Today’s Menu: Turkey and Black Bean Tacos

 

 

To start the day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a high of 71 degrees with rain showers in the morning and heavy rain moving in overnight. This morning I took Mom to Jungle Jim’s International Market. She wanted to get some Half- Runner Green Beans, Peppers, and some Apples. I picked up a few other items. I love that store! They had a few of the Boar’s Head Meats on sale and in the Seafood Dept. they had Orange Roughy on sale. There is so much to see in that store! It’s Taco Tuesday here! For Dinner tonight I prepared Turkey and Black Bean Tacos.

 

When making Turkey Tacos I always use Jennie -O Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added 1 can Bush’s Chili Black Beans, 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 3/4 cup Water, continued to cook and stir for an additional 6 minutes. Jennie -O and Old El Paso together make some fine Tacos!

 

For toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce (my favorite), Sliced Jalapenos, and Shredded Lettuce. For my Taco Shells I used the Old El Paso Stand N’ Stuff Taco Shells (Whole Grain Corn). Add the Turkey and you got you some mouth watering and delicious Tacos! Love these Taco Meal Nights. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

The Saboscrivner

The Saboscrivner is a librarian who writes about food in Orlando, Florida, and beyond. I was inspired by Chew, a brilliant, bizarre, food-obsessed comic book series about characters with food-related super powers. Creators John Layman and Rob Guillory introduced their saboscrivner in Chew #3 with a description: "[A saboscrivner] can write about food so accurately, so vividly and with such precision – people get the actual sensation of taste when reading about the meals [he] writes about."
