Foodie Friday

Hello, Dear Ones and welcome to Foodie Friday hosted by our Dear Michael Lee at Designs by Gollum. Pop on in to see her and you'll see lots of delicious foods and can get a few new recipes.

I'd like to share with you today one of our favorite dishes - Taco Salad. After all, we don't cook very fancy here at Note Songs. :) This is a really simple dish, but it will make your tiny tummy very happy!

I don't use a recipe so you can adjust accordingly to your family.

Chop enough lettuce for each serving. Or if your lazy you can buy the shredded lettuce at the grocery store and just open the bag. :)

Chop enough tomatoes and onions for each serving.

We like guacamole on ours so take the goody out of the avocado. Cut into the avocado and run your knife around the entire thing. It should pop open and then just remove the goody. Mush all of the goody up with a fork, adding salt, pepper, garlic powder, diced onions and a smidge of picante sauce. Continue to mush up all the ingredients and then add some lemon or lime juice so it will keep its pretty greenness.

Set this all aside and fry up your hamburger meat ~ adding salt and pepper to taste. Pour off the excess grease and add some onions and cilantro.

Put some fritos on your plates, then the lettuce, the hamburger meat and tomatoes. Add the guacamole to the top and some sour cream if you like, then top off with shredded cheese.
We use Catalina dressing as our dressing.

That's it and it's very yummy!

Now pop on over to Designs by Gollum and Happy Foodie Friday!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Speedy Gonzales

Spoken: It was a moonlit night in old Mexico.
I walked alone between some old

adobe haciendas.
Suddenly, I heard the plaintive cry of a young Mexican girl.

(female voice singing a series of "La-la-la's)

You better come home, Speedy Gonzales
Away from tannery row
Stop alla your a-drinkin'
With that floozie named Flo
Come on home to your adobe
And slap some mud on the wall
The roof is leakin' like a strainer
There's loadsa roaches in the hall

Speedy Gonzales, why dontcha come home?
Speedy Gonzales, how come ya leave me all alone?

Spoken in a male Mexican accent:
Hey, Rosita-I hafta go shopping downtown

for my mudder-
she needs some tortillas and chili peppers.

(female voice singing a series of "La-la-la's)

Your doggy's gonna have a puppy
And we're runnin' outta coke
No enchiladas in the icebox
And the television's broke
I saw some lipstick on your sweatshirt
I smelled some perfume in your ear
Well if you're gonna keep on messin'
Don't bring your business back a-here

Mmm, Speedy Gonzales, why dontcha come home?
Speedy Gonzales, how come ya leave me all alone?

Spoken in a male Mexican accent:
Hey, Rosita-come queek-down at the cantina

they giving green stamps with tequila!!
