Taco Sunday

A few years ago, “Taco Sundays” were a regular thing in my world. My family (mom, dad and brother) would walk next door to Granny and Grandaddy’s house for the best hard-shell tacos this side of Texas. Granny would be standing there at the stove, frying shells and filling them with spiced beef and Grandaddy would be setting the table and getting everyone’s drinks for them as soon as you walked in the door. Over the years, the table-setting of five would expand and shrink as my brother and I grew older. We’d bring our friends, our SOs and, eventually,  a baby popped into the picture (my nephew). Imagine trying to have a conversation over the sound of a bubbly baby in an Exersaucer bounce. It didn’t matter though, because our attention was on him anyways. Who can ignore a happy baby? And now we have two (my niece)! Anyways, things have changed with time and we’re not all able to gather around the same table to enjoy Granny’s tacos and stories and Grandaddy’s wacky sayings, and Taco Sundays have been sorely missed. My husband was graced with the experience, also. So, we’ve decided to keep the tradition, the family, the friends, the memories alive in our home – a Wilson home. Here’s to the good times had and the welcoming of many more!

We plan to try new  taco variations over time. I’ll post as they come!




Be the change: Awareness

What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in the world?

I’m sure there’s a piece in each of us that yearns to give back to the land and loved ones we’ve encountered in our lives. Within these margins, I want to play show-and-tell, whether it be by how-tos or bringing awareness to other cultures and ideas. Not only do I want this to document growth, how far I’ve come and the challenges I take on and push through, but the goal for this little space is to highlight other cultures around our area and get insight from them, to be a listen and learn experience…one that hopefully inspires others.
