Happy May! We are in for another month of quarantine here in Chicago. We are now required to wear masks when leaving the house. I have a few already but I did order some from Madewell so I can wash and wear them again. The highlight of my week was finding peonies at a local flower shop. I spotted them in the window, ran home to give them a call to pay over the phone and ran back to collect them. Every morning seeing them on the kitchen table makes me SO happy. They were expensive but so worth every penny for happiness. It is the little things that mean the most right now. My other highlight was hearing from my sister and her kids. Every time we FaceTime it brings me so much joy.
I was supposed to be in Mexico this past weekend so I went with a Mexican theme night for dinner. I made this Dutch Oven Jalapeño and Cheddar Bread and Tortilla Soup from local chef Rick Baylas. I have to say cooking bread in a dutch oven was ridiculously easy! It was almost so easy that I thought I wasn’t doing it right and gave up and pitched everything. I used this Le Creuset Oven
My favorite walking shoes are over 50% off right now. They are currently sold out at Madewell but they are available at Nordstrom. They are great for a walk around the neighborhood. Make sure to buy socks so you don’t get blisters.
I have spent so much time in the kitchen lately, I have been doing a lot of cleaning and reorganization. Plus, I am getting really good at leftovers. (I hate leftovers) I ordered these to hold all my food in the fridge to keep my food fresh. A steal on Amazon for $40. I also ordered these for the pantry which haven’t shipped yet, hopefully soon.
This blue lightweight sweater is currently in my shopping cart at JCrew. I feel like I will wear it all the time. I have the heavier Winter version in camel brown.
