All Work and No Play

This weekend was a good example to me that even though I almost always work all weekend I can also have some fun during my down time.

On Saturday while I was at work Izzy took his dog Roscoe into the groomer. This is Roz's first professional grooming so we were pretty excited t see the finished product (sorry for the poor photo quality, phones only do so much).


When I got home from work we hung outside by the pool with my folks for a few hours and then Iz and I decided it was time for dinner. We made salsa chicken - super easy and SO good!

Oh, you wanted a recipe?

Salsa Chicken 
Chicken breasts
Taco seasoning
White rice
Taco cheese
Tortilla chips (we use corn chips)

Preheat over to 375 degrees
Put chicken breasts in a baking pan
Cover breasts with a fine layer of taco seasoning
Cover breasts in salsa (add as much or as little as you'd like)
Put pan in the over for 30 minutes
About 10 minutes before chicken is done, cook white rice (follow serving sizes on box)
Once rice and chicken are done, put rice on a plate and the chicken on top of it (still covered in salsa)
Put as much cheese on as desired
Add chips as a garnish (and to scoop up your meal!) and enjoy!

I had to sleep early on Saturday night because I of course worked Sunday morning.

After work on Sunday we grilled out for a late lunch, drank a few Twisted Teas and played with the dogs a bit. Roscoe even decided to chill out in the pool chair!

After lunch we hung out in my place watching TV (Undercover Boss, NCIS and Chopped) and then a movie (Man on a Ledge).  In between that we had a poodle dance party! I decided that the dogs' new song is Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO. EXCEPT that I change the name to Poodle Rock Anthem. So awesome, right? I know, it's 'cause I'm awesome.

Today, Iz and I are going to breakfast at my restaurant because it's free meal Monday (1st Monday of every month employees get their meal for free) and then stopping at my tattoo shop to make an appointment for my next tattoo!! I promise more to come on that soon!

Anyway, I'm off for the day. More soon... happy Monday!
