Look what I can do!

Thursday, February 06, 2014

Yesterday I challenged myself to put together a decent meal based on the sparse ingredients we have in our kitchen since SNOWmageddon has completely killed my desire to go grocery shopping. (And we didn't even get very much snow this week. I just can't handle winter anymore, and looking out my window is making me angrier and angrier.)

Anyway, after work and a quick sweat session on the treadmill (only 56 more days until my next half marathon!), I asked Clayton to defrost some chicken breasts because I was suddenly inspired to make chicken tacos.

Only we didn't have any taco seasoning ...

... or cheddar cheese ...

... and we certainly didn't have any tortilla shells.

But you know what we did have? A ton of spices in the cupboard, string cheese, and flour.

Clayton shredded the chicken breasts and cooked them in a skillet with a mixture of cumin, paprika, salt, pepper and a little bit of olive oil (the same mixture I use when I make lettuce wraps). I got to work making tortilla shells by mixing together flour, salt, water and baking soda to form dough. I separated the dough into small balls (heh.), rolled them into thin disks, and then fried the shells slightly on each side in a shallow skillet.

We cut up the leftover avocado I had from lunch, peeled some string cheese from the Super Bowl, and topped the chicken with sour cream I bought for a casserole last week.

Bada bing bada boom, we had chicken tacos!



 



What's on the menu for tonight? Pizza. We'll probably order a pizza.
