Inflatable Bread Tacos

This is one meal that my mom used to make and I realized recently that I had not made for my younger kids and they loved it.  My one daughter named it "Inflatable Bread Tacos" and the name just stuck at our house for this new family favorite.  It is easy and quick to put together. Inflatable Bread Tacos (AKA Navajo Tacos) 2 cups flour 3/4 tsp salt 3 tsp baking powder 1 c  warm water Instructions: Combine the flour, salt and baking powder together.  Then add the water,  Mix until the dough forms.(you may need to add a little more flour or a little more water.  you want the dough to not be too sticky) Let the dough rest for 5 minutes. Divide your dough into 6 balls and roll out into 1/2 inch circles.   Fry each piece in a saucepan in about 1-2 inches of hot oil.  Fry until the dough puffs up and turns golden, then flip and do the other side (this happens pretty quickly). Set on a paper towel to drain the oil. Add your favorite taco toppings and enjoy

Mongolian Beef

    I have been working on my meal prep skills lately.  I cut up my meat and broccoli and cooked it the night before. So when I got home from work all I had to do was cook the rice and make the sauce. It was simple and oh so delicious! Mongolian Beef 1-2 lbs steak cut in to thin strips 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup soy sauce 3/4 cup brown sugar 2-3 minced garlic cloves 1 Tbsp corn starch oil 2-3 chopped green onions or 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion cooked in a little butter until soft Cook steak strip in a little oil.  Remove and set aside.  To the pan add a little bit of oil and the garlic. Cook until tender,  Then stir soy sauce and brown sugar.  Add corn starch to the 1/2 cup water mix  well and add to the rest of the ingredients.  Stir constantly until it comes to a boil.  Turn to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to mix.  If the sauce is not thick enough for your tastes continue to mix in corn starch 1 tsp at a time. If it is too thick add a little bit more
