How does tiny little February somehow always seem to go on forever? The weather was horrible pretty much every day, but let’s focus on what was awesome in February.
I went to the wedding of a dear friend this month, and it was lovely. Other than that, I’ve barely left my house. We did go out for dinner on Valentine’s Day. How you know you’ve married the right person? They take you to Five Guys for special occasions. I never get tired of a good cheeseburger and a thick milkshake. And when you can share that experience with someone you love, that’s pure heaven.
While being cooped up in the house avoiding one storm after another this month, we watched the final season of The Good Place. While it wasn’t as strong as the first two seasons, I was still so sad when it ended. It’s like saying goodbye to friends.
We also watched Parasite, and guys, it’s everything everyone has promised. It’s visually stunning, hilarious and horrifying. If you’re still resistant to watching foreign films, this is the time to get over it. After a few minutes, you forget that you’re reading. This story is completely engrossing, and you must see it.
Internet food is starting to become more enticing this month as we’ve all given up on our new year diets. Refried beans are always my favorite part of any Mexican meal, so I’m pretty excited about these Easy Refried Beans from Two Peas & Their Pod.
Speaking of Mexican food, maybe I can serve those refried beans with these incredible looking Saucy Chipotle Chicken Skillet Enchiladas from How Sweet Eats. So what if you have to go to a specialty shop in the West End to get chipotle peppers in Glasgow.
Do I have to wait all the way ’til next year to try this Pull-Apart Biscuit King Cake from Joy the Baker? I don’t know if I can wait that long.
They say Spring is coming. It’s keeping itself well hidden for now, but we know it’s out there. Just keep turning your face toward the sun.
