The boys came home talking all about Autumnal Equinox. 
We ate outside on our first official autumn day. I always start living "Fall" when school starts so the official season has finally caught up with me. We had some yummy fish tacos, then a walk and some frisbee and of course plenty of picture taking. 

I found myself complaining earlier about how brown everything is and how I longed for green again. There really is beauty and fun to be had from the beginning to the end of each season. 

Having kids around helps remind me of that.

Here is the easy recipe for "Jeff's Fire-House Fish Tacos". He got the idea from work and tweaked it a bit. Man those guys can cook (and eat!). The kids seem to enjoy them and they were voted one of the favorite meals from our house-boating trip. That says a lot because we eat GOOD on those trips! 


Stuff you'll need-

corn tortillas and a tad of oil
frozen fish sticks or fillets (stay with me)
shredded cabbage (or lettuce or somethin')
1/2 onion
handful cilantro 
a little garlic
shredded mozzarella cheese
lime juice
any salsa you want, green and mango are our faves. 
grated parm (optional)

Heat fish sticks/fillets as directed. Cut up your onion, cilantro and garlic. Combine to make a little relish. Add salt and pepper if you want. Heat and soften your tortillas any way you like. We use a bit of oil on the pan and lightly heat both sides. Sprinkle shredded cheese on open tortilla. Lay one fillet or two fish sticks end to end in middle of tortilla. Sprinkle with the relish. Add some shredded cabbage and drizzle with lime juice. Spoon your salsa on top. If desired, line up assembled tacos and sprinkle with grated parm before serving. 

Try it out and let me know what you think! Happy Autumn!


  1. Sounds yum! Now I know what to do with that huge'ol box of fish sticks in the freezer. Gotta love Jeff's shirt. :)
