Last night, I emailed Marlene and asked her for her recipe for chicken and cheese chimichangas so I could make them for dinner. She said that she uses this Pillsbury recipe. The recipe uses crescent rolls and is baked rather than fried.
The recipe was super easy to make, and I had Danny help me roll them up because he’s better at that kind of thing. I think this is a very versatile recipe – you could make them with chicken and cheese, or just cheese, or you could substitute the chicken for beef.
Today has been another one of those crazy days. Jaden was up a lot last night with ear pain. By the time I gave him Tylenol and got him settled down, I had a hard time falling back asleep. That meant I was very tired this morning. Luckily, my new coffee mug cheered me up.
Jaden was feeling better this morning, but I knew that he had an ear infection. He still went to school, and Danny called the doctor to get him an appointment. Our doctor’s office always keep the 11:15 am time slot open for emergencies. Since I knew he wouldn’t be getting into the doctor until later, I headed to the gym.

I finally signed Danny and I up for the Fitness Fantasy League at the gym this morning. It starts in the beginning of January and surprisingly only one other team has signed up so far! The lady in charge asked me to spread the word. She wasn’t sure of people weren’t signing up because they didn’t really understand how it works or because you have to pay to sign up. It cost Danny and I $28 to sign up because we’re not residents but the grand prize is worth $500, so it’s worth it to me!
Also, I guess it’s going to follow the rules similar to real fantasy football. I have no clue how real fantasy football works. At all. The lady explained to me that they would keep tally of how many times each team worked out each week. The team that worked out the most each week would get one point for that week. So, you could earn a total of 8 points since the program runs for 8 weeks.
Then, she said something about tie breakers and counting each workout, but she pretty much lost me there. All I know is that we’re signed up and I’m excited. Now, we just have to come up with a team name. Any suggestions?
After the gym, I stopped at home, grabbed a quick pre-workout breakfast and then picked up Jaden from school.
Apparently, he feels right at home at the doctor:
It turns out that he does have an ear infection and his allergies were acting up pretty bad. The doctor said that he could stay from school today, but he cried to go back to school. I figure that in a few years he’ll be crying to stay home from school, so I let him go back. The school said that as long as he’s not contagious, he’s fine to go back.
After dropping Jaden back off at school, I ran to the pharmacy to fill his prescriptions, and I grabbed a Amy’s pizza for lunch. Easy, delicious, and quick. I also had some carrots and cucumbers with hummus to help get my veggies in for the day.
I’m going to try to talk Danny into fro-yo tonight because the new peppermint stick flavor just came out! I love peppermint! Have a great afternoon!
