I forgot I had a 5:15 pm meeting yesterday afternoon so as I was rushing out of the house at 5:00 pm I was thinking that I haven’t even started dinner yet. I knew I had some ground beef and chicken breasts thawing in the refrigerator. What was I going to serve my family though when I got home at 7:00 or 7:30 pm. I couldn’t even tell my family what to get started as I was in such a rush when I left the house I just said goodbye and left.
Then I remembered my daughter had bought a giant box of snack sized chips for camp. She doesn’t care much for regular Doritos so I knew there were 6-8 bags in the pantry. We would have Walking Tacos!
I was absolutely amazed at how happy this meal made my family. It was simple and when I got home everyone pitched in so that dinner was on the table within 25 minutes.
I think they all liked that they could put together their own salad just as they wanted. They could have no onions, or tomatoes, or sour cream if they wanted. It was all up to them. I loved that I was thinking ahead to To-Go dinners. I am always trying to get more vegetables in our To-Go meals and this would definitely help. Just make sure we have extra shirts and plenty of napkins for any drips.
My son has already asked that we have these again this summer. He was thinking ground turkey next time.
