How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

How Due Date Calculators Can Change Your Pregnancy for the Better

Learning that you are pregnant can be one of the most joyous occasions in a woman’s life. As many of us know pregnancy can happen spontaneously or after much trying.  Regardless of how a woman becomes pregnant, it is vitally important for her to know when she…

Read this blog to the tune of All She Wants to Do is Dance by Don Henley.

I'm roasting tomatillos, turning on the grill
and they want to eat is junk, junk, junk
Mommies been mommies, will be mommies still
and all kids want to eat is junk

Tired parents walking 'round with sleep in their eyes
and all the kids are eating junk, junk, junk
Coffee by the potful is speed in disguise
and all the kids will eat is
all the kids will eat is junk

They can't feel the pinch
Or potential Grinch
They want their swimming (ooh)
They want their tv (ooh)
and all they want to eat is
all they want to eat is junk

We finally do vacation
The last cruise out
As we head onto the gangway
I can hear the vendors shout
They say "Bring your little gringos"
And if and when I do
I'll have my pesos
'Cause all they want to eat is junk

They don't feel the shots
Or the dentist's plot
They want their donuts (ooh)
They want their soda (ooh)
And all they want to eat is
All they want to eat is junk

Oh my, I got carried away there listening to my Don Henley CD while putting away laundry.

I don't know about you other foodies or moms, but have you ever made the most fantabulous, gourmet, five-star meal that it took you all day of ignoring other stuff to pull off? And then your kids ask for hot dogs or Kraft Macaroni & Cheese?

Last night I prepped to make homemade toasted coconut ice cream, home-done rotisseried chicken, and a homemade raspberry vinaigrette with farmers market, organic raspberries but what did my kids ask for? Tacos.

I have nothing against tacos, but come on, just. eat. adventurous. onceineaf'inwhile!

So, here is what I did. I conceded, because I want them to eat. But I let the slow cooker do the work.

Dammit.

SLOW COOKER TACOS
2 lbs. ground beef, or turkey, or chicken
1/3 cup taco seasoning
2 tbsp. canola or extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup water

Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker and cook on low setting for 6 hours. When serving, use a slotted spoon to prevent the taco grease from getting everywhere or disintegrating your tortillas. You can also pour meat into a fine mesh strainer - do this over the sink. Let strain for a few minutes.

Serve with the usual - tortillas, taco shells, grated cheese, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, salsa, sour cream.

Just wait until school starts, when I pack melba toast and poached chicken in their lunches. Revenge is bland.
