I’m On A Roll Yall!

Holy beJesus! What’s come over me?!?! Who knows, but I hope it sticks around! I don’t know that I’ve ever blogged more than once on the weekend! Woohoo…Pretty soon my #of entries will catch up with the # of Heidi Montag’s cosmetic surgery procedures.


Maybe, just maybe, if I blog a whole whole bunch...

Wow, that is a tough act to follow, but maybe I’ll catch up one day. hehe.

So, like I mentioned yesterday, I was pooped after the gym and pretty much did nothing the rest of the day but surf the internets. I hate that. It was so pretty out. No worries, I made up for my lack of productivity yesterday by cleaning a toilet and sweeping the floor today. WOOHOOO! I am like super woman or something.

WHAT?!?! You didn't know that was me...well, duh!

Ok, Ok, not really. Dangsky.

Alrighty, so here is how my uber exciting Saturday night went down. I mentioned yesterday that I was in the mood for some sort of shrimp cocktailish dish, so I just let my culinary genius mind do the work. I had hubs pick me up an onion, tomatoes and lemon.  Because, umm, hello, I wasn’t gettin outa my PJ’s to venture out on that trip. THank you hubby! I wanted to make my own version of black bean salsa. Here is what it consisted of.

Black beans, tomato, onion, jalapeno, corn, cukes, garlic, etc.

I diced the onion, tomato, quartered the cuke slices, drained the black beans and corn and added it all in a large bowl. I added the juice from half a lemon and added minced garlic, chopped jalapeno, salt and pepper..also some Sazon Goya seasoning. My fave! I put the lid on the bowl and shook it up, then stashed away in the fridge to let all the flavors marry. hehe.

Here is the end result.


I boiled some shrimo I had picked up from Target.


While that was boiling, I prepared this Near East Wholegrain couscous. Yummm, totally reminded of how much I love couscous. I will definately be making more of it.

I highly suggest trying it people! It comes in all flavors, or you can just flavor your own!

I love couscous.

Soo easy to prepare, boil water, then add couscous, cover and take off heat. Let sit for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork. Ok, well, you better read the directions on the box, I may have missed a step, but still, its EASY!

Fluffy couscous

Mmmm..here’s my shrimpies after boiling. I put pepper in the water.

Eat me! Eat me!

I layered the couscous on the bottom of my bowl, then my salsa, then my shrimp, lowfat sourcream, avacado and a lil feta and hot sauce.

My version of shrimp cocktail...

Yummm…it was awesome!!!! We ended up watching anoher movie and I was in bed by 9:30pm. We are so freakin outa control!

So like I mentioned, I haven’t been a complete waste today. I did a lil. THen I rewarded myself..hehe.. Mimosa time! Anyone that knows me knows I love my champagne! And I’m talking the ultra cheap stuff!!!!! I made me a mimosa with this Ocean Spray Ruby Pomegranite juice. I never have had one like that, but figured I’d be adventurous. hehe

Perdy enuough to drank.

Ok, ok, I’ma get back to watching Deliver us from Eva. I love this movie. mmmmm….LL Cool J. Yummm. hehe. We have a family  birthday party to attend later so I’ll be seeing you guys tamale. Happy Sunday!
