Things that totally suck…. making a delicious and healthy chicken dinner, having enough for leftovers and leaving the chicken in the leftover container on the counter overnight. ..
Earlier last week I made How Sweets Slow Cooker Sugar and Roasted Garlic Pulled Beef. We had a lot of leftover beef after we ate dinner and had our lunches so I thought we would make tacos to use up the beef. Joel wanted to try his hand at making homemade corn tortillas, so yesterday we made tacos.
I added cumin, chili powder and Tapatio hot sauce with some sauteed onions to the beef, added chicken stock (I didn’t have any beef) to re-hydrate the beef. I also made the slaw from How Sweet Short Rib Tacos. Topped our tacos with some feta and it was such a great dinner!
This weekend was very low key. Joel worked till 8 Friday night and I worked from home till about 7. We ended up ordering pizza because we didn’t feel like cooking. We just hung out at the apartment and caught up on our DVR.
Saturday, we got up had breakfast with my parents before meeting Joel’s parents at our venue. Neither parental units had seen the space before we booked it. I am so glad they both liked it! After seeing the venue, Joel and I headed out to Rockwall with his parents to see his sister. Lots of wedding talk…
Sunday we just hung out at home and watched football.
Life has been super crazy lately. Joel and I are both entering our busy season at work so we’ve been working some late nights. We are currently in our hiatus period of wedding planning. Since we booked the venue before our deadline (12/31/14), we’re really done until next year. Being able to have these hiatus periods is one of the reasons we wanted to not have our wedding in the spring of 2015. We didn’t want to be rushed to get so many things done, especially trying to plan the wedding and get through our busy time at work.
Joel and I have been doing C25k and it’s been fun to run. We weren’t able to get as much running in last week but I’ve been trying to fill the days we don’t run with yoga. I’m really missing Bikram but don’t have an idea of when I’ll get to start it back up.
What are you guys reading these days? I finally finished The Children of King Henry VIII, which took way longer than it should have. I have another Allison Weir book on Queen Elizabeth I but I would like to take a little break from History.
You guys after seeing the Ray Rice video (I hadn’t seen it until this morning) I HAD to drop him from my fantasy football team. I didn’t realize he was suspended and why until after he was already on my team. I seriously can’t believe he only got 2 game suspension. Wes Welker and Matt Prater were suspended for more for drugs/alcohol.
