The five year long wait is over.
But first let me backtrack...
Here in Aberdeen, we are not blessed with an abundance of Mexican food outlets. So when it comes to celebrating Taco Day with our dear (now departed) friend Jazzi, a soupçon of creative improvisation has been required.
I wonder if any of you remember our 2011 effort, the Aberdeen MacTaco? (Haggis and oatcakes were involved and actually, it was rather good).
In 2012, my Human Grandad was in hospital and we missed the event entirely.
The situation was not much better in 2013 - in fact some might say worse - when Gail forgot until the last minute and I ended up with a photo of a taco, printed from the internet…
Last year things just got weird, when a certain human decided we should celebrate Jazzi's favourite colour and, with the aid of some food dye, fashioned a taco out of 100% pink ingredients.
Well this year I opted to take matters into my own paws.
A short session on Google and I discovered that Uncle Sabino's Mexican Restaurant & Takeaway is now open on Little Belmont Street, only a mile away from our house.
So I suggested that Gail might like to bicycle into town and pick up a REAL taco for me.
You know, sometimes she is surprisingly obedient.
Mmm these tacos are yummy. Wee Jazzi had good taste, for sure.
And didn't Gail do well too? If the oil price continues to drop, I'd say she has a promising future as a taco delivery lady...
