I have some pork braising away in the oven to try a new carnitas recipe that caught my eye. It's smelling mighty good and I am eyeing my timer impatiently so I can get it finished up.

I also found the cutest little corn tortillas, about 3 inches in diameter, that I'm using to make our tacos which are going to be topped in the most simple of ways: squeeze of lime, finely chopped white onion and a bit of cilantro. I have some left-over quinoa with black beans to round things out.

We had Costco rotisserie chicken, with leftover mashed potatoes with butter, and a salad with leftover Garlic Dressing of Doom

Actually this time around it was pistou (the French version) as I didn't realize I was out of pine nuts. The rest - olive oil, basil, garlic and Parmesan.

i decided to test the subway "less than a" footlong theory and got a tuna footlong on 9 grain honey oat bread with onions, hot peppers, vinegar peppers, cucumbers, and extra spinach. a side of low sodium potato chips and a big diet coke to offset the 1000 calorie sandwich.

it measured 11 and 7/8 inches, so i'm going to write the company for a refund, lol.

Snow didn't happen and neither did dinner. We had leftovers.

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt
