Food memories are some of the strongest. When I smell onions being caramelized with peppers in olive oil I’m immediately transported to when my parents would make fajitas.

So here it is.

Happy Sunday everyone!
Can ya’ll believe that Easter is exactly one week from today?
I honestly can’t, it’s sneaking up on me. I’m used to it being in April close to my birthday, this whole Easter being in March is throwing me off.
I’m excited though.
