WIAW

This wednesday started like any other, (I’m ignoring the fact that there are only a few of these precious mornings with these girls left) at 929 with Rachel, Lesley, Lauren, and Magan.

Zambia coffee for me with half & half and Splenda. (Did I mention my speech today was on artificial sweeteners? Oh, the irony.)

After our meeting, I had to finish up my speech. I spent every last available minute typing so breakfast was of the grab and go- drive and eat variety. A handful of dark chocolate almonds & a banana!

I was so nervous for my speech I waited until it was over to have lunch! McAlisters & Local Culture~ decided a treat was in store!

Choose 2: Turkey Melt on Pita & a cup of Broccoli Cheddar Soup!

This half white chocolate mousse/half orange sorbet concoction really hit the spot!

Dr. Pepper ten between lunch & dinner for… well, just because I enjoy them. It is unusual for me not to have a snack between lunch and dinner, but I think today my late lunch and dessert with lunch helped!

Dinner was Salmon Mitchell made 🙂 with edamame and Annie’s shells & cheese. Easy, yet satisfying and delicious!

Everything was successfully done oven-less.

The oven has been off limits around hear lately due to this situation. A few to many drippy sweet potatoes lead to some major smoke and need for cleaning!

Somehow avoided the after dinner snacking, too! That is rare.

I am usually the one running around asking if anyone has anything sweet 😉

How was your day?

“Copy Cat” Las Delicias Guacamole

Fresh, Healthy, Delicious, Stick to your Ribs DIP!

Guacamole is in itself incredible. Las Delicias in Memphis takes it a step further. This family owned, authentic Mexican Restaurant is infamous around the 901. With little to no decoration and located on a street corner in a questionable part of town, the environment is definitely not what brings people in! It’s the food. They know how to do mexican food! And at a good price!

My family goes almost every weekend (you think I’m exaggerating!) and Mitchell and I are always sure to make it a priority when we are home!

We start out with guacamole and cheese dip. The guac is to die for. It’s very chunky and requires a spoon to pile a helping on each chip… You have got to have it. If you’re in Memphis, or within 50 miles, GO! And if not… do what we do. Fake it til you make it.

No recipe involved. All it takes is avocado, tomato, and onion chopped. Toss the chunks (Avocado-measuring about a square inch/Tomatos & onions diced small) in your most festive bowl… dust with cilantro if you’ve got it…spritz with some fresh lemon and lime too!

(To that I say- GOOD LUCK!)

You’ll be saying holy guacamole by the 2nd bite!
