Lost tacos

Well Lost was disappointing. It just raised so many more questions! We (me, dominick, and andy) watched the summary episode and the premiere (We missed the second episode, and so I had to go back and watch it late) and thought up some theories as we were watching. SPOILER ALERT! I talk about the newest episodes. If you haven't seen them, don't read this part.

1. The String Theory: Metaphysics and what not. Parallel universes are just messing everybody up! The explosion caused two different universes to be created, one where they were sent to the old hatch, and one where the plane crash never happened.
2. The Writes are Messing With Us: Maybe the scenes on the plane are what will end up happening at the end of the season and they just haven't fixed it yet. But in my mind, this counts as a dream, because it's basically saying that the last five seasons we watched just didn't happen. And that is BS my friends!
3. The Garden of Eden: This is one that I came up with during season one, but had kind of forgotten about until now. I think that the island is the garden of eden, or maybe a rebuilt garden of eden. Hence why there are others who were there before dharma (they're angels) and Richard, who never ages, is the head angel. Also during the summary episode, they referred to Jacob as a spiritual guide, which in my mind also implies angel like figure. ALSO the bad john is the smoke monster (I always referred to the smoke monster as the hand of God because it seemed to just fix stuff) so maybe he's like a mean messenger for the spirits?
Buttttt, in the end of the second episode he tells Richard, "Nice to see you out of your chains." So is Richard bad? Or was a prisoner of some kind?

Dominick thinks that the last one can't be true, because there's no fiery sword. I think it'd be really cool if they made it a weird spiritual thing. And I think that parallel universes is kind of selling out a bit. Like I said, that's basically a dream. Nonsense.

Anyway! For dinner last night I made tacos. Well, I'm calling them "Pantry Tacos" because I just used what we had. Here's how to make them!
What you really need:
1-2 lb ground beef (depending on how many people you're feeding)
1/2 an onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
Taco seasoning (Or a combo of cumin, chili powder, cayenne, oregano etc)

Optional goodies:
Pico de gallo or salsa
Sour cream

First, chop up the onion and garlic. And if you're like me and have issues planning ahead, put the frozen ground beef in the microwave to let it defrost.

Put some oil in a skillet over med-high heat. Once the pan is warm, add the onions and let them cook down for about 3 minutes.

Add the garlic and let that cook for about 2 minutes. Then add the ground beef.

Brown the beef and then drain out all that nasty meat juice. Seriously, it's gross. Get rid of it. Once all that's gone, throw in some taco seasoning! We have a costco size jar of taco seasoning so I was set on seasonings, but if you're not, definitly use cumin and cayenne, they make all the difference. Stir it all up and let the seasonings make the meat all delicous and taco-ey.
While that's cooking, grab some tortillas and wrap them in paper towels. Put them in the microwave for 30-45 seconds.
Now is where the optional goodies come in. We happened to have taco appropriate stuff, but if you don't the meat is good just in tortillas. We had cheese slices, sour cream, some leftover cilantro, and pico de gallo.

So just use what you have and it will be delicious!

Hope you like it!
