Fritos and Taco Meat

Since I was just grocery shopping mainly for me this week, I relied on my freezer yesterday for breakfast.  We have two refrigerators with freezers.  The downstairs fridge is usually “my” fridge for the bulky stuff like romaine lettuce, bags of tomatoes for salsa, etc.  But I forget that I put shit in the freezer all the time down there.   Sometimes six months goes by without me even taking a peek into it!  But over the weekend I remembered that I had chorizo breakfast tacos in there!  And I did a quick inventory and put a piece of paper on the outside of the freezer to remind myself what’s in there. After I crisp them up in the toaster oven, I add fresh spinach and tons of hot sauce. Open-mouthed smile

It was a gorgeous day yesterday.  Partly cloudy, blue skies, temps about 78 degrees.  I decided to skip the gym and get my walk in.  I kept texting pictures to my twin sister who works downtown now!  This is a 7 mile bike/walking trail about a 2 minute drive from my office.  I like walking here because I don’t have to worry about getting hit by a car!

I got 3 miles in at lunch – nice!  Alright, this lunch is going to look like dog food, but it tasted much better than it looked!  I ended up having reheated skinny mac n cheese with the second half of my pork chop, some balsamic cucumbers and fruit.  And everything is better with sriracha, am I right?!

So I was talking to Tony in the afternoon, and he said to me “You know what I have a taste for?  Fritos.”  Then we continued talking and he decided he wanted Fritos and taco meat.  What?  This coming from a man who normally eats some yogurt and fresh fruit before I come home, and maybe eat a few bites of whatever I make for dinner.  If he would have asked for a whole lobster I would have made that! 

And it worked out perfectly because I did have tacos on the menu, and a childhood friend of mine that I am friends on Facebook with now, knows how much I like spicy shit, so he sent me some hot peppers from his garden!  How nice was that?  I diced up half of the peppers on the left, and after adding them to my nachos, my face was sweaty for a while.  Perfect!

Tony’s plate:  He ate every bite!  There is about 1/3 of a cup of taco meat, lettuce, tomato, some cheese and Fritos.

My plate had 1/3 cup taco meat, 1/3 cup white beans, Romaine, tomatoes and cheese – and the super delicious and spicy peppers. 

I ended up giving my knee one more night to rest – I am taking Helen’s advice and ditching the squats for now.   My knee feels 95% better today, so I’ll get back at the Insanity tonight after dinner.  I still got my steps in though, even though I forgot to put it back on after changing my clothes!

I have no idea what I am making for breakfast or lunch today – should be interesting!  And for once in a long while, I actually have 40 minutes before I have to leave for work.  Plenty of time to power wash the deck before work – ha!

Make it a great day!
