What a nice and tasty surprise! Gotta love daughters - sounds like you have some keepers there, Andy.

You are hereby crowned the nightly Goddess of sides. To brag a bit, my scratch made Taco's always stand alone. Ducking and running...

Actually, it was pretty tasty. I think that next time I'll try it with b/s thighs. I used currants, because that's what I have at the moment. Curry with the other flavors was a good combination.

See, "retro" recipes can be a good thing, right? I'm already running..

Kayelle, doesn't bother me one bit that you leave your tacos to fend for themselves. Himself likes sides, I serve sides. Today, though, they were way more starch than I'm used to, but broccoli doesn't go with tacos.

That's what I do when I buy a full, vac-sealed pork loin. That way I can open the package from the middle-ish when I start portioning it up for the freezer.

I had to make some guacamole today, for Nat'l corn chip day, but that was lunch, and more of a snack.

For dinner, I had some chicken, that I marinated like I do for Thai grilled chicken, but I roasted it, instead. And I made a simple sweet and sour dip sauce - nam jeem gratiem - for the chicken. And I made some fried oats! I had some cooked whole oats in the fridge, and I just used my basic Thai fried rice recipe, and added some mushrooms and chopped up bok choy leaves, along with some basils, at the end. I can still smell that in my computer room at this time, and I really am fighting the urge to go down for a midnight snack! lol

CG, the beauty of the taco is that it is the perfect food to eat when you don't have utensils -- or even a table and a plate.

Sure, cd, but we have forks, plates, and tables in our house. Sides are no problema.

Where's the fun in that?

Make friends with someone who has a pickup truck, and eat tacos on the tailgate.

I cooked this last night, but we’ll be having it Wednesday night. An excellent spatchcocked chicken roasted over potatoes, mushrooms and onions. I think the skin looks a little like the hen has acne; I think that’s because I used ghee instead of butter under the skin. It’s nice and crunchy though, for those of you who like crunchy chicken skin!
