I always like to try and make birthdays special.

It doesn’t mean we do anything super exciting, but I like to make the person feel like they are so important and loved.

Why wouldn’t you want to on the day a loved one was born?!

So, I always let the person whose birthday it is choose what kind of cake they want and what they want for dinner.

For Forrest’s birthday in May, he chose a S’mores Cake (SO good) and carne asada tacos. I was a teensy bit stressed about that because I’d never made it before. I thought I’d have to do it on the grill, and I don’t really work well with grills.

However, in the end, I decided to make it in our slow cooker. It turned out great!

I looked at several different recipes and combined elements from each. We ended up serving them on corn tortillas with an avocado and Greek Yogurt sauce, cheese, salsa, tomatoes, and lettuce.
