A few months ago, my family and I were staying near Minneapolis for the weekend. We were on the hunt for a delicious and unique restaurant when we stumbled across Chimborazo.

Chimborazo is one of those small, hole in the wall restaurants with the best food you'll ever try in your life. The night we visited I had the Encocado, which was mahi mahi in coconut sauce.

It's been feeling a lot like spring these last few days in MN!

Temps in the 40's and 50's and snow melting everywhere. Weather like this makes me feel like making salads and thinking about picnics and barbecues!

Those won't be happening anytime soon though, as we're scheduled for some more snow next week!
