Cinco De Mayo
I cannot believe we are already moving into May! It is always fun to celebrate Cinco De Mayo so I wanted to share some cute pieces that would be perfect for the occasion! It is all about ruffles, flowers, and bright colors – I always love to add some statement accessories to make everything pop! I am also sharing a super delicious side dish below that would be perfect to bring to a get together this weekend! It costs under $20 to make and it is a crowd pleaser for sure!
Asian Mango Slaw
My mom introduced me to this recipe and I fell in love with it! Originally it is from the cookbook Against All Grain so I cannot take any credit for this one but I did dumb it down a bit to make it more cost-effective and less time consuming to make. It costs under $20 for all of the ingredients and it is the most refreshing and delicious side dish ever! We make it on Sundays and eat it with lunches and dinners throughout the week! There is a good amount of chopping but that is about it! I am sharing the recipe below along with a downloadable PDF for you to save to your computer or phone!
