Hatch Chiles are everywhere right now. If you’ve been to your grocery store lately, you’ve probably seen a big bin of them somewhere. If you haven’t, I promise they’re on their way! Your local grocer may even have a Hatch Chile Roasting event, where they’ll have roasters in the front, roasting these puppies for you! They span all heat levels, though the mild seems to be the most popular, and let me tell you – they are delicious. I even have a super special giveaway today, so you’ll want to keep reading!
I listen to Sirius XM Liquid Metal every chance I get, and lately Jose Mangin has been talking up Crobot something fierce.

A couple weekends ago, I went on a girls excursion to Las Vegas to dance, lounge poolside, and drink fabulous cocktails. When I got there, I was greeted with a cocktail which was a creation of one of my dear friends who was a former mixologist (well current too, I suppose!), and it was AMAZING!
Tomorrow is August 1st, y’all! Historically some cultures would celebrate the time around August 1st, as it was the halfway point between the Summer Solstice and the Autumnal Equinox. If you’re in the mood to do a little seasonal celebrating, head down to San Diego!
This past week, I did just that. My weekdays are pretty packed with work, so when it comes time for the weekend, I try to pack in as much fun as I can. I feel like I’m finally getting into a groove with posting regularly here, that it was time to stretch the legs and let loose.
