Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! I enjoyed getting disconnected from the internet a little too much. I thought it would help me catch up on some projects, but I still didn’t get anything done this weekend.
I’ve almost managed to get rid of all the packaged food in our house. The only processed food left is pretzels, cheerios and granola bars…and your occasional taco shells etc. Our snack food consists of dried fruit, nuts, seeds, and regular fruit. which is actually somewhat limiting to my family. Anything else has to be prepared, assembled, cooked or created. This puts an extra burden on me as the mom to try and come up with an answer to the constant, “I’m hungry”. Still looking for ways to make this easier.
I moved 100% away from ground beef in our tacos. I’m not opposed to ground beef, but I have not found a good sale on the 95% lean ground beef in a long time. The only affordable ground beef is 75% lean, and that is too high in fat for me.
So I crock-potted my black beans for a few hours, mashed them up, added taco seasoning and spooned it into our taco shells. Quick and easy meal.
Speaking of black beans…. I put out my first newsletter today (about black beans). Included is a coupon code for free shipping on any products in my store. If you don’t already subscribe, go to the homepage and sign up. If you didn’t get the newsletter today, you can view it here.
