Taco Tuesday - July.

So yeah, July. That was awhile ago already, eh? Oh well, better late than never I suppose. In trying to remember what even happened last month I realized that there was SO much. There was Camille's beautiful wedding up at the Pleasantdale Chateau, a Weird Al concert at the Count Basie Theatre, a trip to my old stomping grounds the PNC Bank Arts Center to see Marilyn Manson and the Smashing Pumpkins, friends who came to town, birthdays, beach days and more than a few BBQs. Maybe that's where the time went and why it's more than halfway through August as I write this. Anyway, here's a look at July's recipes: 

  • July 7 - Esquite (Mexican corn salad) tacos with black beans, pico de gallo and cotija cheese. (pictured) 
  • July 14 - Spicy teriyaki tempeh tacos with avocado mash and pickled vegetables. 
  • July 21 - Slow roasted tomato and white bean tacos with sweet onion jam, fresh mozzarella and basil. 
  • July 28 - Eggplant bacon tacos with lettuce, tomato and sriracha cashew mayo. 

You'll notice that the week of July 14 links to The Purple Carrot. My trainer, Marc got me into them recently. They provide raw, pre-measured ingredients and recipes for vegan meals and snacks and they didn't even pay me to plug them. But seriously, worth checking out.
