Such a boring life i lead
I started this morning waking up after some really strange dreams. I had gone to a Kingdom Hall with Pat Hartman ... the Jehovah's Witness woman I studied with for years (from 8 - 16). The elder in charge was some blind guy who flirted with me. Of course most of my dreams lately have been past-based. Last week I had one where I went to Interlochen ... but we didn't take busses, we took supersonic planes. And to get into the camp you had to go thru a maze of bars (think along the lines of those bars set up in Cedar Pointe to get onto rides but much more intricate). I was too fat to fit thru the bar maze so they directed me to the "alternate" entrance which was a maze of stones atop a pool of water.
I awoke and came downstairs and did some cleaning since we were originally gonna have dinner guests over (nothing spectacular ... broccoli cheese soup and sandwiches). The kitchen is really starting to get up to par. I still have a ton of organizing and going thru the cabinets to do, but on the surface it could prolly pass a mom test.
After the dishes were loaded and the counters cleaned, it was time to turn on the football game (which I had set the DVR to record just in case I didn't wake up in time) and get on the treadmill. I put on my tennies, set the treadmill for 2mph w/ no incline begane walking. The initial plan was to walk 10 minutes everyday (cuz i only did every other day last week) but I got to 15 minutes today with no problem. I wanted to go longer but I figured I wouldn't wear myself out this week. Plus I'm sure it was easier cuz I was wrapped up in the Colts/Chargers game. It distracted me.
A quick straightening up of the living room and then I sat down to finish up some crochet projects (that were supposed to be done before xmas) and wait for Kevin to come home from work. On his way home he stopped off at Michael's to get some yarn I needed to finish my project, but they didn't have it, so he just ended up with a photobox instead (to put all my pictures in once I finish scanning them so they don't end up back in plastic bags) and stopped off at Home Depot to grab an air filter for our furnace (which we've sorely needed for months now)
By this time the Giants/Cowboys game was on. I was torn for this one. I really wanted the Giants to win, but I knew that the Cowboys are the only real hope to beat Favre and the Packers. The Giants ended up winning and while I'm really happy for Eli and the G-men, I'm not looking forward to a Favre/Brady Superbowl where the announcers try and one up each other as to who loves which QB more.
our company didn't pan out for dinner tonight so Kevin instead got ingredients so i could make an enchilada casserole. It's loosely based on the one I had at da banshee's Pampered Chef party.
1lb ground beef
1tbsp minced garlic
cumin, chili ancho, salt and pepper to taste.
Brown up the beef with the onion, garlic and other spices. Once done add enchilada sauce packet and water (according to envelope) and simmer about 5 minutes. Then add a can of refried beans and simmer another 5 minutes.
Then take a package of corn tortillas and cut into quarters and line a baking pan with a layer (kinda like making a lasagna) then spoon the meat/bean sauce on top and sprinkle some colby jack cheese. repeat. (i made 3 layers) sprinkle lots of cheese on top and then put into a 350 oven for about 15 minutes (until cheese is bubbly and melty). take out of oven and let it sit for about 5 - 10 minutes to set up. Cut and enjoy.
It turned out really yummy. We both added jalepeno slices on top when we ate it (nacho style) to spice it up a bit, but it was fine without them as well. Next time I would add more corn tortillas tho. I only had a package of 12 to work with tonight. Next time I would have at least 20 to add a little more of the corn flavour.
Watched Terminator:The Sarah Connor chronicles as we ate. It wasn't that bad. Gonna DVR tomorrow's episode (since we'll be at trivia when it's on) and give it a little bit of a chance. I love the Terminator movies. I just hope this doesn't disappoint.
Got a busy day planned tomorrow. Going to the Sec of State for car stuff so we can get insurance to finally pay off the PT Cruiser, lunch at the chinese buffet (mostly for the sushi), Kevin has some court stuff to deal with and we have to go to the hospital and get his eye examined (he poked his eye last Sunday and it's been bothering him since then. He's been a pirate for the past 4 days). Hopefully we'll also get downriver to return our DVD recorder/player that isn't recording or playing DVDs lately and maybe stop by to see our nephews before we have to be in Dearborn Heights for trivia @ 8pm. oh yea! and I have to fit in 15 minutes on the treadmill early.
And now it's time to go spend some more time with the hubby and watch a movie before he falls asleep ... if he hasn't already while I've been blogging. He works way too hard.
