My overdue post from last week should be up soon (uh, hopefully?). Until then, enjoy my iPhone pictures.
My two favorite things are politics & ice cream so my evenings have been pretty great lately.
Dinner with my favs who make even hard times good times (we made this pasta! & then we had pie!)
I have been SUPER into this salad lately. With chicken for Senor and in a heaping bowl without salad for me. (pro-tip, the salad dressing recipe makes a crazy large amount)
Dear Pittsburgh People: if you haven’t hit up Smoke Taqueria you are missing out on life. FOR REAL. This watermelon auga fresca was outrageous & the rest of the food was so great I didn’t even bother to take a picture.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcake test batch for cupcakes I’m going to make for my friend’s bridal shower this weekend. More on that later, also.
Whipped egg whites are pretty
