So I did something kind of interesting for me this last weekend. I set up a desk. I am traditionally a nomadic worker. The kitchen counter, the breakfast table, an arm chair, bed…. They have all been my office. But I haven’t had a real office since, well I had Coco and I had to give it up for the baby! Well as I am tackling the writing part of my book I am working on, I thought I should probably try to get a little more organized and structured (an amazing feat if you know me!) So I set up a desk in our family room and I have been sitting here all week. I have to admit I have gotten an exponentially greater amount of work done than usual. It’s actually gloriously quiet and I am just glossing right over the fact that I am in the dark basement in the corner. Because I am just focusing on how functional my new “office is” (I will share some pictures soon!)
So this week we have tons of work going on and then we are flooded with Superbowl coverage because Pete feels that it is totally appropriate to have the NFL station on from 5AM on and I am not exaggerating- it’s seriously on when I come down at 6. In fact he says he has even had it on at the office all day too. We are not addicts- just super fans. We are also in the throes of the little girls getting ready for their Musical auditions. So all they are doing is spouting shell Silverstein Poems (remember those!? My VERY favorite from childhood) and singing frozen songs. Still with the frozen songs.
I am also trying to think ahead a few days to what I am making on Sunday for our Superbowl party. And what you might want to make? That’s where these fairly ridiculous tacos come in.
I had to call them Kitchen Sink Tacos because they have a little of everything going on. Really, a little of everything.
Avocado, fresh jalapenos, FRENCH FRIES, pickled red onions, crispy fried shrimp and a crunchy slaw. Then I topped it with hot sauce.
It’s pretty much the best thing ever. (And by the way- STILL no gluten, dairy, egg or soy!!)
