Make-Your-Own Tacos Night

by Courtney on September 6, 2010

**NOTE: This post was supposed to publish earlier this afternoon, but we came home to find our internet was not working! Now that it’s back, here ya go…just a little way late!**

Happy Labor Day weekend everyone! This weekend has been SO BUSY, I feel like I’ll be playing catch-up until the middle of next week! Let’s see what we’ve missed…

Friday night’s dinner was a Make-Your-Own Tacos night with our friends Joe & Kate. :)

Complete with all the fix-ins…lettuce, tomato, cheese, salsa, sour cream, seasoned ground turkey, soft & hard tacos

A delicious Fiesta Bean dip that Kate brought over. HOLY MOLY this stuff was fantastic!!

Of course, some homemade healthified guacamole was included devoured. ;)

And a few beverages to round out the meal. These seemed an appropriate match for the night. ;)

My plate: 2 soft tacos with a little bit of everything, guac & bean dip on the side, dipped with some Lime flavored Food Should Taste Good chips.

I actually ended up taking all the fillings out of the shells because they were kind of bland, so it was more like a taco salad which was perfectly fine with me!

I wish I had time for more, but we are headed out to celebrate with some friends and family on this beautiful September day. I love the crispness in the air today…it’s screaming FALL!! :mrgreen: So much so, that I just had to get myself a delicious pumpkin coffee while we were out earlier. It was fantastic.

Aaaand, I just made myself a quick veggie sandwich of lettuce, tomato, & cukes, spread with The Laughing Cow Light Swiss cheese, on the most amazing whole wheat bread. We picked it up earlier today on our trip to check out The Fresh Market.

…and we’re out the door again!

I’ll catch you guys up a little more throughout the weekend. Hope you’re having a GREAT day!!!

Question for the Day:

What are you doing, if anything, to celebrate this Labor Day weekend??
