There is nothing more delicious than a full taco night spread, especially during a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic. Homemade tortillas. Pico de gallo. Guacamole. Meat that falls off the bone. This was a meal that took almost a full day of prep. But it was definitely worth it in the end.
I was cleaning up my pictures when I came across all these vibrant colors! I had completely forgotten about this taco meal. It was a meal we made early into quarantine and the social distancing measures. It was a super indulgent meal, made during a time that we didn’t think would last long so we really went into taco night.
I’m excited that we will soon be recreating a small part of this meal, my favorite part: guacamole.
For Hispanic Heritage Month, I will be recording a video about how to make guacamole for older children and their parents for my library. I might try to add some history in there about the dish and its ingredients. After all, a dish doesn’t just spring out of nowhere; it tends to be born from aspects of a culture and its history. I’m excited to bring some context to food that is easily found in many American restaurants.
Quarantine has been giving us quite a bit of extra time…and we’ve spent that time as wisely as we can: by making margaritas!
What have been your favorite drinks during this pandemic?
