For breakfast I made a Snickers Protein Shake. I love making these shakes, especially when I have a craving for chocolate. Lunch was meatless tacos. The filling is a lentil mix that I actually really liked, the boys ate it and even had seconds, Matt ate it but I could tell it was not his favorite. I did add some black beans, which to original recipe did not call for. I like having different things to put in a tortilla. Fast and easy! I also posted a pic of another chicken mixture that is my new fav for tacos. I think I linked it in yesterday's blog. My Brother-in-Law gave me his recipe for Guacamole, holy wow!! It is mash avocado, shredded lettuce, cheese, and a guacamole spice pack. This was amazing! You can also add fresh tomato chopped.
|Uncooked tortillas are my favorite! They freeze well and I only make as many as I need.|
|This is to die for! Off of Katie's Blog and I could eat it everyday.|

Then this evening I decided to go to my happy place and make some goodies. I melted some chocolate and caramel. I am not a big caramel fan so making this fulfills my need to bake, but is not a temptation to eat. However, my husband loves Caramel stuff so he was in heaven. Bless him for being hot and sexy and never working at it. I did take one bite of a finished Graham and it was heavenly, even for a non-caramel lover like myself.
My first batch of chocolate went weird so what did I do with it? Add some heavy cream, of course, and make Truffles. The boys loved them. It took me a while to get the caramel sauce right, but it turn out smooth and fabulous for dipping. I made some caramel/chocolate graham crackers and pretzels. I will also dip some plain chocolate pretzels. Yum!!
