Making tacos from scratch. Well, not really, the corn tortillas are pre-made, but I am frying them. I told husband that I'm making Mexican food the way my mother did it. This was before it became popular anywhere else besides out west. This week is tacos, next week will be her version of burritos.

I'm whacked. I did evenings last night and day shift today. Its cool and windy, so no BBQ. I might do some pasta or something that doesn't require a lot of effort. All I want is a glass of wine and a waiter!

Couldn't get my sorry self to the farmer's market this weekend or even to the Tuesday afternoon market today, which I am sure they hold just for those in the slow lane like me. I burped the tupperware lids and made leftover leftovers and rounded it out with a salad with some tomatoes.

Long day - skipped breakfast, missed lunch. Did Chinese takeout -- Honey walnut shrimp, chicken/zucchini/mushrom stir-fry, fried rice & a noodle. Had some vegetable potstickers (at home) I added to the mix.
