Chicken Fajitas

Last week I had a never ending sore throat. It was enough to be annoying, but not enough that I was willing to call out of work sick so I spent my weekend napping and trying to feel better. It worked though! I am feeling so much better this week.

It just stinks because it was so nice and warm last weekend. I really wanted to enjoy another beach weekend before it got too cold. Maybe I’ll get lucky and we’ll have another nice weekend before it turns to winter.

I was getting annoyed with Anthony because I wasn’t feeling well and all I wanted him to do was take care of me and the house. He was not all about that. I was still doing most things until I got really mad and then he started to do more. He went grocery shopping by himself, which NEVER happens. I totally loved it though.

When Anthony goes grocery shopping he always comes up with ideas for dinner that I never would have thought of. Hence the chicken fajitas. They were very good though, so I can’t hate on him too much. And they’re super easy to make as a weeknight meal.
