It was chilly today! No rain, thank goodness, but you can tell winter is coming.
Nick and I had to go to the post office at lunch to mail some stuff and you want to know what I did?!?
I felt so dumb.
I had 2 envelopes – one already had a stamp, and I needed to buy a stamp for the other.
Well, I dropped one in the “out of town” box without double checking, and I dropped in the letter without the stamp! Doh!
So…I had to ask the guy at the counter to get it out of the pile so I could buy a stamp for it…I’m sure he’s had that happen before, but still! I’m such a dork.
I snacked on some broccoli, celery and TJ’s garlic hummus this afternoon while working.
This garlic hummus is so good! Super, super garlicky, and I don’t care if I can’t really talk to anyone after eating it. It’s that good.
And dinner tonight was a new recipe!
I saw this recipe in a Rachael Ray magazine at my parents’ house this weekend, and it went right on the menu plan!
I ended up making a few changes, but it still turned out great. And it was easy and quick, which are my favorite things for weeknight dinners.
- I used leftover rotisserie chicken instead of cooking it tonight
- 1 only used 1/2 cup part skim ricotta + 3/4 cup TJ’s Green Salsa
- I forgot the red onion!
- 5 corn tortillas instead of 4 flour
- I only used about 1.5 – 2 oz. of a pepper jack cheese that grated over the top
This was tasty – I’m liking all the tortillas we’re having this week ;) The TJ’s green salsa is just a little bit spicy, and it went perfectly with the ricotta, tortillas, and spinach.
Our side dish was just a mixture of frozen peppers + onions, corn, and black beans with some garlic, salt, and scallions.
Also from TJ’s :)
I bought these cookies the last time I went to Trader Joe’s, and we never even got to bring them home. We opened them at my parent’s house, shared with everyone, and I only got 1.5 cookies!
This time…we waited to open them until we got home. Sneaky.
And, as I’m eating my 2 cookies, there’s only 1 left which Nick just ate. I’m glad I grabbed my 2 when I did! He is a cookie monster, so I have to make sure I grab what I want, or I’ll miss out :)
I think I’m going to paint my nails tonight…that didn’t happen last night and my lunch is already packed.
