Rachel’s Team Pick:
Earlier today, my friend Batia introduced me to the taco box.
Me: Maybe someone someday will love me enough to make me a taco box.
Batia: My future is me making myself a taco box. Is this liberation?
This is a taco box you guys:
Do you get it? It’s everything you need for tacos. In a box. Also flowers. And beer. Guinness wouldn’t be my choice, but let’s not nitpick. There’s also some kale, which is an excellent decision. Also I have the exact same tupperware that the brown rice comes in. I’m hard pressed to think of anything I really, truly need in life that is not found in the taco box.
In the original post on The Kitchn, the taco box is presented as a gift for new parents, so that they don’t have to fit taco-making into their infant-centric schedule. It’s in the same vein as dropping off lasagna or casseroles for stressed or put-upon friends. I’m hoping I don’t have to have a kid to merit a taco box, though. I think there are many occasions in life that are well suited to being commemorated with a taco box. For instance:
+ new job
+ losing a job
+ finding a really perfect pair of boots
+ your favorite show being canceled
+ winning 1-3 Weblog Awards
+ not having any tacos
+ having your car totaled
+ getting a super cute haircut
+ new episodes of Julie and Brandy in your Taco Box Office
+ finding a new apartment
+ learning how to knit
+ Valentine’s Day
+ Won’t You Be My Neighbor Day
What are you waiting for? This is a cold, cruel world, and needs more taco boxes in it. Be the taco box you want to see in the world.
On a more mature note, I think this is really awesome and cute
MAGIC! It’s like a real-life cooking show with all the ingredients portioned and ready to go.
Rachel, you’re about to be inundated with taco boxes. Get ready.
i think i might just assemble all my dinner ingredients in a box before i start cooking tonight to make it seem more like a taco box
I think the next logical step to taco / other various dinner boxes are picnics. You can probably guess my feelings re: picnics.
Yeah. And picnic is just a other word for BBQ!!
Sorry Rachel, the Varsity BBQ Team will be crashing this picnic…which is now a BBQ, with tacos of course….and maybe tamales bc e makes good ones…and Danielle and Natalie bake like mofos….Cap and Jader will get the booze, guess Im grilling….
Ok, sorry–what were ylu saying?
Oh yeah, the taco box. I so need one of those. :-)
I would cook ALL the time if the necessary/delicious ingredients magically appeared pre-portioned at my doorstep, accompanied by flowers and beer.
I’ve been saying that for years, but now it’s really a thing!
if you wanna be my lover, you gotta make me a taco box.
I put my taco in a box for you.
specifically, a taco box with avocados and salsa verde in it
Make it last forever–dinner never ends!
this was awesome to begin with and now I’m at school with Spice Girls stuck in my head, randomly giggling to myself over “taco box” so its even more awesome!!!
