What’s for Dinner Wednesday?

Aside

Is this really already the end of January, 2011? Wow! I’ve barely gotten used to writing 2011 when I’m writing the date, like I had to at work earlier (which is why I’m posting this so late…I meant to do these earlier!)

I’m the odd duck of the group. Ask the guys, or if you follow me on Twitter (@Wattyz) You probably already know this. If not, go follow me, you’ll see! ;)

All this talk about Taco Bell lately actually had me wanting to make tacos. See? Odd Duck! LOL They’re easy to make, and everyone in the family eats them with no complaints because they’re customizable for everyone’s tastes. 

I set everything up, and there’s a taco bar setup here. Soft tortillas for the youngster, hard shells for the guys, and a big cut head of Romaine lettuce for me to make a giant taco salad with.

Taco Salad

I found a pretty good recipe at Allrecipes. Posted Here

Shown above is ground beef mixed with taco seasoning, a head of romaine mixed in with some regular bagged salad mix, topped with a little spanish rice, red onion, tomatoes, and cheese, with a bit of greek yogurt (I use greek yogurt in place of sour cream. More flavor and better for you. :)

Hey! Have you had one of those days where you’re going nonstop all day until you realize it’s almost dinner time and you don’t know what to make? I’m right there with you today!

Well, kind of. I’ve been running around since 8am. Got home about 5:30, then I got to ask

What’s for dinner?

For me, this is going to be pretty easy. Me and Dave M had lunch at a traditional Irish pub called Conor O’Neills in Ann Arbor. They are one of several restaurants in Ann Arbor participating in Ann Arbor Restaurant Week, that is currently running from January 16 until January 21. Select restaurants have $12 for one or two lunch entrees, or two dinner entrees for $25.

I ordered Salmon and shrimp cakes that came with a pineapple, red pepper and cilantro relish. I ordered the appetizer portion and am having the second one for dinner with a salad and tater tots (don’t tell my trainer about the tater tots, ok? ;)
