It’s Monday. My favorite days of summer, because at this point everybody is dreading the work week, and I am just in the beginning of a summer vacation week.
I made the most delicious lunch on a whim today. I made a quesadilla with leftover “shake n bake” chicken cut into bits, black beans, sharp cheddar cheese, leftover chipotle tomato salsa, and a dab of sour cream. On the side I tried something I’ve been wanting to try for a while: Mixed Greens with goat cheese, honey, and a dab of oil and vinegar. It was DELICIOUS. And I added something new I bought this week: Honey Vanilla Goat Cheese. Seriously, I liked this way more than I thought I would.
Here’s a picture of my partially eaten quesadilla. (I like to pronounce the second half of the word quesadilla phonetically.)
I was reading my gossip blogs yesterday and I came across a few claiming that Alex Petyfer (from Magic Mike) is kind of a jerk. This satisfied me. I can’t explain why, but I am thinking it is the same part of me, the blurred boundary between reality and film/television, that gets excited when a couple in a movie becomes a couple in real life. ( Exception to the rule, because every rule has an exception: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. ) Since he was a jerk in the film, I was happy to find out that the same is true in real life.
Here are some things I plan to make for dinner this week unless something comes up, like somebody wanting to take me out to dinner: (HA HA)
Monday: Apple Chicken Sausage with Gouda, Green Beans, Sweet Potato Fries
Tuesday: Chicken Taco Pasta (New Recipe), Salad
Wednesday: Taco Salad
Thursday: Homemade Pizzas
Friday: Hopefully my honey will take me OUT!
Saturday: We are going to a BBQ.
I’ll leave you with a picture of my adorable niece – Ava. I can’t believe she is going into 1st grade. She is one of the most special people I know. She really knows how to make you feel loved. She is such a kind person, and a really good friend when she plays with others.
my girl. <3
Enjoy your Monday!
