Fajita's Postponed

Since Toly had a poker game this past Friday night, Friday night fajitas got postponed for tonight. I had all the ingredients and knew that I needed to use them up before they went bad so it was just a matter of throwing them all together into a beautiful Mexican creation.

I even surprised Toly by making his with some left over beef strips I had in the freezer (he hardly ever gets red meat but never complains about it because he knows I don't eat it).

I made mine loaded with veggies but of course. Peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, asparagus, and red onion all marinated in a fajita sauce (I can't remember the brand but it's very good and spicy). Heat a skillet so its nice and hot and throw in all the veggies and let them cook down for about 10-15 min. At the end, I threw in some black beans for some added protein.

I wasn't feeling the tortilla tonight and opted to make a big salad instead. Something about mixing everything together and eating this meal with a fork just appealed to me.

As a tasty little side dish, I threw together a corn and cherry tomato salad with feta and avocado. This went brilliant with the dish because I ended up mixing it all together with some salsa on a big plate and enjoyed every single bite.

The best part is the leftovers for tomorrow's lunch. I just love it when you can enjoy a good dish twice!

Now it's nearly time for bed and back to work tomorrow. Ugh! This week should be pretty routine for us, which I always love. My parents are coming over mid week for dinner so that will be a nice way to break up our schedule.
Does anyone have any big plans for the week? Hope that whatever you do, it's enjoyable!


  1. Yum!! I agree, I love it when you can bring leftovers from a great tasting dinner for lunch the next day : )

    Have a wonderful Monday!!

  2. I posted a comment on Andrea's blog right be below yours, and had to visit the blog of another Lauren! Your salad looks delicious - I love the combo of avocado, corn & tomato and the feta sounds like a great addition!
