Your Neighborhood Party Animals

Things were pretty quiet around here last night…

Which was perfectly fine by all three of us. You can just call us your neighborhood party animals.

I love how he looks so nice and innocent…looks can be very deceiving. Winking smile

Once I got home from work last night, I decided to pour myself a beer in my favorite Oktobeerfest frosty mug (well, it was frosty when I first started sipping on it). This particular brew was a Kona Longboard Island Lager which is one of Jay’s favorites.

**Creeper alert**

For dinner, Jay and I kept things pretty simple. He had leftovers, I was craving Mexican, we had a ripe avocado that needed to be used up, and Jay wanted some guacamole. Bing, bam, BOOM!

This particular batch of guacamole I whipped up was probably one of my best, and I didn’t measure a thing. Funny how that happens sometimes, isn’t it? I used about 3/4 of the avocado, some fresh minced garlic, diced tomatoes, red onion, salt, and pepper. So easy.

My dinner was pretty amazing…I’ll call this a Mexican Chopped Salad.

To make it, I simply threw together some torn romaine lettuce, diced tomatoes, 1/4 of an avocado, corn, black beans, red onion, and quinoa(!!), and tossed it all together in a quick vinaigrette:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • salt & pepper

Restaurant quality, I tell you! Give it a try – especially adding in the quinoa. YUM.

Breakfast

I really wanted pancakes today, but I didn’t feel like dirtying all the dishes for them. So I made oatmeal instead…

…which I quickly realized uses only one dish less than pancakes would have. Go figure.

Good thing today’s batch was a yummy one!

I put together a basic batch of oatmeal, with lots of blueberries mixed in, plus a batch of honey cinnamon peanut butter.

I’m actually starting to run low again on the PB2, so it may almost be time to order some more.

Time to head off to work…and maybe a workout after that? We’ll see what I feel like when the time comes. Winking smile

Hope everyone’s weekend is off to a great start!

    I was exciting and had cereal for breakfast because I had to be at work nice and early. Cody is SO cute :) I’m thinking I need to make that salad! I would never have thought to add quinoa. Great idea!

    Love the Cody pictures and the Mexican-themed dinner! I love Mexican food. My cat Emma loves to curl up on anything. Her favorite is my fiancee’s Giants blanket! I am very offended by that as I am a HUGE Jets fan. My dad had season tickets when I was young so I used to go to a ton of games. Now, my sister and I go to one game each season.

    Quiet nights are my favorite nights! Though my 2 year old hasn’t had much appreciation for them in the past week. I’m exhausted!

    How much quinoa did you add? I was planning a Mexican inspired salad for dinner tonight anyway!
