THIS is how I do Fish Fridays.  HIGH FIVE!

Hello Hello! Happy Happy Friday! Got Friday night plans? I’m out and about, dress shopping for my little ones because tonight they are attending a Father-Daughter Dance. ☺

Can you just guess what that means for me?!
YEP! 3 hours of doing laundry, wiping down the furniture, and a bottle of Chardonnay.  You jelly, yet?

So I’m kind of having a moment with tacos, lately, and you can bet that I can turn anything into a taco – they are almost always my go-to when I have a bunch of leftovers in the fridge. What better than throwing last night’s dinner extras into a flour tortilla? Exactly! Which is also how this recipe happened.

I had no intentions in sharing our salmon dinner with you because I didn’t like the pics – #foodbloggerproblems – but the next day I felt all better, and once the tacos came to mind, I had my camera all up in their face. It was a very happy moment. #foodbloggerswillunderstand

  1. Made these for dinner. Fast and tasty. My husband ate his wrap style. I used the mini tortillas. Next time…and there will be a next time…will kick up the chili powder a little.
