tonite i made tacos while madeira and sam swam in the pool outside the window. talk about a gift. . .to hear your husband and little girl having fun outside and then to have all of us sit around a table for dinner, such a treat when we have such busy lives all the time. we need to do it more. so i was thinking it would be fun to go to farmers market and buy fresh tomatoes, onions, peppers, cilantro, lime, lettuce etc and then add some tortillas and pre-grilled chicken and drop it off for a friend with a new baby or new house. . .so easy to chop up everything and have a really yummy fresh meal. i used avocado oil to heat the tortillas, usually, i just warm them the oven, but i was given this great oil at the la mart and i was feeling like being very authentic since it was fiesta this weekend in santa barbara. . .apparently avocado is the healthiest oil and has one of the highest smoke points, so it is safe to cook foods in, unlike other oils. i mixed a little light sour cream, fresh salsa and lime juice for the sauce and heated up some organic black beans, super yummy family dinner!
i am going to admit that in the photo above you will see one ingredient that just does not fit in, i goofed at the market and did not realize until i tasted it. . . if you figure it out and comment about it, i will send you a little gift! (look really close and guess fast or my mom will win!)
