Snicker, that sounds like a good combo of flavors...let us know if it's as good as you remember.

Those meatballs sound FAB........will be watching for the recipe.

I'm doing good ole ground beef Taco's. I don't use those nasty crisp taco shells they sell in the box either. Want them done just like Mama did.
It was good! It was just like I remember I have just enough left to enjoy it again tomorrow for lunch. Success!

Ok pacanis, here's how Mama did the corn tortillas for taco's. Have all your taco fixin's ready to go. I buy the super size corn tortillas.
In your largest skillet, pour in about an inch of veg. oil, and get it hot on med heat. With tongs, lay a tortilla into the oil just to wet it, and quickly turn it over, wetting the other side. Quickly flop one side over the other forming the "taco" shape. Lightly fry on each side. I can get three of them into my largest skillet, with round edges facing outward. Don't cook them too much because the seam will crack if you do. Drain them on paper towels, and fill all three of them with all the fixin's, then begin on the next three. They must be eaten right away, so while hubby is eating, I cook mine. It takes some practice to do this, but it is SOOOOOOO worth it. I repeat, those hard boxed shells are nasty.
Let me know if you try it......you won't be sorry.

Kayelle, great tutorial I know just what you were doing when I read this. As soon as I can find corn tortillas I'm going to make my own taco shells. Seems like I only run into the flour ones, which are obvioulsy lacking in taste.
Thank you.
And you betcha Peeps. Out of the boxed shells, Old El Paso gets my vote. They are lighter and crispier.

I made a small prime rib roast. First time. the recipe was spot on.

Good to see you again pacanis!

We were going to have chili, but ended up with Wendy's on the way home from the store, since it was almost 8:00. We will have chili tomorrow.
