Allll the tacos.

Homemade bánh mì, made with the chicken from a slow cooker Vietnamese chicken and bok choy recipe that I make often. So good! Oh, and that home-grown cilantro is 👌.

and then eating it for weeks and weeks once we get back home. 😀

I was a 90s kid. So, obviously, I was totally obsessed with everything Lisa Frank. (And I do mean everything.) Which is why I’m really, really hoping somebody will get me this Lisa Frank adult coloring book for my birthday in a few months. Pretty please? 😉
