Happy Hump Day! Aren’t long weekends great? Having an extra day or two to relax and unwind is a wonderful thing. But long weekends are a gift that keeps on giving: a short work week before or after.
But after two short weeks of work, the last two days in my office have had me feeling wiped out by 3:30. All I wanted to do when I came home today was take a nap. After my 15 minute power nap on the couch, I was still pretty drained so I was happy to see that the meal we had planned for tonight was actually pretty speedy.
Me, as we sit down at the coffee table to eat: “Wow, this is going to be soo good.”
Mike: “Yeah, where’d you get this recipe?”
Me: “Where do you think?”
Mike: “How Sweet It Is?”
Me: “Uh, huh.”
[I get most of my recipes here so this is no surprise. Like the sangria and cookies I made for NYE, the fish sticks we had for dinner earlier this week, and the crockpot recipe we'll have tomorrow or Friday.]
Me: “Don’t you love Jessica?”
Mike: “Yeah, is she single?”
What?! Isn’t my referencing her blog and bringing her delicious recipes into your life enough? I mean, I know she has a good sense of humor but come on!
So anyway, this is what we had for dinner:
These were really good, though I think I’d have much more to say if I hadn’t literally inhaled my first one. Yeah, I kind of felt overwhelmed after that.
After Mike wolfed down his tacos in like four bites: “Mmm, yeah, that’s a keeper. I’d definitely have that again. That would be good in the summer too.”
Remember when I told you to make “try one of Jessica’s recipes” one of your new year’s resolutions? Yeah, I meant that. Have you?
For dessert, we shared a Karen’s Birthday cupcake from Baked and Wired that I picked up on a lunch walk with my friend Allie.
And, I just put in the last 5 loads of laundry from our bed bug situation. Good. Day.
