Old El Paso Let’s Taco ‘Bout It, Chapter Two — Whatchu Know ’bout Taco Tuesday???

Toddlers wouldn’t know good food if it hit them in the face. (And if you’ve ever seen a toddler eat, you’ll know that’s exactly what it usually does.)

Old El Paso Let’s Taco ‘Bout It, Chapter Two — Whatchu Know 'bout Taco Tuesday — Even Toddlers Love Tortilla Bowls
I mean, sometimes it’s a struggle to get this guy to eat, but tortilla bowls proved interesting enough for him to give it a try!

Feeding kids ain’t as simple as it used to be. Back in my day (I cringe that I’m old enough to say that), I remember plenty tuna casseroles, stir-fries and macaroni and cheeses. No one had the time to slave over stoves like Moms did in the ’50s and ’60s, so quick and easy were the name of the game after a hard day’s work. And even though parents have less time than ever in 2016, we’re a lot more discerning in what we eat. We scrutinize nutritional guides. Scour ingredient lists. We do everything in our power to make sure we’re not giving our families food we’ll come to regret later.

So you’ll need meals that’re both quick to produce and good for you—good thing Old El Paso’s dinnertime options provide just that!

Though the little ones are too young to appreciate theme days like Taco Tuesday, Sarah and I appreciate planning our meals well in advance. Nothing’s worse than hearing “What’s for dinner?” before you’ve even had a chance to think about the answer.

Being the efficient chefs that we are, we used much of the chicken from our last recipe for the meal! Interested in how we made them? Check out the recipe below:

I AM NOT A FOODIE: #SamInHand Has Me Cooking With Sam Adams Beer!

As a guy who rarely cooks, I’m guessing that God’s having none of that and making sure I can actually provide for my family.

Some time ago, I shared the story of my hatred for cooking, sure I’d avoid the kitchen for the rest of my earthbound years. But with daycare nipping hot at the heels of the East York Palmers, and with it the scheduling unpredictability that comes from a family with two working parents, I had to bite the bullet sometime!

So whaddya know — despite being loath for anything finding me in front of a stove, brands like Samuel Adams put their money where their mouth is (and product where mine is), challenging me to grab an apron and see what I can do to feed myself without calling the number for the local pizzeria — and yes, it is on my speed dial.

Everyone, for your viewing pleasure, I present — Cooking With Beer: Because it’s Not Just Good for Drinking!

10 Links You Should Click

One of my bad habits is racking numerous open tabs up in my browsers. It’s something I’ve tried to curb in The 2014 100, but it still creeps in if left unchecked.

After chatting with a friend who misses the short posts I used to put out with 100 Happy Days, she got me thinking on what I could put out that was short and sweet but could still be valuable to my readers.

So in that spirit, here’s 10 Links You Should Click, a (maybe weekly) look at the stuff I come across and think you should check out. It could be things I want to make or do, or maybe stuff I just discovered that made me pause.

May these links titillate and thrill you, excite and entice you — and give me a reason to do this again!
