Thankfully, Maggie slept through most of the morning so I was able to get a lot of work done.

The afternoon may be more of a challenge since that’s when she wants to play. Hopefully, a few bathroom breaks outside will be enough to keep her busy!

My choices for lunch consisted of a few random bits of leftovers or boxed soup.

I chose the leftovers, mostly because I would have to throw them away if I didn’t use them.


It turned out great!


Kind of like huevos rancheros, but with rice instead of tortillas. Eggs + rice = one of my new favorite combos.

I heated up about 1/2 cup of brown rice and 1/4 cup or so of refried beans, topped those with some salsa and 2 over easy eggs that were cooked with salt, pepper, and way too much ancho chile powder! I was shaking it on, and this big pile of it jumped out of the jar. At least it’s spicy!


I also heated up some broccoli + green beans to have along side for more veggies and another color.


I’ve got to take a puppy out for a bathroom break and then it’s back to work for me.


*Holly made her goal!!! I’m so, so happy for her and thank you to all of you that donated to help build the well. I know it will be an amazing thing.

*I’m reading Proverbs this month with Polly – don’t you just love her? Her posts are like little rays of sunshine in my day.


and hey, hey – football tonight! A really good game, actually.

8:00 PM ET
No. 6 Boise State vs. No. 4 TCU*


I don’t know who to pick in that one – I’m guessing it will be a close game.


What’s your favorite Mexican dish?


  1. I never have Mexican around here but I love anything with beans or avocadoes so I’m sure I’d like mot of those dishes

  2. I need Mexican food right now. :-)

  3. I don’t really have a Mexican meal that I like but I do love salsa and guacamole — I add it salads and wraps all the time.

  4. The eggs in this post reminded me to make your “huevos rancheros” with the corn tortillas soon!!! gotta take advantage of my kitchen while i can !

    And I love how having a puppy is like having a BABY!!! At least Mags won’t talk back when she hits her teens ;)

  5. HUEVOS RANCHEROS! Hands down that is my favorite breakfast ever!

  6. I really like shrimp or chicken fajitas!

  7. Oh gosh, I could eat just about any mexican meal–it’s my absolute favorite cuisine. I’ve got a good black bean casserole on the menu this week, but I also really like sweet potato/black bean enchiladas. And you can’t beat a good tamale.

    I can’t believe that college football is almost over for the year–seems like it was just starting not too long ago. I’m going to pick TCU tonight though. Good game!

  8. mmm looks good. I love pretty much anything Mexican, especially if it has beans in it :)

  9. If I’m being healthy I love chicken fajitas.

    If I’m not bring on the flautas!

    Glad Maggie is doing well :-)

  10. I love veggie fajitas or taco bowls! :)

  11. Your eggs look delicious! Anything with guac is delicious in my opinion :-)

  12. thanks for all the love, support and help my dear brandi. i couldn’t have done it without ya!

    your lunch looks fab – eggs are so versatile, i forget you can use them in just about anything.

    happy day to you (and maggie!)!

  13. I love love love Mexican food! Unfortunately, I like the not good for you stuff like queso dip, enchiladas, etc.

  14. I love guacamole and good refried beans. Any meal with those 2 things is good :)

    Your puppy is already looking bigger!

  15. Looks so awesome! eggs with refried beans is sooo good. Great eats!

  16. Picking a fav Mexican dish is just.too.hard, lol!

    Your eggs look magnificent. I had the BEST huevos rancheros in Costa Rica last year!

  17. eggs and rice, eh? I’m intrigued…

  18. I like huevos rancheros that I make at home the best. But I really really love stuffed poblano peppers/chile relanos.

  19. i really enjoy rice and eggs though i usually have them with asian seasonings – have never thought of adding salsa!

  20. Before I was a vegetarian (and health concerned) I would get Taco Bell Chicken quesadillas every Sunday morning in college (good hangover cure). But now I love making a “Mexican fiesta salad”: spinach, black beans, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, and salsa as salad dressing :) Yummy!!

    I don’t know if you ever ate at El Guadalope’s (on main near Kroger) before it closed but I loved the El Guadalope special with enchiladas, rice, beans, and tacos-I would always eat too much!!

  21. Eggs and rice are a great combo–I especially love fried rice with eggs :)

    I’m a chicken fajita girl…and don’t forget the guac!

    I think I’m going to try and read Proverbs this month with you guys! One of my new year’s goals is to be consistent with my Bible study.

  22. Mmmm!! Fish tacos, quesodillas, fajitas. All of it. LOVE!

  23. Your rice and eggs looks so good. I am going to have to try that!

    Nachos are by far my favorite choice when it comes to mexican food. But, I usually go to healthy route and order a burrito bowl.
