You know the feeling. You’re in the car on the way home from work and you start thinking about dinner… and how the thought of cooking a meal from scratch sounds like too much work. And there’s the Chipotle you are just about to pass by and wouldn’t that be so much easier than cooking something at home tonight…
Not if you have carnitas cooking in your slow cooker, just waiting for you to arrive home and assemble the most delicious tacos you have ever had in a mere 15 minutes! Healthier, tastier, cheaper, and much more satisfying than picking up Chipotle. Trust me.
Not a whole lot is better than a homemade carnitas taco, my friends. Not. A whole. Lot.
Confession time. There was a time when Zach and I first started dating that we ate out a lot. Nope. That’s an understatement. It was like every night. No joke. We had lots of excuses for our all-too-typical 20-something millennial behavior. Roommates with whom we shared the kitchen and didn’t want to disturb. We were tired and hungry and needed food NOW. We were in love and wanted to go on a bazillion dates. But most of all, we were working our butts off teaching long hours and didn’t know how to balance that with healthy home cooking.
We’ve come a long way, which is why I started this blog! To share with YOU, all you busy, hard-working people!
Back to the tacos.
