I thought FH was having a little snooze so I came upstairs to kill some time on my computer…thinking I’d go back down at 9pm and relax on the couch. Only now I just realized I totally forgot to blog while sitting here.  Duh.

I did, however, clear about 250 things from my Google Reader so I’m pretty pleased about that.  Anyone that I haven’t been keeping up with daily I decided to just read anything they’ve posted in January and marked the rest as read.  There are just so many of you to keep up with!!

After picking FH from work this afternoon I snacked on a tangerine while plodding through work…


Lotsa seeds but super juicy and sweet.


FH had to start fasting at 6pm (ewwwwwwwwwww!) for some blood work he is having done in the morning so I suggested he make whatever he wanted for dinner because chances of me being ready to eat by then were very slim.  I was right…I think I went down around 6:30.

<haha…I was just distracted by my cat chasing his own tail…dufus>

I knew exactly what to make for my supper…Guiltless Gourmet Burrito!  Ole! 


Along with it I made a Mexicali-inspired salad


In the big silver bowl tonight

  • baby spinach
  • yellow pepper
  • tomatoes
  • green onions
  • avocado
  • light cheddar cheese


Dressed with salsa, light sour cream, salt, pepper, and a squeeze of fresh lime.

Hint:  I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again.  Grate your cheese on the small side of your grater.  This is barely 1/2 oz and look how far it goes!


This meal was huge!  I’m stuffed.

OK, not too stuffed for a “Brookie”.


I had to laugh because all of the comments last night were about the damn Brookies.  haha.  People, there was a lovely section about beautiful handmade dishes in there!  Note to self:  don’t post dessert when attention wanted elsewhere.  LOL.

Anyway, it’s been a long day and I think I hear the kettle calling my name.  Tea time!  Nighty night!

Where did you find the Guiltless Gourmet burrito? This is the answer to my prayers. My Husband always keeps frozen burritos in the freezer and I have to fight myself not to eat one.

What's the NI on the burrito?

The dish was very nice last night!! Gifts for the kitchen/house are always fun in my opinion!

I maintain... avocado turns a taco salad into something orgasmic!

Kim said...

haha... after I commented on your Brookie post I thought "I should have mentioned the dishes!" That's funny.

Jen said...

I TOTALLY didn't realize that the dishes were the I was like "Okay, so what was the gift???" - I totally get it now! That is a fabulous gift!! And it really enhances your food porniness!

*side note - I AM drooling over your dinner though as well....

Guilty as charged! *ahem* Nice Dishes Jaime. Really, they're very nice. They would look extra beautiful with some brookies on them. :)

Mora: I find those GG burritos in any grocery store...usually Natural Food section...right next to the Amy's frozen stuff.

Can't remember the NI...the packaging went out with the trash...but not tooo shabby.
