I’ve been feeling in a big rut lately food-wise, so on Saturday, Matt and I decided to mix things up. Enter: TACO NIGHT!!!
I hadn’t had tacos in FOREVER and they’re so fun to make. Plus, I always crave Mexican food when it starts getting warm out :)
We cooked lean ground turkey with homemade taco seasoning, heated up some whole wheat tortillas, and assembled all sorts of fun toppings — avocado, tomato, red pepper, chopped spinach, cheese, and of course hot sauce and salsa :)
Deeeelish! We also enjoyed Trader Joe’s version of Corona — with a lime wedge, of course!
Since we all know I heart leftovers, I turned the remaining ground turkey and toppings into a huge salad for lunch yesterday at school!
I filled a big tupperware 3/4 of the way with salad, then added in the leftover ground turkey, chopped tomato and red pepper, avocado, grated cheese, and some cracked pepper.
For a “dressing”, I packed a little container of salsa!
Is that not the cutest container ever? Kaoru, a blog reader and DC blogger that came to my fun LA Boxing fANNEtastic reader meet up last summer, sent it to me as part of a sweet care package a couple weeks ago! :)
In other news — did you glimpse the pretty pink flowers poking out from behind my salad? Apparently the tree outside our porch thinks it’s spring. I’ll take it! :)
I’m off to school and then coming home to study Biochem alllllllll day long. Biochem = my arch nemesis. Sigh. We have a test on Friday and I’m far from ready for it. :(
Catch you guys later!
