Weekly Bits:: 8


Bought:: Supplies to make DIY coasters
  • A friend of mine made me a set of coasters for my birthday last year that I am obsessed with. I quickly learned how to make the coasters myself and gifted several sets to friends and family last Christmas. A high school friend of mine came home from the Marines last week, so I plan to make a set to mail to him and his wife this weekend. Stay tuned for a DIY post on how to make coasters!
Watched:: Chasing Life
  • I honestly haven't been watching much TV since the big move, but the new season of Chasing Life started this week, so I couldn't miss it. I loved season one and I can already tell season two is going to be full of drama!

Listened To:: Serial Podcast
  • I had never listened to a podcast before, but, over the weekend, a friend recommended the idea to improve my daily commute to work.  I wasn't opposed, and immediately after starting the first episode of Serial, I was hooked. It's like listening to an episode of Dateline...only better! I can't wait for season 2 to be released this fall.
Made:: Beef Enchiladas
  • I have kind of made up my own beef enchilada recipe over the course of the past few years (that tends to happen when you are a picky eater like me), and it has become one of Michael's favorite meals. Here is my recipe:
    • Cook ground beef in a skillet, then mix in the packet of taco seasoning, can of re-fried beans, some shredded cheese, and half of the can of enchilada sauce. 
    • Fill the tortillas with the beef mix and roll them up in a baking dish. 
    • Once all the tortillas are in the baking dish, pour the remainder of the enchilada sauce over top of the tortillas and sprinkle with cheese. 
    • Bake at 350 until the cheese on top is fully melted.
    • Enjoy!
      • 1 lb ground beef
      • 1 packet taco seasoning
      • 1 can re-fried beans
      • 1 can red enchilada sauce
      • Soft tortillas
      • Shredded cheese
Sincerely,


Emily Ann

  1. You already finished Serial?! Have you found any others you like to listen to next? I've never heard of Chasing Life, I'll have to check it out.

    1. I did already finish it...commuting 10 hours a week easily allows for 12 short episodes. I've started listening to Undisclosed which is just a follow up to the case that Serial followed. I probably won't listen to it continuously like I did Serial though.
