Guess which bulky blogger finally got her burly butt to the grocery store today? (Sorry, I love synonyms for fat, especially those used by British tabloids- corpulent, pudgy, rotund, sign me up!)
Anyway, I stocked up and hopefully am now back on track on the whole cooking thing. I ordered three of the cookbooks you guys suggested and they're due to arrive today. Reviews will be forthcoming and our friendships do hang in the balance- if you suggested a horrible cookbook, you are cut out of the will. No exceptions.
I just finished eating Cooking Light Chipotle Chicken Taco Salad for dinner. This recipe got incredible reviews on their website so I finally gave it a try. Somehow, I forgot to buy beans and corn and my avocados weren't ripe yet, but the half-assembled salad was really delicious. If you like cilantro, you'll like this salad. I have gone on the record as being anti-lettuce but I like fancy chopped salads and this hit the spot.
I am also having a lucky day. When I got home from the grocery store in a pouring rainstorm (of course), there was a notice on my door saying that all day tomorrow, a TV show will be filming in front of my building! It's "Pleading Guilty" starring John Larroquette and according to IMDB, it features a character named Brushy. How could it not be great? My day is all planned out tomorrow, hanging around and being creepy and trying to pick up on any Hollywood gossip being batted around. Report to follow.
Also, I won a gift certificate over at And Then I Was a Mom! If you're not reading that blog, you definitely should be and I'm not just saying that because apparently Kate is paying me to be her friend. She's hilarious and slightly crazy, a requirement for any kind of friendship with me. Thanks again, Kate!
