Mi Casa Es Su Casa

Wanted to share a San Diego taqueria fave that you can make at home ~ Carne Asada Tortas with Chipotle Lime Avocado Crema & Cilantro Corn Salad

{for those of you who aren’t familiar, a torta is just a roll with carne asada rather than your typical vessel, the tortilla}

A carb is a carb is a carb.

Cilantro Corn Salad

Carne Asada marinade

{I used a 2-pound flank steak}

Chipotle Lime Avocado Crema ~ just mix some sour cream, one avocado, the juice of half a lime and one chipotle pepper in adobo, chopped ~ mash together with the back of a spoon

Torta rolls ~ Costco {thanks, Vicki!}


The leftover steak will go on a salad later in the week with this dressing…

Muy bueno!


Have a great week!

Nighty night.


Extraordinarily Ordinary

Just an ordinary ‘ol weekend around here…

Friday evening dance class

Dinner at Islands for some fish tacos & a veggie burger


Early Saturday morning run/walk

Trip to Trader Joe’s

Barbie Birthday Party


Holdy got a haircut from Daddy


This morning we went and signed this one up for t-ball…

The deal of the century ~ $60 gets you a hat, t-shirt, shorts, socks, team picture & trophy! Looking forward to Saturday morning games, fly balls and base running. Spring training coming soon…

Then I drug the family to the mall to pick up some flip flop bling at Claire’s. Note to self: go to Claire’s without dragging the family along.

After Claire’s we headed to Wendy’s drive-thru {love their chili…oh, and the frosties!} and headed to the park for lunch and some sun.

Whipped up these flops for Elliott’s teacher who’s celebrating a birthday tomorrow:

I love the way they turned out…so Springy!

We finally got new batteries for the Leap Frog Tag pen…reading Toy Story 3:

Nothing too exciting, but it was a nice {family} weekend despite the loss of an hour!

Enjoying the extra light this evening and grilling some TJ’s carne asada, onions and peppers…

Hope your weekend was {simply} extraordinary, too!
