Well, by now, you know that one of my goals for my 12 in 2012 project is to lose 30 pounds. So, I reset all of my stuff on Weight Watchers Online and while I haven't done great some times this week, other times I've done better.
One thing that I absolutely LOVE is mexican food. Seriously. It's a life source for me. Water. Shelter. Mexican food. The great thing about mexican food is that it's delicious, easily prepared and can actually be made to be pretty healthy. And since I'm so caring, I'm sharing with you all of my great recipes as I come across them.
Starting with this one:
