Sunday Dinners #4 (02.22.09)

Homemade tacos. One of our favorites. Salsa was made from tomatoes in our garden and canned by us back in August. We didn't have a packet of taco seasoning on hand so we whipped one up with a recipe pulled of the internet this afternoon. The beef is venison burger made by my dad and brought to us on their last visit. If the idea of that grosses you out, I would bet you wouldn't know the difference if you ate it this way. Seriously. It just tastes like what you would expect taco meat to taste like. Which is of course, yummy.




This week I'm thankful for the generosity of one of my blogger friends, Nobody. In the comments of my F.T.U.T.S.A. post earlier this week, I jokingly asked Nobody to convince my local PBS station to convert back to analog. It was the only channel we really watched—mainly for G-tot—and they made the digital switch back on the 17th. We have no cable, so that meant no PBS any longer. Yesterday in the mail we received a package from Nobody. In it, a digital converter box. We now get the best picture we have had in years and several additional channels—including two more PBS stations.

Thank you so much Nobody. You are awesome.

How about all of you? What are you thankful for this week?

Wow! How wonderful of Nobody! Everyone should get their PBS. So happy you are now able to, thanks to Nobody. Now I have to go back to read all of this week's posts I missed and have some cheese because, well, you showed pictures of cheese and I am like Pavlov's dog like that.

How cool is that?! Wow, Nobody, that's so great. People in blogland are my FAVORITE. :)

Tacos, mmm. I had some of that fake-meat tofu/soy stuff once and it was hard to tell the difference between that and the real thing. So I'm sure venison tacos were yummy, too!

I'm thankful for Tylenol PM this week, as well as time spent with my sister. She's been there for me the last few days, so much, and I'm very lucky.

I am thankful I have some kind of job, even if it is working in a restaurant, that can bring in money for our bills. It is so hard right now but my *ahem* smashing personality brings the tips in during the late night bar crowd.

I am with Lisa- I mainly eat fake meat with tacos because I am not a big meat eater. But yeah, tacos are delicious! And the fact that you made your own taco seasoning sounds great. I am sure it was a lot healthier. Most seasonings like that are chock full o' salt.
