Dinner in 5 Minutes. Maybe 6.

I have never blogged about food stuff before.  I love to eat just as much as the next guy (or gal), but this is a decorating/crafting blog, right?   Well, decorators and crafters need to eat too, so here goes…

Dinner in 5

I had no idea what to fix for dinner tonight.  Zero.  Nada.  None.   I found this little package in my freezer…


…and a dinner idea was born.  Vegetarian tacos.  We are not vegetarians around here, but we do like our veggies and we love Mexican food.  LoVe iT!   We always have all of the fixings on hand.

The veggies took about 5 minutes to cook. OK, maybe 6.  While they cooked I fried the tortillas, 2 at a time on our electric griddle


As I waited for each to cook, I shredded the lettuce, cut open an avocado and pulled everything else out of the fridge.   By the time the microwave beeped, dinner was ready.


Let me tell you, it was delicious!  We loved the different textures of the beans and veggies.  Just a tiny bit of kick, unless you add salsa and Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce.  Mine was spicy.  Just the way I like it!

Here are the nutritional facts from the bag:


I wish that I had thought to get pictures of the finished tacos, but we pigged them down just as fast as it took to make them.  This was not a night to sit and have pleasant family discussion.  Hubby had things to do before darkness set in.   We basically scarfed in silence.

There you have it.  Dinner in 5 minutes…maybe 6.  Pretty extraordinary, if you ask me.

I wonder if my family would notice if I tried to pull off this quickie meal again tomorrow night!  (Wink!)

So, what speedy meals do you fix when time is short?
