Taking a cooking break....

...but just for the day!

Even I need a break from extreme cooking now and then and I feel like I've been standing in the kitchen the majority of the weekend starting Friday night. I'll still be making homemade meals today but it'll consist of pseudo-cooking like re-vamping leftovers, assembling sandwiches and salads. I might push myself and steam vegetables (maybe).

Friday Dinner - Pork and Fish Tacos!

Saturday Lunch - Pulled Pork Carnitas with Cilantro Lime Rice and Beans
Bean Dip, Guacamole, Steamed Corn, Salsa and Chips

Saturday Dinner - Chicken Mole Enchiladas, Spicy Mole Wings
Bean Dip, Cilantro Lime Rice and Beans, Extra Mole Sauce with Chips

The two desserts I made were
Homemade Churros
(oh so delicious...)

Strawberry Margarita Granita (Shaved Ice)

I felt like I overindulged on carbs this weekend so I've done a lot of cardio in the morning. I ran 4.8 miles yesterday and 7 miles this morning. I also practiced golf for about 2 hours this weekend and my upper body is sore (always a good sign!)

It's all about checks and balances!

P.S. The Avengers was a GREAT movie. I was absolutely glued to the screen the entire 2hr22 minutes. It was a great combination of action, great acting and humor. I love funny action movies yet there was dramatic moments where I felt anxious too. Another bonus is I'd date all the superheroes...yes even Black Widow..They all have such cute butts.....
