A Fiesta In My Mouth

Did that sound dirty? I don't care.

What's For Dinner?
Southwestern Spring Rolls!

Here's what you'll need:

  • onion (I only used two slices because my sister is stupid and doesn't like onions)
  • spinach (frozen or fresh but if you decide to use fresh be prepared to use a shitload of spinach. deceiving little suckers)
  • 1 can of black beans, rinsed
  • 1 can of corn, drained
  • Mexican shredded cheese (however much your little heart desires, I don't judge.)
  • egg roll sheets

Add all of the ingredients (minus the egg roll sheets) into one bowl and mix. It's not pictured here but I sauteed the spinach and onions before adding it to the bowl

Add seasonings of your choice. I chose chili powder, cumin, and garlic. Scoop a spoonful into your egg roll sheet and spread it into a line from one side corner to the other then take the corner facing you and fold it over the line of food.

Next, you're going to fold the two side corners over the food as well. Now before you roll the rest of it, dampen the last remaining corner with water then roll away from you so the roll doesn't come apart. Repeat until there is no more mix left in the bowl or you run out of egg roll sheets.

Put your rolls in the pan and preheat your oven to 425 F (Add some kind of cooking spray/oil so the rolls don't stick to the foil/pan) Cook for 15 min.

Ugh, they look fantastic and taste so damn good. Feel free to put your own spin on it when you try out this recipe!

Sapphire Eyes

Running errands always seems more fun when you're wearing lipstick. I took it up a half notch and wore blue mascara and I loved the result. Color mascara will most definitely be a staple this fall.

Old & Pretty Things (Part One)

Last week, I found a vintage furniture/trinket shop with some awesome pieces and even better prices! Most of the time you go to vintage places, they want you to pay with a body part and your first born but everything was fairly priced and in great condition. I was so impressed with everything I saw that I went back 3 more times and each time I found something else that I just had to have!

You Look Like A Fairy

Yesterday was my first day back in the office after a month or so (remember, I'm the work from home girl) so I thought I'd get a little extra pretty for my coworkers. One of them told me I looked like a fairy with my hi low skirt and it stuck with me!

A Family Affair

Last Saturday, my sister and I spent the entire day with our other siblings from my dad's previous marriage for the very first time. It was an amazing and exciting day for all of us and we immediately felt like we had known each other forever. I'll admit that I was nervous but I can see it was all for nothing and now I can't wait to get to know them.
