What's for dinner?
So, I still have a good amount of dark meat left on the chicken carcass (makes you want to be a vegan when you put it like that, doesn't it?) that's hanging out in my fridge. But I think that picked over little bird is mocking me.
"What? You're not going to get another meal outta me tonight? Ran outta ideas, huh? And you call yourself a foodie..."
Well excuse me, little carcass! I know there are tons of things I can make from you, but I'm tired of chicken. Plus, I have a career and a personal life to tend to and I can't always get home in time to... Wait? Why am I talking to bones and thigh meat?
Bottom line? We're having tacos. Nothing special about that, right? Except that we don't make them with ground beef or corn taco shells. We make 'em with ground turkey and (drum roll, please) PITA POCKETS!
Well, I can't be creative every night! Either give me a break or send your recipes my way...
Want to see the most disgusting "taco" ever? Take a look at this. It's from like one or two SNL seasons ago, but still hilarious! Just add a little spaghetti for the Cincinnati version...
