Five on Friday/#backthatazzup

Happy Friday Friends! I can't believe my birthday week is almost over! This week I've clearly decided calories don't count.

1. I celebrated my family birthday dinner with my favorite food. Mexican!!!

Frozen Margarita with extra salt! Yum Yum Yum 

2. Happy Birthday to Meeee! I wish y'all could taste this delicious hummingbird cake my mom baked me. It's probably my favorite birthday cake I've ever had. Hummingbird cake is a southern favorite similar to banana nut cake but with the addition of pineapple. This one had a vanilla pudding custard between each of three layers and was covered in a brown butter frosting.

3. Have you ever ordered a daiquiri from a drive through? If not, you are seriously missing out. One of my favorite parts of being legally able to drink is getting one of these delicious treats when visiting NOLA. This amaretto pineapple one was just as perfect as you can imagine, maybe better

4. I tried out this Mac&cheese in a mug recipe for dinner last night. It was pretty simple and okay, but nothing special. You take 1/3 cup of uncooked pasta and microwave it with 1/3 cup + 1/4 cup water for 6 minutes stirring every 2 minutes. Add 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese, stir and heat for 30 seconds. Add a splash of milk. It was pretty bland so next time I will be adding lots of salt and pepper and hopefully it'll taste better. 

5. What better song to cap off my week of never ending calories
