The past few days have been a little hectic.  Between visitors, work, the rainy weather, groundskeeping, cooking, cleaning, and scheduling a family night out to the movies, my head has been spinning just a tiny bit.  I don’t know that we are any “busier” now than when Bubbles was a baby, but it’s a different kind of busy that takes a little more planning.

This Quick & Easy Taco Salad recipe has all the yummy flavors of a taco on one plate. No big shell needed, just add a few crushed tortilla chips to give you that nice crunch.Thank you to Lunchbox for sponsoring this post. Words & opinions are my own.

I was trying to decide what to make for lunch recently and after going through all the cabinets, fridge and freezer, I realized that I had everything on hand to make tacos.  Which meant that I had everything I needed to make the Quick & Easy Taco Salad recipe from the Kraft Recipe Hub.  Hubby likes taco salad, also, so I decided to whip this recipe up for lunch.
