Things I've learned from this evening's taco dinner:
1). When you purchase a hard and soft taco dinner kit, make sure it says "KIT" on it, otherwise, you're just getting a bunch of shells. Having a bunch of shells and a bunch of ground beef does not a delicious taco make!
2). When you realize you goofed and don't have seasoning for your tacos and you pack your kids up to go to the store just to buy taco seasoning, don't cheap out and buy the generic store brand. I'm generally all for store brands and often can't tell the difference from the "good" stuff...not true of taco seasoning. I spent a good 10 minutes adding cumin, paprika, salt, onion salt, and garlic powder to make it edible.
3). I have spent years making tacos for me and the hubs. Always the same. One taco kit, one pound of ground beef. We eat as much as we want and still have leftovers for another day. Now that Aidan is eating tacos, I need to buy 2lbs of ground beef for taco night from this day forward. This is just the beginning of the changes to my grocery planning raising 2 boys (and their dad!).
Quite an educational dinner tonight!
