What I Ate: A five-course meal at Gwendolyn and too many Peeps

by

Another busy week of eating is in the books. I somehow survived two Hot Joy visits, a five-course dinner at Gwendolyn and way too many Easter sweets. I also managed a visit to Fiesta Arts Fair at the Southwest School of Art where I found no gorditas! Blasphemy!  Follow me on Instagram for food adventures: @JessElizarraras.

No gorditas at Fiesta Arts Fair means paletas and chocolate-covered bacon on a stick.
