Oh weekend, I am excited to see you! I found out this week that my last assignment for the year is due December 17th, then I’ll have 3 weeks off. 17 more days…it can’t get here soon enough! In the meantime, I have to decide what shows to watch over Christmas break…
I’m feeling a tad burnt out right now, so knowing I’ve got less than 3 weeks to go is giving me something to look forward to, that’s for sure.
Although having some fabulous eats yesterday made the day better!
My usual banana protein oats (2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup egg whites, sliced banana, a splash of banana and a few drops of stevia) with a tablespoon of cocoa powder mixed in. Topped with peanut butter = chocolate, banana and peanut butter. Really, is there a better combo?
And dinner last night:
I can’t even remember the last time I had taco night. That is just unacceptable, considering my love for Mexican food! I made one small mistake though – I prefer the kits that have the hard and soft shell tacos, but I accidentally grabbed the one with soft shells only. That’s ok…I lived with it.
Of course, a taco night necessity:
Homemade guacamole. I used to buy guac on an almost weekly basis, until I figured out how easy (and cheap) it is to make at home. It tastes better too! I love adding a pinch of cumin to mine; it sounds really weird but it adds awesome flavour.
And another homemade side:
Salsa! My mom made her own batch of salsa last month and I’m finally getting a chance to try it now. She’s never canned her own, and I have to say, I am impressed. Nicely done mom! Good texture and flavour with just a hint of spice.
Mmm…tacos. (of course, said in a Homer Simpson voice)
2 tacos stuffed to the brim with all the fixings. Taco meat (I used ground chicken), lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream, cheese, guacamole. So stuffed that I couldn’t even fold them properly! Maybe that’s why I like hard tacos better – so much easily to judge how much filling I can shove in there.
I went back for a small scoop of the fillings…the best part anyways!
Followed by a few select pieces out of my chocolate cupboard, my night was complete. (Yes, I have cupboard space dedicated to my chocolate stash. I have priorities, people).
I actually don’t have any plans this weekend, which is nice considering that it’ll likely be the last one for a while. I’ve got the usual errands, plus I want to get a hair cut, do a bit of Christmas shopping and get the decorations up. The haircut is so needed; I’m pretty sure my last trim was is June? Oops.
Foodie things that must happen this weekend:
Yogurty’s – I walked past it the other day and noticed their seasonal flavour right now is gingerbread. Must.Happen.
Sushi – My sushi cravings will be dealt with! Eric and I are thinking of ordering takeout Saturday night. Cannot wait!
<— Do you have a chocolate/candy/salty snack stash? Chocolate must be in the household at all times, otherwise I resort to snacking on chocolate chips when I get a craving.
<— Hard shell or soft shell tacos? Chicken, beef, fish, shrimp, something else? I’ve only had fish tacos once when I was Toronto about a year and a half ago, but I really need to try them again sometime.
