taco salad. aka: not a cafeteria lunch.

Recently my Saturdays have been full of early mornings and nonstop hours of band and socialization. This usually leads to be being burnt out on people and activities. This leads to the unhealthy habit of eating really poorly the next day. Or even that day. If I don’t have good food in my apartment, I’ll probably just eat pop tarts for dinner…like yesterday…also, I don’t know if you know this but cafeteria food is gross. And not always really good for you. I tend to avoid it. All the time.

To remedy the situation of not having food here I decided to be like my friend Bethany. She is really good about making food and having it ready for anything. She’ll be safe when the zombie apocalypse happens. I started today by making a bunch of taco meat to keep in the fridge/freezer for awhile. Then I made a salad. I don’t even like salad that much. It seemed like the right thing to do.

Here’s some possibilites of things to put in and on your taco salad:
Lettuce (that’s a given)
Taco meat (also a given. I just buy the little packets and make that with ground beef. someday I’ll learn to make my own)
Tortilla chips
Sour cream
Tomatoes (let’s be real..if you add salsa are tomatoes just overkill?)
More lettuce
Cheese (I really like cheese)

Make this your own. Do what you like. Be yourself. Remember to be nice to people.
