Happy Friday! It’s been a really good week. A nice calm week. Just what we needed. Spent as much time as possible outdoors which makes all the difference in shaking my creative juices up. So many projects I can’t wait to start. So many fun ideas for the blog.
Take the weekend to recharge, relax and treat yo self Mama’s! And I wish you all the happiest Mother’s day!
ONE – Hot Sauce Debate // No doubt, I’m a tap-your-uncle girl. Tapatio, that is. It’s my hot sauce of choice…always. On my eggs. On my tacos. On anything, really. But, recently, I’ve been told that I need to spread my wings a little. That there are wayy better hot sauces out there? Say whhhattt? You know I’m always down to try out new stuff, so next week, we’re going to do a hot sauce taste testing. Not really sure of the logistics just yet. So, tell me….what’s your fave hot sauce? What should I add?
Here’s what I’ve picked up for the Hot Sauce Debate so far…..
Valentina // Srirahca // Cholula // Tapatio
TWO – Madwell Top // I love a good striped tee! Stripes pretty much go with anything + everything. You’d die if you saw stripe tee collection in my closet. I found another good one to add to my selection. Originally I had a whole post planned for this newby, but when I saw that it was marked down to $29, I decided to scratch that and share it NOW! This will sell out, and you probably need another one. You’re welcome!
Madewell Mock Neck Tank
THREE – Easy Pickled Red Onions // I got lots of DM’s after posting this on insta-stories yesterday. So, here ya go! This is a quick-pickled onion recipe. Cory claims it’s not authentic enough. lol. I had all the ingredients on hand. And they are killer. I’ve been topping turkey burgers, sandwiches + salads with these bad boys all week.
My homegirl Nikki, she made pickled cabbage for her ahi tuna tacos last night….fucking outstanding. That will be on my to-make list for next week!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 red onion, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
- 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Cram all the sliced red onion in a mason jar. Stick your filled mason jar in the sink, because you will spill and this shit is stinky!
Add all the rest of the ingredients to a sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat.
Pour mixture over the red onions. Allow to cool. Then pop them in the fridge.
FOUR – Coffee Table // Kinda like my dinning table settings, I love styling the coffee table. I love that it’s a small space. Also a space that gets a lot of attention. Stealing items from other rooms to change it up is my jam. I can’t get enough of baby daisies. I grab a bunch ($3.99) every time I make a TJ’s trip lately. I believe they’re called chamomiles. But, I think baby daisies sounds cuter 🙂 So, here’s what my coffee table currently looks like and I’ve linked all the sources below if you need one of these items for your coffee table look!
