My Skinny Mexican Dinner Comes together

Hi Everyone,

I am so happy it’s Friday!  What a long and crazy week.  I worked late again on Thursday, which is just killing me.  I am just happy to be home and Friday is a half day!  Woohoo!!  This week you may have noticed a slight theme with my posts, it all seems to be Mexican.  This past Sunday I made my yummy Mexican dinner and this week I thought I would give you bits and pieces of it, well now you can see it all together.

I started the week out with my wonderful flank steak!  Thank you everyone on twitter who suggested it!  It was perfect the night I made it and the next night too!

I served my flank steaks on my homemade Flour Tortilla Shells.  I made those a while ago, but there such a hit I made them again!!

I also made my homemade guacamole which was fantastic!  I am so happy I could eat it!  I really thought I was allergic to avocados.

I used my guacamole in my portion control 6 Layer Taco Dip!  I love this stuff I could eat it all, lucky I portion controlled it!

Of course you get my homemade tortilla chips!!!  So simple and easy to make!

I loved my dinner this week, and I made it a few days in a row!   I can so eat Mexican everyday!!!

Your probably thinking, ya, ya, we saw that this week and you’re wondering what the giveaway is.  Well hold on my dears, first look what I got this week!

I finally signed up for the CSA!  I got my very first box on Wednesday morning.  I was very pleased, everything was crisp, fresh and organic.  Not to bad for $15.00!  So with that, my giveaway is perfect!

I received not one, not two, but three Salad Spinners from OXO for me to giveaway!  They  actually sent me an extra shipment by mistake, and when I contacted them, they were nice enough to tell me to keep them.  I want to let you know that OXO has not paid me or asked me to tell you anything.  These products were free from them and all they ask for is my honest opinion of the product.  So with that said, I thought I would give the Salad Spinner a Spin.

First I washed my lettuce that I got from the CSA and put it in the Salad Spinner.

Just push down on the handle and give a spin.

Ta da!  After a few spins my lettuce was dry!

You can use the bowl for serving your salad or you can put the lid back on and store in the refrigerator.  I would have done that, but I didn’t have any room in there.  It’s to loaded with all my fruits and vegetables.

I really liked this product!  It will come in handy for my farmers market produce. Oh and it says you add berries to it and give it a spin.  I plan on trying that next, since I buy so many berries!

To enter, all you have to do is tell me your favorite kind of salad!

5 Additional chances to win:  Oh and be sure you tell me you did this.

The giveaway ends on Monday, April 30th, at 4pm (PST).  I’ll pick 3 winners through and announce the winner on Tuesday, May 1st.  Sorry, US only.

Hasta la vista baby!  😉

Have a wonderful weekend!!!
