What a blur this past week has turned out to be - not that that is a bad thing, I've really just been so extremely busy that the saying "time is of the essence" has been so completely true. So Thursday night I baked a boatload of Nutella cupcakes with peanut butter frosting (recipe to come) so that they would last through the 3 rounds of company we've had over to our home this past weekend and let's just say they didn't disappoint! Not only cupcakes but a chili throwdown was the event of the weekend and sadly I chickened out and didn't enter my vegetarian chili into the mix, but I do think it would have fared quite well now looking back - avocados and poblanos do make some magic together:) Nonetheless, the 8 different chilies that were entered were scrumptious and each unique - now only if Bobby Flay would have shown up!
So my reward for making it through this weekend of playing hostess? - A nice relaxing day at the beach (aka lake) in our neighborhood with some good friends, a very long nature walk (see above) and the biggest and best burrito later on that night...perfect!
All this out and about and hostessing and so on has thinking of the song Marathon by Tennis, an oldie but goodie. Not because I'm on a sailing voyage like the duo in the song (though that would be so much cooler), but because I feel like I've been running one...still, tis a loverly song to have stuck in my head.
Hope your week is getting off to one swell start too darlings!
