#3. Never turn down an open bar. Seek them out and make them a priority. Indulging in open bars when you’re older isn’t appropriate because a) people will think you have an alcohol problem and b) you’re supposed to have enough money to afford your own alcohol.
#4. If you’re unhappy and someone offers you a way out, take it. You don’t owe your first job years of loyalty and your first-born; you don’t have to stay in your city just because you’re on a first-name basis with the bodega guy. Do what feels right; the initial fear will give way to excitement.

1. Heat 1-1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and saute onions and peppers until somewhat soft. Season with the cumin and salt and pepper. Add in corn and saute for a few minutes.
2. Add in stock and black beans and continue cooking until it's nice and hot!
3. Serve with tortilla chips (we crushed ours up), cilantro and cheese on top....enjoy!

I had recently found a recipe for portobello mushroom pizza that was just we were in the mood for and probably a better option than real pizza and it didn't look too complicated, which is always good in my book. I think that this is one of those dishes that you really can add your own twist to it depending on what you have in the fridge or what you like to have on your "pizza"....

- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Chop sweet potatoes. Once the oven reaches 400, place sweet potatoes on a pan and bake for 30 mins the oven.
- Chop red onion. Mix 1 cup shredded cheese, red onion, black beans in a large mixing bowl. Add sweet potatoes to this mixture once they are cooked.
- In separate mixing bowl, mix enchilada sauce with 2 tablespoons of the sauce from the adobo chipotle peppers. Feel free to cut up a few of these peppers and put them into the sweet potato, black bean and red onion mix for even more of a smoky flavoring!
- Pour some enchilada sauce to coat the bottom your pan. Put one layer of corn tortillas on top, then add first layer of sweet potato mixture.
- Add next layer of tortillas and lightly coat with enchilada mix; add sweet potato mixture. Repeat this until you have filled your pan, finishing with a tortilla layer on top.
- Spread generous amount of enchilada sauce on your final layer of tortillas and top with remaining cheese.
- Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes…top with crema sauce if you’d like or just dig in!

We had a lot of fun listening (and dancing) to the polka music, playing cards and eating tasty German fare! As far as my own German heritage goes, I've been told that my grandmother's maiden name, Bocker, means "beer maker" which is pretty great!
Hope your weekend was fun & the week has started off well...Provst!
