Sophie's 15th birthday was this Thursday, and she requested a sweet breakfast treat to bring to school with her. Have you made donut muffins? You should, but you shouldn't fool yourself that they are in any way healthier than donuts. I used this recipe, and I did dunk them in melted butter. I think they are probably best warm, but this tray came home empty so day-old is likely just as delicious.
In preparation for our Taco party 2.0 I have been keeping the refrigerator pretty bare. I took this opportunity to throw out a bunch of stuff including a quart jar of preserved lemons. Note to self, make a smaller jar next time. I took a picture of the interior of my newly cleaned and organized shelves. I can't tell you how many times I opened the door just so I could gaze lovingly at my handiwork. The garage fridge remains a mess, stuffed with pounds and pounds of pork shoulder destined to become carnitas, queso fresco, tortillas, tomatillos, hibiscus tea and beef for bulgogi. I hope people show up. I hope not too many people show up and I run out of food. I hope it doesn't rain. I hope all the avocados I bought are perfectly ripe. This will all seem easier with that first margarita in hand, right?
