The purpose of this blog is to share our family’s journey to live a Simpler Life
and provide what we hope to be useful and fun content
to help you navigate your everyday busy life.
Our wish is that we all can slow down a little to find joy in every day.
We absolutely fell in love with the authentic and fresh flavors we experienced in Mexico, Belize, and Guatemala. All the dishes were made by hand with the freshest ingredients and the tastiest homemade tortillas.
Our family is crazy about tacos and have them for dinner at least once a week. Through the years we have discovered creative ways to elevate our tacos. We are always trying to duplicate the amazing flavors we experienced during our travels, so our tacos are more interesting and delicious.
We thought it would be fun to share a series of blogs on all things tacos, including some of our favorite taco dishes, sauces, toppings, and side dishes to help you spruce up your Taco Tuesdays.
I have to admit that I am mildly obsessed with canning jars. They come in so many fabulous colors and sizes and are so versatile and affordable. Canning jars are also sustainable, as they can be easily reused and recycled in so many ways. My pantry is always full of extra jars patiently waiting to be put into service. Here are ten of my favorite ways to use canning jars. I will share other creative ways of using canning jars in your home soon.
