I'm making shredded beef tacos tonight. They remind me of my childhood. In Costa Rica, where my mother was born, tacos are made using a slow-cooked shredded beef cooked with tomatoes and onion instead of a spicy ground beef which are more a Mexican, Tex/Mex style. We also use soft ground corn tortillas instead of crispy shells. Toppings are simple, finely shredded lettuce or cabbage and thin-sliced tomato, for the sauce, it's a mayonnaise seasoned with a little red chili powder, tobasco and lime. No cheese or sour cream on these tacos, they don't need it, just some yellow rice on the side.

Thought I was being taken out to dinner tonight, but found belatedly that it's been postponed until tomorrow, so guess I will have a chance to enjoy the Swiss Chard (red!) that's been waiting patiently in my veggie keeper! A little garlic, a little cod should take care of things nicely!

I have a friend whose DH insisted on cutting out carbs. You've heard the nursery rhyme Jack Sprat would eat no fat, his wife would eat no lean? Well, this situation is akin to that.

Pretty much all he wants is meat and beans. She hates most meat. She will eat beef if it's so blue it could walk across the table. She doesn't like pork chops or ribs. She doesn't like sausage of any kind (more's the pity; Italian sausage, bratwurst, andouille, etc. all wonderful IMHO). She does eat chicken and fish. (No, she's not a mock vegetarian, she's just picky that way.)

She has to cook copious amounts of meat, beans and the like for him (he has a huge appetite!) then cook something else for herself. All too often she simply winds up eating a salad or some steamed vegetables for her meal rather than bother to cook two meals, which, BTW, they cannot afford to do.

LEFSE, mine is a little diffrent from Paula Deen's. It's posted here Pineapple Casserole It still has the butter, cheese, & all but I don't mix it up, it's kind of layered.

Roast Chicken (brining now), mashed potatoes with gravy and broccoli.
It's a rainy crappy day here, so I can't wait to crank up the oven

I had to scratch the pineapple casserole. I opened the fridge to get out the block of cheese I had in there & it was GONE!! I guess hubby used it for cheese toast or something. Oh well, I made baked apple pies instead. I cheated on them by using a can of apple pie filling & canned biscuits but they still taste good.

I am glad you brought this recipe up. I just got off for Thanksgiving, just 5 minutes ago. I am soooo happy and now, it'll be family, friends, food. I will be buying the pineapple though, cause I loved this when I have made it in the past, and this time, I won't overbake!

Hey, I'm planning on salmon patties for tomorrow! Yum. Probably steamed broccoli on the side.
