3...2....1...

We move in exactly three days! Yipee!!

I think now we are up to 12 boxes... our tiny apartment is basically covered in cardboard and sterilite containers.

Today Kevin and I got out of bed early enough to try Kneader's French Toast. So delicious. It's bottomless, but we both struggled to finish one plate of the super-thick, decadent breakfast. If you live in Provo, you've definitely got to head over to Kneader's for breakfast!

Cleaning-out-the-fridge Nachos

Jessica's cleaning-out-the-fridge recipes are very creative and you would never be able to tell she was just cleaning out the fridge. They are moving the same week we are, but so far I've only made one such meal. Kevin claimed he wasn't in the mood for nachos, but he helped me finish them off so quickly there wasn't time to take a picture!

Cleaning-out-the-fridge Nachos:

Place desired amount of tortilla chips on a microwave-safe plate.
- You could even make your own by frying cut-up tortillas.
Shred desired amount of cheese and sprinkle on top of chips.
- I usually use cheddar, but we had Colby/Monterey Jack, and that was pretty tasty.
Microwave plate for 20-30 seconds to melt cheese.
Spread desired meat or protein on top of cheese.
- I sauteed one diced chicken breast in a little olive oil, and seasoned with lemon juice, chili powder and lemon pepper. However, you could shred any leftover chicken, cook some ground beef, steak, or whatever you wanted.
- Top with desired toppings. We just used salsa, but I also love diced green peppers, avocado and sour cream.
