Quick post today! The Magician did something he never does last night-- he woke up in the middle of the night and STAYED UP. All he wanted to do was party from about 3 a.m. until, oh, 5. Guess who he was partying with? Yeah. So I opted out of making dinner tonight and instead let Josh try his hand at a dip, and this is what he made:
Several layer dip. Mmmm. Layers. There's a layer of refried beans, a layer of guac, and a layer of tomatillo salsa. And olives on top. Not just any olives! Check these bad boys out:
They are chipotle stuffed olives. SERIOUSLY. I was skeptical that they'd work here, but they're perfect. (And they look pretty cute in J's plating, which I had no hand in, guys.) Smoky yummy good.
The whole thing was crazy good. I'm not just saying that because all I ate the rest of the day was coffee and toast. (Well, I don't think that's why.) We had it with breakfast radishes, carrots, cauliflower, and tortilla chips. Yummm.
The Emperor loved it-- he ate the salsa AND the beans and either didn't notice or didn't care that the olives were pretty spicy. That's thrilling to me. Also thrilling: he was just in a great mood today. Here he is showing off the two tiny pigtails he had in his hair today (thanks, preschool):
And here's his brother pulling his innocent sleeping baby act... uh huh, you're not fooling anyone guy!
