It may not the kind of homecoming that everyone would enjoy, but the taco party that you had planned for your daughter was perfect. She goes to college 12 hours from home so flying home the weekend before Christmas is always a little hectic. She finishes up her finals, finds someone to take her to the airport so that she does not have to pay for parking at the airport while she is out of town, makes her way through ticketing and security, and goes through the boarding process and then the flight. And while she is always starving when she gets home, sometimes it is just too much work to take her out for eat.
The fact that making tacos or or other Mexican foods is just not that easy in the dorm made the taco party an easy decision. You were able to have all of the meat and beans cooked ahead of time and just staying warm in the crock pots. The tomatoes, onions, olives, and lettuce were cut ahead of time as well and ready to be served.
On this particular arrival the whole family was ready to get home anyway to make sure that you could watch the national championship volleyball game and eat a delicious meal all at once. A meal at home also meant that her friends, who are just as excited to see your daughter as you are, could also stop by. Something that really is not that easy if you are at a crowded restaurant.
