Friday Potluck & Adobo Lime Chicken Tacos

There are some benefits to just having me and the fur babies in the house. If it’s a mess, it’s our mess. The grocery bill is MUCH lower than when K is home.

The bad things are that I have to shovel, keep his truck running (more of a challenge mentally and literally when it’s 20 below than you might think), and WORST OF ALL, I am responsible for consuming ALL leftovers. I’m good at eating the same thing two nights in a row, and maybe a lunch.

Beyond that, I can’t do it… but I always seem to convince myself that it’s doable and by the time I realize it isn’t, I have a collection of science experiments (and really cool colors) in tupperware in my fridge.


That’s my attempt at saying I’m not really bringing much to Friday Potluck. I made adobo lime chicken tacos this week, and just finished night #3 of them. They were amazing all three nights, especially since they are SO easy. With my pumped up work out schedule, I find that I want to go to bed much earlier, but still need to make sure I get enough protein … and calories in general.

  4. Your tacos sound delicious – I like the idea of the lime in them too. I’m sharing my Chicken in Mustard and Tarragon Sauce today. Have a lovely weekend.

  5. MM says:

    I agree on leftovers. Two nights are ok. By the third, I’m tired of it. Reading that you were still jazzed about these tacos on night 3 is high praise.

    Thanks for hosting!

  6. I am so sorry, I should have finished my coffee before posting…I did not mean to add the same thing I posted last week and there was no going back once I did it. You are welcome to delete my Parmesan-Herb Zucchini Sticks entry since I can’t. (ugh!) Thanks for hosting! I’ll make sure I’m awake next time! 🙂

  7. Hi Erin, I can’t imagine how cold -20 degrees can be. I hope it begins to warm up soon. I know I would feel the same way you do in your situation. Cooking sometimes is not high on the list when your schedule is tight.

    Thanks for hosting and I hope you stay warm : ),

    Thanks for hosting!!! I left some soup recipes to help you stay warm!

    I don’t know if I’ve ever seen adobo lime rub, but it sure sounds good! I understand when the cat’s away, the mouse eats leftovers. Glad you found something that you could eat 3 nights in a row. Those tacos do sound good! I’ve linked up my tostadas which were my leftovers when the cat left town. 🙂 Thanks for hosting.

  10. Kristin says:

    These tacos sound DELISH! And ohmigosh…I remember trying to get the car door open in -24 degrees after it had been snowing all night…damn near impossible. I miss Alaska but not the subzero temperatures!!!

  11. Sound delicious for this taco recipe! It’s make me so hungry! I can’t wait to eat this 🙂
