We are kind of new to recipes but we’ve had our podcast for a while. Make sure to give us a listen anywhere you listen to podcasts.

Over the next few days, we are going to be releasing a few recipes. These will seem like they have a lot of servings for the average family size. The reason for this is we plan to help you make busy nights at your house a little easier. Stick with me here. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a meal all ready made for busy night at your house? We use a system of cooking twice as much on nights we’re home and then eating that meal again on a busy night later in the week.

Today, we made tacos. This is another dish that can go in so many ways the second go round. And all of them are delicious. We went with traditional tacos for the first time. Who does’t love crunchy, yummy tacos. For the second time, my family’s favorite is open faced tacos. That’s basically tacos but over tortilla chips. You can change it up the add ins to keep it interesting. Enchiladas are also a great way to mix is up for the second time.
