2. Watched Love & Basketball for the first time (yes - somehow I was a teenager in the 90's and never saw this).
3. Turned 29 (and am fine with it!)
4. Bathed two dogs who HATE water.
5. Ate so much Mexican food that I got tired of Mexican food for the first time in my life.
6. Broke a glass in my sink, sending 1000000000 tiny shards of glass down the disposal. Texted my brother who fixes everything, found out you can VACUUM TINY GLASS PIECES OUT OF YOUR SINK as long as it's not too wet down there.
7. Went to Atlantic City for a friend's bachelorette party where I sipped delicious pina coladas on the beach and had my first experience with male strip clubs.
8. Got a salad craving for the first time in years, ate salad every day following for 2 weeks (recipes coming).
9. Enjoyed the shit out of married life. Life without the stress of planning a wedding, and not having to make 100000 world-ending decisions is amazing.
10. Went to a fun gala with some nice arm candy (also in a thrift store dress).
And now for the last Mexican-ish dish I ate before declaring I am done with Mexican food. It's a one skillet chorizo dish:
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 20 mins
- 1 package of chorizo (~17 oz) ($5.00)
- 2 medium sweet potatoes, diced ($2.00)
- 1 onion, diced ($.90)
- 3 stalked celery, diced ($.70)
- 2 cups fresh spinach ($2.00)
- 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced ($1.00)
- For serving: fresh cilantro and diced avocado
Using a sharp knife, slice the chorizo long ways and peel the skin off each link. Put the sausage into a large frying pan and heat over medium-high heat, breaking up the sausage into crumbles as it heats.
After 5 minutes, add the sweet potato and stir together, heating for another 5-7 minutes. Now add the onion and celery. Continue to stir and heat another 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, stir and heat until the onions are translucent and the meat is cooked through.
Serve with cilantro and avocado.
