This week we went heavy on the Mexican food, and I wasn't even thinking about Cinco de Mayo.

*I'm in LOVE with these creamy chicken taquitos. (Thanks Jodi for the link) And so is Dave b/c he fought me for them on the last day of leftovers.

*We also made Empanda's. The weight watchers version. Here's another version, but i used the wonton wrappers instead. Just as great.

*I'm reading In Defense of Food, with a critical eye, of course. But it's very intriguing how our food has evolved through science. Makes that yogurt/pudding stuff that sites on the shelf kind of creepy.

*In response to the book, I read a blog post pointing out some alternative thoughts on the issues and the movie Food Inc. as well. I'm looking forward to reading more about farmers who are operating their farms sustainably and ethically. And some other follow-ups.

*This weekend is yard weekend and getting the garden ready, but who knows if the weather is going to cooperate. I'm liking this article though on what to plant in the garden to keep bugs out.

Have a great Mother's Day weekend all you Mama's out there. Hopefully your family gives you some much deserved accolades.
