Every once in a while I like to share things I’m currently loving, today is one of those times. But I also want to share one thing that I didn’t care for this week.
One thing that I really loved this week, and every week I’ve lived in this apartment, is the view and light from my balcony. I may not love this apartment but I do the beautiful light shadows that shine in just about everyday. Those trees look calm but it’s like a small zoo out there — more on that another time.
Meet V-8’s Mexican cousin. This vegetable juice made with 8 different vegetables is given an extra boost of flavour with a touch of lime and a pinch of chile. It is the very best vegetable juice I’ve ever drank! And no, Herdez is not paying me to say this. If you have the opportunity to taste this juice do it…Yum now I’ve got my mouth watering.
I love that now I have all the ingredients to make fresh Mexican salsas. I’ve been perfecting my salsa verde and will be sharing the recipe soon.
I love finding photos I had forgot about. This is one of the first photos I snapped when we arrived in Playa del Carmen. Palm trees, sunshine, sand and awesome food. Need I say more.
I love that every time we go out for a walk we discover something new in this fantastic Riviera Maya city. We stumbled upon this vibrant political street art and were fascinated by it. There was a whole story and I hope to go back and photograph the whole wall.
Remember earlier in the week I shared the information on Yucatan avocados? I mentioned that I would be cooking something with them. Well, I did. But I’m not going to share the recipe because I didn’t love it. I’m a huge fan of avocados but I’m thinking making a pasta sauce is not the best use of them. Maybe someday I’ll try making another avocado pasta sauce, if I do I’ll share a recipe then.
Hey, sometimes you just don’t win in the kitchen — and that’s okay! :)
The following pictures are photos I shared on social media and I’d like to share them with you here now.
I love that though this is a tourist destination, there are still plenty of spots to go and get away from the crowds. I also love palm trees, sand and the water.
I bought my very first ever cast iron pan, and I love it! So many people shared great tips on using them. I’ve been having a blast seasoning it and breaking it in.
It hasn’t rained in 15 days. I don’t mind that so much. But when it does rain, I don’t mind it either. I love how pretty the raindrops look on the leaves outside my window.
Last week I shared the first part of our trip to Belize. This black and white photo is an out-take from the set. We don’t see black and white photos too often nowadays, but I still think they’re beautiful.
Lastly, I think my favourite part of this week was cooking, photographing and eating this tapas dinner. I loved washing it down with a delectable bottle of red wine and I so loved eating the leftovers the following day.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a fantastic weekend! I’ll be back soon with a brand new recipe. (waving adios)
