Finally relaxing on the couch with my fiancé and sister after a long day of cleaning and getting back into the swing of things.
This evening we gulped down a delicious bottle of Shiraz that Adam picked up from Trader Joe’s accompanied by a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. The English Cheddar Italian Truffles cheese was beyond delish! If you are a truffle lover like we are this cheese is a must.
Tonight’s dinner was Asian salmon and healthy fried rice!

After dinner they were hankering for something sweet – what else is new? 😉 Dessert is like a religion in my family.
I whipped up a banana mug cake. Adam is always a little skeptical of my food experiments and concoctions, but luckily it came out delish! It tasted just like a fluffy, light banana bread.
