Tuesdays are for Tacos!

Happy Taco Tuesday beautiful people!

I have yet to meet anyone that dislikes tacos. Is that even possible? Probably not!

This past weekend, my family celebrated my little sister’s high school graduation with a party and a taco man! I’m feeling inspired from that party and the day itself, so in today’s post, I’m going to provide you with all the recipes you need for a festive and yummy taco night! I wish that I was creative enough to provide my own recipes… maybe one day!
