My week of graveyard shifts ended yesterday morning, and after a quick nap, I was back on mommy duty. But instead of settling back into our normal routine, we had to scramble to get our bags packed for Hawaii — something we always leave for the last possible minute. I know: First world problems.
Bright and early this morning, we met up with Sidney, Jory, and Little M at the airport, boarded a flight to Kauai, and…
…hit the local Costco as soon as we landed. Supplies are of critical importance, folks.
We lugged everything back to the house, and spent the rest of the afternoon splashing in the pool and soaking in the hot tub until the exhausted kiddos (and their parents) were ready to pass out.
Having slept just a handful of hours over the past 48 hours, I’m genuinely bushed. So for Day 17, let’s stick with a quick, no-cook recipe that evokes tropical paradise: Spicy Pineapple Salsa.
The fiery kick of jalapeño perfectly complements the sweetness of the fresh island pineapple. Spend just ten minutes in the kitchen, and you’ll have a bright, crisp salsa that lends sweet, tangy, spicy bursts of flavor to everything.
Try it. On everything.
