Sometimes, eating healthfully at home gets boring, so we need to mix it up a bit! That’s where Taco Tuesdays come in… they’re really a general term for fajita, taco, anything mildly similar…
This Tuesday, we bought some big spelt wraps at Whole Foods, as the regular corn tortilla wraps weren’t available. And they were pretty crappy, they fell apart as soon as you bent them slightly (important to have a wrap that can bend without ripping, when you’re wrapping your food!)
But anyway. Dinner turned out very good, regardless!
We went for two proteins, prawns cooked in taco seasoning and bavette in a chili and garlic sauce. After smoking out the kitchen and our lungs, Andre left the beef to sit for five minutes, before delicately slicing it.
As the weather was still good, we were obviously going to sit outside… but had too many bits and pieces to put them all on the table… so we put the most important, the prawns, beef, guacamole and salsa, on the table, and the rest on a side table.
What else did we have? Sauteed onions and peppers (what you would typically put in your fajita), some Greek yogurt (sometimes we use this to cool the spicy dishes down… or add Siracha to it for a little creamy spice!), some shredded lettuce, some coriander, and a roast corn/mushroom mix.
Of all the bits and pieces, I’d say that the winners this week were definitely the steak and the corn/mushroom mix.
Check out my “taco,” it’s not like I even put too much food into the wrap and that’s why it broke apart… psh. But what a delicious dinner!
