This is a quick post and a bit of a choose your own adventure: for the delicious topping Lime Crema. This is a fresh alternative to just plain sour cream, which you can make the hard way or the easy way. I'm not going to lie to you, I always go easy - you get the delicious zippy taste without having to wait 24 hours. Because ain't nobody got time for that.

|Mmm Bulgogi Beef|
When you're known around town as "that crazy girl that only eats tacos," people are always eager to talk shop. Mostly I field questions, but every once in a while I get a recommendation. Before she left us for the Great Ontario Way, my dear friend Kim gave me quite possibly the best heads up I've ever received: the best tacos in Halifax are at a Vietnamese takeout joint called Indochine Banh Mi. I'm not sure what that says about Halifax, but I can assure you that Kim was 100% correct. So come along with me as I rhapsodize on the amazingness that is the Bulgogi Beef Taco.

This one is going out to all my American friends (and foes). I know Thanksgiving is coming up for you guys sometime soon-ish, so I made these comfort food tacos just for you. No, they're not made of turkey - this is a traditional beef stew with potatoes added in for maximum starch enjoyment. It could easily be made in a slow cooker, but I expedited the process and cooked it in a pot for about 2 hours. You can cook it for longer - your beef will get nice and soft - but I think you get the same great taste with this method. So be thankful for tacos (and your family or whatever)
