Have you got a dishwasher reorganizer in the family?
And it seems there's no easy cure.
No matter how carefully I place the plates, pack the cups or hang the knives, our resident reorganizer sneaks back to the dishwasher, quietly opens the door and proceeds to refile all of the dishes I've just loaded (!).
It's been going on for about 20 years now.
Can anyone else relate?
(So what do we think... is it a nature or nurture thing? A confluence of influences thing? Any hope for reform?)
Mexican food is in my top three all-time favorite cuisine types (if you must know, Thai, Indian, Mexican, generally in that order). I adore the breadth of flavors and ingredients that typically characterize Mexican food and tacos are a family favorite.
The pre-packaged taco seasonings are convenient (and often yummy) but when you investigate the contents of these packages you begin to wonder: MSG, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, silicone dioxide (an "anticaking" agent), ethoxyquin (etho who? a preservative) and enough sodium to fill your daily quota and then some. On balance, I'd much rather spend the extra 5 minutes creating my own mixture and I think you'll find the taste worthwhile too.
