Food Friday: Taco Pie

When it comes to dinner, sometimes the simpler the better.

So Terry often buys fish and chips, Hamburger Helper, frozen pizzas etc to help take the strain off of making dinner everyday from scratch.

One day he bought this:

A soft taco bake kit.

OMG - this is the most delicious layering of stuff ever.  Yum yum yum yum.

And the kids ate it up and then demanded the one piece of taco pie that was left for lunch the next day.

So when we saw that Terry had taken some ground beef out of the freezer for defrosting, we knew what we wanted!

For a few days Terry tried to tease the kids saying that he was going to make spaghetti and meat sauce with that ground beef.

The kids weren't having any of that.  Yesterday, I took them for a walk to our neighbourhood grocery store and they wandered the aisles shouting "TACO PIE!" at the top of their lungs.  When they found the coveted box, they were all smiles.  Even the cashier (who had to listen to the Taco Pie symphony for 10 minutes while we found the box) told us that she really loved this particular Taco bake as well.

We got home and Logan insisted that daddy know what we were having for dinner.  He wanted to be clear that we put the veto on spaghetti and meat sauce once and for all.

He made this sign:

The sign says "Taco pie please."  We taped it the the back of a chair and placed it in the front entryway of the house so that Terry would have to run into it when he came home form work. 

Yes.  Our family is hardcore bonkers over Taco Pie.

yum yum yum yum yum.

**** Note: how could Terry resist all of that hoopla over taco pie? He made it for us for dinner last night.  The kybosh has been put on spaghetti and meat sauce until further notice :P

**** Note number 2: I wasn't compensated in any way for making this endorsement of taco pie.  My family just really loves it.  So if Old El Paso wants to send us ... like... a year supply of Taco Pie, I could totally be down with that hehehhe
