submitted by Brandon Pomeroy I have kept this prayer by the computer in our home for over a year and end up reading it often. It was composed by Rafael Cardinal Merry del Val, Pope Pius X’s Secretary of State, around 1900 but is certainly timeless. When striving to live more simply, the first hurdle is to be more humble. In this prayer I find comfort and strength to move down and out, closer to where Jesus works.

After a great meal at the KC Taco Company and a “portobello shroom” taco I could not stop thinking about, I decided to take my taco game to the next level—I bought restaurant style taco holders.
Then I threw a taco party and tried to think of and serve many toppings (see below). In reality it was a bit overwhelming! To make-your-own-tacos you only need one or two fillings, a few sauces and some toppings. Pick out your favorites for an easy summer meal!
Tortillas: Small corn or flour tortillas (heated up in the oven or in a pan with light oil)
Fillings: Gardein fish fillets, crab cakes, or chipotle lime chicken fingers, black beans (sautéed with onion, garlic and spices), mushrooms (sautéed in coconut oil), chorizo/diced potato and onion (made with Soyrizo), sautéed veggies
Sauces: Salsas, hot sauces, garlic aioli, vegan sour cream, BBQ sauce
Toppings: corn, diced tomatoes, avocados, lettuce, cabbage, black olives, vegan cheese, jalapeno peppers, red onions, green onions, sunflower seeds, cilantro
