Celebration Food

Jake got a job offer on Monday! (He got another one on Wednesday, too!) We decided to celebrate with fish tacos. Food of champions.

Jake fried the fish on the porch, using his camp stove and secret family recipe for batter.

I made a red cabbage slaw, guacamole and this southwestern quinoa with a few modifications.

I a added a red bell pepper and cumin/chile pepper instead of taco seasoning. Very good and really filling.

I made a ton of quinoa; we'll be having leftovers for ages.

How do you celebrate events or special occasions? Is food involved? Is it the focus? For me, food is always involved, and sometimes the focus. Have a good Thursday! The weekend is almost here!
