On occasion, (read daily) I daydream about the most random things.  Somtimes I take to daydreaming about owning a traveling food truck and venturing out across the United States. (I also suppose I have Sarah and Melissa to thank for starting me down this path as they both graciously offered up their driveways as parking spots for me).  While the food truck isn’t really a reality (nor would I want to incur the cost of a traveling truck), it’s still fun to daydream.

I dream of crispy, wood-fire pizzas (this truck makes that possible), fresh spring rolls using ingredients from whatever state I happen to be in, delicious curries (because sometimes I crave curry), freshly baked cinnamon rolls (I need something not healthy) and tacos, like every day.

I love me some tacos and according to pinterest, you do too.

Even though I won’t have a food truck anytime soon so you can try these delicious tacos first hand, I made you more tacos (because you can never have enough taco recipes.)

This time I just shoved them full of cumin-spiced roasted veggies and called them good.  No grains, no beans, just summer veggie goodness.  Don’t freak out at the long ingredient list, it’s mainly because I used whatever I had in my kitchen.  If you used zucchini and sweet corn you would still have one heck of a delicious taco.

Oh and let us not forget the avocado (really essential to any excellent taco.)

Have I mentioned how much I love tacos?
