And There Is No Place to Privately Sob Here

I do this and then fall apart all over again.

Guacamole & The Incredible, Edible Egg

What's up there, lemon square!

I took another culinary adventure today. I found this recipe a few days ago and immediately pinned it on Pinterest thinking that I would eventually find the time for it. I spent all week thinking about it so I finally got all the ingredients yesterday and made it!

I didn't really follow the recipe and just kind of guessed based on the pictures. I just added hard boiled egg (discard the yolks) to regular guacamole. It turned out really great. I still have more avocados and might try the recipe to the letter later this week & take it to work for lunch. I will probably forget to post about that so just know that I am thinking about it, haha.

My guac browned a little bit even though I made sure to add lime juice (apparently the acidity is good for flavor as well as keeping it bright green). I ate this with pita chips and eventually just a spoon because it was damn delicious.

The Result!

Also, I Just Really Love Gifs

I just got back from volleyball (which was fun). My upstairs neighbor is making a lot of noise and the things I wanted to happen today haven't so I sorta feel like all of the following:

I am glad I bookmarked these.

Better Than Green Beer

I am way behind on blogging... my apologies.

Anyways, I tried out this recipe that Courtney showed me to make beer jell-o shots for St. Patricks Day. They turned out really well and were surprisingly very easy to make. I used Harp as the ale - but it would work with just about anything. They tasted pretty great too. You can add whiskey for an extra kick. It was nice to be able to do several and enjoy the flavor without the fear of getting too wasted from the traditional vodka kinda. 

Make some beer jello shots for your next party and let me know how it goes in the comments.
