I know it’s not actually summer yet, but today’s sunshine could have fooled me. A wave of warmth hit my corner of the world this week and today’s temperatures were in the 80’s. Eighty glorious degrees – in March! Every window in the house was open, for the first time this year, and it felt so good. It’s not summer, but I can pretend anyway.
I know mother nature can be fickle and these warm days could tumble out as quickly as they sailed in. But whatever she has up her sleeve, I am going to enjoy every minute of the sunshine while it’s here. So with a warm breeze blowing through the kitchen, I put these Sweet Potato Quinoa Tacos on the dinner menu. And then, just to keep our summer dreams alive, we ate dinner outside.
With “superfoods” like Sweet Potatoes and Quinoa, these tacos are quite healthy. They are also so delicious that you quickly forget about healthy and just think “Yum!”. The smoky flavor and spice of the Chipotle Sauce is a perfect compliment to the Sweet Potatoes. I see a lot more of these tacos in my future – I just hope they come with more sunshine too!
