Today is a big day around my neck of the woods. As in moving day!
A day I thought would never come.
I am one of those people that likes to cut things close. As much as I am a planner, I always leave things to do until its time. As in, getting primped for the day. When is the latest time I can start to shower and get ready so I can walk straight out the door? It drives my husband crazy as he loves to be early places (as in, 5 minutes early is on time to him) and to me, on time is on time or maybe a few minutes late is on time. What can I say, time management has never been my strong suit.
So with moving this week, I did not want to start packing our house until I had to. I work from home, so living and crawling over boxes stressed me out. Because you know that one box that Mr HIT had to tape up, and throw on the bottom of them all, is the one that I need that blue pen from. I have already ripped open countless boxes to only not find what I am looking forward. I am not sure if I am doing more damage than not?
Luckily, today is the day I can start to unravel those boxes and we can start to establish a life in a much more efficient house. The kitchen, the garage, the backyard! We couldn’t be more excited for all the space we moving in to; as in 3x the amount we previously had! Plus not to mention the dreamy kitchen with a massive walk in pantry and more counter space and cabinets than I will know what to do with. Music to my little ears.
But let’s eat some tacos! It’s very clear my love of Cinco de Mayo so it would have be injustice on my behalf to go without giving you a well rounded meal to indulge in. While I can be completely satisfied making my meal salty tortilla chips with a good smooth, salsa and gooey queso, these tacos have quickly become a favorite in our house!
Sweet, spicy and savory all in one bite. And you really thought I was done experimenting with chile spiced pineapple? Well it’s back! And I don’t think you will mind. I mean. We loved it so shouldn’t everyone? Hoping!
These tacos are quick to whip up as chicken tenders are seared on the stove top with lots of lime juice, chile powder, cumin and coriander. Loads of flavor going on here. The best part of experimenting in the kitchen is layering your flavors. A key factor to ensuring your dish will not disappoint!
To finish the tacos up, lightly charred peppers are added in with some black beans and purple cabbage for crunch and color. I love the black beans for the earthiness they provide. Top these tacos off with the chile spiced pineapple guacamole from last week, pour yourself a skinny coconut margarita and you are well on your way to one flavorful fiesta!
