Happy Tuesday! How is everyone’s week going so far? My “actual” work week doesn’t start until tomorrow, but I have been very busy around the house. Monday’s and Tuesday’s are my “get your shit together” kind of days. I usually plan everything out for the week, coordinate Oliver’s schedule with my own, clean, shop, write blog posts, edit photos, and make dinner. That’s a lot for on top of watching a toddler, so when it comes to dinner, it must require little to no effort. Enter in this BLT Pasta. BLT’s were something I grew up eating every summer. The crispy bacon, juicy tomatoes, and perfectly toasty bread? So simple and so good. But as good as they are, this summer I wanted to switch it up. I wanted to make something we could enjoy as a family, and honestly, not toast a million slices of bread.
What better way to kick off the week than with some bomb ass enchiladas. These are good guys. Like, really freaking good. I feel like some things in life were just invented to indulge in. Ya know? Some things were just meant for your inner fat lady to come out and sing. Like these enchiladas. These enchiladas are extra cheesey, extra creamy, a little spicy, and a whole lot of addicting. They are at their best served with fresh tomatoes, avocados, charred sweet corn, and lots of fresh cilantro.
Loaded Sweet Potatoes. Happy Friday ya’ll! I feel like the weekends are totally meant for the “treat yo self” mentality. You’re finally free of work (hopefully), you’ve made fun plans to do something, whether thats to see friends, have a night out or to just relax and enjoy life. Unfortunately for us going out and having fun, isn’t an option right now due to the global pandemic. We’ve had to become really creative in what we can do around the house. Puzzles, bingeing Netflix, painting, and of course LOTS of cooking.
Tacos are all the rage right now, and I for one am totally okay with it. I’m always in search of some good a** tacos or on the hunt for a killer new recipe to try at home.
Tacos aren’t just for Tuesdays anymore guys.
In my search I stumbled upon these bad boys.
Mexican Street Corn Chicken Tacos.
Fried chicken. The Mother Teresa of the south. The Beyonce of soul food. The love of my life.
…okay maybe not the last one. But fried chicken is damn good, obviously, but wanna know what’s even better?
Nashville hot chicken.
Listen ya’ll this stuff is GOOD. So good, I’ve eaten it twice a day on more than one occasion (oops). So when I was actually in Nashville over the summer, of course I had to hunt down the best of the best. And let me just tell you. It was fire (literally and figuratively).
