Patty, the way you make your taco salad is similar to how I make taco baskets. I start with the taco basket shell, then I add the meat layer, next the beans, then the salsa, the lettuce, tomato and onion layers come next then I finish the whole thing with the cheese and sour cream.
Now I can bake my baskets, (I used to fry them) and so everything has less fat, fewer calories and it still tastes wonderful.
Well said Patty. I forgot to mention in my post that I was also making taco salad for supper. I picked up a bag of salt free tortilla at the commissary the other day just for the salad. They are gluten free. Padrinos brand. Comes in a brick colored bag.
How do you make you taco salad besides the lettuce, tomato, green onion, shredded cheese, salsa, and I use a f/f sour cream. I brown the meat and add f/f or Lite Catalina dressing to the meat. Tonight I added a can of rinsed and drained black beans.

Girls, While we were eating lunch out today, I happened to notice that I was not the fattest person in the restaurant. In fact, it dawned on me, that since losing the 60 pounds, I have been a lot of places, and have not been the largest person there...I cannot tell you how good that made me feel.
It gave me incentive to keep moving forward today. I still have a lot of weight to lose. But that feeling, oh my, it just felt so good.
I can remember being at a restaurant, and some kid was staring at me. His Mom told him to quit staring at me, just because I was fat...I wanted to crawl into a hole and pull the dirt over me, I felt so low. I pretended that I didn't hear it, but hear it, I did. It made me feel like a second class citizen.
No more, ladies. We are not second class citizens. We are vivacious ladies, working toward better health. We only fail, if we give up. Don't let other people make you ashamed of yourself. We are here, we are getting slimmer, and stronger and healthier. Other people, well, let them walk in our shoes for a few days...that's the nice way to say it. I was going to tell them where to go, but I won't...lol
my lesson for today. Don't ever give up. Each time we have to start over, that's wonderful, that we can start over. What I eat for today, will not make me fail. If I have a bad day, well so be it, a bad eating day. Get out there, get on with what you need to do, to be healthier...
It is spring. The weather changes by the minute. Sunny, then rain, then sunny etc...
I must go out to clean out my car. I will be taking a friend to the doctor on Monday and he has only one leg so I can't have him slipping as he gets into the car. His wife will be in the back seat and right now there are many bags of clothing in the back seat waiting for a garage sale. So many things to think about.
The snow just above us on the hillsides must be melting, there is a lot of fog up there. I can't see the trees at all.
I need to get underway today, but I don't feel very energetic. I need a push folks!
Good Afternoon. A nice sunny day here and DH went to Home Depot and got some flowers to plant. I notice they are mostly orange and I am not an orange person and he knows that. I didn't see any pansies and those would have been what I would have gotten. Oh Well, Any color by the side of the drive way and house will be welcome. My lilacs are blooming. That poor tree is so bent.
Patty, I'm sorry you have had so much stomach trouble. Sounds like what DD went through. I can imagine diarrhea and constipation but not at the same time. I get the latter right after my chemo but this time has been better as I've been taking Milk of Magnesia. You are one sharp lady to find a pair of shoes that fit at such a bargain.. I guess the Good Will and Salvation Army are alike that you just have to go in often to find the bargains. Why can't you have corn chips with your taco salad. Seems like DD said she found some chips that were gluten free. Yesterday in our paper was a recipe for a crustless coconut pie that was gluten free. It did have a bit of gluten free flour in it. I have a crustless coconut pie recipe using Bisquick and Betty Crocker makes a gluten free Bisquick. DD said the pan cakes she made with the box I bought her weren't bad at all.
Louise, I bet you have a busy weekend planned. Thank goodness the problems in Ma. seem to have come to an end. So sad.

Good morning Girls, How have you been? I have been battling stomach cramping, bloating, gas, constipation and diahhrea, yuk..seems that I am becoming gluten intolerant...bah...oh well, I can still eat, just not any grains. For me, I think it will be easier to just stay away from them completely instead of trying to find some that don't effect me...we shall see on that.
Supposed to go to town today.
Taco salad for supper, of course mine will have no chips
Nothing else to report. I have not taken any pics yet, so no new pics...
just got back from town. I found a pair of walking shoes at Goodwill, brand new in my size for $4.23...They are the kind I wear, and they are usually 59.99 at the store. These are Hush puppies Bounce shoes.
