i'm in a funk

I'm in a funk this week. You know, one of those "I don't know what to blog about" funks. But here I am, it's hump day and this blog and I are going to try and make it work. Let me start from where I left off, Friday and work up to the present. This will probably be all over the place. Consider yourself warned.

Valentines Day was spent at home due to mother nature. So I picked up a heart shaped pizza and some dessert and called that dinner. If you know me, you know pizza is my weakness. Guess what? I slapped that pizza with rejection. I made my normal go-to meal, Ezekiel tortilla, artichokes & avocados. Yep, simple as that! Let me explain.

These, my friends, are my favorite thing. Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Tortillas. I get mine at my grocery in the organic section, in the freezer. I literally could eat them everyday and I pretty much do. I'm one of those people, when I find something I like, I dive 110% into it. Like the time I discovered Thai food and ate there pretty much everyday for a week or two or three. Or the time I made a sandwich from stuff I had in the fridge (bread, pesto, fresh mozzarella, tomato & red onion) and was so in love that I ate is everyday until I ran out of one or all of the ingredients. Then there was the time I went through a bagel kick, an everything bagel to be specific, toasted in the oven with turkey, cheese and finished with lettuce and tomato. Yeah you get the point now. But these bad boys and I have been having a love affair for over a month and I don't see it ending anytime soon. I will tell you later on in this post what I normally have with mine. Then on Sunday, I decided that I wanted a BLT, which I was going to make on a slice of bread from the same brand, Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Bread. But decided to do my tortilla and make "BLT nachos." Let's just say, HEAVEN.

Since I got completely side tracked about Valentines Day, I'll continue with that. Shon tells me that my gift is a pair of those pretty little Hunter boots I've been obsessing over. I'm not one of those people that EXPECT a gift, I always tell him a card will do, because it's the thought that counts. Back to the boots. The kick? They are freakin back ordered. EVERYWHERE. (Nordstrom, Von Maur, Saks, Urban Outfitters, Zappos, Piperlime, just to name a few) They have since been ordered from the actual Hunter website and should be here this week or early next week. AKA not soon enough.

Yesterday started a big thaw in the Midwest. Sun, something we rarely see these days and above freezing temps causing our plethora of snow to start melting. Where am I going with this you ask? Slush, puddles and more slush. Which has resulted in my feet being soaked through through my socks. Case in point, I CAN'T WAIT FOR MY HUNTERS. I feel we are going to have a long and healthy relationship and I can't wait to get it started.

The rest of our weekend was pretty low key. Did big kid things like get our taxes done. We went to the mall and out to dinner. I ended up not cheating that bad, I didn't eat anything until dinner and 5 of us split cheese fries. I got fajitas and didn't use the tortillas. I was pretty proud of myself. I spent my Sunday doing the norm, cleaning, laundry, crying over the Kimye proposal. Like I said, the norm. Don't be too jealous or judgmental.

Then comes Monday. I get a message from Shon that morning saying he wants to start eating clean with me. I will say, he will eat whatever I make, but he wanted to do it right and not snack on the crappy stuff or half-ass it. He will have his cheat days like I do. He is in his work vehicle all day for work and doesn't eat lunch, so I made sure to pick up lots of veggies, fruits and a jug of water to keep in his car.

Last night we took the kids to their first Pacer game. They really enjoyed it. Didn't make it through the whole thing, so we left after half-time. Part of us leaving early was because Shon and I were hangry. Not hungry. HANGRY. We decided to pick up some Qdoba to take home since there are healthy options. I ran in and after having to wait behind about 10 cops to order, it was my turn. "Two naked burritos, brown rice" I say. "We are out of brown rice, it's currently cooking and has about 15 minutes left" says the lady. "I'll wait" I say. So I take a seat and let him know it's going to be a while since he's stuck in the car with two tired kids. Finally the rice is ready, I order our food and the manager, after apologizing over and over, tells me our food is free. I told her that wasn't necessary but she insisted and I accepted. Thank you Qdoba. If it's at all possible, it made it taste even better.

My "Nachos"

  • 1 Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Tortilla
  • Pam butter spray
  • seasonings (I used garlic powder & cayenne)
  • toppings, my fav is artichoke hearts (the ones in water, NOT oil!) & avocados. sometimes some onion, tomato, lettuce. just depends on my mood.
    Preheat oven to 350. Spray tortilla on one side with the spray and sprinkle your seasonings on it. Bake for about 12 minutes or until tortilla is crispy. Break apart into "chips." I cut up 2-3 artichoke hearts and about half of an avocado. 

    BLT "Nachos"
    • 1 Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Tortilla
    • Pam butter spray
    • seasonings (same as above)
    • 2-3 pieces of turkey bacon
    • lettuce chopped
    • 2 roma tomatoes chopped
    • 2 tbsp guacamole

    That's all I've got today!
