Just Chillin'

by Meghann on April 16, 2010

Awww…. re-lax-ation. ๐Ÿ™‚

Now tell me – what is better than a Friday night all to yourself filled with puppy love and a full DVR? Absolutely nothing! ๐Ÿ˜‰

It has been a crazy week and I’m happy to report it’s finally over. Woo hoo!

This afternoon I snacked on some trail mix while I finished up at work.


I had a vision of Taco Chili Fries in my head for dinner. ๐Ÿ™‚


My original vision has yuca fries, a taco chili topping, and cheese.


Only I was too lazy to cut the yuca base into actual fry shapes. Instead I had yuca cubes that were baked at 415 for 15 minutes.


That taco chili I had envisioned? Yeah, it was more of tempeh with taco seasoning and kale that I had heated up on the stove top. I still tasted great when topped with cheese.


With some lightly roasted asparagus for color.

I was really wishing I had some blue corn chips to chow down with. I think that’s all that was missing. ๐Ÿ™‚

Dessert was a serving of Thin Mint Ice Cream with two Thin Mint cookies


Tomorrow morning I’m heading to Miami to visit my twin bro and a very good bloggie friend. My plans include eating good food, soaking up the sun, and an adventurous bike ride. I can’t wait!

Your plans sound like relaxation to me! Enjoy the weekend. I wish it were sunny in NE but it’s all rain rain rain

2 Jessica @ The Process of Healing April 16, 2010 at 9:02 pm

Sounds like a perfect day tomorrow!
I am ADDICTED to thin mint ice cream!

3 Hillary April 16, 2010 at 9:11 pm

twin bro? i never knew! enjoy your relaxing friday night, girl.

4 Beth April 16, 2010 at 9:40 pm

Aww you’re a twin! One of my best friends is one and has such a special relationship with her twin. Have fun!!

5 Julie @ Pickley Pear April 16, 2010 at 9:40 pm

I am home relaxing and watching my DVR this fine Friday too, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Ohhhh the Girl Scout flavored ice cream. I have not given in cause I’m pretty sure I’d eat the entire half gallon in one sitting! Have fun in Miami!

I had a really quiet Friday night and loved it! Saw “Date Night” with my mom (haha) and then just read on the couch for a few hours. Low-key nights are key once in a while. ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a great time in Miami!

Mint and chocolate are the best combo!

9 missyrayn April 16, 2010 at 11:03 pm

I didn’t know you were a twin. Do you have twin-sense?

And when doesn’t cheese make everything better…just a bit goes a long way.

10 Meghann April 18, 2010 at 7:42 am

No twin-sense. Maybe because we’re fraternal?

11 midgetkeeper April 16, 2010 at 11:23 pm

Your weekend sounds delightful, have a safe trip!

12 Sarah-Mae @ Eat, Run, Knit April 17, 2010 at 12:32 am

I love Friday nights! Jamie Oliver’s food revolution on TV and downtime!!!

13 britchickruns April 17, 2010 at 3:27 am

How are you feeling post ultramarathon? Your recovery is seriously superhuman — I can’t believe you haven’t spent the last week inert, complaining about soreness!

18 Meghann April 18, 2010 at 7:44 am

Well the ultra was two weeks ago now and Istill feel great. I think it was the face that I kept moving during recover, but still not pushing too hard.

19 christina cadden April 17, 2010 at 9:38 am

Looks good!

20 kbwood April 17, 2010 at 10:13 am

21 adrienmelaine April 17, 2010 at 10:15 am

I love the way you eat- every picture brightens my day a tiny bit more- not to mention sells me on things- goji and me granola- cough, cough

22 rebecca lustig April 17, 2010 at 10:26 am

23 melissa April 17, 2010 at 10:30 am

I am spending a night in miami beach in July. Let me know if you have any recommendations! I have heard mixed things about Casa Tua, not sure if it worth the splurge. have fun!

24 breakingsilence April 17, 2010 at 10:35 am

27 Erica April 17, 2010 at 11:54 am

Meghann- your dinner always look so tasty! We had asparagus last night too- so fresh right now <3. Have fun today

28 Molly April 17, 2010 at 12:56 pm

Sounds like a relaxing friday night. I have a couple questions about Maggie; m(cutest dog ever) shes a jack russel, right? Does she require a lot of exercise? I’m thinking about getting one but I want to make sure it would be comfortable living in an apartment. What’s your daily routine with maggie?

29 Meghann April 18, 2010 at 7:46 am

Yes, Maddie is a jack russell. She is my second jack russell and I think is the perfect aprtment dog. Sure she goes crazy and runs in circles, but after 10 mnutes she’s tired adn needs a 5 hour nap.

30 fitandfortysomething April 17, 2010 at 5:26 pm

oh i love chillin on a friday night. have fun this weekend and enjoy your time with friends and family!

31 Katherine: What About Summer? April 17, 2010 at 9:01 pm

32 jessica April 18, 2010 at 10:39 am

Thank you for introducing me to yucca! I never knew what to do with it until I kept reading about it on your blog and finally picked some up at the grocery store. I don’t know how I lived so long without it – yucca fries are delicious! thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
