Good morning, everyone! I am so, so excited it’s almost the weekend! What about you?? Time has been flying by lately, and now that we’re having a burst of fall-like weather, everyone’s spirits seem to be lifted! I am counting down the days until I can enjoy one of these…
And wear these every day, regardless of my outfit…
Ok, ok, I don’t actually have these in my possession…yet. But, I’ve been dreaming for years about owing a pair of these beaut’s. Oh Frye, why must you be so expensive. Maybe this will be the year I convince myself that you’re completely worth it. After all, my other 4 pairs of boots are “totes” last season. Right?
And while I sip on my pumpkin spice latte, and day dream about my future Frye boots, I will frolic in this…
then stroll along this magical road surrounded by dreamy fall foliage…
Sound good? Ok, back to reality.
Yesterday’s workout was an easy, but enjoyable one. It was absolutely gorgeous outside so Adam and I decided to tag-team Truckee’s walk. We only went a mile, up and down our hilly neighborhood. It may not sound like much, but mix in an overly anxious labrador and some hill sprints, and it was quite the fast workout! So, I will count my little one mile, because a mile is a mile after all. And remember, on days when you aren’t actually training for something or taking a rest day, please, please, please at least be active for 20-30 minutes! Anything to get your heart rate up and your sweat on will suffice!
For dinner, I made open face enchiladas! They’re super easy, and equally as yummy. Seriously…I don’t DO difficult recipes…we all know this to be true. I snapped a few pictures to show off just how easy these are to make. They’re always a hit with the husband, and a hit with the budget!
Above is everything you’ll need. I bought the Kroger brand of several things to make it even more budget friendly. Usually we have several of these on hand already, but this time we just happened to be all cleaned out.
-Tomato (not pictured)
-1 can diced green chili peppers
-1 can green salsa or “verde” sauce
-A few scoops of salsa
-A dollop of sour cream
-Butter for the sauted onions
First, saute the onions until they’re a light golden brown around the edges.
Next, in a small sauce pan combine the chili peppers and the verde sauce and stir until hot. If it comes to a light boil, that’s a-ok. Then, grill your torillas so they’re slightly crispy.
Melt a handful of cheese on your tortilla. You will do this to 3 tortillas, then stack them on top of each other.
Add a heaping spoonful of your new green mix on top of your cheesy tortillas, then a scoop of onions.
Next, toss on your cilantro, avocado, and tomato. Finish off with a spoonful of salsa and a plop of sour cream.
And there you go!
Super simple open face enchiladas. Or enchilada pie. I guess both would be accurate.
