Rafe and I have been moving into our apartment all weekend, and I'm pretty much exhausted from all the craziness! Luckily, our kitchen is all set up and I'll be ready to cook in time for dinner. The sooner we smell food coming from the kitchen, the sooner it will feel like home! (I'll share pictures as soon as we're all set-up!!)
It's no secret that Rafe and I loooove tacos, so this meal is one that we'll have to make in these first few weeks in our new place. It's a standard ground meat taco, however, instead of making use of the grocery store taco kit we instead utilized ingredients with fewer preservatives like sodium, and various un-pronouncable ingredients.
I browned some ground turkey in the pan along with a diced jalapeno. I added a hefty tablespoon of the seasoning to the meat and stirred to combine.
I hit up Whole Foods where I knew I could find some preservative-free taco shells.
I read the ingredients and confirmed that I knew and could pronounce all of them.
After I warmed the shells in the oven, we assembled our tacos. I took one for the team and made a 'tostada' with the inevitable broken shell.
Topped with cheese, lettuce, chopped tomatoes and guacomole, and paired with our favorite Pale-Ale - this was a fun and somewhat healthier taco than most.
Yep - these are going on the menu plan for this week!
We're still without hot water - so if you could think good thoughts that would make the gas company actually show up for their appointment we'd really appreciate it! (Don't worry- we've been showering at Rafe's mom's house!)
