Fleetwood Mac Tusk the hard taco (with the soft heart)

Tusk is Fleetwood Mac’s follow up to the famous beyond famous Rumours. I mean how do you follow Rumours? Even they must have known that the personal relationship turmoil that happened behind the scenes had turned into magic liquid gold that coats your inner so intensely yet with such a soft caress. Like a lover who might not be so good in the long run but is o so good right now.
Although Tusk tackles the love battle it does it in a very different way. Its an experiment more than an album, but produces some fantastic freaking songs.
I think the Ledge might actually be my favourite song on the album but today we are going to talk about the song that is named after the AlbumThe creative, the crazy, the brilliant marching band infused Tusk.

Why don’t you ask him what’s going on?Why don’t you ask him who’s the latest on his throne?Don’t say that you love me!Just tell me that you want me!Tusk!Just say that you want meJust tell me that you

This song is so deep, a bit backhanded and you feel that relationship moment. You are done feeling sad and you are prepared for the answers you once could not bare to hear.
It is layered and layered. The sounds are layered, the lyrics are layered. The feeling are layered. The food that is  being called out is layered. Physically and mentally.

The Taco

This song craved something with flavour upon flavour and to me nothing does this more than a mexican influence. 
Tex Mex is legit its own thing and I think sometimes we forget how good it is. I like this with beans but my fella likes it with meat so I usually make both!

Black Bean Salad


Black Beans                        1 Can or 1.5 C prepared from dry

Franks Red Hot                   1 TBSP

Chili Powder                        ½ TBSP



Literally Chop It all up! 

Put it in a bowl and let it sit in the fridge for at least 30 Min but like a day and it’s even better!

Sometimes I smush the beans with the back of a fork but if I am lazy I just leave them whole. Your call my sweets!

Take it out of the fridge about an hour before serving to bring to room Temp

Brown the beef with the seasonings until it’s getting really caramelized.

  1. Awesome blog! Do you have any suggestions for
    aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

    1. I so am not the person to ask as I am just finding my footing myself, but I have a paid site (desilicious.ca) it’s just not working at the morning and from the advice that I got buying your own domain is the way to go!!

      Good luck can not wait to read it!!

  2. Long time reader, first time commenter — so,
    thought I’d drop a comment.. — and at the same time ask for a favor.

    Your wordpress site is very simplistic – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my small businesses site –also built in wordpress
    like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would
    appreciate any feedback)

    Keep up the good work– and take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

    on the web to learn more about the issue and found most people will go

    equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    about. Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something relating to this.

  5. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something
    to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to
    let you know. The design and style look great though!
    Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Cheers adreamoftrains web hosting
