National Taco Day

on October 4, 2014

Happy National Taco Day!  Sometimes whatever food holiday helps me decide what to have for dinner.  Tonight I finally finished off the Sam’s Club bag of fish sticks I had in the freezer, to make fish stick tacos.  I added some rice that I’d cooked with Penzey’s Southwest Spice blend.  I’m trying to have a few things like leftover rice and tortillas, for impromptu dinners.  It seems to help.


Last night we had curried split pea soup.  I used a Food Network recipe as a guideline, adding more veggies (carrots, three kinds of peppers, diced potato).  I only used a teaspoon of curry powder, but added a teaspoon each of garam masala and cumin.  Also, I didn’t puree the soup since I like it chunky.  I served the soup (or as Rachael Ray calls it, a “stoup” – thinner than a stew, thicker than a soup) over some leftover quinoa.  I liked these flavors better than regular split pea soup.  Yum.
