What I ate for dinner, in great detail:

This is probably the first thing I've cooked in six months that I could get excited about. This morning I had about five minutes to get something in the crockpot before the entire day went off the rails, so I put a couple of pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs in with an envelope of Wick Fowler's Taco Seasoning and a can of beer. Some time later we had chicken chalupas for Taco Night. I am a HERO.

In case you can't make sense of the photo: a chalupa shell, refried beans [Are you the person who keeps demanding that stores sell fat-free refried beans? Because if you are, I'm not sure we can be friends.], chicken, tomatoes, green onions, the cheese that Emmet didn't immediately filch from the plate, plain Greek yogurt (if you're not the dumbass who accidentally bought yogurt with honey, because that really wouldn't work),

and this Valentina hot sauce, which is awesome.

Serve on your finest Dixie plate with a beer, a Dark & Stormy, or you know what? fuck it: rum.


  1. Looks yummy. I'm amazed at how useful poached-ish chicken can be -- try some of the same stuff in the bottom of some broth and alphabet noodles (with curry paste for the grown ups). And I'm a fat free refried beans requester, in case you want to cancel our friendship.

  2. Wouldn't dream of it. You look so good these days I should be taking notes.
