Last night was another successful Taco Tuesday!
Included in our buffet of taco ingredients were:
- Shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- Organic Sour Cream
- Vegetarian beans
- Sauteed sweet peppers and mushrooms
- Chopped tomato
- Guacamole Hummus
- Hot salsa
- Tortilla Chips
First, I washed and chopped some fresh veggies that I picked up at Trader Joes over the weekend:
These mini sweet peppers rule! They are so delicious.
I sauteed the veggies in some olive oil and fresh garlic and seasoned with salt and pepper
Next I made some Spanish inspired rice by using leftover brown rice Andy had made the other night.
In the rice went:
- Cilantro (dry)
- Chili Powder
- Taco Seasoning
- Black Pepper
- Garlic Powder
I also heated up a can of refried vegetarian beans in the microwave. We were going to have leftover chicken that Andy had made, but unfortunately we left it in the oven (which was off) overnight and for the whole day. Since neither of us are into food poisoning we decided to forgo the chicken. Vegetarian Taco Tuesday it was! 🙂
I made another taco pile for my dinner:
My eyes were bigger than my stomach tonight and I ate only about half of my pile! Or perhaps I was saving room for ice cream…which we got later 😉
This sour cream was absolutely the star of Taco Tuesday. It’s probably the best store bought I’ve had! Full fat sour cream also makes a difference in my opinion. The low fat or fat free is bland. Full fat is where it’s at! 🙂
After dinner Andy and I headed to Half Price Books. I am in need of beach reading material when I head to the beach this weekend for a week.
I ended up getting a few books (I even got one for $1!) and so did Andy. It was a successful trip!
After our book purchases we headed to Jerry’s Dari for ice cream. Andy and I both share a passion for ice cream and I love it.
What a dream boat
We each got flurries, which are basically blizzards. They were amazing as always. Andy got Oreo and I got Oreo and Reese Cup mixed together, which is only the best combination ever!
By the time we got home it was nearly 10pm which is bedtime for this grandma.
This morning started out with a walk with Boo and Sophia. It was not nearly as hot as Monday, which was nice. But that didn’t stop Sophia from collapsing on the patio to cool down:
Boo also was looking for some shade:
I was perfectly content since I was wearing my favorite pair of shorts:
Andy wanted me to clarify that he doesn’t hate these shorts (I said he did the other day) but he just likes to make fun of them because I literally live in them. OK, glad we cleared that up. Andy’s reputation is not ruined and he’s still the nicest guy in the world 🙂
I will wear these until they are falling apart…which I hope is not any time soon!
Do you have any clothing that you wear over and over again?
Do you eat full fat, reduced fat, or fat free dairy products? I like to eat mostly full fat, especially cheese and sour cream. However, I do like low fat milk!
