Along with the general worldwide population, I am experiencing pause and reflection during this time of catastrophic need - so much so that blogging randomness with all that is happening in Texas right now seems completely shallow, at best. So here's this instead:
I get absolutely NO KICKBACKS from Blue Apron for posting this meal. In fact, I am not sure exactly what keeps me coming back to making more of these dishes, but I do. And they taste AMAZING. Not only that, but I get to use funky words like "Piquillo" and ""Iberian-Style Spice Blend" when describing the dishes I've cooked up. Ok well, if anything, Blue Apron helps me to sound well-versed in my cooking habits, right?
What an amazingly perfect way to kick off a new school year, right? And what a fantastic way to get paid - by dancing around whooping and hollering at a pep rally, pie eating contest and all! Oh, and did I mention they filmed an actual commercial out of this wild and crazy event? Feeling kind of rock star-ish right about now. *w00t!*
Don't get me wrong. I really do feel a slight sense of remorse for partying it up and having the time of my life shopping at the outlet mall to the tune of Low by Flo Rida less than 2 days after the youngest headed off to college. Wait... nope. I actually don't. *happy dance ensues*
Today marked the final successful launch of the youngest to his dream university. Today also marked the day of the biggest HAPPY DANCE ever by the youngest's Mom who just poured herself a big sparkly glass of Pinot Grigio.
BEST. FEELING. EVER.
On the final Sunday before the youngest heads off to college making the empty nest complete, this is what happens: SALON DAY FOR MOM. My Diva Stylist set me up with highlights, lowlights, and a fresh trim all while checking out my Hawaiian vacation photos and luau videos, the perfect way to wrap up an amazing chapter of life.
Let the new adventures begin!
