A few years back, Justin and I decided we wanted to eat a little healthier. So, we decided that once a week we would have vegetarian dinners. At this point in time, quinoa was a huge fad. I decided to give it a go, but I was unsure how Justin would feel about quinoa tacos…
I made it and held my breath as I told him what dinner was when he got home from work. But, after one taco, he ate a second. Then a third. He loved it. He liked the texture and the flavor. We had a healthy Mexican recipe!
I grew up loving tuna sandwiches. I don’t know what it is about it…I just did. I could even smell it from quite far away …. but then again, it’s fish, so anyone could. My dad was the only other person in my family who enjoyed tuna. When I went to college, a roommate of mine boiled some egg noodles, poured tuna, sour cream, and peas in the pot and mixed it all up. I was intrigued. I had never had anything like it and I loved it! She told me it was a simplified version of tuna casserole. So, I came to love tuna casserole!

Justin grew up with homemade waffles. I did not–I grew up with Eggo Waffles and I loved them! We’d get all the flavors: Homestyle, Blueberry, Chocolatey Chip….you name it. I’d have them toasted for breakfast, defrosted for lunch, even frozen as a snack! Since I married Justin, I haven’t had any Eggo Waffles, deferring to his homemade ones instead. But, when I heard that the Eggo Waffles food truck (and we all know Justin and I love food trucks) is coming to the DFW area, I immediately fell back to my childhood love of Eggo Waffles!
Justin and I are going to the Eggo Waffles food truck on Saturday, May 27th from 3-6pm at the Grapevine Walmart. We are so stoked! We’ve been to waffle-based food trucks in Utah, so we are excited to see the dominating “Leggo my Eggo” Eggo Waffle food truck in action!! The Eggo Waffle Bar Truck will move a total of 200 times over 100+ days. If you are in the DFW area, the food truck will be here until the end of September, so definitely see if you can find one near you (it’ll also be heading towards the Houston, Austin, and San Antonio areas).
Tater tots are some fo the best things in the world. Seriously. I love eating any tater tot. McDonalds and Chick-fil-a have amazing tots for breakfast. And, Sonic’s tots are to die for…especially their chili cheese tots (they were one of my favorite cravings when I was pregnant with Rhys).
I was recently craving tots…no I’m not pregnant. But, I didn’t want to have just plain old tots. I also really wanted shepherd’s pie. So, I decided to make shepherd’s pie with tots.
When I was a kid, I remember my mom making it a lot. I would always eat the inside first and save the tots and cheese for the last. Best for last after all. I was super excited to make this recipe for me and my boys.
Justin really enjoyed it, as did Rhys. He typically doesn’t enjoy the texture of tots–he loves fries, but doesn’t like hashbrowns or tots. But, Rhys ate his entire portion of tator tot casserole.
The first time I ever had lettuce wraps was when my roommates took me to P.F. Changs. It was so delicious and crisp. It is now one of my favorite appetizers to get whenever I go to Chinese restaurants. But, I always figured it was super difficult to make, like every other Chinese dish.
Justin is also always begging me for “greasy Chinese food.” But, 1) I don’t want to spend the money and 2) I don’t want the greasy part. And now that it’s getting warmer, I start craving more fresh and crisp foods, like lettuce!
So, after researching numerous recipes, I realized that I could make lettuce wraps very easily and very quickly. Looking at what ingredients I already had in my kitchen, I came up with this super easy recipe for lettuce wraps. The best part of this entire recipe? It’s only 3 steps!
