Taco Night

by Meghann on November 20, 2011

Maddie is wiped.

We dropped her off at doggie camp yesterday morning and she could barely keep her eyes open when we picked her up earlier this evening. The good news is she came home with top marks on her report. Apparently she’s a good eater, plays well with others, and easily bonds with every counselor. I’m so proud. :)

Tacos were on the menu for dinner tonight.

Part 1: Veggies

Part 3: Tortillas

(I picked these up today, but wasn’t a fan. They fell apart before either Derek or I had a chance to take our first taco bites. eh.)

Part 4: Cheese :)

Done. It was a veggie heavy meal, which is exactly what I was going for. :)

My mind was dead set on Monica’s No-Bake Protein Pie for dessert. It’s hard to say no to a 4-ingedient pumpkin pie recipe with ‘no-bake’ in the title.

Only I added chocolate chips to mine. It needed a little somethin’-somethin’.

Mmmm…. pumpkin pie.

I was impatient and didn’t let it refrigerate first, so my piece wasn’t the prettiest coming out, but that didn’t stop it from being tasty.

The texture and flavor reminded me more of a pumpkin pudding pie than anything else. It was good, but still missing something. Maybe more chocolate drizzled on top?! ;)

Derek and I just started Captain America. I’m crossing my fingers Chris Evans keeps his shirt off the entire movie. A girl can dream, right? ;)

Good Night!

Those tacos look so good with all those different veggies! And more chocolate always makes things better!

your tacos look great! i love mixing pudding mix and plain chobani … especially the cheesecake flavor. to me, it takes on a consistency similar to cheesecake which really makes it taste similar!

I thought Captain America looked super lame, but I ended up loving it. It’s a fun movie!*

I love no bake stuff, and usually such recipes involve refrigerating for an hour. That’s too long for me.

Those tacos look delicious! It’s a refreshing change from the bright yellow fried taco shells and greasy meat that I usually think about when I dream of tacos. I’m going to have to recreate these soon, Texas girl style. :)

I haven’t had Mexican food in far too long. I’m thinking tacos or enchiladas in the near future…

Maddie is adorable all cuddled under the blanket. My dog is the same way – so snuggly. :)

Mmm, tacos sounds yummy! I saw those tortillas too and were super intrigued by them, but I ending up taking home the multigrain ones, which held together just fine. I’m bummed yours didn’t :-/ they sounded so good! My guy has been buggin to see Captain America! He brought home The Green Lantern (which was supa good) I’m thinkin another hero movie wouldn’t be so bad :)

I’m guessing pie probably needed some spices. To me pumpkin pie isn’t pumpkin pie without some cinnamon, cloves, and ginger.
