Chicken Fajitas...sort of ;)

Hi folks- owww we're basically in Friday! How thrilling/exciting! I am about to go run and teach Body Step with Kristen. I am excited. Afterwards, I am going to take her Body Pump class and then I'll be back! I wanted to thank you all for the comments about my silly lost luggage! They found it today and delivered it to our apartment! Hooray!

I prepped dinner early tonight because I knew I wouldn't be home until 8ish and figured Josh would be home from the gym and hungry before then! I decided to make up some fajitas so I bought whole wheat tortillas, chicken, vegis, and a fajita spice packet. I got everything cooked up, poured in the spices and thought hmm that smells funny. I'm not sure what was up with the spice packet but there was something VERY wrong. It was from McCormick so I was a little surprised. I tasted the vegis and it was way yuck so I (sigh...I hate wasting food) threw it all out. I started over again. I only had one piece of chicken so I cooked it up with some corn and a homemade spice blend. Hopefully this will work in Josh's fajitas! I will be having a vegetarian version with beans and corn instead of chicken!

What are you all doing this weekend? I am getting my hair done tomorrow and cannot WAIT!!

balance, joy and food! said...

you're such a good planner. I try to do the same, prepare meal for days that I know I'll be arriving home late to make sure that I have a good meal instead of snacking all the time.

Weird...I wonder what happened with the spice packet?!

Krista said...

I bet you were happy to see your luggage! What a stressful time.

I have a big hockey weekend... an OHL game, and my hubby & son have games. Guess I'm a rink bunny! :)
