These Quick Chicken Tinga Tacos with Lime Creme are fresh and bold. They look and taste like they could be from a restaurant, but come together in a few minutes on your stove top for the perfect weeknight meal. I used frozen leftover chicken along with tomatoes and chipoltes that were already diced to make this super easy!
In addition, I got to open up my Fiesta Roja Red Cabbage Curtido from Sobremesa that I found at a Vermont Farmer’s Market. They shipped their perfectly pickled products to me in Florida and I’ve been so excited to use them.

Welcome to the 4th post of Five on Friday. Every Friday I post a list the top five things that made me happy during the week. It could be anything from a new kitchen tool, new product, new food, recipe success, or maybe just a life event. No matter what it is, I share it with you here every Friday.
1 Compost, Cans, Cartons, and Markers-Last year my class was in charge of the compost bin at school. It was a big hit! I had a group of kiddos that would collect the lunch scraps from the cafeteria on a daily basis to add to the bins. I also had kids from other classes bring in scraps from home that they dropped off every morning. We are using the compost for the school garden which is conveniently located in front of my room.
This week I got to start showing my class how we can help the world and each other by teaching them about the compost and I have also hired my compost stirrers for the quarter. Yes, they must apply for the position. We also have added collecting aluminum cans for the homeless, egg cartons and dried out markers to help out my neighbor’s church. She has found a place to recycle them for money and it donating it to charity. It makes me so happy that I can share this with my class!
In a few months we will do our annual food drive to help out the local food pantry and a then a pet supply drive to benefit local animal shelters. It feels good to give and to teach other’s to give too!
2 Free Coffee-I love my coffee! I feel like every week I deserve to go to Starbucks in the morning and get myself a treat. I have the app with my card that I simply reload when I need to do so. When you spend a certain amount you get a free coffee. This week I had a free one! Woohoo! My new favorite treat is a venti coffee frappucino made with almond milk, and one pump of cinnamon. It isn’t too sweet and tastes like a frozen cookie with caffeine. No this post isn’t sponsored by Starbucks. I just think it’s tasty and it makes me happy, especially when it’s free! You should really try this!!!
3 Weekend Date Day-I am excited because Mr. Teacher and I get to sleep in on Saturday and then we are spending the day in Tampa. We even have tickets to see some monster trucks. I haven’t ever seen monster trucks live, but my dad would take me to demolition derbies and I didn’t hate it. So, I am happy to be getting out of town for the day,trying something new, and getting to spend time with Mr. Teacher. Who knows, maybe I can convenience him to stop in Sarasota to get a peanut butter pie from the Yoder’s Amish Restaurant. Finger’s crossed!
4 Free Chicken-My kitty Turbo hasn’t been feeling to well lately. I have been making him chicken just boiled in a little broth and I give him a little a few times a day. This week a good friend/teammate at work gave me a big container of chicken that her family wasn’t going to eat. Turbo gobbled it up! I broke it up into pieces and froze it so I can easily give him some chicken everyday. Thank you for making my baby happy!
5 Free Natural Coconut-This week one of friends at work gave me a bag of natural coconut she wasn’t planning on using. I do love coconut! As a thank you I’m making my No Bake Chocolate Coconut Bites to share. Click here for the recipe. They are addicting and easy. Oh and did I mention healthy too!

Welcome to the third post of Five on Friday. Every Friday I post a list the top five things that made me happy during the week. It could be anything from a new kitchen tool, new product, new food, recipe success, or maybe just a life event. No matter what it is, I share it with you here every Friday.
1 and 2 this week are combined. -I am so happy that this year I have an amazingly sweet class. I got to spend yesterday getting to know them. I am super excited to help them learn and grow this year. I am also very grateful that school started on a Thursday this week, so I can spend two days focusing on setting up the room, getting to know everyone, and teaching procedures before we actually start new lessons next week.
3-This week I ran to Publix for a few little things. I knew it was going to rain, but I thought I could be in and out quickly, however I was wrong. Just as I was checking out the clouds burst with rain. I was very grateful for the gentleman who works there. He watched my groceries, gave me an umbrella so I didn’t get soaked getting to my car, and loaded the groceries into my car for me. I know I have said it before, but this kind of customer service is wonderful and I love Publix!
Also, if you someone does go above and beyond to help you at Publix, please call and let the managers know. The reward the helpful person with food! Everyone loves to be appreciated and it only take a minute to call.
4-I am happy that I get both Saturday and Sunday off this week. Last week we had open house on Saturday and I am very tired!!! I can’t wait to sleep this weekend and go for a long run before breakfast.
5-School is back in session and I am so happy that I made some easy Curry Chicken Salad for lunch. It can be made in advance, it’s low-fat, is made with yogurt for extra protein and probiotics, it has a bit of sweetness from the grapes and a crunch from the almonds, and tastes amazing on crackers or a bed of lettuce. You can click on the link and it will take you right to the recipe so you can try it next week for yourself.
