One of our favorite meals to have early fall is homemade tacos. There is just something about eating autumn colors; the vibrant red, the striking orange, & the deep brown that make this meal seem like a delicacy.

Depending how much time is available, we jump between making our own taco seasoning & purchasing an already made packet. For those of you out there who have that extra time, & wanted to try a taco seasoning, give this one a shot:


1 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients. Store in an airtight container. We normally use three tbsp per pound of ground beef used.

This is the first fall that Daycen has been able to participate in our of our taco nights; which to my surprise he was THRILLED! Our normally picky eater went crazy for these. He had his rolled up in soft tortilla shells.

I'm excited to see fall coming around the corner. The leaves outside our windows have started to turn a yellowish hue & the temperature has been dropping rapidly. We've been able to pull our sweaters, scarves, & boots (well, the one pair I have left) out of the closet. Harvest festivals are right around the corner, as well as baby sister. I have a feeling this is going to be the best fall season we've encountered yet. Not to mention, my husband has already learned to deliver the correct autumn treat.
