I have 2 hours before midnight. I MUST do my Thursday post. LOL
Who doesn’t love taco night. I did my taco night a little bit different. I made a salad consisting of feta, celery, garden lettuce, shredded carrots, and garden tomatoes. Notice how I’m throwing in the word “garden” a lot. YES, we are finally getting food from all the lovely gardens in the area.
Now, when I cook the taco meat, after the meat is done and prior to throwing in the spice packet, I throw in a big carrot shredded and some kind of green. I have done arugula and spinach in the past. Today, I chopped up and used beet greens that I got at the farmers market yesterday. OK so this time I didn’t’ use the word garden, and instead used the word “Farmers Market”. Do you recognize a theme? : )
Lastly, the taco’s were filled with the salad mixture, the meat mixture, some extra chopped tomatoes, sour cream, and taco sauce. I have to have sour cream and taco sauce on my taco’s. What do you like to put on your taco’s?
When I was at the first farmers market of the season in a nearby town yesterday, one lady had some home bread. It’s called OatMeal Graham bread. Now, lately I haven’t been eating bread – but how could I pass up some homemade bread. I can’t tell you the last time I had homemade bread. Woops ok so I had some at a restaurant once, but you know what I mean. ; ). The lady told me it was a big family favorite. It’s so fresh and good. I made a breakfast sandwich out of it this morning. I cooked up a few eggs, threw in a couple salami slices, and some American Cheese. I also had a banana.
Lunch was a bit of a rush. It’s hot these days and I’ve been busy. I had to eat my lunch while getting ready for a conference call. I couldn’t even relax and had to eat it standing up. I had some left over potato salad, a couple of fresh strawberries that I got from the “Farmers Market”, and some pretzels. I also had MM”s tonight. I know, not so healthy. I can’t be perfect every Thursday. : ). I think that’s it. I didn’t keep track of absolutely everything. When I’m running around doing a million things, I forget things. But, all and all – that was my day today. Oh and the potato salad is a good one, it actually has roasted beets in it – which I would of never of thought to put into a salad.
