Taco Tailgate

Leave a comment

Less than stellar weather did not deter us from rockin’ out with our tacos out

When our friend Brian called and shared with us his vision of a taco tailgate with friends, I was immediately swept up in the excitement. Me being the dreamer and my husband being the planner, we sprung into action with our contribution to the tailgate. Having just come down off a super successful batch of pork carnitas I made on Cinco de Mayo, we knew that we had a winner for the taco filling.

What could be more All-American than baseball and carnitas tacos?

And I don’t mean to brag, but we always have requests for my pretty much famous guacamole, so that was a no brainer.

Demonstrating the always popular “Taco within a Taco” technique

Note to self: Don’t let the bachelor determine on his own the amount of taco fixings to buy. We ended up with 3 entire bags of shredded lettuce, 7 pounds of shredded cheese (that isn’t an exaggeration), 5 containers of fresh salsa, 4 huge bags of tostitos and 2 quarts of sour cream. There were 9 of us.

I should mention that the only thing we ran out of was beer. Go figure. And I didn’t even drink any, if that’s what you’re thinking.

Random shenanigans

I am not a huge sports enthusiast, but I like to cheer for the home team and I remember going to Phillies games as a little girl, so they always hold a special place in my heart. I have a tendency to get really devastated if I invest a whole season following a team only for them to lose everything in some final playoff/series/bowl game. So I keep a guarded heart when it comes to getting super “into it” like some people do. Being a Philadelphia fan seems to bring along with it many opportunities for broken hearts. Plus, I’m just super fucking sensitive.

I would definitely say that the highlight of the day was spending time with friends and getting to eat all the delicious food. The weather generally blew (chilly, damp and scattered showers) and the Phillies lost. Oh well…We’ll always have tacos.
