Hold up. Wait a minute. Today’s Thursday right? Meaning tomorrow is Friday and then it’s pretty much Saturday. And Saturday is New Years Eve (eeeekkkk!!!)

You ready?

Yeah me neither. But I’m getting there. The dress is ready, though I’ve yet to try it on since before I left (and since I’ve consumed endless todiefor Peruvian cuisine and enough cheese and salami to think I’m native Spanish.)

Ain’t gonna lie, it’s been nice. Let’s see what the dress thinks.

I do need to get me some shoes. I don’t really “do” high heels, but it is New Years and I am in Miami so I think I pretty much have to. DSW I’m on my way.

I’m also getting a lil New Years drink guide post ready for ya. Super easy and dank drinks for the New Years. I can’t wait to do the taste testing!!

Until then I wanted to share a few more amazing dishes I’ve been devouring since I left the USA came to Miami.

This has been the go-to salad in the casa these days. Growing up, salad was iceberg lettuce, cheese, thick dressing and little else. As I’ve grown up, my salad palate has expanded to include spinach/arugula/romaine with lots of veggies, crumbled dank cheese and light splashes of vinaigrettes. And now this trip has revolutionized my perspective of salads completely, as in who cares about lettuce, rawness is where it’s at. p.s. for reals I’ve had it every single day since I arrived and usually eat it with a spoon (gottagetthatdressing.)

asparagus, broccoli and tomato dressed in lime, olive oil and salt

Okay so I’m pretty sure I’m not the first to come up with this but I’ll give some credit to my constant sweet and salty craving taste buds, and to my mom for teaching me to ALWAYS have saltines and ginger ale in the house. For those sick days and after those rough nights. ;) This was quite the sweet and salty dessert last night, I’m sure I don’t have to twist your arm to give it a try.

saltine cracker s’mores with German milk chocolate

And with that last delicious bite I’m off to the sto’ to stock up on Champagne, Cava, Prosecco and some more Champagne.

The New Year is upon us. Get ready!
