Creamy

13 Feb

Doesn’t the word creamy just sound dirty sometimes?

I think  my inspiration for meals this weekend has been because I’ve had this song in my head the past few days

Unfortunately, nothing too saucy like that going on here but that’s a different post for another time.

Creamy described my dinner last night. I was out and about the entire day running errands and such and when I got home, I was in the mood for something quick and warm.

I put some chicken with wing sauce and water in the crock pot when I left in the morning and when I got home, the smell of chicken was in the air. I took out and pulled apart and store for use this upcoming week.

I took some chicken, cream cheese, shredded cheese, red onion, Cholula, garlic and black pepper and mixed together in a bowl

To make chicken enchilada quesadillas

 I needed all that creamy, warm yummy goodness because it was time to do my taxes thanks to Turbo Tax. I’ve used H&R Block online the past few years but this year, they changed the format and just seemed more difficult to navigate through this year as opposed to less. And H&R Block was trying to give me $350 less back than what Turbo Tax gave me so yeah, I’m officially a Turbo Tax girl now.

I also watched The Town

I’m still conflicted if I liked it or not. I feel like it ended with some loose ends that I thought would be wrapped up but never were. Lincoln felt a little conflicted as well but at least he was warm

Anyone else see it-thoughts?

I slept in until 10A this morning which is pretty much unheard of, I love sleeping in!! I’ve been sleeping in more and more on the weekends which is wonderful since I tend to wake up at 4 or 5A and then have nothing to do for a few hours. I made a breakfast wrap grabbed some coffee to go and was on my way out the door!

The mission for this morning was to find a new bed frame. I thought all the bed frame drama was done with after last weekend but it broke again. And I really don’t feel like fixing it every week because that is going to get annoying very quickly plus I am frugal but not so frugal that I won’t buy a new one. But then again, if I end up moving to a different city this year, I most likely won’t take my furniture with me so if I were to buy a new one it would be a waste of money. I checked out a few thrift stores this morning and found nothing, went to the Sears Outlet and all they had was California King frames and went to Value City Furniture and they don’t carry any full mattress frames. I may have a gentleman friend coming into town next month and I am really going to look like a hooker if I have a broken bed. Ugh.

I met up with a friend at the gym afterwards. I’m finally starting to feel better again and had enough energy to work out and we killed it! I did 40 minutes on the elliptical, 10 minutes on the bike then did various upper body exercises

Can I get a hell yeah??!

And can I get a hot tub?!

Speaking of hot tubs….kinda…..my friend and I went into the sauna after our work to sweat everything we didn’t sweat out out. I am all for being comfortable with your body but what is up with the 60+ year old crowd flaunting what they got? I am talking boobs down to the knees, it was very uncomfortable trying not to stare at that since I fear I’m going to be like that one day. I loathe you gravity.

Instead of going for protein packed smoothies, we chose to go for $2 mimosas instead

Look at how big they are! Plus, they weren’t shy with the bubbly and only $2. I could’ve had at least six more with how smooth they were and hello-cheap but we settled on two a piece. This is going to be dangerous for future Sundays, I love mimosas and I love getting my vitamin C in along with booze!

Creamy was the word for dinner again tonight. I made stuffed mushrooms yet again but this time I stuffed with spinach dip!

I saved the stems to use this week, I have no clue how I will use them but I figure I can chop up and cook and add to rice, pasta, etc.

Let the mushrooms marinate in extra virgin olive oil

I mixed thawed frozen spinach, parsley, cream cheese, shredded mozzarella and spike seasoning in a bowl

Then stuffed, lined up on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes

They turned out even better than the last batch!

Are you watching the Grammys? I had no clue it was on but feel like I know what’s going on thanks to the Twitter. And what the hell is up with Gaga–she arrived in an egg or something?
