We’re all familiar with the phrase “Taco Tuesday”, but is it something that you actually do in your house? So many people tend to refer to Tuesday as the day for Taco’s, but very few people that I know actually make and eat tacos on Tuesday.

In our house, Taco Tuesday is a thing! Not only does it have a nice ring to it, but it’s something that we look forward to weekly as well. I am excited to introduce you to the sponsor of this post, Fresh Cravings.
