We’ve had quite the cold snap this week! I’ve been thankful for central heat and throw blankets and decaf coffee and soup and as well as:
1. Baked Chicken Chimichangas. I almost always order Chicken Chimichangas at Mexican food restaurants, but the one closest to us has kind of gone downhill, so we don’t go there any more. I was craving chimichangas, and the frozen ones just aren’t the same. I started looking up recipes for homemade ones and found one for baked ones – easier and healthier than fried. I added queso sauce across the top – probably not so healthy, but they always come that way in restaurants, and I love it. 🙂 They turned out pretty well, I thought.
3. The Amazon cloud app. I didn’t know that Amazon would automatically put some music purchases in their “cloud” that you can then listen to on your computer or iPhone. So when I got the app for my phone, I discovered that several other former purchases were already in the “cloud” – and I didn’t have to figure out out to get them there. Cool! I’ve been enjoying the Forte CD already and I haven’t even got it yet! (I know I could just download it, but sometimes I like getting the actual CD and reading the stuff inside the case.
4. Getting pictures up in my hallway. That has only been on my to-do list for over 3 years now. 😳 My excuse is that I wanted to reframe some and maybe print out some others and took a long time to figure out what I wanted up there. I had one side of the wall done but on the other side wanted to do a grouping for each of the three boys. Feels nice to have gotten that done.
5. Take-out from Red Lobster that my dear hubby brought home from work Thursday night. Mmmm!!! Jesse has an evening class on Thursdays so sometimes that’s kind of an at-home date night for my husband and me.
