Grilled Zucchini and Corn Tacos

Grilled Zucchini and Corn Tacos by Natalie Paramore

Confession time: we don’t eat tacos that much. Well, besides breakfast tacos. I haven’t been able to full transition BMW to the Austin lifestyle quite yet. He still isn’t the biggest fan of Mexican food and especially not Tex-Mex. Which drives me mad because Mexican food and Tex-Mex are basically like just food to me. I grew up in Texas so we ate tacos, in many different forms, all the time. And I still love when I order at a restaurant and they just bring a thing of tortillas. Oh you ordered enchiladas? Here are some tortillas. Salad? I mean why not. Fresh corn tortillas are some my favorite things ever. Finding them can be tough though. When I do make tacos at home we typically opt for flour. Anyways, I was thrilled when BMW actually liked these veggies tacos! I mean they were vegetarian AND tacos, so I really feel accomplished y’all. Getting my picky Midwest raised BF to get on board with anything besides meat and potatoes can be a struggle. So I am pumped to share these with you!

Summer Mint and Pea Pesto

Summer Mint and Pea Pesto by Natalie Paramore

Summer time in most places means lots and lots of fresh herbs! And in Austin, that was the case for me until we left for China during twelve of the hottest days this summer– ack! I came home to what looked the scorched earth. I’m sorry Mr. Purple Jalapeño Plant! Lucky for you, the local farms are much better at tending their herb gardens than I am and you can still find lots of fresh and fragrant bunches of herbs on stands. I even picked up a load of basil two days ago! While I have my, lets call it, lack of enthusiasm for summer, its just too dang hot for me y’all, there are still plenty of good things to behold! Like fresh mint! And fresh peas! And this lovely, flavorful pesto!

Smoky Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Smoky Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps Recipe_Natalie Paramore

This is one of those recipes I’ve been keeping from y’all! It’s weird because usually I share my favorite ones right away! Since BMW and I work from home we typically make our lunch everyday. Usually something pretty quick but delicious and satisfying nonetheless! At least, when I look forward to lunch then I’m not as tempted to grab something quick or order takeout. Although that certainly does happen. If you’re trying to eat lean or looking for a quick weeknight dinner, then this is it! Less than 30 minutes, maybe even less than that!
