Alton Brown’s Taco Seasoning

Alton Brown’s Taco Seasoning


Good morning!

I hope you all had a great Memorial day. My little family went up to South Lake Tahoe to our family cabin for the weekend. We went hiking a couple of times and the kids absolutely loved it.

The cabin was so much fun, too. It was a bit cold so we had to get the fireplace going along with two heaters, but we all had fun.
