This week in my life is called, "Prepping for college senior year send off." If you have or have had college age children, you know exactly what that involves. A LOT! My to-do lists have to-do lists for crying out loud. For the past couple of weeks, instead of listening to music during my morning runs, I listen to the thoughts in my head. All the planning and the questions. "Does he need more of this or that? Don't forget this and what if that." I mean seriously, it never ends. If you could get a glimpse in my head, well, I'm not sure what you would think. But you know what, we get through it and it all gets done. It's just a ton of work, especially if you want the process to go smoothly and in a super organized fashion.
It's all worth it though. He is doing so well and very much in his element at school. I think for most parents it's hard to say goodbye to their children knowing they are fully on their own. Oh sure, we still see him about once a month so it's not like we will never set eyes on him again. But you know, it's just hard. So it is comforting to me knowing I have left him with everything thing he needs or may need in the future. Do you go through this too?
We only have a few more breakfasts together so I wanted to make my son one of our favorites. If you are a fan of chorizo, then you know just how delicious it is, and spicy! The butcher at my local store carries chicken chorizo sausage and it is fantastic. The flavor is amazing and compliments with eggs really well. This is one of those meals that works for breakfast or dinner. I'm not sure why but sometimes having breakfast for dinner is so satisfying. Do you ever have breakfast for dinner?
I love that these tacos include some healthy protein and you can add a variety of fresh vegetables to really bring things together.
We enjoy eating these tacos with the Paleo Gluten Free Tortilla recipe. But they also go great with corn tortillas or whatever your family enjoys regularly. Add whatever fresh vegetables you like. Some of our favorite additions are avocado, diced tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, and of course cashew sour cream.
10 eggs, scrambled
1 pound ground chicken chorizo

1. Prep any vegetables that you wish to include in your tacos first. If you decide to make your own tortillas, this should be done before cooking the chorizo and eggs as well.
2. Cook the chicken chorizo in frying pan over medium heat.
3. While the chorizo is cooking, scramble the eggs.
4. Assemble the tacos exactly how you like and just like that you are ready to enjoy a quick, easy meal that is equally delicious. Serves 4.
