My laundry could not be more laundered and put away. My groceries could not be more bought. These jalapeno and cheddar kettle chips could not […]

Smokey Shredded Chicken Tostadas

A few things about today: 1) My sunhat that blew onto my neighbor’s roof was stuck in his gutter overnight, and has since disappeared. Oops. 2) I’m this close to murdering my dog every time the mail man arrives. 3) I non-embarrassingly purchased Haley Reinhart’s (from American Idol) single “Benny and the Jets” from itunes […]
