Sorry if I got a song stuck in your head.
It's been a really wonderful week. Mothers Day was lovely. Calm. Peaceful. My heart is still and grateful for the sons I have here. I am also grateful for the one waiting for me in heaven.
After a crazy season of 'scrimpin' & pinchin' I am proud to say my culinary skills are getting more and more creative. I am looking at my pantry with more in my repertoire. I am seeing past the crisper in my fridge and gazing at a spice rack that is brimming with possibilities.
I had asked Joel last week to bring home some potatoes from the market. He was pumped about how cheap he got them. The next day I was planning to do loaded baked potatoes and a salad bar and noticed something: These Potatoes are ALL rotten! (No wonder how cheap they were!)
I threw the soft, green little guys away and had to start over. I didn't want to do 'just salad' so I gazed into the fridge. Trying to be creative. Trying to be inventive. Using love in what I make for my family.
I saw bacon....lettuce....tomatoes and thought: BLT's! Perfect. 'Cept that we're sick of BLT's. So, i put a spin on it and stuck them on tortillas on a bed of couscous and sauteed onions. Spicy brown mustard and Avacado top the open-faced soft taco and voila! No joke....Joel told me this is now one of his all time favorite dinners....I just had to laugh!
