So. Much. Fun.

Probably the first weekend in a while where I’m feeling well rested and ready to take on the week. It was the perfect mix of being lazy and getting out there – the way all long weekends should be. :)

Derek and I emphasized the lazy theme this afternoon with a few hours in front of the tv. A trip to the grocery store was thrown in there as well. I picked up some lovely fresh figs (figs! in season! yippee!!), ricotta cheese, chocolate chunks, and honey.

Nothing fancy here. Basically just threw everything in a pot and let it simmer for an hour.

  • oregano
  • chili powder

  • avocado
  • cheddar cheese
