This morning I woke up bright and early (well, for a day off) and had the house to myself for a couple of hours. I made coffee, read blogs, and listened to the rain. Ahhh, the little things in life. I also ate a clementine and a honeycrisp apple.
Around lunchtime, I embarked on making freezer burrito batch 3. The ingredients this time were:
- pinto beans
- cheddar cheese
- brown rice
- hot chunky salsa
- black olives
- flour tortillas
Other big cooking projects today? I made old fashioned chex mix, and Mr. Greens is currently in the kitchen slaving over his famous hummus and mujadarrah. We like greek food in this family. We also like chex mix.
It’s acceptable to have once a year, or so. I make the full fledged recipe, with butter, and lots and lots of Worcestershire sauce. Sometimes I add Tabasco, and I usually add Tony Chachere’s.
There’s no surprise that I didn’t have a proper dinner, since I’m stuffed to the gills. I steamed some dumplings for the hungry boyfriend, mostly so he wouldn’t eat all the chex mix. These are from Vinh Phat, one of our local Vietnamese grocery stores. Pretty darn good.
I ate one. I am planning to have a beer or two tonight, probably Sam Adams Light. We’ll probably watch a movie, and try to get some shut-eye.
Yay for Christmas tomorrow! I hope everyone has a great day with people they love.
