I am addicted to grocery delivery. 

There is a scene in the original Freaky Friday, with Jodi Foster, where she gets groceries delivered, and it stuck with me. Just this nostalgic vision of adulthood I always wanted. And now, I’m living it. My best 1970’s/2023 life. 

But with the job of having my shopping done for me, comes the reality that I can’t always control what happens when they are out of an ingredient. 

This dish started as stuffed taco shells, but thanks to a quick cheese tortellini pasta replacement, it’s now become a way easier Taco Pasta Casserole that my kids devoured.

No stuffing, just tossing everything together and popping it in the oven. The perfect meal.
