It’s been a good weekend. The weather was fantastic: fifty-five or so degrees yesterday, upper forties today. I went running outdoors Saturday morning for the first time in approximately five months. Jason got some reading done and I organized. We listened to the BYU basketball game and Jason’s birthday gift came in the mail–well, not his actual gift, but a representation of his actual gift. In the evening, we watched The West Wing and ate Edy’s Girl Scout Thin Mint ice cream. Sometimes I feel a little bit guilty that our life is so simple; then I decide just to appreciate it for now.
I have to brag about tonight’s dinner. A few weeks ago, Jason and I saw this special Mexican food edition of Better Homes and Gardens in the check-out line at Kroger. The only magazines we read regularly are the Ensign and Jason’s political science fare, but we started flipping through this one and the recipes looked amazing/not that difficult. We purchased it, but did not try any of the recipes until today. We tried the pork and sweet potato empanadas and arroz verde and both were majorly delicious. Hooray for success on a first attempt.
I can’t believe Groundhog Day is this Wednesday. Groundhog Day is kind of a big deal in the Pullan household. Thank goodness the Bill Murray movie is available for instant stream on Netflix!
