I seriously slept in until waaaaay too late today. I’m not even going to tell you guys how late, because it’s ridiculous! I know when my body is telling me to take a break, and today, it definitely was. I had a long weekend of work, a decent run Sunday night, and a long day on Monday.
On my way home from work Monday, I was checking out FB at stop lights and saw that Ari did a blog post on a broccoli cheese soup with roasted corn that she made. (Drop by Ari’s Menu and wish her a happy birthday on Friday!) It has been cloudy, cool, and rainy around here, which is rare if you live in AZ. It only seemed appropriate to make a warm savory soup to enjoy on such a cold evening, so I did!
I also baked mahi from Costco to go with it. It turned out so amazingly good that I can’t wait to eat the leftovers for dinner tonight! Check out her recipe here.
So after I got up today, I took a bath and shaved my legs, (always makes this girl’s day better!) and threw some quinoa in the crockpot to have for the rest of the week. I was going to paint my nails, but I ran out of time again….
This is the color I will be using soon!
I love this color! It’s a Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polish in Commander in Chic. It is a beautiful neutral taupe that is perfect for winter. The pics don’t do it justice. Ill post a better pic of my nails when they are done. My toes, as you probably remember from this post, have looked a little bit rugged lately and deserved some attention. I almost went to get a pedicure at a nail place, but can never justify going to get my nails done when I have this in my room:
My biggest problem is sitting still for enough time after they’re done to let them dry. Yeah, I need to learn to relax and quit trying to get so much stuff done at a time.
I also gave Ms. Tater Tot a bath today. She was a dirty pug.
Now she’s so fresh and so clean clean! She hates to love baths. She will slowly sneak out of the room when she hears the word. She ends up liking it though, especially when it’s over and she gets to play with the towel!
Tonight, I made Herb and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast that I made a few months ago to go with the leftover soup from last night. I had some rosemary and sage left over from cooking last week to use instead of the poultry bouquet. I also sliced some sweet potatoes on my mandolin slicer and threw them in the oven to go on the side. It turned out SO good!!
