Ok, this goes down as the laziest dinner ever – or close to it. Saturday night we had my darling baby nephew over to spend the night, so Sunday was about taking it E-Z. I spent the afternoon sewing, practicing my hems and my darts, and the boys (hubby and NR) watched Spider-Man 3 for the zillionth time. Lo and behold, 5:15 pm rolls around and someone says “what’s for dinner?” It is at that time that I realize I have nothing planned, nothing thawed and nothing ready. So into the car I go for a quick jaunt to the store. Back home, browning ground turkey and assembling the “tacos”, we are dining by 6:00 pm flat. Easy is its main virtue, but if you ever find yourself needing a quick dinner fix, you could do worse.
Tossed Taco (for four)
1 pound ground turkey
1 packet taco seasoning mix
Guacamole and/or sour cream (Calvados prepackaged guacamole is actually pretty good)
Fritos (Scoops work well)
Fry up the turkey until brown, add the seasoning mix according to package directions. Place a layer of Fritos on your dinner plate, top with 1/2 cup of cooked turkey, a handful of shredded lettuce, a sprinkling of cheese, and your toppings of choice.
