lj idol voting, weekend with Holly, and tasty enchiladas @ 11:14 pm

Tags: ,

Wanted to write before totally pass out. I need to read some entries, and vote (more on that in a bit, but man I'm tired, and I don't think I'll be able to give them enough attention. Perhaps I'll read a few. There are less on the pages than I would think because lots of people decided to use a buy week. This basically is a way that youc an say "hey, I'm not feeling like writing" or "Something's come up, so I can't write." Takes up space on the comment page, but doesn't take time to read. I think I may have about 20 to go. If you would like to vote for my therealljidol entry, click here and check my name if you'd like to see me writing again in this madness. There are others, and if you like them, by all means, vote for them too. You'll probably get sick of me asking for this every week, but just look at it this way, if you do this, you'll keep seeing stuff from me, which could be a good thing, maybe.

Holly just left about an hour ago. Our weekend was ok, but she had a headache yesterday morning and today during church. Today's was particularly bad. I tried to be supportive and loving, but I know what it's like when I get migraines, so sometimes I wondered if she wanted me to leave her alone. I don't know if I was a good nurse, but she was a good patient, and it was kind of fun (for me) to be able to help out someone in that way rather than being the patient all the time. We really like being together, and we don't see each other as much as we wish we could, so she let me try to comfort her. We didn't go to see Bea Movie because they switched the described movie from that to Lions and lambs, I think that's what it is called. We didn't want to see that, so we went to this really uge (two floors) used bookstore in Knoxville. I got two used cds, and she got like six, and we had great fun looking for obscure books and music together. Now that .. is a date ladies and gentlemen, especially when you go to Macaroni Grille and don't eat eveything that you got but still want dessert. Anyone that I can do that with is amazing. I think I'll keep her around for a while :D.

I made some amazing enchiladas with my Macayos enchilada sauce I ordered a while back. You can get it very easily in Arizona, but here in Tennessee, or in Arkansas, it's impossible to find off of the internet superhighway. Ellis came this weekend, and his fam is used to his enchiladas, so we decided to have some friendly competition. We looked at it as a way for the fam to get Ellis's enchiladas, and also a way for me to try mine out on them. Holly wasn't too sure about them as she doesn't like corn tortillas, but when she tried both of them, she decided that the ones she'd tried before must have not been as good. I was glad of this first because she was feeling well enough at the time to actually eat, and second because ... some day she might have to enjoy them with me again some day soon. Ellis conceded to me when he tasted mine. Apparently, mine turned out much like enchiladas, and his were more like enchilada caserole. I thought that both of them were good, but the whole thing made me smile, especially in the fact that I can have some confidence in my cooking. I did have some help, but cooking's more fun when you have help.


And that's about all for now. I'm sad that Holly's not here now, but I'll get to see her for Thanksgiving in three days, so it will be ok, not great but ok. Before I fall on my computer keyboard, I need to end this completely misspelled and mistyped entry and go to bed. Thanks for all of the comments over the past couple of days, I'll get to them tomorrow.

First off, I'm extremely jealous that you have a Macaroni Grille close enough to you to go on a date to. I love that place and the nearest one to me is in Akron Ohio which is an hour and a half away and I don't have a justifiable reason for my husband to drive me there to eat. What kills me is that they have been running Macaroni Grille commericals on TV here for about two years. Talk about torture, especially when you're about 10 weeks pregnant and eating everything in sight.

Also, an enchilada cook off sounds extremely awesome. We don't have those in Western Pennsyltucky : (

Yes, we definitely enjoyed the Macaroni Grill, lots and lots of food and large portions. I can totally understand being annoyed by the distance to said Macaroni Grille. I knew it was popular when we had to wait for like an hour and a half to be seated. It's not like I hadn't been there before, I just hadn't been there in a while, so it was definitely a new experience, kind of like going for the first time again. The chicken parmazan was as big as my headd, for real. I'm having it for lunch today.

Enchilada cook-offs? We don't have those here in east Tennessee either, but I wanted to show them some true Arizona/Sonoran Mexican food. I could have shredded the beef, but ... that could've taken a while. *mouth waters as I think about them* Too bad I didn't get seonds of my own enchiladas. Vultures! Thanks for your comment, you're always insightful and take the ime to comment, I'm glad you're myt LJ friend. Good luck with the baby.

Hmmm... I make a pretty mean enchilada too.... lol, oh well. I feel like I never see you any more. :( Plus, there's no institute (which would not be relative any ways because I am flying out tomorrow morning at like 6 am to fly home to see my familia for Thanksgiving! But, the point being, my life is empty with out you!

Your life is empty. I had to try to figure out who you were for a while there. How many journals do you have? Yes, not being able to bs with you at Institute is slightly out of the ordinary. Don't know if I can say that my life is "empty" but it's definitely neat to see you on the occasions that I do. P.S. I saw you last week right?

Oh, I am so sorry about that. I had signed on to it to check something, and I guess I forgot to go back to my regular journal. I actually started out as Webster_girl06, and then changed it to i_heart_newsies, and became the proud owner of an internet stalker, and thus had to change it again. Which is where I am right now. I also have a blogspot that I like. :D

nah, it doesn't matter. my current journal is friend's only, so I have to add people for them to be able to read my stuff any ways! Thanks for the offer though.

And yes, I saw you last week (but I don't think you saw me... unless there is something you're not telling us...)! But it's not enough! NOT ENoUGH I TELL YOU!
