Lower-Fat Tacos

Previously I would fry my corn tortillas when making tacos. I have found a much better way and definitely less fat..
First I cook my meat in a large frying pan. I do add taco seasoning, the one with only herb ingredients in it not the additives.
Grate up your cheese or use slices like I do.
Cook corn tortillas on the grill with spray oil on both sides till done. Add meat and cheese to the centers and fold over.
Put lid back on and grill till crispy or however you like it. Remove and keep going. I can only do two tortillas at a time.
Add your fav salsa, lettuce, and avos. Enjoy
I also made quesadillas with cheese and left over meat. It made a great lunch.

Deck Update

Our new deck is finished. It took hubby 2 days. Now we have our chairs and tables. Fortunately, it has been fairly cool in the evening with a breeze in the shade of our RV. Yep, we also have the best neighbors around and a prime view. No one in the park has this view. Others have corner views but are subjected to stored RV's or the club house.
When there is shade you can find Steve and I out here in our wooden chairs or eating on our table after we BBQ.

6 inches off the ground and stakes in the ground for those gully washers

Best friends. The donkey follows these two horses

What a view!

Great neighbors. This calf must have had a very different daddy.
