It’s creeping up to the weekend and I can tell you, it’s been a long week. Not sure why it was especially hard to drag myself to work this week but yeah, there it is.
It’s not as if I’m working in the heat or that I have horrible work mates, although they have their moments…..
I’m in an air conditioned office and I live in Dilbert-land Monday through Friday. Pity the Government Drone as she longs for fresh cool air, a good book, a pot of coffee, a grilled chicken taco salad and maybe a ride along the rural back roads of Georgia.
Ok, one thing I did manage this past week – the grilled chicken taco salad. Lazy as I am, I did not make this salad. We went to El Jalisco’s Mexican restaurant because of my craving. My husband is considerate like that…….I get a Jones for something and we usually go satisfy that craving.
This is obviously more chicken than I would eat at home. Yet I ate it. All. I don't know what is wrong with me.
It was soooo good!
Now that I see how simple it looks I plan to make my own salad one day, just like this one. I can season the chicken and grill it in my grill pan or maybe Doug can just grill the chicken over charcoal. I’m not picky. A little bit of lettuce, a bit of chopped tomato, sour cream and guacamole and we are all set. I never eat the tortilla bowl so this could get tossed into a large bowl. Oh yeah.
Doug chose the Carnitas and oh my, that was the most tender pork I think I've ever had. Look at these portions. This is actually a lunch portion, more food than they ought to serve, more food than you should ingest at one sitting. Pity it doesn't travel well for leftovers.
It was nice sitting at a restaurant being served. We usually cook at home but do manage a weekend treat. What have you been craving letely? Anyone have a good story?
Next week I will probably be able to get up for work without dragging my feet. This was just one of those weeks. Ever have one? I'm sure many of you do.
