Complete The Meal

To complete the meal you will need to gather the rest of your essential nutrients. Here are some suggestions to include with your Flatbread Tacos:

  • A bowl of watermelon and grapes
  • Corn tortilla chips and salsa or guacamole
  • A large glass of  some “High-Quality H20” (The Waterboy 1998)

NOTE: This meal will require a lot of room in your kitchen to make successfully. So, unless you are a neat and tidy chef, be prepared to make a huge mess assembling all of the pieces to this tasty treat. It helps to pile up each used dish in the sink immediately after you are done using it so it stays out of the way. A useful alternative is to just assign someone else to clean up after you while you slave away at making dinner for them –  it’s the least they can do!
