Taco Chicken Wraps + Shopping Spree

Look at this beauty from my CSA box this week!:


Oh how I love watermelon. We had plenty of other delicious items in our CSA box this week, including both butternut and spaghetti squash, eggplant, tomatoes, broccoli, and yellow beans.


Taco Chicken Wraps

Recipe from Taste of Home

I found this this recipe recently and it looked so easy that I had to try it. In a bowl, I assembled the filling by mixing:

  • Chunk White Chicken (9.75 oz can, drained) <-such a time-saving ingredient!
  • Jalapeno (from my pre-minced frozen supply, courtesy of my parents’ garden!)
  • Cumin
  • Shredded Cheddar
  • Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies


I combined the filling ingredients, spooned into tortillas (I used these 60-calorie ones), wrapped and baked for 15 minutes.


I served the Taco Chicken Wraps with a can of black bean soup (thanks Deb!) and a salad.


Another evening this week, we got our Biercamp Brat fix! The huz picked up a pack of Cheddar Jalapeno Brats and popped them on the grill, while I prepped delicata squash, broccoli, and yellow beans as side dishes. Biercamp treated us to a fun little variety of beef sticks, of which the huz and I each had half. These were yummy! My favorite was a sweet-tasting one – possibly teriyaki? And it goes without saying that the brats were, as always, amazing.


This weekend I had a serious hankering to go shopping. I had lots of various items that I’ve been meaning to return – some shoes, a bathing suit, and a couple tops – and those items ended up adding up to $235 back in my pocket, so I went on a bit of a spree! I got these adorbs gray Nine West flats with bows from Von Maur, and some flat black leather Madden Girl boots from Famous Footwear.


TONS of jewelry deals!!! I bought one necklace at Von Maur, three more at Express, as well as two pairs of earrings and a bracelet – everything was over 50% off!


Clothes, clothes, clothes.



A few of my favorite coordinated ensembles:


Orange is such a popular color this season – I want more.



Yes, I temporarily departed from food blogging to fashion blogging. Back next time with more food, mmkay!? Have a good one.
