I don't know about you, but my grocery shopping gets done once a week every Sunday. Typically I plan out my meals for the week to buy accordingly, but sometimes an unexpected craving comes along that requires buying a whole new load of groceries and ingredients. Cravings like tacos.
For whatever reason I never plan tacos, but when the desire strikes I MUST have them. But I had zero ingredients for tacos (well, okay I had two. Lime and avocado. Whatever.) so making them would require buying ground beef, lettuce, salsa, sour cream, cheese...you get the picture. An excess of food and a strain on my wallet. Too much when I already had plenty of food at home, but I needed to have tacos. So I stopped at the store to buy flour tortillas and headed home determined to make it happen with what I already had. Damn am I glad I decided to be financially responsible because Asian Pork Tacos were produced!
I'm Ali! Living it up in Brooklyn. I love cooking, baking, crafting, crocheting - you name it! Most of what I cook is healthy for you (and equally delicious) with the occasional "not-healthy" meal (but so worth it). My passion truly lies with inspiring others not only to cook at home but to try new foods in the process!
