Five on Friday!

Happy Cinco de Mayo Friday!
one. In honor of Cinco de Mayo I had to share my favorite guacamole recipe!
two. What's that? You say you want another festive recipe? Okay, you got it! Here is my favorite Cinco de Mayo beverage -- Cherry Beergaritas, to go alongside your guac!
three. Is this not the happiest welcome mat? I impulsively picked it up at Target last week and was convinced Matt was going to make me take it back as soon as he arrived home so I ripped off the tags right away! But to my surprise...he loved it!  
four. It's Teacher Appreciation Week at the kiddos' school. Each day is a different theme/gift and yesterday was "treat day." I figured all of our teachers were maxed out on B&BW lotions and candy (although I thought last year's candy gift was cute and clever) and sweets (see previous "Smart Cookie" gift). Anyway, we have some pretty incredible teachers so this year I thought I'd make each of them each dinner! I don't know if this is a weird gift or an awesome gift but if someone gifted me a night off of cooking I'd be pretty pumped. Anyway, I tripled my favorite Baked Spaghetti recipe which yielded 6 meals plus some leftovers for us one night.
five. I realize this was a heavy food post, but I have to share one more recipe I made earlier this week because it is so dang good and it's perfect for Cinco de Mayo tonight -- Sesame Beef Tacos with quick pickled veggies and spicy crema! 

Want to try HelloFresh? Use promo code MG8GKD for $40 off your first box! That means you can try out HelloFresh for $29 and then cancel after your box arrives or keep on going.

Also, I received another promo code to give my friends a FREE box of HelloFresh meals! I'd be happy to send the first THREE people to leave their email address in the comments a free week of HelloFresh to try!
