You say tomato, I say tamale. A tamale is a corn-based dough, typically cooked in a banana leaf or corn husk. You can add any fillings you like, from chicken to shrimp to cheese or all of the above. In Mexico tamales are usually enjoyed at celebrations such as parades or holiday gatherings, though we think it’s fine to serve them any old day of the week.
15. Taco Tuesdays
Before we get ahead of ourselves, tacos are appropriate every day of every week. But Taco Sunday just didn’t have the same ring to it. You’ve probably had tacos before, and we’re going to go ahead and assume you loved them. Because what is there not to love about delicious meat or fish nestled in a crispy shell and smothered in guacamole? Our point exactly. Kids love tacos, too, thanks to the fun crunchy shell and build-it-yourself aspect. For school lunch ideas you might want to leave the ingredients separate so the shell stays crunchy (not soggy) and the toppings (guacamole, sour cream, salsa etc.) are fresh when lunch-time hunger hits.
