Homemade goodness

Hallelujah! Yay for good food, good weekends and good health! This weekend was fun and kept me on my toes.  My toddler is going through a really fun exploratory phase and it's just great to see the world through his eyes.

Taco Tuesday II

Okay. I'm not gonna lie...these are not hard taco shells. These are actually corn tortillas 🙂 Oops! Yes, these Mission Tortillas did crumble a little and I did eventually have to break out my knife and fork... (of course my husband stuck it out with hands-only). BUT, these are so good! In these tacos (Mission …
