taco night.

one of my favorite dinners as a child was taco night. the ultimate spread of chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce, cheeses, sour cream, salsa, and delicious beef was such an experience in itself! i loved the process of making the perfect taco. beef first, sprinkle the cheese second (always melted a bit from the heat of the beef), lay down some lettuce, plop some sour cream and then top it off with salsa. it was fun! and i'm not embarrased to say that at 25 years old (eek, 25!), i still find the same excitement and fun in taco night.

my version of taco night this week was the same, but slightly altered. instead of using hard shells, we opted for small flour tortillas (only 100 calories/tortilla), and rather than ground beef we used ground turkey, fat free sour cream, and light cheese. i'd have to say that everything tasted the same, except the sour cream. i think next time i'll splurge and go with regular sour cream. sometimes, you just gotta (same thing goes for ranch dressing. never get fat free. always get regular).
