So, have I told you guys how much I’m diggin’ Mexican food lately?
Oh, I have? Only about 100 times? Okay, my bad.
Well lucky for me, my friends are very much aware of this latest obsession. Last night, Jay and I were invited over to our pals Brian & Mal’s place for dinner, so when Mal had asked me earlier in the week if I’d be interested in having chicken chimichangas for dinner, it was basically a no brainer.
Up until last night, the only other time I had tried a chimichanga was actually just last month. Jay and I loooooved them, but I didn’t think it was anything I’d ever attempt to make since I don’t exactly have a deep fryer.
Well, wouldn’t ya know…they can be baked on the oven.
We had a whole Mexican feast last night, complete with our chimichangas (she used THIS recipe), refried beans, rice, salsa, chips, and guacamole. Jay and I offered to bring the chips and guac, and we were planning on making it from scratch…buuuuut our avocados were soooo not ripe that we couldn’t even mash them. At least you can still find some decent store-bought kinds!
The entire meal was absolutely delicious and I finished everything on my plate with noooo problems.
The four of us hung out and caught up a bit for a couple hours after dinner…and then it was time for dessert.
Homemade brownies with black raspberry chocolate chip ice cream. Hooooooly cow.
In other news, Jay and I did decide to cancel/postpone this weekend’s Babymoon. We were able to get everything refunded, which helped make our decision much easier. We’ll definitely still plan something before baby comes, maybe just for a night over somewhere. And we’ll hopefully still find some fun things to do this weekend too, so I’m happy with our decision. Either way, we’ll still make it out to Portsmouth one of these days!
Tonight, I am reeeeeeeally looking forward to laying low. The two of us have had something going on for the past three nights in a row, and while they’ve all definitely been good things (softball, breastfeeding class, dinner with friends!), I’m ready for a night of nothing. I’m also ready to get in a workout after work today. Thanks to the later evenings and early mornings, I’ve been having a hard time getting anything in over the past couple days, and my low back could really use some stretching. Perhaps tonight will be a yoga kinda night?
What kinda night will tonight be for YOU?
