Joyful Week no. 16
It’s time for another Joyful Week here at Proof & Parchment! This past week I’ve been enjoying some good eats & drinks especially all things Mexican along with recreating my all time favorite kale caesar salad from SweetGreen. Besides that I’m enjoying extra snuggle sessions with my furbaby Sophie & soaking in the sun!
Sophie, Sun, & Snuggles
This is a pretty simple joyful part of my week but I love spending time with Sophie and getting lots of pets and snuggles in. Especially in the early part of the day when the sun is shining in just right Sophie can always be found sunbathing! She’s just like me and loves the sun 🙂 It’s also a nice way for me to take a few minutes and just enjoy the moment away from my to do list.
I’m pretty much obsessed with anything related to Mexican food (or at least our American version of Mexican food). So what’s better than hosting a mini happy hour with friends and having homemade margaritas, fresh chips & salsa, and of course all the guacamole! I could probably live off chips & salsa so I might have to make it a habit to host more Margarita Mondays or Taco Tuesdays. What other days of the week can we make into a Mexican food day?!
Kale Caesar Salad
I’m wrapping up this week’s joyful list with another food item. This one is all about the kale and my favorite salad ever: the kale caesar salad from SweetGreen. I would have it pretty much every other week when I lived in Virginia and it’s so good. I’ve been missing having some of my favorite fast casual restaurants around, but luckily I found a blogger with a copy cat recipe for their caesar dressing and I was able to find all the ingredients here. And let me tell you it was spot on! I can’t tell you how happy it made me and since I’ve made the dressing, I’ve been making these kale caesar salads non stop.
