{halibut tacos + roast corn salad}


Today kicks off day #1 of the Trader Joe’s recipe round-up!  And it only makes sense that we start with tacos!  Not just any plain ol tacos.

Halibut Tacos!

With a roasted corn salad on the side.

And how about a can of pinto beans?  That’s Bay’s fave.  With a touch of cotija cheese over the top!  Yummm!

Halibut is hands down (or should I say hands up in the air waving like I just don’t care) my favorite fish.  And I NEVER buy it.  It is a little pricey, but 100 worth it.  I vow to make halibut appear on my dinner rotation more!

You know what would go good with these halibut tacos?  One of my Skinny, Skinny Margs from {friday 5}.  Make dos to be safe and make some tacos tonight!


Real quick –

Asking for prayers!

I’m currently at Alliance Redwoods with Bay’s 6th grade class for their week long trip.  Me + 7 tweens in a cabin.  No wine.  No wifi.  No nothing.  Pray.  Pray hard, K!

Ok, and now back to our regularly scheduled taco talk……
