Full of great texture and even better flavors, these Tacos are sure to be a winner in your house too!
It’s Friday, we’re halfway through November, Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. I haven’t even begun to think about Christmas shopping. Well, that’s a lie, I’ve thought about it, but I haven’t even started to put together a list of what to get for who..and then actually going shopping for it.
In years past, I usually wait until after Thanksgiving, Christmas shopping has always been enjoyable for me, I consider it part of the holidays..just like sugar cookie making parties and Pierogi parties in our family, I really love Christmas shopping. I love the decorations in the stores, especially the malls, I love the lights and the Christmas music, I love the general atmosphere, I love the red cup and a hot latte while doing it, I love buying gifts for everyone else. And most of the time, I don’t really mind the hussle and bussle either, though I do wish more people would slow down and appreciate whats around them..since it only lasts a month..this year, less.
Nonetheless, The time between Thanksgiving and New Years is my most favorite, favorite, FAVORITE time of year. I get giddy with excitement just thinking about it. Living in a hotel through the holidays this year is going to kill me, I’m already so sad thinking about it, BUT I’m going back to Maine for a week in December, and I know my moms house will be full of Christmas cheer..the movies, the music, the cookies, the cocktails..I could not be more excited just thinking about it!
Well I guess all this Christmas talk and Tacos don’t exactly mix, but so what? You still need to eat food during the holidays, its not all about the sweets. (Is It?) Plus you will love these tacos! Why? Because I said so! No, because they are full of texture, the red cabbage and the sliced apples add loads of crunch, and they’re tossed in an apple cider vinaigrette. Flavaa flaaav. (I miss the old MTV…the real MTV) The steak soaks in an apple cider marinade..clearly we’re all about the apple cider here, and its fantastic!
Cook the steak, assemble the tacos, and add whatever toppings you so desire. I threw on some gorgonzola because I love it and am going through a huge gorgonzola craze currently, but I definitely think Cotija would be a perfect option and is nowhere near as strong as gorgonzola, but equally as tasty..it’s actually one of my favorite cheeses for tacos! So, since you need a little real food in your life this time of year, definitely add these tacos to your dinner menu!
