What is a “Tacosaurus???”

What the heck is a Tacosaurus you may ask? Well, it is a word that I overheard a child use in a Mexican restaurant the other day and it means someone who loves all tacos. You can put pretty much anything in a taco and still have it be really great, so I thought I would make a couple of suggestions for those among us who are not yet in to the joys of taco life!

  1. Use any kind or size tortilla-flour, corn, spinach, herb, etc. Large or small makes no difference. Some purists may call a taco made with a big tortilla a burrito, but it is NOT. If you fold the tortilla in half instead of doing any sort of wrap, it is a TACO! Also soft tacos are not fried and crispy tacos are.
  2. I always start with lettuce, chopped tomato, and grated cheese. I like cheddar, but any kind will do.
  3. Beans are a must-Refried, vegetarian or regular, the difference being that regular are made with lard and vegetarian are not. Black beans are good, and so are kidney beans. Pinto beans work too.
  4. Now for the fun-your favorite fillings. I love shrimp, any kind of fish, soy ground beef, or QUORN shredded chicken. I also really like deviled egg filling. Non-veg people love ground beef, steak, chicken, pulled pork, and chopped ham.

The most outrageous taco I ever saw had pork and beans and chopped hot dogs. Anyway, you get the idea, right. Make it yummy and customize to taste-Be creative!

PS Don’t forget guacamole on top!

Coffee, Anyone?

Ok, I JUST read the latest research on coffee in the medical section of Readers Digest. The science on coffee has been all over the place, and now the latest thinking is that there are many health benefits to coffee. Recommended intake-No more than 3 cups. If you are a big coffee drinker, think about it and check out some of the research and maybe consider a cup of decaf instead of that fourth cup.

Say It Isn’t True!!!

Okay, so you are not going to believe this, but some mean, horrible person actually sent pornography to my comment section. Why in the world do people do this? People who want/need that kind of thing certainly would not come to a BLOG that deals with health, insight, and decor, would they? Am I missing something? I guess I just don’t get it. Don’t do that any more-OK?

OMG-More Tee Shirts!

  1. “This Year I am giving my opinion instead of gifts-Interested?”

2. “Which part of the Bible explains how to change water into wine? Asking for a friend!”

3. “You know you are old when you go to an antique show and people start to bid on you!”

T- Shirt Stuff Keeps Rollin’ In

Some cat lovers complained about all of the “Dog” quotes so here are a few “Cat” slogans to make up for it.

A Good Book, A Cat On My Lap, Life Is Sweet!

Real men can and do love cats.

No, I am not shedding, it’s my cat.

If the earth was actually flat, cats would have pushed everything off of it by now, right?

Keep the T-shirt fun going. Love it!

Stop Dragon Your Feet!

Stop “Dragon” your feet and read a book. This is just one of the ways to beat the “I am so sad at home” blues.

Adventure: Clive Cussler is very hard to beat. He has written sooo many books and most of them are in series so if you don’t like one genre there are at least five others. Favorite? The Oregon Files series

Just for fun: I have read them all from book one to the next to last. I have ordered the final and it has not come yet. Yes, of course I mean the Stephanie Plum series starting with One For the Money and going on to I believe it is book 24 or 25. All of them are a hoot and you will actually laugh out loud prticularly at Lula and Connie!

Westerns: Western books come and go but I have a friend who is a real fan of the genre and he swears that there is still nothing better than Zane Grey and Louie L’Amour. Oldies but goodies my friend says.

Gentle Fiction: Has to be the Mitford series. Any of the Amish books are good too. (Kingsford)

Read to the kids: Boy, I really love The Magic Tree House series. Mary Pope Osborne is excellent and her husband also writes companion books that tell true historical facts surrounding each of her fiction stories. These are “read aloud” stories in my opinion. Stuff happens that is fun to talk about with your child. (Magic School Bus not so much. Too much detail for the average child.)

Cook Books: Yes. some people (Me!) actually read cookbooks for fun and try new recipes on their long suffering significant others over and over again. Best source for cookbooks that are really interesting? Thrift shops, of course!!

So, quit “dragon” your feet and READ!
