Weekend Round Up and What I'm Crushing On
Hey guys! I wanted to let you know a few of the things that I am totally crushing on.
First, if you follow me on instagram, you saw I posted this picture.
These are the steaks marinating. I found the recipe here:

You guys——they were soooooooooo good. Living in Texas, I get to enjoy good steak tacos often, and these are the closest to cool hip tacos from a swag taco truck that I’ve found. The trick is to use the smear of green chile, the green onions, cilantro and avocados, along with the cheese. It’s heavenly. The only thing I did differently was to use Cotija cheese (it gives a nice bite). MMMMMMM. we’ve made them twice in the last 2 weeks. I of course used corn tortillas for myself so they were gluten free. Five stars for this recipe my friends!
Another recipe I tried this week was Quinoa Meatball Sliders.

This was another hit with the family. I boiled my quinoa with beef broth to add to the meaty flavor. I had mine on Udi’s bread. I think the next time I make them I will use an italian seasoning mixture versus just the parsley to spice them up a bit. 3 out of 4 boys in my family ate them, so we will for sure add them to our repertoire.
If you didn’t notice, we were really living it up with pinterest recipes this week. LOL. Here is another one we tried. Only half the kids liked it, so I probably won’t make it again. That said, it was a good recipe. Quick and Easy. My kids are just weird and picky. I adored the grilled pineapple.
