It’s only right that we kick off this new era of “recipes for people who don’t want to spend 3 hours in the kitchen every night” with TACOS.

AKA the ultimate “anything goes” meal.

AKA my weeknight meal S A V I O R.

Also, it was National Taco Day this past Sunday, which was when I originally made these. Soooooo not intentional because I don’t have my life together like that, but kismet nonetheless.

Because Murphy’s Law is ever present around here…I HAVE A COLD!! Two days before my thesis defense!!

And memorize an hour long presentation. And figure out how I’m not going to cry in front of everyone I know as I go through my acknowledgments slide.
