Family Taco Night

This past Sunday was The Prince's last night home for Thanksgiving Break. By that point the leftovers were stretched thin and we were kinda tired of them anyway. I decided to break out my latest MyBlogSpark containing an Old El Paso family taco night prize pack which included a packet of original Old El Paso Taco Seasoning, a Cactus Chip & Dip Serving dish, a set of 3 Fiesta Chili Pepper serving dishes and a $10 gift card to purchase my taco fixings.

I sent The FireMarshall off to the store for our fixings and he picked up 2 Old El Paso Taco Kits, lettuce, salsa & hamburger meat. Princess Erin & Cara got everything ready and the rest of us just hung out around the kitchen telling stories & reminiscing about the holiday.

The Prize pack came with a recommendation to play El Tacodor™, the world’s only family taco night game. Basically the trivia game is supposed to keep the family laughing by challenging each other to quick fire trivia, wordplay and pantomime.

We didn't need the game to keep us entertained. The Steptoe Clan IS TNT - we know drama - and bring our own special brand of comedy and mischief.

If you want a game to play during a family dinner night visit http://www.eltacodor.com/ to download instructions, a score card, and a challenge sheet.

One of the best things about this family taco night was getting Princess Cara to eat something other that chicken, turkey or ham (and that's it, she don't want nuttin to do with no sides/veggies). She was able to help prepare the meat and then was very excited to put together her own taco with the ingredients she chose. I was impressed with her creativity and willingness to eat her taco's that SHE prepared. It made dinner time even more fun.

Check out that happy face!
