This last week was CRAZY…as in I’m still exhausted.
How was your week? I can’t believe it’s school season again already, and next weekend is Labor Day weekend!! Any special plans to celebrate?
Honestly I haven’t even thought about Labor Day…being in another country kind of does that to you. Out here in Las Moras we have a September tradition called the “Fall Fieston.” No, I really have no idea what that means, but it’s a excuse to make fall themed treats (pumpkin scones anyone?), pumpkin spice lattes, and a giant bonfire. I’m not sure when it is occurring, but I’m looking forward to it.
Last night, our co-workers had us over for dinner, and they made a traditional Venezuelan meal of plantain breads, a little like pancakes, topped with meat, black beans, tomatoes, shredded cabbage, garlic and chile sauces and cilantro. It was a yummy change of pace from what we usually eat, and I didn’t have to cook dinner. Woot woot!!
I wasn’t feeling a ton of recipe inspiration while meal planning this weekend, so I’d love to hear what is on your weekly menu! Inspire me, okay?!
