Taco Tuesday! :D

Happy Tuesday, dear friends! :D

I stayed away from my laptop yesterday because I spent some time cleaning, and then studying for my Math exam. I am happy to share that the exam was easy - I didn't really get stuck on any problem. Somehow though, that's kinda scary. After I turned my paper in, I kept wondering if maybe I read the Math problems wrong - How could I have not gotten stuck on any of them?

Do you ever get that feeling?

But anyways, that's done and over with. Moving on, my post for today is all about Taco Tuesday! :)

We didn't really have tacos for dinner tonight (we had chicken curry)... these photos were taken almost a month ago, but I really waited until tonight to post them because I want to call this "Taco Tuesday", haha! ;)

We used McCormick Cheesy Taco seasoning mix:

It made the ground beef taste delicious - cheesy and creamy. It had all that yummy taco goodness.

I ate mine like this:

My sister ate hers with sour cream:

For some reason, I don't like sour cream. I don't really know why.

Our Dad ate his with a hard taco shell:

How do you like to eat your tacos?


Whenever we eat tacos for dinner, we lay everything out like a buffet. It's more convenient to have each make his or her own taco, and it makes cleaning up easier.

We got this tortilla container for a dollar! It's good to have this because it keeps the tortilla warm. :)

Sorry, I know this picture doesn't make it look appetizing!

Do you make your own tacos? What is your favorite go-to place for tacos?

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week!

  2. Oh I LOVE tacos! I like to put the hard shells in a casserole dish with the meat and cheese and then put it in the oven for the cheese to melt! Lettuce, tomatoes & SOUR CREME (oh I love that, too ;) ) on top...YUM!! I could have some tacos for breakfast right now! :D

  6. Looks delish! Tacos are one of my favorite easy-to-make recipes! We usually use the mild taco seasoning from McCormick's, sour cream, guac (if I get around to making it), lettuce, shredded cheese and tomatoes picked right from our garden. I personally love crunchy shells better but my man loves the soft shells. Try making Taco Salad with tortilla chips too...we had that twice this week - thanks leftovers!

  9. So delicious looking!!!
    Glad to hear that your test went well. I've walked out of tests thinking the same thing; what went wrong because that was too easy!

    I love soft tacos. I like mine with rice, beans, lots of veggies, guac, and sour cream. Oh and cheese.

    And actually, more than I love home made tacos, I love home made nacho night!!!

  20. Gah! We are so alike in regards to school - I do that all the time. In fact, a few weeks ago, I turned in my Final paper - electronically, of course - and I kept checking and re-checking that I had, in fact, uploaded it. I was freaking that it hadn't been submitted properly!! :P

    ReplyDelete

  34. I make a different version of tacos without the meat, instead I used refried beans, tomatoes, corn and lettuce. Low fat and yummy! And hard tacos are the best, though I will make a quesadilla with the same ingredients but I add olives. So good, this is making me hungry!

    Have a great week Mimi!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sophia-- we like to use refried beans too! have a great week as well! :D
