I am sorry loves
I really shouldn't be promising once a day posts...
I sort of feel like my life is falling apart and so getting around to doing the things I actually enjoy doing (blogging) is hard because I am just so sick and tired of life.
Nothing comes easy anymore, not even sleeping!
Okay enough complaining

2 dinners 1 post
I am not going to cheat y'all

Thursday, Taco Night
Friday, Grilled chicken salad.

Shopping list for Tacos:
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 pack of fajita mix
1 small can of corn
Mexican cheese mix
1 tomato
1 large can of re-fried beans
small sized flour tortillas
Margarita mix
triple sec
chipotle Tabasco sauce

So tacos are easy (so so easy), in the morning before you go to work put your chicken in tupperwere with the fajita mix, and water (there are instruction on the back of the pack) shake it up and close the lid, and simply put it in the fridge for the day. When you get home pull out the chicken and grill it up using the foreman grill (or you can bake it). Cut up the veggies, chicken strain the corn, and put everything in little bowls (because tacos are more fun when you can make them yourself). Dump the re-fried beans in a fry pan over medium heat, cover and let them cook for about 10 minutes stirring every few minutes. Set your oven to warm and put the tortillas in, just until they are warm you don't want to over cook them they will dry out. Make your margaritas. Set the table, don't forget all of your toppings, and make sure you have a serving spoon for everything and plenty of napkins!
I understand tacos are a very personal thing and this is sort of a cop-out because most people know how to make tacos ?(i mean really?) but I more or less just want to give ideas for easy dinner for 2 this week, and as far as easy goes this is almost as easy as it gets! Plus who doesn't love tacos?

So if you cant already tell I love my Foreman grill more than anything! But if you don't have one all of the grilled chicken I make can be grilled outside on a real grill, on a stove top grill or baked (at 350 for about 45min, probably longer). But really just go get a "lean mean grilling machine" you'll love it!

Salad night!
Joe and I love this dinner!

Shopping list:
2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Big bag of salad mix
Shredded cheese (cheddar or Romano depending on the dressing)
2 tomatoes
*any other veggies

Things you should have:
Italian salad dressing
Cesar dressing

So again put your chicken in tupperwere and cover it with Italian dressing, let it sit in the fridge for at least an hour, if you can do this in the morning and let it sit in the fridge all day. Grill the chicken and chop it into 1 inch cubes. Then put the chicken in the fridge while you make the salad, because putting hot chicken on top lettuce makes it wilt. You can either just prepare 2 salads or make a big bowl and serve your selves (but why dirty more dishes). I make this chicken all the time, in salads and's just so easy and so good.
easy. healthy.yay

the week is finally over

and now the weekend...that never feels like a weekend because 5 people in a 3 bedroom 1 bath apartment isn't relaxing for anyone.
Hate my living situation.


Oh and sorry for being depressing...
