LOVED - recipe to come - must share Cinco de Mayo recipe today. :) After our fabulous breakfast, I just worked, took my lunch break to visit with Jennifer and her 5-week old baby boy Brady. He's such a little doll. I loved seeing her - such a natural mom and so happy, and meeting him. He even smiled and did the finger grip - eee! After my fun visit it was back to work, then to the grocery store and then me and Austin hit up the gym. I walked 1.5 miles at 4 mph and ran 1.5 miles at 6.3 mph, then did abs. HRM said: 53 minutes, 370 calories;16 fat-burning minutes and 37 fitness minutes; avg HR 140 and max HR: 179. Then we went home for a very, very mild cinco de mayo - I made a new recipe for the occasion.

These were amazing. So flavorful and tangy - we loved the kick. I'd never used chipotle peppers in adobo sauce - I can't wait to find more recipes with it. I've also never cooked with orange juice but it added such a nice citrus zing. I can't WAIT to eat the leftovers and to make this again - AMAZING! Check out the recipe on Healthified Kitchen! And yes, I made two My Bizzy Kitchen recipes today - I'm such a fan! I also made this one:
It's a Mexican Bake with Cilantro-Lime cream. This pic is dark, and sans cream. I'll definitely take another one with the cream on top!
Q: How did you celebrate Cinco De Mayo? We ate our tacos and each had a beer - we're SUCH rock stars.
Q: What's your favorite 'taco' ingredient? These were made with lots of great stuff like orange juice, yellow mustard and Worcestershire sauce. They're SERIOUSLY my fave - can't wait to eat them again! (and use this same mix for taco salads, in casseroles, etc.)
