Mexican Street Corn Pasta Salad

Last summer my brother and his fiancé—wait, let me start there.

Big breaking blog announcement: my little brother got engaged to his longtime girlfriend a few months back, so from now on I will be referring to her as his fiancé; it is only proper.

Anyway, my future sister-in-law turned Mike and me on to elote (pronounced ay-low-tay). Elote, or Mexican street corn, is something that for so many years sounded like the oddest and maybe even grossest combination ever, in my opinion. [Read more…]

Tonight’s the night! Last week was the return of Game of Thrones, yes! This week is the return of one of my other favorite shows, Mad Men. Unfortunately, in Mike’s opinion, this show can just be added to the long list of shows that I love that he just doesn’t get. He likes to say it is just ok and he doesn’t get what all the hype is about. [Read more…]

Some weeks are easy to get through. Some weeks breeze by in the blink of an eye. Did that sound like the week you had?

Some weeks are hard to get through. Some weeks inch by at a snail’s pace. Some weeks, every morning feels like the snooze is never really as long as it is supposed to be. Did that sound about right?

Mike and I have been having a countdown to Friday since Sunday night! This week was especially hard for us because we were off for two weeks and this was our first week back to the day to day routine. I found myself even too tired for a glass of wine at the end of the day. I usually like to read before I go to bed and use that time to unwind. However, this week, I didn’t even get through one chapter. I swear, I read one page and then drifted off.

Today, five o’clock cannot come soon enough. If you share my sentiments, I have an adult treat for you.

I have to say, one of my top five favorite go-to cocktails is a Moscow Mule. Lately, I have been in a bit of a whiskey and bourbon mood so I switched things up a bit. Ginger beer and lime are like a wonderful blank canvas that goes well with so many things. If you like the traditional cocktail, you will also love this.

So, take a deep breath, put on some comfy clothes, break into the weekend snacks, and pour yourself a cocktail. You deserve it!
