I made it through the week. My back hurts from hunching over papers, as I edited. I'm exhausted and just want to go for a vacation on a tropical island. But I'm not quite done. I have to put together a portfolio for review. Guess what I'll be doing this weekend?
Besides that, my one daughter comes home tomorrow morning. I'll be picking her up, with my other daughter with me. The three of us will do our galentine's thing, Saturday AM. We missed it on Valentine's, but aren't going to let this opportunity slip away from us.
This past week, I think one of the tastiest things that I ate were the soft tacos. I'm usually not a big fan of flour tortilla tacos, preferring the texture of corn tortillas, but those chicken tacos were delicious. They were a hybrid between soft tacos and fajitas. We didn't add cheese, or sour cream or any usual taco toppings, but had the lettuce, olives, black beans, along with strips of cooked chicken and grilled onions. If I had had any peppers in the house, those would have made the tacos over the top!
This next week, I will finally have time to cook from scratch, again. As it happens, there is now room in the freezer for some prepared meals and soups. So, I'll get busy on the casserole-making and soup simmering. I've enjoyed not having to cook as much this winter.
The other thing that I am really looking forward to is flowers. Who else is ready for spring? I still have crocus bulbs in the fridge that need planting out. It shouldn't be too late. And I need to get started on some seeds this week. Oh, and then there's taxes. It is looking like a busy couple of weeks, but a nice change from everything that I've been working on.
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
