Fiesta Taco Chili

You know the great thing about a holiday weekend? Today is Monday, and it doesn’t suck.  All day today, I thought it was Sunday. This is partially because I worked on Saturday, so instead of three days off I have had two. But I’m cool with it because when I go back to work tomorrow,… Continue reading Fiesta Taco Chili

Spicy Lime Chicken

You know what’s absurd? Waking up at 6:15am for work. I used to think I would like to be the type of person that was able to wake up, go for a jog, make breakfast, eat breakfast, check e-mails, take a shower, go run an errand, then go to work. I hear those people are… Continue reading Spicy Lime Chicken
