Pizza Tacos

The computer Gods have answered our prayers. The cookbook is restored. I’m sure the IT guy at work thinks I’m rather…blonde, but my world as I knew it can resume rotating on its axis and I can eat something other than chocolate and drink something other than caffeine. And hopefully, my November 1st cookbook deadline will be reached. (P.S. Thank you for all of your Facebook comments, I really appreciate them!!)

In the midst of cookbook writing, cooking magazine reading has taken a back seat. Admittedly, I subscribe to far more magazines than I can keep up with but the joy they bring me when I open the mailbox…well, I probably get way more excited than one ought to.

Two weekends ago, I got to attacking the 3-foot tall pile of magazines and got to ripping all of those that caught my eye. My boss back in Ohio used to suggest that I keep the magazine spine in tact and just rip out the recipes that didn’t look good. It made sense, but I haven’t changed my ripping ways. Inevitably, they end up strewn across our first floor and I fail to make even a handful of what I select. Too many recipes, too little time!

This recipe, however, had to be made. I’m all for a meal that satisfies Mr. Prevention’s pizza craving…and that doesn’t require yeast and 2-3 hours of my time and labored kneading of dough. Or the labor of my stand mixer and dough hook, alright.

I was seriously skeptical. This recipe would go one of two ways, no doubt about it. Even Mr. Prevention, the pizza fanatic himself, gave me a raised eyebrow when he asked, “What’s for dinner?” and I said, “Pizza…tacos.”

Of course his next question was, “Are they going to be on the ‘healthy’ tortillas?” to which I responded, “But of course, my dear!”

Are these the epitome of a healthy dinner? Nah. That said, the salt is definitely the worst offender in this instance. Everything else was acceptable. Serve these with a side salad and you’re bound to make for some happy campers in both your significant other and your kids!

 I’ve been racing home to make dinner before ALL of the daylight is gone. The things we do for food photos…

Workout then work.

Be well,
