This Week’s Small Pleasures #31


The firsts few days of 2015 turned out pretty chill.

1. I popped my food processor cherry by making insanely good guacamole followed by flourless date coconut brownies (recipe coming.)

2. We stayed home for New Year’s and it was perfect. We had a bit of an international celebration. Italian by drinking prosecco and eating prosciutto wrapped melon, and Mexican by eating 12 grapes, a tradition that symbolizes luck for every coming month of the year. No hangover the next day.

 3. A clean house. We started off Saturday morning by sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, changing the sheets, doing laundry and giving our dirtiest kitty a bath. It always feels good to have a clean house.

4. Once again, excellent Mexican food at ¿Por Qué No? in Portland.

  1. Thanks Mani for this great idea. What a beautiful way to count your blessings and be thankful and happy for that. I hope to continue this every week. In the mean time here is my this week’s small pleasures #1: 🙂


  2. Happy New Year Mani. Sounds like you had a very good week and a special New Year’s Eve with your Hubby.


  3. I would love the recipe for your guacamole


    1. Hey Kylie! Better late than better right? My guacamole recipe consists of blending together: 1 garlic clove, 1 serrano chile seeded, 1/2 cup cilantro, 1 scallion, 3 avocados, 3-4 tbsps of lemon juice, pinch of cumin, 1/4 tsp salt. 😛


      1. Thanks Mani, i’ll try it
