We went to the movie around 1. It was pretty good. Not our favorite Coen brothers thing ever, but I think most of the time, their movies have to grow on me. The only exceptions were "Blood Simple" and "Raising Arizona," both of which I loved immediately. There was some good acting, especially Matt Damon, who I am liking more as he gets older. I can't say I have been much of a fan up until this year.
When we got home, we were both starving and I had a headache, so it was very important to make something quick and easy. I bought some gigantic tortillas the other day, thinking of making big ol' burritos a la Moe's or Chipotle, and I noticed I also had some cheddar-style Daiya (for you non-vegans, Daiya is the new vegan wonder-cheeze; I'll post more about it another time). So quesadillas seemed like a good idea. I sauteed up some mushrooms & onions and included them so I could say I had some veggies today.
I served these up with some salsa and Tofutti Better Than Sour Cream. They were great! I think next time I probably would add a bell pepper and some extra heat from red pepper flakes or cayenne, but this was a great meal to eat in a pinch.
Hooray for finger food!
We spent the rest of the afternoon listening to some records we scored at Newbury Comics Norwood yesterday, using John's Christmas gift card. We got 9 records for $9, most of which were in decent shape! Some other stuff that was more expensive too, but it was worth it. It's supposed to be a bit snowy tonight, so I am going to go make barbecue tofu and mashed potatoes, maybe with some spinach or broccoli so I will have eaten something green today, and then try to go to bed so I am rested for tomorrow. Tomorrow at 10:06 AM CST, I will turn 33! So we have some birthday plans in store, including a trip to New Hampshire to try a vegan restaurant we haven't been to yet. Excited!
