I love it when a plan comes together. It rarely happens to me. Things always change or something unexpected pops up, but every now and then everything turns out just as good as you wanted them to, maybe even better. It is a wonderful feeling, even if that plan is only dinner.
So the plan was to cook the Braised Beef in Red Wine and then follow that up with some shredded beef tacos the next night. Well last night’s dinner turned out awesome which meant tonight’s dinner was gonna be just as good. I totally flew by the seat of my pants and the Shredded Beef Tacos turned out fantastic! I had to write everything down so I could use it again in the future. So here it is before I forget!
By the way, this is my one and only pepper I grew this year off of my one and only pepper plant. Ain’t it cute? Don’t forget to enter the giveaway!
