Awesome in June

Better late than never, June. You’ve been a challenge and a joy. You’ve been totally stressful and totally chill. You’ve been rather damp. Most importantly, you’ve been delicious.

My constant nagging self-doubt has been particularly strong this month, but we’re not here to talk about that. This is where we pretend that everything is awesome. I’ve had a couple of late starts at work which means I can stop off for a roll and sausage and a cup of tea and show up to work without looking like a zombie. That is awesome. I’ve gotten to eat out with my love a few times, including an epic chicken burger at NYC Glasgow. That was definitely awesome. We traveled to England and managed to actually see some sunshine. Truly, truly awesome.

My blog reading has been slow lately, but there’s been plenty of internet deliciousness I’m needing to put in my face.

These shoyu pulled pork sliders are giving me some hardcore homesickness for Hawaii. 

S’mores Doughnuts? Oh my god, yes!

I’m completely in love with the color of this cherry frose. Dangerous.

This month you loved Passion Fruit Green Tea, Peanut Butter Fudge, and Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels. Who needs a bikini body anyway? 

I’m so excited for July and time with my baby. We’ve got some big adventures planned. Let’s do it.

Awesome in May

Awesome in May

May was miles long, and an emotional roller coaster at that. We reveled in the sunny days that May brings by grilling out, enjoying brunch at Cafe Hula, and taking plenty of long walks, including 10 miles along the Kelvin Walkway. We hit up a mediocre food festival where we nonetheless ate some awesome cheese fries. We watched Portugal win Eurovision with a truly beautiful song. And most importantly, I avoided Mother’s Day like a boss. When your mom is dead and you also happen to be in the top 10 of worst moms ever, it’s a horrible horrible holiday. We wrapped it all up with pizza from Pizza Punks before I have to head off on another dreaded camping trip. Looks like June’s gonna be a doozy, too.

What else is up? I finally finished reading The Stand after more than two months. It was good, but not life changing. I just felt so accomplished getting through 1325 pages. We also saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and were thoroughly entertained. 

The internet is delicious as always. This Golden Chai Layer Cake is just completely beautiful. I love a spice cake, but this is just next level gorgeous. 

I definitely want this Minty Mango Margarita Punch to show up at my next party. 

It’s a struggle to find a proper buffalo chicken sandwich in Scotland. This Healthier Oven Fried Sweet Tea Buffalo Chicken Sandwich is singing my song.

Your favorites this month were cheese-stuffed meatloaf, classic crunchy peanut butter cookies, and double chocolate muffins. As always, I’m coming over for dinner. 

June’s a deep dive into summer mode. Get ready to celebrate.

Awesome in April

I think I’ve finally recovered from accompanying 11 young people on an overnight camping expedition that included an 8 mile hike each way. Don’t worry, I had four other amazing adults with me to keep me sane. But add in snow and the world’s most uncomfortable hiking boots, and hopefully you can see why I was a bit traumatized. At least I didn’t bring home any ticks this time.

This month we ventured out to see the Falkirk Wheel, tried a few new restaurants, including Smoak, which was pretty spectacular, and ate more bundt cake than is appropriate for a normal human.

Speaking of bundt cake, can I get a piece of this chocolate peanut butter bundt cake, please? 

Let’s follow it up with with these raspberry lemon meringue tartlets in the hope that spring will bloom forth in all it’s sunshiney glory.

And we can have one more dessert because this one is low fat. Dish me up some secretly healthier chocolate mousse

Buttery Nipple Milkshake | How to be Awesome on $20 a Day

Your favorite recipes this month were Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels, Passion Fruit Green Tea, and Buttery Nipple Millkshakes. I think we might be in a party mood.

May is upon us, complete with two long weekends. I plan to relax to the best of my ability and smile whenever possible. Love it, kids. Every minute.
