Some Great Food & Great Company!

Who knew eating with your hands cold be so much fun & amazing! I have only eaten Ethiopian food once before -years back when my dad worked in DC & we visited him. Internet people, if you guys have never had Ethiopian food, go out today and get you some!

A few friends of ours decided to go on a triple date & went to Ethiopian Diamond & it was so good! At first the menu looks a bit intimidating because I had no idea what anything was. Luckily everyone order something different and everyone enjoyed their food, which tells me that everything on their menu is delicious!

Honestly I think I was most excited about eating with my hands! I love trying new foods and feel especially like a winner when said new foods taste amazing as well!

one of the desserts, so chocolaty and yummy!

Deep Dish Heaven

A little known fact about Kat & I, we do not eat any dairy! How can this be? Everything has dairy when you grow up Mexican! Cheese! Sour Cream! I know I know! I thought she was crazy too when she told me she didn’t eat it. But, after a few months, I noticed a difference in not eating it; how bloated I was because of the dairy, and how it affected my mood.

Almost four years later- and we still don’t eat it. Once in a while, when it is in desserts or if someone cooks with it, we will have some. But usually it is not in our diet. At first it was very hard, believe me. But after eating like this for years it has gotten easier and actually I’ve learned that there is still plenty of foods I can eat and still enjoy. How else do you think I’ve been able to keep my plump figure? 🙂

One place that we found to be an amazing place for vegan food is Kitchen 17! On Wednesdays they have the deep dish pizza special, and let me tell you it is so delicious that I don’t even feel like I am missing out on Chicago style deep dish! We ordered the fully loaded and I swear I was in food heaven! If you want to see how awesome vegan food can be, go here!

As you can see we basically killed this deep dish, just us two!

& of course I had to try out the awesome vegan chocolate brownie! I love trying vegan desserts at restaurants because it reaffirms that vegan doesn’t mean nasty. Yes, both were very yummy!

My Favorite Lady’s Special Day

On Sunday, my favorite lady celebrated another birthday, mi abuelita! I love this adorable, funny lady so much. She’s helped me be the woman I am today. I know she won’t read this, but I wish the happiest of birthdays to her. 

My grandpa celebrating with her. The love they have for each other is beyond words. 

Lol my grandma thinks these snap filters are us making fun of her- but she’s just so darn cute!
