If you had to pick one ingredient to have on hand at all times, yes, just one, what would you pick? It’s an unfair question, really, as there are so many things I would want. Chocolate. Wine. I mean, really, right? Or yogurt. And let’s not forget butter. Or bacon.
But if I really had to pick just one, I would be practical and pick eggs. As long as I have an egg or two in the refrigerator, then I know that I’ll never have to, ahem…scramble. Puns aside, with eggs, breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert – you name it – I’ve got it covered.
Taco Tuesday rolled around the other day and my son came into the kitchen after doing his homework to investigate. He saw me shredding pulled pork, and some freshly rinsed kale on my cutting board. “Um, mom? Since it’s Tuesday, can we have tacos for dinner?”
“We can have something better than tacos – how about taco boats?”
Taco boats! I showed him the nifty Old El Paso soft tortilla shells that I picked up at Albertsons Safeway, shaped to hold a multitude of possible fillings.
He spotted the Box Tops and cut them out — they were due at school the next day.
I finished dicing up some potatoes and slicing kernels of corn off the cob. And after I finished sautéing veggies, I folded in the pulled pork and placed it into the little boats. But before I set the taco boats off to sea, I broke my precious eggs into each one. As they baked in the oven, the eggs settled into the taco boats, and I served it up to my eager family.
I saw nods of approval. My daughter wiggled her shoulders, the Baker family sign of yummy, and my son gave me the thumbs up. “So good!” My husband agreed, dousing his with hot sauce. Hot sauce and eggs – what’s not to love?
“Can we have taco boats every Taco Tuesday?” the kids begged after dinner.
Sounds good to me.
Old El Paso products, found at your local Albertsons Safeway store, are an easy weeknight meal solution.
Shoppers can clip the Box Tops found on the Old El Paso packaging, and on other General Mills products, to earn 10 cents each for their schools through the Box Tops for Education program.
