I did a lot of repeats today to get rid of leftovers. I’ve had a lot of tacos in the past 10 days but I’m really enjoying the corn tortillas. I’ve never had them before and have always used flour tortillas. Also, I really like avocado & all of the tacos call for them. Here’s my Pineapple Avocado Tacos. I found these canned pinapples from Whole Foods. This is the best canned pineapple I’ve ever had. One can is enough for 6 Tacos. It has just the pineapple in it’s juice & nothing else.
I made the black bean tacos for the first time. I do not care for canned beans. If you have time use dried beans. Here’s a tip: Put a teaspoon of baking soda in the water with the beans when you soak them overnight. Also, when you boil the beans add a bay leaf. The baking soda really softens the skins of the beans and the bay leaf adds some depth of flavor.
I enjoyed the black beans but I modified the recipe.
I was on the phone with my sister (Hi Cindy!) and then realized it was almost 6 and I had to make dinner. I mashed up the beans with cumin. I mixed the avocado with store bought fresh salsa, lime juice & cilantro. Then I topped it with shredded lettuce. My husband got cheese on his 3 tacos.
I had to make the Cinnamon Walnut Apple Crisp again. My husband smelled it the night before and really wanted it. So I made 2 of them. I sprinkled sugar on his.
I did 45 minutes on the treadmill to work off the extra chocolate from the day before.
I might have to make the popcorn tonight for a snack. I’m excited for the Real Housewives Beverly Hills reunion. I love the drama!
