Steve and Lena came to celebrate my 29th birthday! We had coconut and strawberry cake that I finished when they got there and vodka lemonade with lemon slice ice cubes. I wore the dress I just got from Forever 21 with a gift card Jackie gave me. I think it really complimented the retro cool of the refreshments.
FOr tonight I’m making this:

It is so hot here today. I know it’s probably equally hot where you are. I just like to complain.
Anyway, because of the heat I decided to make an All-American meal, of sorts. This hot weather makes me think of summer evenings, even if it’s only April.
I know we talked about making turkey burgers for Friday, but I tested them out a little early. I made them tonight with sweet potato fries, cilantro aioli and sugar peas. I drank reisling with it. Then I ate vanilla ice cream with strawberries. I know.
I finished the meal with a food coma that made it hard to get back to work for class tomorrow. The heat isn’t helping. Maybe I need to sit outside to cool off.
