A PINK taco?

Oh I am so thrilled to be taking part in Angel Jazzi's Taco Day

We all remember Jazzi don't we? The funniest, cutest and all round most adorable Scottie you could ever hope to meet. She left us far too soon.

Now Jazzi was world famous for her love of tacos, and what better way to remember this incomparable character than by sharing in her appreciation of her favourite foodstuff?

Oh look, there is something that Gail tells me is a taco on the table here. 

As tacos are not part of the Scottish diet, you will forgive the, er, 'unusual' interpretation of this dish from across the Pond.

Oh, I get it. This a PINK taco. 'Cos if there was one thing Jazzi loved almost as much as tacos, it was the colour pink. Gail and I  always looked forward to seeing her wearing her pretty pink dresses. Her she is modelling the 'Back to School' outfit, one of our favourites.

Mmmm, back to the taco. Although the combination of ingredients is unusual*, I think I might try some. For Angel Jazzi's sake, you understand.


Nom, nom, nom. I do wish Addi were here to share it with me. I could show her my manly scar too...

*Pink taco ingredients: ham, red onion, beetroot and sesame paste, radishes, prawn cocktail, and raspberries in yoghurt, all held in a soft taco shell which had been dipped in pink food dye and baked until crisp. 


  1. You did great Bertie. How creative to dye the shell pink!! Jazzi did love her pink!! I'm sure that Jazzi is smiling right now and yah, Addi wishes she could be with you too Bertie!!

    Diana and Addi and Jazzi

  2. Very creative. We thought you were using a piece of ham as the shell. Jazzi just loved pink. We know she'd love that taco.

  3. Crikey Bertie ... Good try mate and the pink idea is great but the ingredients????????? Bet Jazzi's looking down with a smile from ear to ear.

  4. What a great taco! Did you eat it all Bertie ? Including the radishes ?

  9. that is one excellent taco - except for the onion (pssss onion can be toxic to dogs) but we bet it was totally delish too

  10. Bertie you and Gail hit a home run on your Scotish tacos! Jazzi would 100% be chomping down on the pinkness with Scotttie gusto. Gail is a genius and might have want to put a copyright on that invention! Hugs

  17. Pink tacos, those are very creative, thanks for sharing the idea with us!

  18. Real men wear pink. In their beards. You're impressive, Bertie.


  19. Hmmmm Bertie - perhaps you could have a word to Gail about watching the step by step tutorial of making Tacos on my bloggie and create the same kinda thing for you next year?? You gotta say it nicely so as not to offend. However - we think the pink was a lovely offering given that it was Jazzi's fav colour .... but stretching my memory glands .... I am yet to remember her ever eating a creation like that. Good luck for next years. xxx
