That's what Judah asked Drew the other night when we had Taco Tuesday.
I don't recall how this started, but somewhere along the way my children started making faces out of their torillas. Most of my kids have not been a fan of tacos. My solution has been to make them "Angel plates" which I used to have when I was little on summer vacation in Red River, New Mexico at a Mexican restaurant called Sundance. It is still there and about 3 or 4 summers ago we took the kids back there and they got to experience the "Angel plate" for themselves. An "Angel plate is all the fixings of a taco (ground beef, shredded cheese, beans, rice, shredded lettuce, and pico) all separate on a plate. They give you your tortillas on the side as well, which I guess is where this tortilla face tradition originated. I mean what else do you do with a plain tortilla? I wouldn't know, because I like 'em filled with goodness.
My husband and I were sitting in church before Mass shortly after we were confirmed into the Catholic Church. Both of our gazes drifted to a pew close by where a family filled up the whole pew. Granted it was one of the shorter pews, not a full length one. I can't remember who said it to whom, but one of us said, "I hope we fill up a pew with our family one day." We agreed it would be wonderful. And so that is what we're hoping for...a pew all our own.
People think they have to find their soulmate to have a good marriage. You get married, and after 20 years of loving, bearing and raising children, meeting challenges- then you'll have "created" your soulmate. -Diane Sollee
