Tuesday Thyme: Tri-Tip Fajitas

We are big fans of fajitas so this one was definitely a hit. I loved that it had avocado in it to give it a fresh kick. I just love everything with avocado. You can freeze the sliced onions and bell pepper to make a quicker prep time next time you make this. And you will make this a next time.

It is bad to read your blog when one is on a diet.

Sounds like you have had a rough couple of weeks! Sometimes when it rains it pours and if you make it through ok you might even look back on this time with fondness (not that you want to do it again). And you'll recognize how it's given you a different perspective on life and a new found strength.

It was great to see you guys last week or whenever it was...time is already getting confusing for me and I don't see that improving once i'm up 3 + times with a baby each night :)
