Wazzup chickens?

I'm having a very lazy day. I had planned to get up and whittle down my to do list. But I couldn't wake up today and slept in. It was nice. I'm going to set an alarm for tomorrow morning though. And maybe try to get in bed by 10 tonight.

I slept through breakfast hours, but I ate right away anyways. I had a cinnamon sugar mini bagel, 2 Morningstar sausage patties, 1 cup watermelon, 1 large orange, and 5 strawberries.

Later I snacked on carrot sticks and the end of the hummus, with a little olive oil.

Now I'm just being lazy (hey I *did* do 2 loads of laundry today, that's something, right?). I was talking to some peeps on the message board about cheese. And so I got thinking that I wanted some. I had a tiny bit of Kerrygold Ivernia cheese. It's an Irish cheddar. I really, really like it. It's pretty sharp and reminds me of parmesan. What are your favorite cheeses, and what do you pair them with? I see this Sticky Toffee cheese at the store a lot, and I've tasted it a couple of times. I really like it, too. I think I may buy some next time, as well as goat cheese, which Nancy-Pants recommended to me.

The parents are cooking dinner tonight. They want steaks. I'm not going to eat steak with them. Instead, I'm going to make another taco salad. I swear, that's all I ever want these days! I'm seriously obsessed. When I make it for just myself, I use a cup of Amy's Black Bean Chili for the "meat" instead of the meatless crumbles. Actually, I'm thinking of doing it next time (or maybe tonight?) with a black bean and corn salsa. Anyone have a good recipe?. I just realized that I'm out of salsa though, so I'm probably going to use the Amy's chili since it's got a kick to it.

What are your plans for dinner tonight?

(PS - I realized while tagging this post that this is the first post in a long time that isn't about school. YAY!)

Yay for a lazy morning! I took my last on-campus final today; just have an online one to do tomorrow, so I can relate to the relief you must be feeling :)

I'm going to look for the Kerrygold Ivernia and Black Bean Chili you mentioned! If you like sharp cheeses like that, you should try Parrano. It's similar to a parmesan but has an almost nutty taste to it. It's so good! DBF used to be a cheese specialist and he turned me on to it. I haven't been brave enough to try goat cheese; I'm not sure why it scares me though. Let me know how you like it once you try it. I'm having feta for the first time tonight... I'll keep you posted.
