Welcome the Neighbors Tacos with Seitan and Kale, Quinoa

 We have very nice new neighbors who are taking over living in my parents' home. They moved in today - they have two children, a baby and a child just a little older than my daughter. To help welcome them, we offered, and they accepted a home cooked meal brought over to them.
My wife doesn't like Mexican food (I do!), but I had some taco shells that I brought over from my parents' house as I was cleaning it out. I sauteed some onion and seitan, adding kale when the seitan was browned. I cooked the kale down just for a few minutes, then added corn kernels off of a cob, and cooked another minute or so, carmelizing the sugars in the corn and making the kernels a bright orange. I served in taco shells, leaving hot sauce and guacamole to be added as desired at the table. Some quinoa and raw vegetables rounded out the meal.

I think that everybody enjoyed the meal. We're lucky to have such nice new neighbors!
