Let's be real: Tuesdays are rough. Mondays at least have the excitement of a new week, and by Wednesdays, the weekend is in sight again. Tuesdays are just the useless day in between. Which may explain why Taco Tuesday is such a hallowed tradition — something fun on the worst day of the week. Of course, the fact that it's a weekly excuse to eat tacos could explain a lot, too.
While you don't need a lot to observe Taco Tuesdays (besides, of course, tacos), that doesn't mean you can't covet a few fun kitchen buys to make it even better. Here are three Amazon finds that will totally upgrade the best food-themed night of the week.
1. KidsFunwares TriceraTACO Holder, $12
Did dinosaurs celebrate Taco Tuesday? We may have to leave that question up to the paleontologists to answer. But while we wait on that, we can enjoy this far-from-ordinary taco holder. It can hold two hard-shell tacos, keep the toppings from falling out during assembly or between bites, and it won't judge you for eating meat, despite the fact that Triceratops were herbivores.
2. Taco Dish Towel, $12
A bit more useful than a dino taco holder, this dish cloth can make you smile seven days a week, not just on Tuesdays. It's also from Amazon's Handmade store, where all goods are certified handmade by artisans all over the country.
3. Dragons Love Tacos, $12
The verdict on dinosaurs and tacos may still be out, but this book gives a clear answer on where fire-breathing animals stand on the food. Even if you don't have kids, we think this book makes an adorable host gift alongside a jar of your favorite salsa. (Just don't let the dragons get the salsa — you'll have to read the book to find out why.)
