And there it is, the second Food Truck Tuesday since I came up with this section šŸ˜‰

For this second edition I wanted to focus to the first Food Truck meal we had after arriving in Los Angeles a little over 9 months ago. It was on a sunny Saturday…

Wow, that sounds like the beginning of fairy tale šŸ˜‰

Sweet potato and black bean quesadillas

Sweet-potato-quesadilla-1-inmyredkitchen On MondaysĀ  -after a scrumptious weekend filled with brunches, cocktails and grilled chicken- I’m always craving healthy foods. Kale, quinoa, sweet potato, lentils, chickpeas, avocado, black beans… you’ll name it and I’ll eat it.

I start my week with juices, smoothies, green tea and salads and on Friday that’s slowly transforming into fried eggs, waffles, ramen, caffe lattes and pizza. It’s all about balance right?

One of the great things of living in California are jalapeƱos. Spicy, green, fresh and fiery jalapeƱos.

Believe it or not but it is impossible to find fresh jalapeƱos in the Netherlands. Unless you grown them yourself of course. I was about to start a jalapeƱo project this year, but then P found a job in Los Angeles so we moved.

And I bought a jalapeƱo plant in LA! So I’m harvesting like crazy now, and we have to eat a lot of spicy Mexican food.
