My extended weekend sadly came to an end. It was fun while it lasted. Mostly because I had way more down time than originally anticipated. Not a bad thing. My couch is very comfy.
Confirmed this yet again Saturday night. After dinner out with the girls Saturday night, I made it home just in time for Saturday Night Live. It was being hosted by Jesse Eisenberg and I was making a point of watching it. I have a little crush. I’m aware he’s super short, but if he’s cool with it, I’ll be cool with it… Heeeey Jesse…
Super excited for the show. Fell asleep about halfway through it. Fail.
But I woke up with a bang. And did No More Trouble Zones with Jillian for my strength training (according to plan). Followed up by 15 minutes on the elliptical and a 2-mile jog. The cardio wasn’t according to plan, but I felt like doing it. See above paragraphs for the reasoning (#notmuchgoingon).
*It needs to be mentioned here that I don’t always take part in the free chips and salsa. But oh man… whatever is in that salsa should be illegal.
Needless to say, I came home with leftovers.
And because I’m a recessionista (which sounds so much nicer than “cheap”, don’t you think?), I took a page from Megan @ Braise the Roof and did a leftover remix.
My entire Sunday has a mexican spin to it.
Oh wow. Looking at it again, it really doesn’t look appetizing at all.
Don’t judge a book by its cover, people. It was perfect just the way it was. Until I inhaled it.
Dinner required a little more creativity. All that was left was a ton of fried rice and a good portion of the black beans. So I broke out a wrap, added some cheese, and called it a burrito.Almost as good as the night it was served.
Three meals out of one. Thank you, Salsa 17.
Now if only I still had leftover frozen margarita…
Seriously. It would be appreciated this week. Chicago is being prepared for a little thing called a blizzard this week. And the tequila would double as a way to keep me warm.
Seems to be we were feeling left out with all the crazy weather going on in the northeast that we demanded to be in on it. Good times.
That probably means I should hit the grocery store. For eggs. Some frozen food. Wine.
You know… The essentials.
