I did not think that I would get up another blog this week!
But here I am, pretty much 90% unpacked in the new place, hungry to create new recipes, and able to sit and write for a bit.
The move went a lot easier than I expected. I’m pretty much in love with my new kitchen, especially since there’s a window in it and the view is spectacular.
Braedon loves all of his new found freedom in this apartment, since it’s more baby proofed than our old one.
I love the light, the view, how homey it already feels, and that I feel like it’s actually mine.
That being said, the last few days have not been all fun and games. I have been working my butt off trying to pack, unpack, decorate, and make it feel like this is somewhere we want to stay for a while.
I finally took a break yesterday and created a couple new recipes for the blog, and planned a little bit of content. It’s time to get me back on track!
I love how consistent that I’ve been with the blog over the last 6 months. I hope that this continues.
Our first family meal made in the new place was a seafood paella risotto. Oh my god. I was craving both the spanish paella flavor and the creaminess of the risotto, so I decided to come up with an amazing recipe. Braedon absolutely loved it, he even ate clams!
Look out on Monday for the recipe!
I needed a break last night and we don’t have much in the house, so I made a mom-a-rita, because wine is not enough after this move.
It’s pretty much a margarita made out of whatever you have in the kitchen. It’s so cool and refreshing after handling a scurrying 10 month old and unpacking at the same time.
- 1 cup red wine
- 1/2 cup lemonade
- 2 shots of tequila (preferably silver)
- 1 shot of triple sec

What is your favorite desk? I’m in the market for one right now and I could use some opinions!
What is something that you want to see on MomNoms After Dark? Any particular drink that you’re just craving and want me to make?
Oh, I almost forgot! Tonight, I’m going to the sneak preview of a new food truck park! That is going to be my next afterdark post! Keep an eye out for it!
And don't forget about the pork risotto that I made on Monday!
