I’m currently blogging from a wi-fi zone in my building. It’s wonderful that they have it, but not quite so wonderful that our wireless has been down since Friday.
What started as an apartment-wide issue transformed into a apartment-specific issue as of Monday morning, and the technician can’t come out until Wednesday. It wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t work from home and need the Internet to run a business…and to blog. 😉
Without the web, plenty of movie watching and cooking ensued!
We kicked things off with some delicious fajitas. The master chopper was hard at work preparing all of the ingredients. If you’ve ever wondered who makes all those veggies look so presentable, look no further. Let’s just say that chopping and I do not always get along.
That said, sign me up for heating, stirring, sautéing, flipping and adding in seasoning any day. Together, Bobby and I created some very delicious chicken fajitas, complete with yellow peppers, spinach, Greek yogurt “sour cream,” salsa and cheese.
We served them up in Flatout wraps with a side of black beans.
Then proceeded to watch The Green Mile, which is a very intense but very good movie.
On Saturday night, we brought out this amazing linguine veggie pasta from Decio.
They are an Arizona-based company, though you can order them online. I would definitely recommend it. The great thing about this pasta, which comes in a variety of fun veggies, is that you do not need any sauce to enjoy it. You literally cook it for 2-4 minutes in boiling water, drain it and add a bit of olive oil with salt. The result is phenomenal!
We served up our red pepper linguine with tilapia filets we picked up on sale at Whole Foods.
I rubbed them with a bit of leftover fajita spices, then cooked them in olive oil with chopped mushrooms. It took less than 10 minutes for this entire meal to be made, and it was delicious!
It was like having three “mini meals” in one – the pasta, the tilapia and, if desired, the two combined.
Following this dinner, we watched Blue Valentine, which I found to be really sad and would not necessarily recommend. The acting was great and it got plenty of five-star reviews, but I just kept hoping for a certain ending the whole time. Maybe I’ve watched too many cheesy movies…
All in all, it was a fantastic weekend without access to email or Facebook. Though I was happy to hear upon returning to the online world that Gina had a beautiful baby girl and Meghann got engaged, among other things. Congratulations to both of you!
So tell me, what was the highlight of your weekend? I’m eager to get caught up.
