Baked Fajita Taquitos (IN EGG ROLLS)

These Baked Fajita Taquitos were a HUGE hit with my family.
  The bonus is that they are baked & wrapped in Egg Roll Wraps which makes them a bit healthier than the typical Taquito.

TAQ- Finale

Onions are not favored in our home and so they did not make the ingredient list however these Taquitos can be filled with any Mexican favorites of those surrounding the table to partake.



Carlsbad Strawberry Farm

A fixture along Interstate 5 in Carlsbad, California – the Carlsbad Strawberry Company has owned the farmland that can be seen from the freeway since 1948. 


This local farm sells Strawberries at Farmer’s Markets around San Diego County, packages and sells them commercially by Aviara Farms, AND even better there is an area open to the public as “U-Pick”.

When in season this Farm is on my “San Diego Favorites” List.

Date Night ~ Paint Night

Blog Paint 001For my birthday one of my mother-in-laws gifted me with a Paint Night Gift Certificate for my husband and myself.

Neither.  Of.  Us.  Are.  Artists.  Not even close.  We can not even stay in the lines when we color with our three year old.

We quickly found out that we did not need to be artists to create something we actually liked; all the while laughing our way through a fun date.



So Cal Baton LogoIt’s been a while since I ran relay in track…

However, like riding a bike you never really forget how to pass and hold on to a baton, right?  Scratch that.  Those handoffs do take a lot of practice. 

Fortunately, the baton I’m holding today is all about covering some Southern California ground while taking photos and posting them on Instagram…  SHEW!!

Julie over at Girl on the Move is hosting the SoCal Baton and today is my day to share some of the San Diego area via photos.  I plan to carry the SoCal Baton to two of my favorite locations to view America’s Finest City and maybe I’ll stop in at a couple other of my favorite places along the way.
