Texas Breakfast…

Hello and howdy y’all!  Happy happy Friday!
It has been a beautiful week here in my neck of the woods.  My sincere apologies to those of you who have had to deal with the return of winter weather!  I will try to send some sun and warmth your way! 🙂
So when I moved to Texas in 2009, I encountered a food I had never had before.  At first I was not really sure how I felt about it, but after some convincing, I tried some, and I was sold!  The longer I have lived here, the more I see this yummy breakfast food!  They have restaurants that sell them and  food trucks.  They are def a very popular item for most Texans!   The only bummer for me is that I have yet to find one with a gluten free tortilla, so of course, I started to make my own!  Here is my own version of the Breakfast Taco!

I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit for our ‘in your state’ themed week!

    I finally just photographed our breakfast tacos, well one version which is a little odd but still… they hit the spot! I am really intrigued by the salads and the cucumber in it! I will have to give it a try. I went to Whole Foods 4 times in the last two days along with many other stores so I’m hoping not to head back but I do have to run out tomorrow for one thing so maybe I can pick up some cucumber.

    Happy Foodie Friday!
