Memorial Day and then some

Hello!

I've missed blogging but I've been sick with a nasty head cold. They aren't kidding when they tell you to wash your hands multiple times a day in elementary school. Working with kindergarteners means TONS of hand-washing for me. (But apparently, I failed.)

My head is congested, nose sniffly and my body is tired. I'm not quite out of the woods yet but getting close. I spend Saturday night sniffling away at Andy's parents house in San Diego. We saw a Padre game and they won! YAY!

001

Earlier this week, I made some tacos using new product finds from Trader Joe's. I love that this pre-packaged seasoning had no MSG in it. The brand I used before did so I had to toss it.

002

Yes, I stole Caitlin's shot glass taco holder idea. Worked like a charm. Besides the oozing hot sauce.

003

We filled the taco shells with lean ground beef, hot sauce, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, diced tomatoes and guacamole.

004

We used this hot sauce. It's FABULOUS!

005

And had skinny margaritas. (Trader Joe's has an awesome mix and it's light in the sugar department. Check it out.)

006

Yesterday, I made us green protein smoothies. I figured some spinach might cure me. It was good! I am scared of green smoothies so I only added one cup of raw spinach.

010

Then it was time for a pool party and food! We heated up these baked black beans.

011

Brought out these dips.

012

Turned on the margarita machine. (This only comes out for special occasions!)

014

015

And had burgers, beans and margaritas while watching bad tv. Then we laid out by the pool with my sisters and friends. I am hoping to get some color without actually tanning this summer. It probably won't happen. I'm too paranoid about skin cancer, more freckles and weird tan lines.

How did you celebrate Memorial Day?

sounds like it was a good weekend!

I hope you're feeling better, though. Seems like something is going around lately!

It doesn't matter how much you wash your hands, you will still get sick in an elementary school! Hope you feel better soon!!

I had my first cheeseburger in probably over a year on Memorial Day and it was awesome!!

Hooray tacos! I just had tacos last night, yum! :D

I don't do the sunning thing either. I've got a ton of moles and am not risking getting something icky.

I just found your blog through Biz! Great blog, I love the photos! I love the shot glass thing with the tacos. I am often struggling for how to create the most appetizing photos. I have a blog with just recipes on it if you are interested, thanks!

Glad you gave the old green smoothie a try. Aren't they good? You can't even taste the spinach! Sounds like you had a nice memorial day. Hope you feel better soon!

I'm sorry you are sick! Kids are like little germ holders. I carry around some hand sanitizer and use it constantly.

Love the tacos! I just bought the Tader Joe's seasoning and can't wait to try it.

Thank you for making me feel better about my disastrous hair cut! I really appreciate all the kind words.

Glad that you feel better :)
I am so jealous of your margarita machine! What do you use in your margaritas ? (When you don't use your machine)
You really seriously cannot taste the spinach in green monsters, isn't it great? I added half a bag to mine this morning and it tasted like all the great fruit that I had in there!

OMG I feel your pain! when I used to student teach 1st graders, I was ALWAYS sick! they don't know what a tissue is, UNLESS they think it is their sleeves lol

Those tacos look muy bueno!

I miss chatting! I think I have to give you a phonecall =)

I hope you're feeling better! Ah! So jealous of all the amazing TJs products. They seriously make the best stuff. Love the idea of the "skinny" drinks. We went to brunch, relaxed and had a bbq with friends on memorial day, it was perfect

Hope you are feeling better by now!!

I actually found a sugar free apple martini mixer at Bed Bath & Beyond of all places - no calories or anything and it tastes so good! Of course, you have to add the calories of the vodka, but I tend not to "count" liquid, which I know is bad.

I'll have to check out those taco shells next time I am at TJ's!
