Working moms and working dads are challenged every day. On any given day, parents and kids are both worn out by the time they come home. I have learned that if I sit down, when I come home, I’m pretty much done for the day. The longer I sit, the more likely I am to order Pizza or Chinese food. There’s nothing wrong with that but I find more satisfaction by staying on my feet and cranking out a quick, nutritious meal.
Ironically, the more difficult my workday is, the more likely I am to push through and cook something. Once I get started cooking I get into a rhythm and the act of cooking becomes therapeutic and strangely relaxing. The best part is, I get to talk to my family in the kitchen while dinner is prepared and then we all get to sit together and have a meal.
Ground beef tacos are super-easy to make and they can be accompanied by as much or little as you wish.
This time it was just my wife and me having dinner. My kids are young adults now and we don’t all gather for dinner, like we did in the past. I miss that, but at the same time, I know that’s just the way life works.
After a long day of work, moms and dads don’t want to waste precious time or energy.
Use every shortcut. Work efficiently and always make one thing special, or out of the ordinary, and include some sort of fresh vegetables.
No recipe this time…just pictures. It’s tacos for crying out loud!
