Mark June 13, 2011 on your calendar as the day I had probably the greatest idea of anyone. I’ll claim at least in the last 24 hours nobody has had such a great idea as this:
When you are grocery shopping and you consider what you might have for lunch and all you really think of is sandwiches and salads you head straight to the section of the super market that sells pre-cooked and sliced lunch meat. Maybe you are fancy and actually go to the deli but there you have it. It’s going to be a varied selection of beef, ham, chicken, or turkey. It all generally looks the same and, honestly, tastes the same too.
Now think about all the times you’ve made tacos at home and all the taco meat is gone but you still have 1/2 a head of lettuce, some sour cream, and 3-5 tortillias. What happens to those tortillias? Well if you are 5 years old or hate food, they become “quesadillias” but if you are anything like me they just kind of sit around and are forgotten. After a few occasions of tacos you end up throwing out several, mostly empty packages of shells.
Now my idea is that in addition to the traditional lunch meats, the stores should offer little plastic containers of taco meat. Brilliant?! Yes, I thought so too. Think about all the amazing lunch possibilities! Nachos, taco salads, or straight up tacos. By making taco meat more accessible and less of a hassle, your lunch selections and therefore your life will become so much more awesome.
