Tacos: A great dinner had by all

May 27, 2008

Taco

Last night I made tacos. Not only are they delicious; they are so easy. Now that I’ve figured out the perfect Taco seasoning mix it’s healthy too. Here is a simple way to get great results using all natural ingredients that you can adjust to your taste buds. I serve it with both hard taco shells and the soft tortillas to satisfy everyone’s tastes. Personally I like it as a salad and always make twice as much to make certain I have leftovers for lunch.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Taco
1 pound of ground Turkey meat – do not use the very lean white mean, it is too dry
Iceberg lettuce – chopped
Tomato – diced
Avocado – chopped
Sharp cheddar cheese – shredded
Hard taco shells – warmed
Soft tortillas – warmed
Rice
Taco Sauce (I like the Imus Ranch medium sauce)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Cilantro – chopped (optional)

Seasonings


2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon cumin
Cayenne pepper to taste 1/2 teaspoon = spicy 1/4 teaspoon = medium a dash for flavor
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons chicken broth

• Mix all the seasonings together in a small bowl
• Pour olive oil into a frying pan and brown the turkey meat, continue stirring to make certain it is separated
• When it has cooked through add the dry seasonings and mix well
• Add 1/2 cup water and let it simmer for 15 minutes adding more water if needed
• The meat should have a sauce, but not be soupy
• Cover to keep the meat warm
To serve, place all the separate ingredients in separate bowls and let everyone make there own.

There is something perfect about cracking a hard-boiled egg and sliding your fingers under the shell so it pops away from the white in a few big pieces and you are left with this beautiful glistening egg. You particularly know how satisfying that experience is when you expect it but don’t have it. Here is how...

Sitting at the dinner table and lingering after a delicious meal has always been my favorite part of a party. I love when the table, still cluttered with plates, silver, bottles, and glasses half-full, all shimmering in the candle light. Everyone dawdling, their voices excited while eruptions . . .

So far, 2022 has shaken me to my core. It has left me questioning things I believed to be true—things I took for granted. Number 1 I NEVER thought Roe v. Wade would be overturned. That is my stupidity; the signs were obvious but I just didn’t believe it could/would happen. Number 2 I NEVER thought . . .
