Yay! I get a taco!

Does everybody know what day it is?

Nope. It’s not Friday. Sorry, Jeni.

Nope. It’s not Monday. That was yesterday’s problem.

Want a hint?

That’s right! It’s Taco Tuesday!

Taco Tuesday is on regular rotation at Chez Peady and we always enjoy it. Sometimes the tacos are fancy, with my scrumptious – if I do say so myself – (and I do!) homemade guacamole. Sometimes it’s as basic as following the directions on a taco kit (name brand or otherwise). Sometimes they are filled with beef. Other times it’s chicken. Slow cooked or roasted. Simple and delicious. Even fish tacos are a hit ’round here! We just love tacos.

We try to change it up a little bit each time, so that we don’t grow tired of our Taco Tuesday tradition. There’re so many ways that a simple meal can be made interesting, and tacos are perfect for customization. From the fillings to the shells, to the toppings and the sauces, there’s a myriad of ways to make tacos – and to make them fun!

Tonight’s beef tacos were awesome! Nothing too fancy, but the ingredients were fresh, everyone was looking forward to dinner together, and everything turned out just right.

 

I think next Taco Tuesday we’ll try a vegetarian version made with Chickpeas. I know Thing 1 and Thing 2 will give them a try and very likely will enjoy them.

They’ll try anything! They’ve yet to turn up their noses at a single taco trick. From Beer Battered Haddock to Spaghetti*, from beef to books about the topic, I say “Tacos!” and they say “Si!” How lucky are we?

Thursday needs a kick in the pants!

And so do I!

Butt Kick. Swift.

You might be surprised how often Calvin & Hobbes could be credited with giving me the best life advice and spiritual guidance.

Remember way back* in the beginning of this blog how I swore I’d be better. I’d be kinder to myself and I would improve my life in as many ways as possible, not the least of which being my fitness level and over all health? Mmm hmm.

Easier said than done**.

My feet have been rather stOOpid*** of late and that has made walking difficult – forget any attempt at a C25k program which I really, really want to do. I have decent shoes, I have orthotics, I am really good about remembering to stretch before starting my day. Despite my best efforts and plans, my left foot is being a complete and utter jerk. It hurts. A lot.

So much so, that I have not walked, for fitness sake, with my NS BFF all week. Not good.

But that’s no biggie, you might be thinking, there are LOTS of things you can do for exercise without your feet.

It’s true. There are.

Have I been doing those things? No. No I haven’t.

I have been having a bit of a pity party. “Pity? Party of one?” *raises hand* Ugh.

It happens. It’s okay. I’m over it. It’s time to kick into gear.

Thank goodness I have friends who support and love me – just the way I am.

Thank goodness I have a husband who loves me, laughs at my jokes, tolerates the awful puns and always makes me feel like I can do whatever I want (even when I am not so sure).

Thank goodness both of the above have wicked awesome senses of humour and willingly share their own “funny ha ha” as often as possible.

 

 

 

Guess what’s for dinner tonight at Chez Peady!

Not even kidding.

 

Oh, and don’t worry, I promise you I’ll “earn” mine.
