taco night

i’m going to let you in on a little secret. although mike and i love making new recipes and fancy meals, life gets really busy. and when this happens, we have a taco night.

i know this really doesn’t need an actual recipe – you can throw whatever you want into your tacos and they will be delicious (i really love putting leftover roasted vegetables into tortillas with a little cheese if we have them around). but i wanted to share a normal night at our place. it’s real simple, delicious, and quick. although we try to make at least one new meal per week to share with y’all, taco night if much more representative of our normal dinners. phew, i feel better now that i’ve shared this secret with you! ok, your turn: what’s your favorite quick weeknight dinner?
