test kitchen sunday

Hi friends, how's your Monday treating you?  I've been so busy that I've not had time to blog. I really wanted to share the pictures from my Sunday. Did I tell you my son purchased a taco truck?  Years of Urban Planning and he wants to make tacos.  Go figure. 

Our afternoon was filled with shopping at the farmers market and then it was time for Daniel to give my son a cooking lesson in making carnitas for the taco truck. Daniel is an excellent cook. He ran a successful restaurant in Mexico for years. He said a restaurant demands the same love and attention as a young child.  My kitchen was filled with aromas of carnitas, frijoles del oja, cilantro/lime rice, salsa picosa, onions, cilantro and guacamole.  I even made an agua de melon (cantelope water).

I took lots of pictures to share and then I decided... no need to torture you with food porn. I logged my calories from yesterday's taste testing and was astonished that 3 tacos were nearly 700 calories.  Yikes. I am in love with my fitness pal app by-the-way. I love that I can scan ingredients...

Today is my first day back to my workout routine.  Walking a noon and zumba in the evening. I've been sidelined almost 2 weeks due to my asthma.  Dontcha just hate missing your workouts when  you're sick?

well, better get back to work. I'm on a short break. Have a great day all.


  1. how you feeling?
    how was work??

    all that :-)

  2. Carla, thank you for asking. Bless your heart. Work has been crazy. Still trying to find a balance with working in two offices. I'm learning balance but some days it's crazy. It's part of the reason I'm not able to blog on a regular. Love your pics of you and your lil tornado. She's the cutest.
