..and ready for the move! Movers are coming tomorrow morning, and we’re pretty much good to go.  Spike is very organized and likes to make lists and spreadsheets whenever we have major life changes.  What would I do without him?!

Breakfast this morning was my new favorite cereal (as of yesterday)–Wegmans maple pecan crunch.  And it was every bit as good today!

Tonight for dinner we had to be somewhere at 6, so we ran over to Baja Fresh and had about 15 minutes to eat.  I’m so glad we did! I LOVED it.  I’ve never been before and had no idea that it wasn’t just another Chipotle or Qdoba.  I had really delicious blackened mahi mahi tacos.

I love fish tacos and get them a lot, and these rank pretty high–especially considering they’re “fast food.”  I brought half home because of the time constraints but will definitely enjoy the rest later this weekend.

Spike got the blackened shrimp tacos, which he also enjoyed.  He said the shrimp was perfectly cooked.

We also shared the chips that came with our meals, and tried 3 of the salsas from the bar–the spicy roja, the salsa verde, and one more mystery kind.  My favorite was the roja–very smokey with decent heat.

I brought the leftover chips home and ate a few tonight as a post-dinner snack. 🙂

Time for bed! Gotta rest up for our busy day tomorrow.


Oh, the weather outside is frightful…

Seriously, 30+ inches of snow in Maryland?! I thought I was getting away from this when we moved down from New England.  Growing up in upstate NY, 30 inches was a mere dusting.  They didn’t even cancel school! But my 7 months down here have apparently turned me into a wimp, and I was oh-so-happy to have a snow day today.  And probably Monday, too, because it doesn’t sound like they’ll be able to get a handle on all this snow by then.  I had to laugh a few weeks ago when we got about 3 inches overnight and there were men using leafblowers to rid the sidewalks of snow at work.  Leafblowers.  Come on, people!

Anyway, tonight I’m bringing out a post from the past.  Spike and I have been taking pictures of our food since August, when we decided to start the blog…it just took us 5 months to actually write something.  So here’s one meal we wanted to share: Tilapia French.

This recipe was really simple, and super-fast.  Have I mentioned how much we love Wegmans? The sauce is Wegmans’ Lemon & Caper Sauce.

Also on the menu–Dr. Frank’s semi dry riesling.  I’m kind of a baby when it comes to wines, but this one is my favorite! It’s from the Finger Lakes, where I grew up, and you can get it at Wegmans stores in Virginia.

Off to bed…and wondering how much snow we’ll wake up to tomorrow morning…
