whole lotta nothing

Monday, October 1, 2012

This past weekend was pretty low key, and I loved every second of it! I didn't realize until Saturday that Adam and I literally have plans every single weekend in October. And on top of that, we have to pack up our place to get ready for the move. YIKES.

Adam's been so tied up with softball that I realized we haven't really done anything together in a long time. Being that he's a coach, he gets into all Georgia High School sports games free, and he gets to bring a guest. On Friday, I decided we were going to get our butts out of the house and do something. And that something ended up going to the Lassiter football game. (I've finally accepted the fact that Lassiter will never be in my rear-view mirror.) However, being a coach's wife has its perks - check out our seats.

I sat with the head softball coach's wife and kids - she was so sweet and holy cow, those kids were entertaining! The two year old was doing yoga (yes, literally sitting in a lunge with her hands up) and the four year old boy was doing toe touches. Kind of makes me want one, until the two year old asked to go poop. NEVER MIND.

I've been a terrible coach's wife and have only gone to 10 minutes of one of Adam's softball games this year (sorry I'm not sorry that I don't find softball fun to watch). I did make it to Saturday's game and redeemed myself! The game was a big deal for a super dumb reason. (If you feel like hearing the terribly dictated story, here ya go...) The team is ranked #1 in the state, and the only two games they've lost have been in the region - so they're #3 in the region. Some genius who makes the rules decided it would be a good idea to have a one game playoff to get into the region tournament. If his team lost on Saturday they were DONE for the year. DONE. The #1 team in the state would not have even played in the state tournament. Ridiculous. However, they won 7-0 so they are off to the playoffs!

Mitchell was also in town this weekend, so we had to hit Taco Mac for lunch on Saturday (oh, fineeeee). He seems to be loving college and his fraternity, which is so great to hear! He was having a hard time adjusting for awhile (don't we all?), but he finally seems to be hitting his groove. So proud of that kid!

Sunday was one of the best days I've had in awhile. Because I did NOTHING. As in, the only time I got off the couch and changed out of my PJs was to go to the grocery store at 3pm. It was fabulous. Adam went golfing with his dad, so Ruthie and I had the house to ourselves. I have to admit, I wish Adam was there so we could have just had a movie day, but I guess he's allowed to use the golfing coupon that I bought him last October and expired today so he had to use it yesterday (such a procrastinator, but at least he used it!).

After I got my butt off the couch and to the grocery store, I was determined to cook. (Remember that whole "I'm starting to love cooking!" phase? It wore off real quick. Honestly, I do love to cook I just do not like all the prep behind it. Barf.) The meal was pretty delish/unhealthy - my specialty!

1.5 lbs ground chicken (That sounds disgusting, but Adam makes ground chicken all the time so I just stole some of his. It was actually delicious!)
1 bunch of green onions, finely chopped
1 diced fresh jalapeno pepper
1/4 cup of water
1 package taco seasoning mix (What's up, 2 weeks worth of sodium?)
1 cup plain, nonfat yogurt
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (I thought this was weird - shouldn't it be mexican cheese?)
6 corn tortillas

- Preheat oven to 350
- In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground chicken, green onion, and jalapeno pepper until the beef is evenly brown. Stir in water and taco seasoning. Simmer until water has evaporated.
- In a medium bowl, mix together yogurt, condensed soup, and cheese.
- Divide the meat mixture evenly between tortillas. Place a couple of tablespoons of cheese mixture over meat, and roll up. Place in a 7x11 inch baking dish. Repeat for each tortilla. Spoon remaining cheese mixture over the top of the tortillas.
- Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes. (I did 25.)

I served it with mexican rice and that was that! I probably should have put something green on the plate... eh, maybe one day I'll be that advanced.

I also made brownies from scratch! (And by scratch I mean I added vegetable oil, water and an egg to the mix.) I was really just craving the mix, but went ahead and actually cooked the brownies, too. Worst. Idea. Ever. I got a tummy ache from eating too much of the mix (READ: raw egg), and then we finished 2/3 of the pan last night. FANTASTIC. I feel so healthy and skinny today.
