Before we get to the tacos, I want to share quite possibly the best pancakes ever. Whole Wheat Blueberry Banana Pancakes. They are definitely as good as they sound! Yesterday morning we were making our usual Saturday pancakes (well, the boy made the pancakes...gotta give him the credit!) and he decided to throw in one whole smashed banana and about a cup of frozen blueberries to the batter.
The addition of the banana made for a really moist batch and the blueberries provided a nice little pop of flavor. In the past I usually just use bananas and blueberries as toppings, rather than mixing them in, and I have to say I like my pancakes better this way.
Tacos. Quite possibly one of the easiest and most delicious dishes ever. My love for tacos has already been proclaimed here on this little blog and with this recipe, I've grown to adore them even more. I was feeling particularly lazy yesterday and didn't feel like putting a whole lot of effort into my dinner. I scanned my fridge and found some blue corn tortillas and a sweet potato. I questioned the combination but I knew it would be easy and in my state of laziness, easy=apealing. Now, I've seen tacos made with mashed sweet potatoes but never roasted. I simply washed and cut up one organic sweet potato, roasted it in the oven with a bit of olive oil at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes, and threw them into the tortilla topped with a little salsa.
The verdict? Good! I was a little weary, thinking these might royally suck, but they were truly delicious. I would have also used some spinach and maybe a little cheese but our fridge was bare bones yesterday and I just had to make do. These are a great option for lunch or dinner and I bet you could even roll these up and stick them in the oven, creating a darn good enchilada. Ohhhhh the options are endless!
