Kids are going back to school and the days are getting shorter, but I refuse to acknowledge that summer is more than halfway over.
I’m optimistic like that. On the other hand, I’m a total pessimist when it comes to winter. I can’t wait to see family again this Christmas, but whenever someone mentions December I plug my ears and sing la la la don’t know what December is. Snow? No. Not happening.
The fact is my husband and I love being Minnesota transplants. But we also laugh at the fact that neither of us really cares for frigid winters. Because let’s face it — weather truly affects our mind, body and spirit.
So yes, I’m going to be in denial about winter coming until the first snowfall. And I’ll cook like it’s not winter for however long I can too! So long as watermelons are fresh and flavorful, you bet I’ll be making these tacos too — a new favorite in our house.
Fresh, sweet, and light tacos: it’s all here, and it will surely tempt you. Why? Because the cod filets are covered in a tasty coconut coating and topped with a colorful and sweet watermelon salsa. If that’s not enough to make your mouth water, it’s accompanied with avocado and sprinkled with cilantro. Need I say more?
