Recipe for a Celebration

One of the benefits of a rescheduled birthday weekend is that you get to spread out the fun.  I moved lunch with girlfriends to last weekend and rescheduled my massage for after the marathon.  My 30th birthday dinner was rescheduled last night at a phenomenal restaurant in Oak Park, IL called Maya Del Sol.  I had never been to Maya, but I have been wanting to try it for awhile.  An intimate group of family and close friends got together for chips and salsa, mojitos and sangria and unique Latin-inspired entrees.  We sat and chatted for hours enjoying our own private room.  I had so much fun I almost forgot to take pictures!  The evening turned out so well that I thought I’d share the recipe with you.
