WIAW: hashtag taco tuesday

I had fun with What I Ate Wednesday last week, so we're back for round 2. Before I get to that, though, I have two important thoughts to explore.
  1. Thank HEAVENS everyone on Facebook & Instagram was around to tell me that it was Election Day yesterday, or else I clearly never would have known. It's not like there are a bajillion horrible ads leading up to it or anything; if it weren't for all those pictures of "I Voted" stickers, how would the message ever get to us?! #sarcasm.
  2. Do you ever find yourself reading a blogpost, shaking your head and thinking "....why would I do that?!" Yesterday's offender involved putting a naked baby in a carved pumpkin for a photoshoot. There are just some things that I don't think need to occur. Anyone else? No? Just me? Okay, then...
On to the good stuff!



The usual: coffee & yogurt (I'm out of bananas. The horror!)


This was supposed to go with my lunch, but I found that my stomach was audibly growling during a meeting, so snack time it was! Baby carrots and this freakin' awesome hummus from TJ's. Love the flavor!


Leftovers FTW! (per usual) Baked buffalo chicken tenders nuggets, with salad and a side of ranch. Even as leftovers, the panko on the chicken stayed crispy, and the buffalo flavor was even spicier. Yum!

A co-worker brought me some pumpkins muffins with chocolate chips as a thank-you for some cookies I brought her, and I snacked on half of one on the train ride home. (no picture)


After yoga, it was time for #tacotuesday! Tacos are, and have always been, my favorite meal - if I don't know what I want for dinner, or don't feel inspired, the answer is always "tacos or spaghetti." Tacos never let me down! I made the chicken in the crockpot, so it was ready to be shredded and taco-fied when we got home. Topped with all the standard goodies - all we were missing was guacamole. There was enough for leftovers for lunch today, so I am definitely a happy camper.

I may or may not have followed the tacos with a glass of white wine and a few pieces of Halloween candy while watching the Caps dominate the Islanders.... but there is no photo evidence, so you'll never know! Mwahahahaha.

Mexican food is HANDS DOWN my favorite thing ever. I could seriously eat it every day without getting sick of it (speaking of, we need to have this blate/double date at Mexico restaurant - have you been down that way yet???). Looks like a great day of eats though? And buffalo chicken nuggets??? I need to get on the immediately.

I love TJs hummus with baby carrots. My favorite flavor is the cilantro jalepeno flavor. Just a hint of spicy. So good. :)

Went to Mexico on Friday and it was fantastic - just what I was craving! We need to schedule that double-date / blat STAT :) Highly recommend the buffalo chicken - super easy to make that way, and tons of flavor!

Totally fine ;) I felt like I was completely overwhelmed by people reminding me, though!

Seriously - so simple! We probably do it 2-3 times a month... and I'm not mad about it at all.
