Sweet December.

It came! It finally came! My Buttercup Yellow KitchenAid Stand Mixer has arrived all wrapped and ready for my birthday. I couldn't help but tear it open (early) so I can get to baking and making delicious things for the holidays! We've found the perfect home for it on our kitchen counter.

happy (early) birthday to me.

This evening, we ventured out to a local Mexican restaurant in town called Picante. It is yet another delicious organic, locally sourced, sustainable, slow food Berkeley restaurant that is so conveniently located on our very same street. They have amazing and uber quick service with delectable authentic Mexican food, it was a quick pick for our spontaneous Wednesday night date night and we loved it! We'll definitely be bringing out-of-town guests to this place. If you find yourself in Berkeley, I highly recommend mosying your way over to Picante and ordering yourself some of their homemade chips and salsa fresca and their Nortenos tamales with a side of Papaya aguas frecas (otherwise, order exactly what I had tonight). Your tastebuds will thank you!
