We cleaned off at home and started on roasting some veggies for dinner. We had our rotisserie chicken, roasted veggies and some french fries leftover from Red Robin.
My dinner plate
For dessert, we got gelati’s from our new favorite local water ice place. I swear they really have the best water ice. It’s becoming my favorite place to go for dessert. Next time, I want to try their frozen yogurt in a cone. I keep seeing people order it and it looks delicious!
On Sunday, I spent the day with Melissa and my mom. We went shopping and had lots of laughs. Melissa finally got me to try smelling the “bacon” candle at Yankee Candle. EW! I HATE the way bacon smells and tastes so it was torture to smell it but I did it to be a good sport. I didn’t enjoy it! Haha! I didn’t get many good deals to feature tomorrow. ShopRite didn’t have very good sales this week and we didn’t need that much stuff. I got a few random things to incorporate into meals. I want to try making some meals I’ve seen on Pinterest this week. I’m excited!
I decided to take some of the rotisserie chicken and made enchiladas with it. I sauteed spinach and mushrooms and mixed them with the chicken and some enchilada sauce. That was the filling. I was using foods that Mike and I like and that more specifically would be gentle on my stomach. Then I rolled up the enchiladas and covered them with more enchilada sauce and cheese and some sliced tomatoes. I shouldn’t have used as much enchilada sauce because it was WAY too spicy.
We roasted vegetables and I made our favorite Chi Chi’s Corn Cake !

We have leftovers for dinner tonight. I’m going to try overcooking the enchiladas a bit to make them more crispy tonight and maybe since it will be sitting in the fridge, the sauce won’t be as strong. Fingers crossed!
Do you remember Chi Chi’s restaurant? It was seriously my favorite Mexican restaurant. I would go there ALL the time! I would beg my parents for us to go there. We celebrated numerous pictures there. I remember they would put a sombrero on you and bring out fried ice cream for dessert and take a family picture! It was so much fun. I also remember, I guess it was on Friday night’s, Melissa and I would sing karaoke. It really was fun. I was devastated when Chi Chi’s closed. I always hope, wish and pray that one day it will come back. It really was the best atmosphere and had great food. I think it would do well if it were open now. One can dream
Oh and if you haven’t had a chance, check out Google today! They are celebrating Maurice Sendak’s 85th birthday with images from his book! I used to love “Where the Wild Things Are!” So fun!
Have a great Monday!
