Saturday was the first home game of the season and this year I was able to buy tickets to all the home games. Yay!! I did some cool tailgating with some senior boys. Not that the word "senior" means anything, they were J's roommates. But anyway so tailgating, fries from McDonald's, Nachos at the stadium, and Tiger Football. A Saturday can't get any better than that, well ... usually. Except for the fact the it rained for the first half of the game and needless to say I had no rain gear to speak of. I was okay with that because most of the kids in the student section didn't have ponchos, until the wind started to blow. Rain on a Saturday night when its 80 degrees out doesn't sound so bad, but when it feels like a breezy 70 it gets kinda cold. We played Vanderbilt and were winning so I decided to leave the game in the 3rd quarter. J stayed behind and we scored an additional 2 touchdowns bringing the final score to 23 - 9. I have to say, football is soooo much more interesting in person than it is on t.v.

P.S. I graduated high school with Jordan Jefferson so if he ever makes it that will be pretty cool.

So I told you I'd say what J and I made with our fresh bell peppers. Well ... we made fajitas! I really never was one to eat fajitas with peppers and onions. I'd just pick out the chicken and put that on my tortilla. I have recently come to enjoy a cooked pepper as long as it still has a bite to it. So we boiled the chicken and then cut it into strips. Then we browned it in some olive oil. Once the chicken was done we took it out the pan and put in the peppers and onions. You sautae those until they are soft and then add the chicken back in. Then we added the fajita seasoning (following the directions on the package) and stirred for a few minutes. Voila you have fresh peppers fajitas! It was soooo good but we only had enough leftovers for each of us to have one the next night. Oh well, better some then none!

Hope you enjoy as much as I did,

Farmer's Market

So, yesterday J and I went to the local farmer's market. I was really looking forward to fresh fruit, in particular peaches, but there weren't any. As a matter of fact there was no fruit but I wasn't about to walk away from my first farmer's market empty handed. I'd decided that I wanted to buy so local produce so J and I could make a nice meal. I bought a basket of different types of peppers and J bought 2 small loafs of ciabatta bread.

We debated a while about what to make and finally decided, but you'll have to check back tomorrow to find out.

Happy Shopper,
