life…a few bumps in the road. Lately it seems that it has been one bump after another. Enjoying the calm after Christmas. I took a couple of days off from work, originally planned to runaway with My Guy. But, his hiccup last week killed that idea. He spent 4 days in the Hospital and we still aren’t sure what happened. HICCUP…BURP ๐Ÿ™‚

This meant Iย  had a few days to work on projects at home and toย  even create few more. LOL. Let me share a few. For those of you new to Foodismyzen I moved it a few months ago. It was to be a complete move. Photos, Posts, Pages and a working Search. Well, you probably already know how well that worked out, not.ย  I will be working on getting the search to work and I’m still not sure about the Photo issue. I will also be setting up a Farmer”s Market slide show as I had done last year. Forward movement. Burps-Hiccups and all. Below is a pic of an idea of mine.

20130706_173259 A simple card(business size) that just reads FoodisMyZen.com

When I have conversations, or you know, the girl talk places it would be really simple to just have a card. Like I said it’s an idea.

Til next time….Enjoy those Burps in life ๐Ÿ™‚

after last week. Last week I did things. I have said I wouldn’t do anymore. Life happens. I drove at night and I did the Holiday shopping. I survived ๐Ÿ™‚ Now that My Guy is feeling better. He gets to wrap all the neat things I found. If I had it my way. Everything would be in cute bags ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s to a simple yummy dinner.

London Broil cooked to perfection….rare rested to medium.

Beautiful spiralized veggies. Zucchini, Carrot and Roma Tomato. Seasoned gently with some Garlic and Parmesan.

Have you ever noticed when purchasing a London Broil that they don’t seem to look very big, til you get home and start cooking it? I swear this was a small London Broil. We will be eating it for maybe 3 meals. Not sure what I will do with it this evening. But, I do promise to share whatever it is.

Til next time…..I am off to get the food for tomorrows lunch with the family.

Fast and yummy dinner…….
imageTacos: a Yummy crunchy comfort dinner.

1 lb. Good Quality Ground Meat, you choose. I had some lean good ground Beef.

1 pkt Taco Seasoning or your own blend.

Cook to directions on season packet or Brown meat, Rinse with hot water. Return to pan, add seasoning,add about 1/2 cup of water, stir well.Place a lid on the pan and lower the temperature to a low simmer. Until moisture is almost gone.

Tortillas: I have a terrific Mercado nearby. That meansย  “fresh Tortillas” YUM. You choose: Soft, Crunchy, Thick, Thin, Flour or Corn.

Now for the fun…….TOPPINGS

Tomatoes

Scallions

Lettuce

Jicama

Avocado

Sour Cream

Guacamole: mashedย  Avocado with Lime and Garlic. There are many variations on this. I just gave you the basic idea.

Jalapenos

You get the idea.ย  If it sounds good to you. Put it on the Taco ๐Ÿ™‚

til next time……..remember to “BREATHE” (I think I might be reminding myself)

for traditional LA style Carnitas……
image
Semi-Boneless Country Pork Ribs. Mexican Oregano, Garlic and Lime Juice. Simmer til it falls apart.

image
Serve with Corn Tortillas and Pico de Gallo.

FYI: There are so many different ways you can serve this simple meal. So many cuts of Pork you can use. One thing make sure the Pork has some fat. The meat can be used for everything from Tacos, Enchiladas, Tamales. My Kid would probably even put BBQ sauce on it ๐Ÿ™‚

Til next time……..Enjoy
