Indulgence.

Posted on

One side of the bar at Holland House.

This is a drink I recreated. It has gin, st. germain, strawberries, mint, and lemon juice. EXTREMELY refreshing.

White Chocolate Bread Pudding. After this post, I should be done posting my back log of sinful pictures. I’ve been eating clean and I feel so great about it that even seeing pictures like this don’t make me want sugar…well, not enough to go eat something sweet anyways!

Right after I got back from Tampa, my friend Annie and I used the 60 ounce margarita glass to make a giant sangria. Peaches and oranges soaked in rum, white wine, and diet seven up. I absolutely love the shirt Annie has on here!

This past weekend, on the 15th, we had a Quinceanera for Kayla (in the red). She was 23, don’t worry guys, haha. It was just a fun theme. This is the dress she chose to wear. It’s pretty perfect, don’t you think? Next to Kayla is Sloane.

The birthday girl requested red velvet cake. I made a sheet cake, a 9 inch round cake, and a dozen cupcakes. The icing I used was white chocolate cream cheese.

Check out the alcohol we had BEFORE guests arrived with their own. This is serious preparation guys. Besides alcohol I brought a huge thing of spicy hummus and i chopped up lots of raw cucumbers, zucchini and yellow squash for dipping.

Before Kayla’s party, my beautiful friend Sloane, who just had her baby came over. Okay, I’ll take this opportunity to show off her new baby briefly. Little Loreli (calling her Eli!) is so gorgeous. She’s a month old now.

So Sloane got out of her house to hang out with friends for the first time since she had Eli. Before going to Kayla’s birthday party, we had to get her an adult beverage. I had my usual bourbon and hefeweizen, and Sloane started off with a shot of tequila (1800) and corona with lime. This was the beginning of tequila and corona day. HA!

And I’ll close with one more cute kid picture, of my niece Kylie. She’s going to be a handful, I can already tell.

From here on out…clean eating and Happy Herbivore tester pictures will be posted. ๐Ÿ™‚

About laceythevegan

I'm a reader, a food lover, a crazy cat lady, an animal lover, local shopper and local music supporter. You can find me in East Nashville most of the time, shopping, having a drink at a locally owned bar, or eating food at a local restaurant. I like cumin and smoked paprika way more than I should, winter squashes make me happy, and while I do like most fruits, I only *love* berries and mangoes. I'd rather have salty snacks than sweets, and the darker chocolate is, the better. I still think Earth Balance is the best fake butter, Vegenaise is the best vegan mayo, and Almond Milk tastes better than soy milk. Chia seeds are my favorite egg substitute for the most part, and pumpkin tends to bind better than applesauce-especially in chocolate goods. I know a lot about food and nutrition, but that doesn't mean I'm the healthiest person. I tend to avoid eating out because I know I can make food that tastes better at home.

  2. Your pals are totally adorable. Looking forward to the HH tester recipes! I’m doing sugar-free til September 30 with my best girlfriend: http://cracktheplates.com/2012/08/real-talk-you-me-sugar-free/ Last time I went sugar free (all of May and most of June) I lost weight and felt amazing. The good thing is, after the first few days of being without, I don’t miss it anymore – the cravings disappear! Luck to you and your fabulous friends. ๐Ÿ™‚
