We are yet another day closer to Christmas! The time is flying by as it always does and I am doing my best to soak in all I can of the celebration of Christmas around me. That means Christmas music at every chance, Christmas lights on, Christmas-scented candles, cookie making, etc.!! 🙂
This weekend was productive yet low-key. It started with date night at Lago Tacos in Excelsior, MN. It is a fairly small establishment full of so much coziness. The lights were dim, the room was perfectly warm, and they had holiday decorations up to add even further to the warm ambiance.
Dana and I started dinner with an order of fried avocados #allinmoderation #yolo. OH.MY. There is a reason they earned the title spot for this post. These babies were incredible. You start with a cool and creamy avocado (you can’t go wrong there), then you roll it in a light batter with just a hint of salt, fry it up until golden brown, and serve it with some type of cool sauce with just a hit of spice. They created a home run with this one that’s for sure.
I actually practiced decent self-control and stopped after two slices; I had a huge platter of tacos still coming my way!
The tacos come in an order of three so I decided to mix and match so that I could try three different tacos. I chose the garden, the grilled chicken, and the carnitas taco.
I honestly think these were the best tacos I’ve ever eaten. My favorite out of the three was surprisingly the carnitas one although I loved them all.
I thoroughly enjoyed date night with my man (and had to model my new sweater from my mom and dad). 😉
On Saturday we ran what seemed like a kajillion errands including a trip to Caribou for a Northern Lite Turtle Mocha (my current favorite) and purchasing a new vehicle for Dana!
In the evening we made our way to Dana’s parents for dinner and some Christmas cookie baking! My first Christmas cookies of the season, followed by more cookie making this week with mom!
Sunday we cleaned the house, got some groceries, ran some more errands, and finally whipped together dinner.
I made a Parmesan Broiled Tilapia recipe that I found on the one, the only, Pinterest.
It turned out well, but I still had to have some cocktail sauce on the side. I love my ketchup!
I am hoping and praying for a great week. Enjoy the holiday cheer around you my friends!

It’s a new used car. His old one was just falling apart, the air conditioning has been broken for three years, and the heat is give or take. It was time for a new vehicle!
That sweater is SO cute! Your parents have good taste! 😉 And YOU have good taste for ordering fried avocado. I feel like I definitely need some of that in my life.

Fried avocados?! Must try! And super cute sweater!
A few years ago, my boyfriend took me to a fancy vegetarian place for my birthday, and we had fried avocado as an appetizer. So. Freaking Delicious. I mean, avocado is amazing by itself, but fried avocado is almost too good to be true. Glad you got to experience it.
