A Week of Tacos – In Honour of National Taco Day

For some reason, tacos are EVERYTHING. It’s not hard when you think about it: 1) they’re quick to make, 2) anything can be a taco (within reason), 3) they’re delicious, 4) anything can be a taco (it’s such a good reason, we mentioned it twice!).
Today is national taco day, and we wondered: 1) would it be possible to eat a taco every day for seven days without repeating? 2) how many tacos can you eat before you become one?
In short, here are a few of our favourite tacos, with one for every day of the week.

The Monday Taco 

sensible, ordinary, low-key
