Ritz-y Fish Tacos

Ohh my word, these are some yummy THINGS!  My taste-buds rejoiced! To make it even better they were easy.  Recipe courtesy my sis in law (:

vegetable oil 
1 Sleeve Crushed Ritz Crackers
Taco Seasoning Packet
1 cup Mayo
Shredded Coleslaw 

Step 1) Heat oil in skillet with lid on. 
Step 2) While oil is heating put Flour, Crushed Ritz and Flour in 3 separate bowls. Dip the fish in flour, then buttermilk, then crushed crackers.  

Step 3) Place in Skillet, cover and allow to cook.  Allow them about 3-5 minutes per a side depending on how thick of a filet you chose. 
{cooked fish should look something like this}
Step 4) {TACO SLAW}  Ok while you are in between flipping the fish you want to mix the Taco Seasoning, Mayo and Shredded Slaw together. Mix well then set in fridge while you cook the remaining fish.
Step 5) Dice Avocados- simple enough (:
Step 6) Assemble like so and then devour!! 

side notes: I opted for vegetable oil over EVOO as it seems to cook at a higher temp and not burn the fish.  Also, for any of you that hate buying a carton of buttermilk for a recipe and using less then half then throwing away, here is another option.  Powdered buttermilk with an incredibly long expiration date, just add water.  Pure Genius!

Hope you enjoy!

Mother's Day 2012

"Children are a gift from God; they are His reward!" Psalms 127:3

SO TRUE! I had an amazing Mother's Day with the 3 loves of my life. Each one of them has changed my life drastically and I love them with the most sincere and fierce love. The love that I have for my sweet girls is so overwhelming and deep. I require nothing in return and I would give them my last breath without a moment's hesitation. Until you are a mother you truly cannot understand this love, and I pray that everyone is granted the privilege to know this love.

Since being a mother I have been more tired, more stressed, more overwhelmed, more joyous, more happy, and more at peace than I have ever been in my whole life. I feel like we have a few of those Ahhhh moments in our lives. For me I have had three. Three moments where I have felt finally at home, finally at rest. The moment I married my best friend and forever boyfriend. The moment I had my first child. And the moment I had my second child and life hit super speed. I feel like I have been groomed for this my whole life; it is what I'm meant to do. I am mother and a wife~ and I love being that, I love saying that. I am so blessed. My heart is full!

Ryan, Wyndham and Paisley- my love for you is so overwhelming, you make my heart so full, I love each of you with a fierce love. Thank you for a blissful Mother's Day.

Love Always,
