, in 100 degree weather, eating a big slice of bright red watermelon. I can’t wait! The first “official” day of summer is sometime in June, but here in Texas it’s going to feel like it a whole lot sooner. But first, before I get ahead of myself, we have to make it through May. Obviously because Cinco de Mayo is in a couple days, it’s only fitting that I share my classic tableside guacamole recipe with y’all!
One of my all-time favorite restaurants, Mi Dia From Scratch, serves this phenomenal tableside guac. They add in all of the essential ingredients needed to make basic guacamole (onions, avocadoes, tomatoes, etc.), but they throw in sundried tomatoes, bacon, and a whole bunch of other genius add-ins. Although I didn’t add anything fancy this particular batch, I listed them in the recipe below. Feel free to give them a try!
When the weekend rolls around, I still like to eat a little healthier, but I’ll treat myself with something a little fancier. Last weekend, I was scrolling through Pinterest and I found a bunch of “skillet” recipes, which in my opinion, is genius. Then, this sweet potato breakfast hash was born! It’s packed with all sorts of deliciousness, like Italian sausage, onions, bell peppers, eggs, and the star of the show, sweet potato. And, it’s filled with all sorts of protein and nutritious vegetables, which is a perfect to start off your day!
Lately, I’ve been getting ready faster in the morning so I’ll have time to make a nice breakfast for myself before I head off to school in the mornings. I’m really proud of myself for that, because I used to not eat breakfast at all, and my stomach would growl during class! Embarrassing. Plus, I’d be super drowsy the entire day and almost inhale my food during lunchtime. So, because of this, my new year’s resolution is to eat breakfast, drink more water, and eat healthier in general. I’ve been having things like avocado toast, acai/smoothie bowls, breakfast burritos, and lots of fruit. Occasionally, I’ll treat myself with something a little sweeter like waffles or pumpkin pancakes (remember those??)
