Ahhhh glorious! Upon leaving work I stepped outside to 70 degrees and slightly breezy. Ohhh yes, I could get used to this 😉
On the way home I decided that it was just too warm not to have margaritas tonight! I rarely crave these (me & tequila aren’t besties) however sometimes it just has to be done.
But since I work full time and all plus still wanted to squeeze in a workout, it was gonna be a fast-fix tonight 🙂
I normally snuff my nose at premade mixes (snob :P) but I loved this! I was really hoping for the best & I got it. I think the addition of both the tequila & grand marnier made it just work?!
Ohhhh dangerous 😉
Speaking of that workout, Verizon Fios sucks big time and our On Demand has only been working intermittently for weeks now. But since I haven’t been able to workout, I haven’t gotten all worked up about it (eh hmm until now). They have even come to the house, we have called tons of times and I think at this point I am at wits end!
Anywho, rant over, I had to scrounge around for something low-impact if I wanted any workout action at all today. Here enters this….
Oh yes, I took it there. Hey, desperate times call for desperate measures 😛
The first 30 minutes was enough of a gentle workout/toning session for today – tomorrow I better be able to visit J.Mich for a Yoga MeltDown sesh or else ugh… mad mad Fanatic!
Okay okay onto the dinner part! So what goes better with a marg than some:
Oh yes, it was the only thing that would do on this 70 degree day 😀
Plus I think the elevator convo with my co-worker the other day mayyyy have played a part in this craving LOL.
The key players in this lil’ meal included:
Shrimpies marinated in a mixture of Key Lime seasoning, Mesquite seasoning and 1 tblsp olive oil.
Veggie fiesta including onions, peppers and corn cooked up in 1/2 tblsp olive oil.
And some fixins including Pineapple Chipotle salsa, Colby Jack, sliced avocado & tortillas (for Mr. Fah-gee-tah himself?)
The Man had the traditional…
The lady had a South of the Border salad beast 😀
This was by far the best dinner of the week. And I proclaimed it my fave salad I have ever made. Times a hundred.
I can’t even explain to you the mixture of flavors in this salad. First of all the shrimp seasoning was PERFECT. The sweet & smoky blend was a real winner! Plus the cool creaminess of the avocado with the sweetness of the corn/pepper blend… ahhh my mouth was having a fiesta 😀 Then you get to the cheese chunks and sweet salsa and… geeze, I gotta stop (outta control?)
So. Unbelievably. Good.
Alright, ’nuff of me obsessing over food (for now 😉 ) and time for a American Idol vs. Real Housewives Reunion face-off —> why must they come on tv at the same time gahhhh?!
Have a vun-dee-ful night and see you tomorrow! Did you remember we’re in the home stretch of the week or what? 😛
And don’t forget that you have until Friday to enter to win some COCONUT PEANUT BUTTER!
