Michelle Palmer: Tacos for breakfast? Of course (recipe)

Grandma and mom had always told me to make sure you have the staples in house… ALWAYS! When you have butter, flour, milk, sugar, and eggs you will always be able to make something to fill your belly! During these times; these lessons from them have really come to mind.

Since families are spending more time together and parents have to teach classes. This idea is one to share. Life skill 101, aka cooking!

On my way to my orientation for this amazing dream job that I was to start that day, a former boss and one of my best clients had referred me to; I was called and told that “it would have be put on the back burner for now.” I had been planning menu ideas for quite a while; researching and developing.

This is a breakfast item that can be made with basic ingredients and is super simple. Too bad this is not Tuesday because of the classic comment “Taco Tuesday.”

I will admit it is not my concept; I did tweak it a bit. There is an actual “Taco Tuesday Club” here in Northern Nevada!

1.5 teaspoon sugar
