Happy Humpday afternoon – thank goodness this week is half way over, right? Despite my not-so-early wake up call, I got to work on time.

I’m getting really excited about this coming weekend – we’re going to visit my family and it will be good to be there for a few days.

You are never going to believe what I did today. Well, maybe you will, but I can’t believe I did it again.

I left my poor, forgotten lettuce at home AGAIN. Seriously – 2 days in a row? It’s a good thing I like this combination with or without the lettuce.

I had the same lettuce-less salad I had yesterday: corn, tomato, avocado. So creamy and sweet!


Plus a refried bean/cheese wrap with hot sauce.


And the last few chicken pieces from our fajitas this weekend – spicy! I think those chipotles in adobo are the BEST things you can add to fajita fillings. So smoky and good.


Sorry for the repeat lunch – I’m trying to use up some stuff in the fridge before we leave this weekend.

My fruit changed today – that’s exciting, right?


Make sure to go see Sarah for a nutty giveaway – just don’t enter  :)

Speaking of Sarah, she gave me the sweetest award the other day.


This award has the most touching description:

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and to be friends. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.

Thanks so much, Sarah!

I can honestly say I have met some awesome people through this crazy food blogging, and I am so excited to get to know all of you more and hopefully meet more of you in person!

Part of this honorable award is that I need to give it to 8 people, as well, so here we go! With great power comes great responsibility, right?  :)

Thank you ALL for everything you do and share with everyone else! It makes me want to be a better blogger (what a mouthful!), and I enjoy reading yours (and so many other) blogs each day.
Any fun weekend / Easter plans?

I’m about to read some more of my book before lunch hour is over –
