I’m having a hard time believing that we are already halfway through December and Christmas is just a mere few days away. I feel like the month (year) is flying by and I’m not even prepared. I still need to bake cookies and watch all my holiday favorites! That being said, here’s a glimpse into life lately:
I never blogged about it but after we ran the Big Sur Half Marathon we drove down to Solvang to hang out at our favorite winery and stay for the night. We had dinner at Succulent Cafe and these brussels sprouts were amazing and I can’t stop thinking about them.
The restaurant also had these cool little lights in mason jars and I want to re-create this in my house.
Now that it’s FINALLY feeling like winter here I’m all about the tea, all the time. Holiday teas are in full rotation around here but I also love matcha green tea with almond milk. With a side of Christmas tree.
I’m currently trying to come up with more recipes to use Dark Chocolate Dreams so I don’t just eat it straight from the jar…
We had friends over for a paella party and I didn’t snap a pic of the paella! But I did get a shot of our half-eaten appetizers.
Karla got me the Thug Kitchen cookbook for Christmas (because she’s the coolest) and I made the maple oat banana bread from it. Amazing.
