I cleaned a whole bunch of bags of chicken and turkey carcasses, beef bones, pork bones, and assorted meat trimmings out of the freezer earlier this week. We need to make room in there, at least, we hope we do. We may or may not have a really good reason to need space. So, in case all goes as planned (I’ll tell you after – don’t want to jinx it), we’ve been eating from the freezer as much as we can.
We had tacos the other night and I’d also meant to make cornbread but I didn’t have time.
So I made some the next night.
And, just for kicks, I threw in some of the leftovers from taco night, too.
Very easy, and a huge hit with my kids, my husband, and me. I should have made more.
But I’m leaping ahead of myself, as usual….

And then last week I got an email from Helene Stapinski of the New York Times. She said she was doing a piece on spaghetti tacos and wanted to know if she could talk to me.
Yes, I'll admit it right off the bat.
My kids sometimes watch iCarly. Which, if you haven't heard of this show, is where the idea for these tacos came from. Carly's older brother, Spencer, came up with the idea, apparently.
Anyway, Alex and Julia had been requesting spaghetti tacos for some time, and so I finally made some.
