Taco Night

I know Taco night is So easy.  I set mine up like a taco bar.  My kids love taco night, they request it since everyone gets a taco just the way they want.

Make Bean Dip for taco night.
1 lb shrimp
1 lb ground sirloin
2 packages your favorite taco seasoning (preservative free)
1 package shredded mexican blend cheese
head of organic iceberg lettuce
2 organic tomatoes
2 Avocados
1 jar your favorite salsa (preservative free)
6 or more taco shells
tortilla chips
1 container sour cream organic

I little side note I have found some great seasonings, salsas and taco shells that are made local and are preservative free.  Look around your grocery, you may find similar items.

Put beef and 1 package seasoning in skillet and break up while cooking until all meat is browned.  In another skillet put your cleaned shrimp with shell and tail removed.  Add other package of seasoning to shrimp and cook until shrimp are pink.  Heat taco shells in oven according to directions.  Cut your lettuce and place in bowl.  Take one avocado cut open and remove pit, and remove skin.  Cube Avocado and place in bowl.  Cube tomatoes and place in bowl. Use other avocado to make Guacamole.  Once everything is ready lay out all ingredients.  So that it is lines up and everyone can build their own taco or taco salad to there liking.  This will be a great hit at your house.

The great thing about this recipe is anything you are allergic to just leave out.

  2. I found you via Blog Hop Till You Drop & am a new follower. I love taco night - I usually do chicken in mine :)


  3. This is a great idea!! We do something similar at our house but we also make crockpot "refried" beans. They taste almost identical to refried beans but since they are cooked in the crockpot with water and spices they are much healthier!!
    Following by email from Wonderful Weekend Hop.

    1. Sounds really interesting. I have not made my beans in the crock pot before. I do you use my pressure cooker when I have time. Thanks for the idea and follow.

  4. I love your blog! I'm always looking for new ways to eat healthier, and ideas for when my LL is older.

German Potatoes

I have no idea why these are called German. I tasted a recipe years ago, and someone called them german potatoes.  I created the potatoes in college as a dinner staple.  This is a delicious take on potatoes, and my family loves this flavorful dish so much. You can even cook them up on your grill using a castiron skillet.
