Sunday night dinners at 425

6 Mar

Our weekends have been jam-packed recently. I feel like we haven’t had a moment to catch our breath. Between wedding planning, getting the new place together, family, friends and work we are booked solid every weekend until May. Is this what happens when you become an adult? I have to keep reminding myself that these are problems of abundance and not to get overwhelmed. I guess I am telling you all of this because I have to commend us for be able to put together a Sunday night dinner in 45 minutes flat. So what I did it in sweaty workout clothes! At least I took a two-minute shower and brushed my hair before my Dad and step-mama Pamela arrived!

I decided to go with a Mexican themed dinner this time around because we are a family who enjoys guacamole and margaritas. I followed a simple recipe for the meat and set up a taco bar with a bunch of different toppings- so easy! We also made fresh margaritas (translation, squeezed a million limes) because I HATE margarita mixers. They were delicious. It takes a bit of work but it’s totally worth it.

How many limes does it take to make 4 fresh margaritas? Too many!

    You two make me so happy with your smiles and fun family things. By the way, love your kitchen, was it that way in the new house or did you re-do it?
