Potato is gettin it on.
They were delicious. I loved that since they were cooked in salsa, I didn’t need to put any taco sauce or salsa on it, which I usually always have to do with my tacos. This was such an easy recipe and so tasty.
One of my coworkers introduced me to the website www.foodgawker.com (check it out) which has tons of recipes that look amazing. I found a super easy one for chicken tacos. All you do is put in a jar (16 oz.) of salsa, a packet of taco seasoning, and 6 pieces of boneless, skinless chicken breasts into a crock pot. I totally lucked out and the person who lived in my apartment before me left tons of kitchen supplies, including a crock pot. Just throw everything in there for either 4-6 hours on high, or 6-8 hours on low. Mine are still cooking right now, but it smells awesome and it was so simple to make. It makes a lot so I’ll probably have dinner for the rest of the week from this. I’ll definitely be updating on how they were once I eat them!
Today I had time to eat lunch for once in my life, so my friend invited me over for some ramen with sriracha. This person is literally obsessed with it - there are probably three bottles in the fridge and I even gave it to them as part of their Christmas present this year. It really does give the ramen a whole different flavor, though. The bottle says it is a hot sauce, but if you use the right amount you can get a lot of good flavor without the spiciness. There was one time where we put it on pizza and that ended up being really tasty. That was probably my favorite sriracha experience so far, but the ramen comes in at a close second.
Today I went with my favorite man to get greasy food at University Dogs for lunch. I got a chili dog and fries, and then blue Powerade to drink (my beverage of choice). It was a rare and exciting occasion, since I don’t usually get to eat lunch because of my schedule.
My dad took me to Five Guys today for lunch since it was my last day of work for winter break. I had a bacon burger with barbeque sauce and grilled onions, and then fries with malt vinegar. Mmmm so good. I haven’t had a good burger in so long because I’ve been at school and I haven’t really discovered anywhere to get a good one yet.
The only prediction I was right about was the salad (which was actually pretty tasty. Pomegranate vinaigrette dressing mmmm) and the cookies. Instead of pasta we had potatoes, and then the meat was a stuffed pork roast, I think. My nana also made homemade applesauce, which was really good. We had the best possible assortment of cookies for dessert: Italian brown cookies, pizzelles, kolackys, and knots. So yeah. Christmas Eve dinner.
Today is Christmas Eve. Duh. But this means that I will be going to be spending the evening with my dad’s side of the family. If you know me, then you probably know that I am not a big fan of family functions. Despite that, there is always some good food to eat. This side of my family is Italian, so there will most likely be a bunch of Italian dishes. I haven’t heard what the official menu for tonight is, but I am predicting that there will be some sort of pasta (usually my Nana’s gnocchi), salad (actually not a huge fan of it), and hopefully some good Italian sausage or something like that. And then probably some Christmas cookies and other assorted desserts. Omnomnomnomnom. I can’t wait to eat tonight. I’ll post later to see if my predictions were correct. Merry Christmas!
