    Too Hot To Cook Taco Salad Some of you may have seen this post previously from my previous blog, however, I thought since it was such a huge hit on that one I would post it here as well. Enjoy!! These past several weeks, it has been hotter than hell down here in North Carolina as it has been in most places in the United States.If you’re anything like me and my family, we don’t like hot food on hot days, which can sometimes make it a bit difficult to come up with a filling dinner for two adult males, one teen-aged male and a pregnant woman…oh yes, and myself.…
