Over the past several days it finally feels like winter in California. While grocery shopping after work, I decided taco soup sounded good on a cold and wet day. Maggie has been close by on clean-up-patrol hoping for something tasty. So far only onion and garlic has fallen to the floor which are not Maggie’s idea of something tasty. You might be saying to yourself, “I’ve never heard of taco soup?”.

Neither had I until I visited Lisa’s friends, Francis and Nile, down south in Texas back at Christmas. It is simple to make and I have included Francis’ recipe as part of this choosing to be happy moment.
