Four a Year?

So what does one do with an absurd amount of leftover grilled peppers, onions, and chicken from their Monday night BBQ?  Eat the exact same wrap for dinner two nights in a row, that’s what.

All rolled up, rolled up poorly, but rolled up nonetheless.  After a few minutes of fighting with the smoke detector and throwing some windows open, I had some lovely roasted Yukon Gold potatoes seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt, and black pepper on the side.

It was one of those wraps that you can’t put down once you start eating for fear that it will fall apart, but it was delicious.  It’s been a long time since I roasted any kind of potato that wasn’t a sweet potato, so this was a nice change.

I had every intention of going to the gym tonight and getting my first run since Cherry Blossom over with, but after an hour and a half appointment at the lady doctor getting poked, prodded, and scolded (yeah, yeah I know the HPV vaccine is important) I was starving and just wanted to go home.  Luckily I did escape without having to step on a scale, they trusted me to tell my weight honestly, ha.  I guessed, and rounded up slightly from what I was 9 months ago.

Side note, this doctor was intent on switching me to the period every three months birth control pill.  This was after I explained the horrible PMS symptoms I develop about 2 weeks before that time of the month every month.  I was like ok well one, I don’t want to feel like that for three months at a time, two I am neurotic enough, I don’t need to worry about whether or not I’m knocked up every month because I haven’t gotten a period.  Needless to say, I walked out with two months sample of a lower hormone dosage that will still give me a period every month.

Anyway, the roommates and I are off to the Phils/Nats game tonight, don’t worry Col I will be wearing my Phillies gear or wait should I wear a Flyers shirt and Phillies hat since they have their first playoff game tonight?  Then tomorrow we’re off to NYC.  The month of April is seriously flying by, I can’t believe Dar will be here in two weeks!  I guess that’s what being super busy will do for ya.  Next weekend I’m heading home for Easter, and then he’ll be here, yay!  Well happy Thursday friends, have a good one.

  1. That looks like a good dinner to eat twice in a row!

  2. That wrap looks so good!

    I need to get to the doctor too. I won’t even tell you how long I’ve been avoiding it. Its shameful.

  3. The potatoes look goooood.
    Good luck with the new pill. I hope it helps.

  4. Glad you survivied the lady doctor…ugh!!

  5. Usually at about halfway through any wrap I make, I have to give up and take a fork to it. Sad. But still delicious.

    My smoke detector is sitting with the battery out of it on my coffee table for that same reason. Don’t tell…

  6. Ew, I hate the lady doctor too. I switched to a lower hormone pill over a year ago and then didn’t get my period for a year. That was fun 😉 My doctor didn’t warn me that that sometimes happens with low dose pills so I was really freaked out at first. Now I’m used to it and it’s kinda nice, actually. Just a warning in case this happens to you with your new pill! Remain calm! haha.

  7. I just tried that BC because my gyno pushed it. I think the drug reps must be pushing it like crazy. I was having the sex, so I wasn’t stressed, but I didn’t really like going that long without a period so I switched back. Now I’m all off schedule and it’s pissing me off.
    In short, good choice sticking to your guns.

  8. Your potatoes look awesome! I hope you like the new BC – I was a once/month girl for years – good for you for trying something new!

  9. My biggest fear is that I’ll be pregnant without knowing I’m pregnant and harm the baby (mostly from drinking) because I don’t know I’m pregnant.

    Needless to say the once every three months pill is not for me!
