Taco Tuesday Recipe

I'm not sure if this taco soup recipe came from my Aunt Sharon or Lori in the Big D or if gran passed it down. I am sure that it will tickle your taste buds. 


1lb ground beef
1 mdm onion
1 16 oz can kidney beans
1can pinto beans
1can corn
1 24 oz can diced tomatoes
1 can green chiles
1pkg taco seasoning

Cook beef and onion and then add other ingredients.
Don't drain beans

Top your soup with shredded cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips.

A great change of pace from your regular Tuesday tacos.

Yahtzee Baby!!!

I think it was a Homer Simpson because the pitcher just went...Doh!!!
If you're a little slow on the uptake Jack a roo hit his first career jimmy jack on Saturday.
Katy Spartans won both games on Saturday but couldn't pull through today's first game. The only honor in being one and done today is the fact that we lost to the eventual champion of the tournament. Here's to playing longer on Sundays.

Only picture I could get of these turkeys all together...

What could be more relaxing than sipping Sophia out of a can lounging in our jumpers on  vacation?

Do it yourself

homemade cork craft skills required.
these are my favorite crafts to do plus it was pretty cheap compared to buying a new one.

items needed:
old picture frame
can of spray paint/optional
cork board...duh
ring clips

we painted the picture frame white with spray paint we already had...

ring clips secure the cork on back. our cork was too thick so we had to use these to hold the cork in place. luckily, mark already had the clips from a screw caddy that betty mcneill gave him for christmas 11 years ago!

 any craft store sells cork in different sizes. i saved money by using hobby lobby's 40% off coupon.

ryan's new cork board
she loves it and we love that it only cost $12.00 to make.

What happened to my nest's?

So last weekend I actually made the birds nest breakfast cups that I saw on my new addiction...Pinterest. They look so good who wouldn't want to make them. 
Here's the picture that sucked me in

I followed the directions to a T and for some reason mine didn't turn out quite like that.

Here's my version of the nests...

I will have to say that they tasted better than they looked. I will give these a second try and using less hash browns may be the trick. Click here for this little birdie's recipe if you feel up to the challenge.
