This has been the week of desperation meals after a tragic event on Sunday night. I somehow managed not to shut the fridge all the way and it stayed slightly open for about 10 hours. The next morning all of the food was warm and I had to do a total toss of most of the food in my fridge…including the huge batch of chicken tortillas soup I had just made.
I haven’t had time to do a restock at the store (and am not looking forward to spending all the money) so I’ve challenged myself to clean out the pantry/freezer and make do with what I have.
Omelet with frozen broccoli and spinach, chicken apple sausage and toast on the side.
Oat bran with pumpkin puree, apples and banana. Made with water…no milk. Not the same!
Whole wheat cous cous with the rest of the frozen broccoli and spinach, chick peas, nutritional yeast and avocado.
Okay, I think you get the point.
I was thrilled to have dinner plans with two of my girlfriends last night.
We went to Maverick Rock Taco. It’s relatively new but I had been hearing great things so I was excited to give it a try.
We started with margaritas…which all fun girl’s dinners should. I had the paloma with silver tequila, grapefruit juice and fresh lime juice. I cannot handle triple sec and typical margarita mixers – instant stomachache. This mixture was everything a margarita should be!
We ordered the salsa trio to start with red salsa, avocado tomatillo and pineapple mango salsa.
It took us quite a while to make a decision on our food. There are so many taco choices! I asked the waitress a million questions and then finally went with one calamari with jicama slaw, salsa and green chili ranch and one slow-roasted pork with the pineapple mango salsa on corn tortillas. I also ordered a side of Mexican veggies.
I really enjoyed my meal at Maverick Rock Taco. They have a cozy atmosphere, good food and great service.
I have to admit that I’m feeling a bit blah today after Mexican food and staying up to late watching thew news. I think I have an election hangover. But it’s painting day! I am so excited to say goodbye to pink beige. Can’t wait to show you the new color I chose.
