They let you cram your ice-cold feet into the backs of their warm knees when you crawl into bed on a chilly winter night.
They bring you a sweet, salty and chocolate option when you call and ask them to make a snack stop on their way home from work.
They patiently wait for you to stop talking like an i can has cheezburger character, an unfortunate habit you picked up from spending too much time on Pinterest’s humor boards, even though they think misspelled captions above cats’ heads is the stupidest thing in the entire world.
(You do too, by the way, except, wait…no you don’t. That ish is hilarious!)
They give you their extra taco when the kid at the drive-thru screwed up your order and forgot to include a supreme taco in your meat & potato burrito combo meal, resulting in a less than adequate meal to fill your grumbling stomach.
Ah yes, while I know I can always count on Ben for warm feet, awesome snack options, and a good-natured laugh – he knows he can always count on me for… tacos.
That’s true love, people.
Ok, it’s like this. A couple weeks ago Ben and I were heading home from a friend’s house when his empty stomach started callin’. Feeeeed me! it shouted.
A certain fast-food taco joint that rhymes with Paco Don’s happened to be in the immediate area, so we swooped by to get my man a meal.
It’d been years since I had me a good fast-food taco (I suppose good is relative) so naturally I tacked on a cough double taco value meal cough to his order. We paid, grabbed the bag, and sped home.
Ben was halfway through his ginormous – seriously, HUGE – meat and potato burrito when he noticed its right hand man – the supreme taco – was missing from the bag, which we failed to check before leaving the restaurant. The horror!
Seeing my beloved so crushed at the loss caused the love to well up into my soul, and I did the damn thing. I handed over my extra taco. I know. Wife of the year, right here.
As good as it made me feel to fork over the delectable, greasy and indulgent taco…I’ve been seriously missing it ever since. Well tonight I decided to do something about it, and made Breakfast Tacos for dinner!
A bit healthier, no? And ready in under 10 minutes!
All I did was scramble up 1 egg + 1 egg white with salt & pepper, then layered it into taco shells along with cheddar cheese, tomatoes and fresh avocado. A dash of salsa on top sealed the deal!
Eat your heart of Paco Don’s.
If calories (and cholesterol) didn’t count, what fast-food item would you indulge in right now?
I would totally indulge in B-Bops fries. They are like McDonald’s fries but 1000% better!! That or Arby’s curly fries. Ok, basically any fast-food fries.
