Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Taco Pot Pie

What a fun twist on a couple of favorites here in the SFFS house. Taco! In pie form! Tacos and pie! This was really good....IT Guy LOVED it...and really easy. You can use your own homemade crust or to make it even easier, use store bought pie crust. This is great hearty meal that comes together in a flash. And seriously....who doesn’t love tacos?
