fiesta para padre

Brooke and I made my dad dinner for father’s day to thank him for helping us move, unclogging our bathtub, loaning us his truck for a music festival, driving us to and from said festival, weed-eating our entire yard, buying us gatorade, and other general dad amazingness that has kept us incredibly spoiled the past couple months. Enchiladas are his favorite food, so naturally we made the event a fiesta!

I rode my bike to a little Mexican market on School Ave. called El Amanecer Market to get what we needed. They had everything from fresh produce to sweetened condensed milk and finishing touches like sugary sodas and a loteria game to give to my dad and play!

In addition to enchiladas, I made tres leches cake and mexican chocolate pudding. It was a filling feast and our first time entertaining in our new home!

My most recent favorite dad moment was walking up to meet my parents when they picked us up from Wakarusa. The smile on my dad’s face was so genuine. I just love him!
