Pulled Jackfruit Tacos


“I got that summertime sadness.” – Lana Del Rey & me.


I know there’s like a month and a half left of summer, but I’m already mourning it.


I give this summer 5 stars, 10/10, would recommend to a friend.

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Garr & I have just had so much fun. We’ve eaten all the foods and been to all the events and stayed up late on school nights and soaked up all the WA sun and have just, quite frankly, lived the dream. Like, last weekend, Garr was just like, “Oh hey I found some cheap Ed Sheeran tickets, wanna go?” I’m like ummmm I am a living, breathing, human female OF COURSE I WANNA SWAY TO THAT LITTLE REDHEAD. Only in the summer does this sort of magic happen. But soon the rain will roll in and I will run up the credit card bill on self tanner. *Sigh*


However it is going to be literally 100 degrees on Thursday and we don’t have air conditioning soooo…..

    I had to look up what a Jackfruit is … part of the fig, mulberry and breadfruit family- who knew THEY are a family …. they sound like they made their own family as angsty teenaged fruits who suffered from paranoia and rage that no-one understood them. I relate.

    Imagine that, I made tacos last night myself. Of course mine were a bit more traditional and actually contained ground animal meat and animal by-products. Let’s see, we had a pound of ground chuck, otherwise known as BEEF. And we had shredded Mexican Cheese. Not sure what varieties of cheese as it came shredded and prepackaged. But it sure was good. Traditional spices, onion, jalepeno’s, (sp), sour cream and guacamole. I’ll bet money mine were better tasting than yours. Just what the hell is a jackfruit anyhow?
