Crunchy Tacos

Boy, is it HOT here today! I know it is really hot because my daughter went outside to play and came back in after only 10 minutes. That NEVER happens. LOL

Tonight I am making tacos for dinner. I bought Old El Paso Stand'n'Stuff taco shells partly to see if they are any easier/better for stuffing and partly because they were on sale. I will brown the ground beef and add water and a McCormick Taco Seasoning packet, and I will serve lettuce, cheese, tomato, taco sauce, and sour cream for toppings. I also have a half a pouch of yellow rice (leftover from something) that I will throw in the rice cooker.

My aunt got me the rice cooker; I think she said it was only $7 at Walgreens. I don't remember if I have sung the virtues of the rice cooker on my blog before, but here goes: I never used to cook rice because I could never get it right; it was either too watery or too dry. This little rice cooker machine is wonderful! It always comes out perfect and you don't have to hover over it, just turn it on and walk away. I had seen these little contraptions before and thought "Oh, I never cook rice so I don't need one". And although I still don't cook a ton of rice, I have used it a few times; twice to make rice pudding which my husband loves. And it is on the small side for an appliance which is always a plus. Thanks again auntie!

Happy eating!

  1. Hey, I saw in one of your blogs that you were mad about eggs. I just bought a dozen JUMBO's for .89 cents. That is usually the price up here for eggs. You mentioned 2 something at some stores and I about choked on my Pepsi. YIKES!
