It’s starting to feel HOT, HOT, HOT down here in the Carolinas! We’ve got 67* and climbing. And sun!
I went for a glorious run at 11:30. I ran for 60 minutes on the dot – door to door. I LOVED breaking a springtime sweat. My legs were just starting to get tired when I came home – I probably could have gone a few more miles, but an hour was enough for today.
For some reason the thought of a Taco Salad popped into my head and I got really excited about it in the shower when I thought about how many ingredients I had to put on it.
Including some tortilla chips, jalapeno style!! At the Food Should Taste Good website, looks like you can get a $1 off coupon!
These were delish. Corny with a hint of spice. And I loved the red color.
We didn’t have any black beans so I opened a can of pinto beans – only to remember we had ground beef to use up in the fridge! D’oh!!! So I mixed them together. This was about 1 oz of beef, 1/4 cup pinto beans, 4 mini peppers and a cup of cabbage all cooked with cumin and chili powder. Toppings included 1/4 cup cheese, avocado, a big dollop of greek yogurt and a bed of baby spinach.
With a seltzer. The taco salad was quite filling, but it’s almost an hour later and I’m already feeling a little empty. This could mean an earlier snack so hopefully I won’t spoil my dinner!
I might go get my haircut. I’m undecided! It’s SO nice out that I’ve got my laptop near the patio door instead of typing at my desktop in the dark shadows.
