Girls Night! Taco Party & Strawberry Shortcakes!

It dawned on me that I forgot to post pictures of last week’s girl night!

Let’s start with dessert first!!

I sliced up some fresh strawberries…

prep station

I put them in a bowl with a tablespoon of sugar and a heaping tablespoon or two of thick aged balsamic vinegar…

(let that sit for at least 30 minutes)

I made us some whipped cream…baked a vanilla bean cake from Trader Joe’s and assembled the strawberry shortcakes…

and then we brought them to my living room and watched movies…..

I brought the extra whipped cream in because YOU KNOW I’m not letting that go to waste!

Prior to all this….I made us tacos for dinner!

Here’s the spread:

I like to fry up flour & corn tortillas instead of buying store bought ones. My mom taught me this long long ago!
