Pregnant Goldfish and Taco Seasoning

I’d be willing to bet you that you couldn’t guess what the top search term was on the blog the other day. Any guesses? I seriously doubt you will guess this. Unless your guess involves fishes. And baby fishes.

Here it is…”how to tell when a goldfish is pregnant”. Seriously? LOL. Why would you think I would know when a goldfish is pregnant?! Little fact about myself: I have never owned a fish in my life. I once wanted a fish, but I think my mom said it would get smelly  or something. Or that could have possibly been when I asked for a turtle. I was/am a HUGE animal lover.

Well are you interested in finding out how to tell when a goldfish is pregnant? I feel slightly obligated since it was the top search term. After a little research, I have found that, like humans, their bellies swell. You can also usually see lumps in their tummies from the eggs, and their tummies are a slightly lighter color due to the stretching. So there you go goldfish lovers. Your little lesson on how to tell if your goldfish is pregnant.

Now that we have that cleared up, let’s talk food, shall we? I made some a taco seasoning mix. As you may know, I love mexican and southwest flavors. Hello? Remember my taco salad, Mexican Lasagna, the salsa I made for SRCMexican flair wraps, Spanish rice, or the Cheesy Chicken tortilla bake? I think I’ve proved my point. I love mexican food and flavors. So here we go, super simple. Just mix up these spices right here, rub them on some chicken and cook it, or you can mix it into some brown rice to flavor it up a bit. Be creative! You can even use it on oven baked fries to give them a little mexican flair.
