I love our family meals. It takes work to plan, but the result is great. We really do enjoy eating together more.
Monday, Ben worked late, so we had leftovers, but Tuesday I made Crunchy Turkey Tacos…

It’s one of the few things I make from memory. When Ben and I started dating, he would make me a lot of tacos when we were just hanging out at his house. I expected them to be the crunchy shell kind because that’s what I had growing up, but they were always just corn tortilla warmed up with fillings. I learned to love tacos in warmed up corn tortillas, but I am partial to the crunchy shell kind when it comes to ground turkey tacos. According to Ben, those crunchy shells aren’t authentic Mexican food.
For Wednesday’s dinner we had Garlic Soba Noodles

Another yummy tofu dish. My changes to the recipe was to add cayenne pepper to the breading that went on the tofu for Ben and me. Told you we like that spice. I wasn’t generous with the oil like the recipe says because we were try to practice moderation. And I didn’t use garlic powder, but instead sauteed the spinach in minced garlic. This is another definitely making again soon dish. We all loved it.
The dishes I choose and make have all been pretty easy and have not taken more than 30-40 minutes of active prep time. Trust me, I am a busy mama and I don’t have all day to be in the kitchen.
We have enough leftovers to last the rest of the week and actually I won’t be here for dinner tomorrow because I will be at the Daily Buzz Style event at the Madewell in Century City tomorrow. If anyone local bloggers want to attend, send your RSVP to The event is a private party from 7-9pm Thursday night! If you go, let me know as it would be fun to meet you!!!
