New Years resolutions

Does anyone not make New Years resolutions? Or better yet, does anyone actually stick to their New Years resolutions? I personally think they’re kinda silly. I mean why wait until the new year to make a change. But with that being said I do make New Years resolutions and this year I have quite a few resolutions and goals that I want to achieve. As a reminder and a way to keep track of them I’m going to create a list of them here, I’m sorta a type A personality, and hopefully check them off as I complete them. So here goes….

1)Eat a home. This one seems to be a constant on my lists.
2)Fix credit issues. I made some bad decisions a while back and need to fix them now.
3)Be more cleanly. This was sorta a gift to my hubby for Christmas but with another baby on the way I assume that this will become more of a necessity.
4)Create a better budget and stick to it unless absolute necessity comes up.

I’m sure I could keep adding things to this list but I’ll keep it at that for now. What’s your biggest resolution this year? Happy 2010 everyone!

Missing in Action

Alright, so I know that for some time now I have been MIA. I have a very good reason why though. About 2 weeks ago I found out that my little booboo isn’t going to be my little booboo anymore. He’s going be my big booboo and he’ll also be a big brother! Yes, that’s right, I’m pregnant. The doctor thinks I’m about 6 weeks along, I thought I was about a week further but the doctor knows best. This came as quite a shock to us, we were trying nor planning to have another baby yet but God works in mysterious ways sometimes. After the initial shock, we are very delighted to be welcoming another addition into our house.

Now, for anyone who’s ever been pregnant, you know the first 12 weeks are not so good. The thought of food or even opening the fridge to get my son some milk makes me sick. In fact, the only thing that doesn’t make me sick is fast food. This all seems so familiar. I was the exact same way with my son, the only difference this time is that I now have a little one to take care of so I don’t get to just lay around and sleep.

So for the next few weeks I’ll not be posting too much. I’ll do my best though to at least post some non-food related posts. Plus, I would love it if anyone had any tips on how to get rid of morning sickness?? Please leave me a comment if you do.

Enchiladas

Last night dinner, my plate.

Uuuummmm, elotes. These are the best things I’ve ever had in my life. I guaranty that anyone you feed this too will love them as well, even if they don’t like the ingredients. My Hubby and me could have just eaten this for dinner by its self. For those of you who don’t know what elotes are it’s a popular street food served in Mexico. They roast the corn, brush mayo on it, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and top off with a little chile powder. They are fabulous, trust me. One bite and your hooked.

Enchiladas

The enchiladas were great. I had made a double batch quite some time ago and froze them. The Hubs was gone yesterday evening, and my Little Booboo did not want me to cook. So the meal plan got a little shifted, oh well. I just took these out of the freezer, baked it a 375 for about 30 minutes. Then I topped it with a little shredded cheese and back into the oven to melt. Done. It was that simple. The only thing is that they didn’t hold up very well. I turned out more like a casserole. No big deal, they still tasted great and were super easy.
