On Sundays, we make breakfast.

Every Sunday I make potatoes, eggs and bacon for the boys. Every. Sunday.  How boring is that? I couldn’t stomach another Sunday of over easy eggs, roasted potatoes and bacon so I decided we needed to liven it up and give it a fresh new flavor.

Spicy Tacos with Avocado Lime Sauce

As I sit here in Ankeny, surrounded by chain restaurants and fast food joints I can’t help but wish I was eating these spicy shredded beef tacos with a side of avocado lime dressing.

Crockpot Fajita Shredded Chicken

I have spent the last 72 hours binge watching Food Network and Gossip Girl while I heal from surgery, and I just need to feel like I’m doing something productive. This blog post is about as active as I am allowed to be! I’ve never been very good at relaxing, and I’m not going to… Continue reading Crockpot Fajita Shredded Chicken
