Family Dinner Wednesdays: Fajitas!

Mexican is probably one of my favorite categories of food*. Scratch that- authentic Mexican.

*Excluding all the healthy smealthy stuff I weirdly love.

There’s so much you can do with it, but unfortunately, where I live a truly delicious Mexican restaurant is a hard find. At school, it’s a little better but a solution for every day is make at home. Maybe I’m just not looking in the right places but if I can fix it at home, then why go out. If I can’t get authentic homemade fluffy toritillas at a restaurant, home wins for a Mexican feast. Because sometimes, home>restaurant (sometimes).

So last Wednesday, we cooked up a little dinner of fajitas and rice. Our fajitas were loaded with peppers of an array of colors and spiced up with onions and HOT salsa.

It was a delicious dinner that left us satisfied but still with room for a little treat.

Cupcakes! (this one’s German Chocolate

So for a nice little meal, cut up some chicken, cook until no longer pink. Add in your peppers and onions and when chicken is cooked and veggies are softened, add in your seasonings per instructions.

Warm up your tortillas and serve alongside rice or black beans or whatever you please!

Tonight’s dinner: an Italian feast… I’ll share next week!

Family Dinner: Chili and Cornbread

In February, you think that chili would be a perfect meal for a mid-week day, you know because it’s supposed to be cold and all.

Last Wednesday was in the 60’s and quite warm. Don’t get me wrong, it was a beautiful day but I was kinda craving the bitter cold to go with our family dinner of chili. But only for that one day thank you very much. However, our chili was delicious even though it didn’t go with the weather.

We made it in the crockpot so really all we did was open cans of beans, corn, tomatoes, and green chilis, chop up a pepper and an onion and throw in a can of seasoning mix.

The cornbread was baked right before dinner and served as the perfect accompaniment.

Even though most of my meals are home-cooked creations, there’s something about these feasts that are so appetizing

So today I’m looking forward to our family dinner of fajitas tonight as the end to a really crazy day so stayed tuned for that adventure.

And then I’m half way through the week! 🙂

Anything getting you through the day?
