Only on weekends. DH leaves for work anywhere between 3 and 5 a.m., depending on where the job is that day (truck driver). I get up to get coffee and lunch going for him, then I stay up for some alone time and a shower! My 4 yo likes to get up about 5 and goes and goes all day.

I remember those days of making lunch in the dark and driving them in the dark and picking them up in the dark, and wishing he would buy a decent car or make his own lunch!! I would go home get another hour or so and then get up to go to the office. Not sure why I did now in retrospect!! LOL The things we do in the name of love! Mine was only a B/F though. Don't date in the transport industry any more. I decided I like my sleep!!LOL

I would not be so helpful if I were still going to work myself every morning!!!
Maybe that's why he agreed to let me stay home.....

I use the 5th recipe but now I just season the meat by feel. The large quantity looks good you just need to watch the salt usually way too much which is why I season my own as the store bought is loaded with salt

Charlie - you brown the meat and drain off the fat first - THEN you add the taco seasonings (which I guess is what you are calling taco powder). This way you're not tossing out a lot of flavor with the fat, especially since some of the flavors in the herbs are fat soluable.

As far as the meat - it can be ground beef, bison, goat, lamb, chicken, turkey (you could probably use pork, too) or fish!

The seasonings are fairly similar although different recipes vary in quantities ... chili powder, powdered onion, powdered garlic, cumin, oregano, salt, black pepper, paprika, cayanne pepper, etc. Here are some taco seasonings recipes for you to look over to see if one tickles your taste buds more than another.

The one thing I would warn about - if trying to convert any of these recipes to "bulk" quantities is GO LIGHT ON THE SALT (like maybe only 1/2 as much)!

Hope this helps some ...
