My plans for the day started with: dishes, vacuuming, mopping, and laundry, but then I read somewhere that today is “No Housework Day” so I didn’t do ANY of that! Instead I slept until almost 10am (Thanks to Michael who took care of James this morning :-D) and then took James on a long walk to Petco. He got a new fleece football! (And another fleece bone but he doesn’t know about that one yet.) He has already ripped half the fleece off his football and driven me absolutely insane with the squeeking, so I would say he’s pretty satisfied!
After that James passed out for nearly three hours which gave me time to make these cute Easter egg coasters:
Pattern from: Whiskers and Wool
Not really sure what I am going to do with these since Easter is tomorrow but at least they’re cute! I’m pretty excited that I can now follow a crochet pattern! Hopefully now I will be able to make my way through the two large boxes of yarn that I got for $1 at a rummage sale. 🙂
I whipped up some veggie fajitas for dinner. These are easily becoming one of my new favorite dinner dishes. I don’t know why I never though of making these before but I think this is only the second time I’ve made them since we moved in to this apartment. They are easy, delicious, and cheap – my favorite part!
Easy Peasy Veggie Fajitas
I made that up just now. Clever, right?
1/4 red onion
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
Sour cream, salsa (optional)
1. Cut onion and peppers into thin strips
2. Heat oil in skillet over medium heat
3. Add onion and cook until nearly translucent
4. Add peppers and cook until soft
5. Add jalapenos, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste. Cook a few more minutes
6. Steam tortillas (in oven, with steamer, or in microwave)
7. Place generous helping of vegetable mix into tortilla
8. Top with sour cream and salsa if preferred
Total cost: Approx. $1.10/serving
Total time: less than 30 mins.
The amount above made 4 fajitas. Michael put some leftover chicken we had from Opening Day (Go Cards!) on his so he had a little less vegetable mix than I did. But the great thing about fajitas is you can just add and subtract as much as you want. You really can’t screw it up!
James is groaning next to me telling me it’s time for bed, so I better hop off. (Haha, get it.)
