Tonight was taco night! Paul loves tacos. I know for a fact that he gets just as (if not more) excited about them than something I’ve expended much more effort preparing.
In fact, if Paul doesn’t get tacos on a regular basis, he turns into BEAR-HEAD PAUL. (I love my boyfriend because he does random stuff like this all the time. And he let me take this photo knowing it would likely wind up on the internet.)
At least I always know what to make if I’m looking for something simple that both of us will like.
Usually when I make tacos I just add the seasoning to the beef and serve the meat that way, but I decided to bulk it up this time by adding chopped onions and a bell pepper.
While Paul ate his taco fixings in crunchy shells, I made a taco salad. The bottom layer was shredded braised cabbage (love that stuff!), then the beef mixed with homemade taco seasoning, chopped onion, and an orange bell pepper, salsa, and guacamole (a simple mix of an avocado, lemon juice, sea salt, and pepper).
Very good. I didn’t miss the shell at all.
Breakfast: 2 hard boiled eggs, a filet of baked salmon, cucumber salad
Lunch: Coconut Curry Chicken Stir-Fry with kelp noodles (the last of Sunday night’s dinner)
Dinner: Taco Salad
