Everyone who knows me knows that I love tacos. It's indisputable. The sun rises in the east… and I love tacos. So it's with great sadness that I mark the passing of Mr. Glen Bell, founder of the Taco Bell chain.
Glen W. Bell Jr., the innovator and entrepreneur who tapped an unsated hunger for Mexican fare as Americans discovered fast food, creating Taco Tia, El Taco and in 1962 his signature Taco Bell, has died. He was 86.
Thank you, Mr. Bell, for helping to bring tacos to the masses (and for all those late nights that your drive thru sat open in college!) Thank you.
Sounds like our good friends at Taco Bell are coming out with a breakfast menu that is being sampled in Omaha, NE:
Taco Bell will serve eight breakfast items, including a sausage and bacon grilled burrito; a guacamole bacon grilled burrito; a bacon and egg taco; and Bell breakfast potatoes. Omaha will taste-test the recipes as a test case for the rest of the country.
More ice & snow today. Yuck. Luckily all the schools are closed so it looks like most folks stayed home and the traffic was very light.
I called my team this morning and told them to stay home, too.
Am I just a nice boss? Nah. Turns out that it's "TACO DAY" in the employee cafeteria so… more for me! 😉
I'll say this – this ice & snow has totally my island fever. BOAT DRINKS!!!
For those of you scoring at home, that's five Big Kev Taco Day's so far this year, or roughly once every ten meals. FIESTA!!
2007 has all the makings of being a very good year. Two days in, I'm two for two on delicious crunchy beef tacos. Merrin let me enjoy taco night last night and work obliged with tacos in the cafe today.
I don't know how long I can (or should) keep this up, but for now – viva la taco!
Taco Kevin here. Is the taco universe ready for flavored crunchy taco shells?? I think not.
For whatever reason, I have become quite the fan of latin guitar music. I don't know why – maybe it's all the tacos, maybe it's the peppers & cilantro in the garden, or maybe I'm destined for another trip back to Mexico. I don't know.
Anyway, if you haven't sampled the fine work of Creol (iTunes link), I highly recommend it. Their Latin Guitar – Acoustic Guitar album (iTunes link) is really nice for just playing in the background.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some margartias to make. 🙂
I think almost everyone knows that I have a reputation for liking tacos. From our weekly "taco night" to my connessuar-like quest to try tacos at any Mexican/Tex-Mex place in town, I think it's safe to say… I like tacos. I think that's why even little G Cooper calls me "Taco Kevin" sometimes.
Apparently I'm not alone, though. Glenn Bell didn't mind tacos, either. So much so that he started a restaraunt serving Mexican food & named it after himself. You may have heard of it – Taco Bell.
I got to break out my Tacos: Nature's Sandwiches shirt for G's birthday today. Awesome!
A California man is attempting to review every taco in Los Angeles. And here I thought I was something of a taco connoisseur.
We have to say farewell to an American institution. The last Chi Chi's Mexican Restaurant has closed its doors. Yes, the first place I ever enjoyed the greatness of the Crispy Beef Taco Dinner is no more. Damn.
