It’s National Crunchy Taco Day – Eating Good and Spending Family Time

It’s National Crunchy Taco Day! We are celebrating together as a family, eating good crunchy tacos and spending quality time. We’re partnering with Cascade to share how we cleaned up the mess!

Celebrate National Crunchy Taco Day March 21st!

Now, there are lots of National holidays out there, but who could resist National Crunchy Taco Day? We sure couldn’t, so we made sure to have a good ol’ crunchy taco feast complete with ground taco meat, all of the fixings, chips, salsa, and of course, crunchy taco shells!

We seem to have such busy schedules during the week that it can be tough to spend enough quality time together. By the time we’re done with work and school, it’s homework time, occasionally a sports practice, dinner time, bath, then bed. There’s so much to do in so little time, and I am determined to change this!

National Crunchy Taco Day was such a good reminder for me to slow down a little, and to prepare and enjoy a meal together at a normal pace instead of rushing through it. I got dinner started a little earlier than usual, preparing the tomato, lettuce, cheese, onions, and other toppings. I bought ready made crunchy shells, so once the taco meat was done, it was time to EAT! Look at this girls plate, she likes her cheese on the side…

We ate and talked about our day, laughing together and enjoying our time with one another. When we were finished, I didn’t have to worry too much about cleaning up our mess. I dumped large food chunks into the garbage disposal and threw our plates, serving bowls, utensils, and other dishes into the dishwasher, popped in a Cascade Platinum ActionPac, and let the detergent do the work!
