Good morning! I hope you’re doing your weekend dance. Mine looks like this:
Fun fact: I did gymnastics until I was about 15, and still have a few tricks up my sleeve. Too bad I ditched that purple leotard, though.
Another lifelong skill of mine: assembling the perfect taco. I remember my siblings and I would get pretty excited when my mom had taco night at our house! My big thing back in the day was re-creating Taco Bell’s double-decker at home: One hard shell, a layer of refried beans, and then a soft shell.
We didn’t get quite as fancy with the shells last night, but I still think our tacos beat Taco Bell
Before:After:The lineup: chicken marinated in this sauce, plus lots of bell peppers and onions. We cooked everything on a cast iron skillet over the grill — perhaps that makes these more like fajitas, instead of tacos? Whatever you call them, they were good. We tend to go overboard on toppings. Lots of napkins required.In other news, Anthony and I are still going strong(ish) on our non-alcoholic weeknight goal! I mixed this Mexican soda with plain seltzer water for something fun to drink on the side.
But today is Friday. Countdown to cocktail hour!
- What sports did you play as a kid? Softball, dance, and volleyball.
- How often do you drink during the week? We’re trying to steer clear of booze Monday-Thursday!
- Favorite throwback menu item from Taco Bell? I was also a big fan of the taco pizza, crunchwrap supreme, bean burrito, and the cinnamon twists. So basically the entire menu.
