Dine-At-Home One Month Challenge
We know going into our month that our anniversary, the 14th (albeit, not "the" anniversary, but we acknowledge the passing of the date) would be a day where we would celebrate of some sort, with drinks or food. We chose a food we could not easily or cheaply prepare ourselves (chinese, mainly because I want it so infrequently there is no point in buying the materials only to waste them) and from a place with no MSG in usage. Let me tell you about the chinese.|
It was, first off, one of the BEST orange chicken dishes I've had. R. got moo goo gai pan and it too, was yummy.
I ate less than a 1/4 of mine and was STUFFED, uncomfortably. R. ate about the same. We both slept like the dead, and woke up groggy.
I lived on the toilet the next morning, and not to waste money or consumables, I brought just the orange chicken and rice to R. to share with her on her lunch hour.
I lived on the toilet in Target for almost 30 minutes.
We still have 3/4 of her moo goo gai pan left. I cannot resign myself to eating it.
Last night, we made grilled-stuffed burritos, my favorite Taco Bell food. Using flour tortillas, we stuffed them with:
- vegetarian refried beans, seasoned with sauteed diced yellow and green onions and this mix of taco seasonings I have concocted
- saffron rice
- a cheese sauce like TB's, with light sour cream, light cream cheese, and mozzarella, whirlled in the food processor, then mixed with salsa and dices tomatoes
- shredded cheddar
Roll 'em, toss them on the Foreman grill until the tortilla gets brown and crunchy, and enjoy.
