New Thanksgiving Traditions

This year has been full of changes so with this in mind, we decided to do something other than the traditional turkey - this year was TACHOS!

So what are tachos? They are a combination of tacos and nachos, the name came from my 7 year old son and are one of his favorite foods. Our Thanksgiving Day feast started with plain nacho cheese and chips (for the boys) and Rotel cheese dip and chips (for the girls). Later we moved on to beef tacos with all the fillings (cheese, beans, salsa, avocado, onions, lettuce, sour cream, etc.) and margaritas - yum! The only failure of the meal was my very overcooked Spanish rice - I had good intentions, but I let it cook way too long and it turned into glue with Mexican spices. Oh well, not everything can be perfection!

The night ended with a game of Catan, Paula Deen's Pumpkin Bars, and Lydia's homemade snickerdoodle cookies. Lydia won the game and the cookies were all eaten up! It was a very low key Thanksgiving, but it also was relaxing and fun for everyone!

So Happy Tacho Day!
