Taco Night With My Seeeeeester :)

^^ Press Play

I’ve found that whenever we have my little sister, Gigi, over, it’s best if we eat meals that are interactive a.k.a. food that she can play with.

Most times, that usually means tacos.

She loves putting whatever toppings she wants on on her tacos and it’s great for us because it’s such a simple meal to whip together within 30 minutes.

Quick prayers and we were finally ready to eat.

We usually eat our tortillas regular but on this particular day, we decided to quickly fry them for a tostada effect. It was our first time ever doing something like this so we (ahem, Charles) accidentally over cooked the tortillas but thankfully, they were still edible.

I asked her, “Does your taco taste alright?” She responded with “Cowabunga” lol.


My taco.


^^ Typical. Whenever I would remind her to eat with her mouth closed, she would do this. She’s at that age where she loves to do the opposite of what you say haha.

And so concludes a look into a pretty basic dinner night in our black and yellow home. And when I say “basic”, I mean it in the best way possible because little moments are just as life happening as big, momentous moments.

With that said, I wish you a Happy Friday! May your weekend be filled with happy moments with the people you love and most importantly, yummy food!

What’s your favorite quick meal to cook at home?

  • tacos are definitely at the top of the list! spaghetti is a close second :)

    • Oh yes, spaghetti is a big one for us too, especially in the winter! :)

    My vegetarian chili. So fast, so comforting.

    • Ooooh veggie chili! Do you make it on the stove or crockpot?

      • Whitney

        Stovetop! Takes maybe 20 minutes and you can make so many variations to the base ingredients. I make it and put it on top of macaroni noodles and sprinkle some colby jack on top!!! With cornbread….ooooh I need to make some soon :)
