Don't expect to eat that many tacos, but I do expect to panic due to my lack of taco eating and do things like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFp9D_Eue9M

I introduced my roommate* to the idea of Taco de Mayo, and she's gone completely nuts with the idea, eating tacos for every meal, which is impressive considering her extremely restricted diet. This evening, we decided to have some friends over for a full on taco night, and made delicious tacos for everyone. I doubt I'll get anywhere near 31 for the month, but I thought I'd add mine to the group total.

Joining this challenge because my crazy roommate dragged me into it after I found out that she dragged our other roommate into it too. (Nevermind that I'm the crazy roommate that let her.)

I don't expect to actually eat 31 tacos this month, but stranger things have happened I guess!

Taco #1 (5/2) - Grilled Fish taco
Taco #2 (also 5/2) - Shrimp taco
Tacos 3-12 - mostly crock pot carne asada, one ice cream taco
