I got nothin'. It's all a bunch of Cliff bars.
The week started on a solid note with the fried rice that I made last weekend, once it was gone I scrounged in the fridge for leftovers.
Monday: leftover soup from Sunday.
Tuesday: the usual circus of me not being able to get away from work and the boys having a nighttime activity...hubs stepped up and fed us.
Wednesday: hubs made us a chicken, rice, and brocoli casserole that everyone in the family likes. Except that he and the boys prefer the broccoli on the side and I like everything mixed together.
Thursday: it was just the adults for dinner that night and I actually found food for us. Hubs had a chicken burrito (which I'd thrown together with leftovers from the last time we had grilled chicken...just add rice, Trader Joe's pepper and onion mix, and cheese). I made a spontaneous quesadilla of refried beans, cheese, and the pepper and onion mix. We had a ripe avocado so we treated ourselves to some spontaneous guacamole.
Friday: out on the town to the drive in hamburger place (seriously, if you own a drive in restaurant 2020 is your year).
Saturday: pre-half mararthon pizza.
Sunday: family dinner...of post half-marathon Chipotle which was about all that I could get my head around. The stepkids did not hate this meal.
I Tried It
I like the concept of Pumpkin beer, but I've never found one that I liked. Sorry but beer and cinnamon do not mix IMO. A friend that I trust has been raving about Southern Tier Pumking for years, but I've never seen it out anywhere and didn't want to pony up for a six pack up front since I wasn't sure if I'd like it. Trader Joe's had it the last time I was there so I was finally able to get just one bottle and...my friend is right, it's good stuff.
A Blog Milestone
Hey congrats lil' blog! Nine and a half years later we're at 100k page views.
Oooh I found a show on Netflix of all places. I can't find a trailer for it, but Strong is a reality show where 10 average women pair up with 10 trainers and get ripped. I wish the show focused more on the day to day process and less on the competition, but this is holding my attention for sure.
I finished Silver Sparrow by Tayari Jones. I was perfectly happy to take it slow until the second half of the book and then oooh things started happening and I could not put it down. So yes it was a good one. Next up Mexican Gothic, which has a lot of hype on it, and having read the first few chapters, my gut feeling is that the hype is justified. I'll keep you posted.
