Hi guys! I hope you had great weekends. Ours was filled with lots of family time, work around the house, and good eats! First up: grilled tuna tacos on Friday night on our deck with Matt’s parents and our sister-in-law.
My father-in-law and I dreamed these up – we thought tacos would be fun, but wanted to do something a little more unique than usual tacos, so I thought seared tuna would be fun! Matt did a simple sear of the tuna on the grill, and the fillers included:
- Green chilies
- Pickled onions
- Greek yogurt sauce (plain Greek yogurt + lime juice + cilantro)
We will definitely make these again – easy and yummy! We did a mix of hard and soft tacos, plus some chips and salsa and guac to start.
I had leftover tacos for lunch on Saturday, and then for dinner we all did pizza. We ordered the pizza and a couple salad options from the pizza place, and then made a homemade caprese salad as well using some really good tomatoes from a farmer’s market at the beach last week. Summer tomatoes are the BEST. I need to hit a farmer’s market here to get some more good ones because caprese salads are such a great side in summer – so refreshing! Plus we can use the basil from our herb boxes. 🙂
After the salads, we enjoyed the pizza. We had leftover pizza so Matt and I had the rest of it last night with some homemade salads while watching the Handmaid’s Tale (so good but so intense). Yay for easy dinners!
As for yesterday’s lunch/brunch, Matt made a big feast for everyone at our place. It was a little too hot to sit outside this time… the humidity was coming back in full force by yesterday! We had scrambled eggs (with some sauteed veg), orange slices, bacon, and hash browns.
And that’s all I have for you today! My in-laws were in town to see my sister-in-law Morgana dance in a show (for those in DC who are interested, it’s the Capital Fringe Festival show Gilded, and she’s dancing the part of the “Rook”… we are seeing the show in a couple weeks when my mom is available to watch Riese and can’t wait!), and while they were here we took the opportunity to get a lot of projects done around the house. So not much went on besides some good eats and lots and lots of work at home! Matt and I did get out for a run on Saturday morning, though – just a low key run/walk with the dog while Riese was at home with her grandparents – and we did a nice long family walk on Sunday morning while his parents were out at church. Everyone enjoyed it. 🙂
Have a nice day guys!
What’s your favorite taco combination?
