Hello everyone! I had a few things to share with you today. Have y'all ever tried those "ready to cook" flour tortillas at the store? They are just raw tortillas that you cook in your skillet for about 30 seconds on each side. Life changing, y'all! They taste just like the kind you get at a restaurant. We'll never go back to those "off the shelf" tortillas. :) Here's a pic of the fajitas we made recently with the ready to cook tortillas...

I shared the above pic on Instagram (@texasdecor) and apparently I'm not the only one who thinks they're great. :) I bought these at my local HEB, but I've seen other brands at Walmart, etc. They're usually in the same section with the refrigerated crescent rolls.

On a recent shopping trip, I got this Capri Sun Super V free. It was one of those "buy this, get that free" promotions. Anyway, I brought it home to see if my boys would like it and they did! I like to think it's a little bit healthier than regular juice boxes because it has vegetable juice in it along with 3 grams of fiber per pouch. Everyone thinks it tastes just like regular punch, but I like that it has a little extra nutrition. We like the fruit punch flavor, but it also comes in apple and berry. 

I got the ol' teepee out for Holly again the other day. She LOVES that thing! She'll hang out in there all day long. Lol! Can you see her? So glad I kept it after my kids outgrew it. :) 

In other news, I'm thinking of getting this pedometer from Walmart...

I really want to make sure I'm walking 10,000 steps a day. I know the Fitbit is all the rage right now, but Meemaw here doesn't want to pay that much for one and the main thing is that I CAN'T STAND for something to be on my wrist constantly. :) I really just want to know how many steps I'm taking. I don't need something to sync up to my iPhone and tell me all kinds of other stuff. At least now right now. Of course, I've been known to change my mind, so I might spring for a more expensive one in the future, but for now, I'm thinking this basic model will do. 

I know I could get a pedometer app for my phone, but I don't want to have to keep my phone in my pocket all day long either. Do y'all have a pedometer or a Fitbit? What do you like or not like about it?

I know I've shared my EASY CROCKPOT POTATO SOUP RECIPE before, but sometimes I actually make "real" potato soup. The worst part of making real potato soup, to me, is peeling all those potatoes, but now I just use my apple peeler to do the job. I just remove the coring blade. It peels one potato in about 5 seconds. 

So much easier!

Well, I've been at it again. I spent a long time the other day switching things up on my kitchen buffet. I can't seem to leave this thing alone lately. :) 

I had to share this pic because I went all "fancy" with my coffee the other day. :) I made homemade froth and added chocolate shavings. 

homemade coffee froth

To make homemade froth, just put milk (2% or less works best, the lower the fat content, the better) in a container with a lid (I put about 2-3 tablespoons in a mason jar and be sure to leave room for the milk to expand when it heats) and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds. Then remove the lid and microwave for 30 seconds and that's it! Just scoop the froth on top of your coffee with a spoon. I also chopped up some semi sweet chocolate chips for mine. Yum! 

Hope y'all have a great day!
