Now, I don’t take spanish. In fact, I haven’t taken Spanish since the 6th grade. A good 6 years. This does not stop me from loving some delicious mexican food though.

Taco Salad


  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Sweet Corn
  • Broccoli (not normal, but a favorite veggie of mine)
  • Tomatoes
  • Carrots
  • Spicy Refried Beans

Spicy Quesedilla


  • 2 La Tortilla Wraps
  • 1/2 Tomato thinly sliced
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Trader Joe’s Smooth & Creamy Spicy Hummus

P.S. A lot of you asked about the gums in my previous post. Go to Deb’s blog where she explains all about them.
