To May

April was a rough month, but here’s lookin’ at you, May.

It’s been hard to find the words to write, so for now I hope you’ll like these pictures and links (and look for the guava mojito recipe that I sneakily snuck as well). Recipes soon.

No visit to Colorado would be complete without trusted helpers making brownies.

An unexpected, wonderful visit and the feast that ensued: fish tacos, sopa de arroz, black beans,
cactus salad, and a riff on this shredded cabbage slaw.

Looking back at these pictures, April doesn’t seem half bad.

    Looks like some good recipes coming! Can’t wait! I really like the toes in the pictures, too. I just painted mine the same color! Hope May is MUCH better for you!

    Funny, I was thinking the SAME thing about the toes! All the food and drink look wonderful. I’ll let you know when I make these mojitos – maybe as a post-exams celebration drink. May will be awesome. 🙂 Can’t wait to see you again!
