Weeknight Taco Party


A few weeks ago Drew and I hosted a taco party as we had two dear friends visiting town! We made some yummy Margaritas, bought our favorite salsas from Hugo’s Tacos and slow braised a nice quality pork shoulder from McCall’s Butcher. Our friends brought the sides like rice, beans, dessert and beer.

Everything was delicious and we had a blast with our pals. I hope this meal magically reappears on my table when I get home from work on Cinco de Mayo.
