When life throws you a curveball, eat tacos!
It’s been an amazing (albeit intense) week! We celebrated the U.S.’s birthday, I had a couple of meetings to go to, my thesis is in full swing, (I’m starting to write the thing, oh my!) we ventured down in a hot and sticky car to Fayetteville NC, we saw the new animated movie Brave, (go see it! It’s fantastic!) we baked cakes and muffins, and did lots and lots of swimming in Maddie’s mom’s pool. We had lots of good talks with Mom (Maddie’s Mom) that made us all feel good (serious girl time! No boys allowed! Poo!) And I got to hang out with Maddie’s super rad little sister, Lorelei. At the age of 7, she’s super fun to be around and I had a blast playing checkers, painting, coloring, watching Madagascar and Spongebob (yay! My favorites!) and playing mermaids in the pool. All in all it’s been a busy, jam packed few days that have been both beautiful and full!
So when we finally swung into Carrboro last night, Beans the Wonder Rabbit in tow, we were tired and hungry to boot. So what did we do?
Walked up to our local taco truck and brought home a vegan feast! We adore this truck and the ladies who run it all but know our exact order. (Usually 2 veggie burritos, no cheese, Maddie’s with no onions) they use the freshest ingredients including crunchy lettuce, ripe tomatoes, and fresh cilantro. They also have the best green sauce in the world. (The vibrant green on the bottom right)
We dunked and dipped and poured and slathered our burritos, tacos, and sope with all of the delicious salsas shown above. Benefits of working at a burrito joint? I think yes. All of the other salsas are from my own place of work and they’re all handmade and fantastic.
We watched our show of the moment, Twin Peaks, on the Netflix and feasted on our authentic Mexican goodies. Between work, family time, fun, and our impending move (yes, yes, we’re moving August 1! Eek! So rapidly approaching!) this was a much welcomed break in the form of deliciousness that made us happy as well as full!
What’s your go to meal when time is short and bellies are empty?
