What I Made for Dinner: January 25, 2009

Taco bar with yellow rice, sweet corn, and refried black beans.

Aren't tacos great on Sunday nights? Everyone can make his own with exactly what he wants on it. No fighting. Eli doesn't like tacos at all, but he likes to say "MEAT!" and this gives him the opportunity.

I used the leftover flank steak from Thursday night and simmered it in water with taco seasoning until it was ultra-tender.

The rice is, apparently, a federal government-sanctioned recipe. Several years ago, Chuck's office had a nutritionist in as part of an employee health program. (Your tax dollars at work!) Anyway, he brought a bunch of recipes for healthy Mexican cooking, and one of them was for yellow rice with peas, seasoned with turmeric and cilantro and a bunch of other stuff. It's really good.
