You haven't had calamari until you've had @georgeandmarthas buffalo calamari.
If you don't post chocolates, something heart shaped, or flowers, did #valentinesday2018 even happen? I think not, so here I am to make it #igofficial with a box of chocolates. We aren't doing anything big today, we celebrate every day. I did order my wedding dress yesterday which is pretty exciting. Other than that it's a regular Wednesday with a little more chocolate than usual. What are your vday plans?
I made it 5 minutes of being awake before I almost screwed up the #fastday since today is #ashwednesday. I went to grab leftover chicken and rice to heat up, then remembered #nomeat today! Instead I grabbed some @bacalao cfe and made a bacala salad. Much healthier than my original idea and probably more filling. In hindsight I should have given up meat for #lent instead of Facebook to make remembering fast days easier. What did everyone else give up?
I really am over here eating all the foods enjoying Mardi Gras at home, and take it as a sign I managed to catch this avocado at the impossibly perfect ripe moment. Not that I'm giving up food for lent, aside from the fasting days. I'm giving up Facebook, and possibly smoking. I make no promises with the smoking one though. What are you giving up?
How is it already #mardigras2018 and I'm so not prepared. #shrivetuesday should involve pancakes but, cupcakes are more fun. Especially when made with @smalltownbrewery #notyourfathersrootbeer. Steve loves root beer, and beer, so this seemed like a no brainer to make for tonight before lent.
My empanada is not as pretty as the one from Don Pablos, but it's bigger and healthier since it's baked not fried. As much as I'm eating you would think I'm giving up food, not Facebook, when lent begins this week!
Why does my fried ice cream have two spoons? That just encourages my fiance to share and at no point did I say I was sharing my fried ice cream, because I'm not. I really need to work on a way to make this at home, since it's basically the real reason I go to tex-mex restaurants.
No, no, order something way smaller than me so I look like the greedy fat ass. The matador is like a mini version of the conquistador I ordered. Not that either of us ate much of it since we were full already.
Gluttony is a sin. I'm going down for this meal. The Conquistador. Empanada, enchilada, hard taco, soft taco, flautas... after the appetizers I ate half of a enchilada and tapped out 😆
Seriously next time I go out I'm only ordering appetizers and dessert. That's all I ever have room for by the time I'm done. I honestly wasn't a fan of these bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers. They weren't spicy at all, but I had the nachos to munch on so let Steve have at the poppers alone.
I can pretty much guarantee once we get through all the appetizers we won't be hungry for actual food. Happens all the time. I should just order apps and dessert and get the main course to go 😂
Years ago, probably a decade ago, I worked at @chevysfreshmex before the one closed near me. Ever since, whenever I go into a similar restaurant I become a food critic and compare all the ways Chevys was better. Like "chips always hot, salsa always cold" when here we have cold chips and warm salsa 😭 I ate them anyway but...
I'm getting real tired of being the last to know things. Today is #nationalpizzaday and I just found out. I made Mexican pizza to celebrate, since I do not have the supplies on hand for Italian pizza at the moment. Someone needs to email me a warning before national sushi day so I'm ready!
I do not know what is going on with me. Wednesday night I slept 12 hours, and last night I slept almost 16. It's like my body has given up on spring ever coming and gone into hibernation mode. When I finally woke up I shuffled downstairs to make myself chicken souvlaki, with homemade tzatziki sauce of course. I already feel like I need a nap.
With all the excitement of the week I almost didn't realize today is #throwbackthursday! What better throwback than when it was water ice season, instead of all water is now ice season.
Steve called out Monday so had to work today and miss the parade. He didn't want me to go without him because he didn't think I'd be safe alone. I think he's over protective but ended up over sleeping until 10:30 anyway. Now I watch from bed, warm, without pants, and a bowl of fresh arroz con pollo to fill me up.
I missed #tacotuesday so ill go for #wrapwednesday which I didn't even think was a thing until I typed in the hashtag and saw it had 20k other posts. Watch it be one of those annoying it works hashtags and my poor taco will get me inundated with spam from consultants 😭😭 because that is the week I'm having.
We are supposed to be going to the @philadelphiaeagles parade tomorrow, and today it is gross and rainy icy and freezing. It better be slightly nicer tomorrow. To help warm up the house I am baking some cinnamon raisin bread. Bread from scratch is a slight pain, with the yeast always trying to act funky, but it's so worth it when it works out right!
My diets consists of eating junk like @doritos with some healthy stuff like @shopritestores almond butter peppered in while binge watching SVU and praying for a miracle. So far I've neither lost nor gained weight.
