First off, if you missed Wednesday’s post, be sure to go back and enter to win some seriously delicious chocolate! We’re quickly approaching the time of year when I get too lazy/hot to cook. Okay, maybe there are times year round when I’m too lazy to cook, but when it gets warm I can’t be bothered to do much of anything. Enter the slow cooker. I’m sure everyone is aware of the amazing powers of the slow cooker, so I won’t try to sell you on it. Just throw everything in and come back later for a tasty dinner.
I find it hard to define a #1 favorite food, so I’ll just say that tacos are always in the top three. One of my mantras is “Always say yes to tacos” and it’s never steered me wrong. My current favorite are TVP tacos (coming soon, likely with another giveaway!), but black bean tacos are a good whole foods way to nom on my favorite noms. Yeah, I’ll probably say nom like 20 more times this post – it’s just the way I eat tacos, I om nom nom them. [Will someone make me a shirt that says “I om nom Tacos”?]
If you’re feeling particularly lazy mid-summer, you could just throw in a few teaspoons of taco seasoning and some dried minced garlic. I’m not quite there yet so I took the time to balance the seasonings just the way I like them. If you’re not feeling tacos, these make a great refried bean-type of side – just add a little extra water and mash.
