Try These!

Uncooked tortillas - flour or corn (we found them next to the pre-shredded cheeses!)
1/2 pound of ground beef
1/2 packet taco seasoning
1 can of white beans
1 can of black beans
2 tomatoes, chopped (or use canned)
shredded cheese

Brown burger with taco seasoning mix. Add both cans of beans and tomatoes, cook until liquid slightly thickens (it will still be quite runny). Cook tortillas in butter according to package directions. Spread about 1/2 cup of bean mixture over tortilla and top with guacamole and salsa and shredded cheese if desired, fold in half and enjoy!

The lady I'm staying with enjoyed these at her sister-in-law's house and recreated them at home on her health food kick! I've never seen tortillas that you cook yourself, but they are really yummy.

This recipe is super simple, tasty, and good for you! I love that combination. :)

House Cleaning

I'm house cleaning - on my blog. I didn't intend to, it just happened. I haven't been happy with the look ever since I changed it months ago. The graphics weren't as sharp as they looked before uploading, but I hadn't got around to fixing it. It's been bothering me. Really bothering me. I don't like things that aren't decoratively correct.

I kind of stumbled upon the current look, and at the moment I like the fact that it is more streamlined and utilitarian. Mostly though, it was simple and I didn't have to worry about trying to get a silly banner all lined up and centered.

What do you think? Is it okay for now but I should find a look that is a little more elegant? Or as long as I start putting in a little more content it doesn't matter what it looks like?

Happy Friday!


(Friday used to be our big cleaning day when I was growing up, so today was perfect for cleaing up the blog.)

Keeping Life Real

The other morning I was up early brushing my teeth when I heard a weird noise that sounded ominous. I tensed and paused to listen, and then I realized............

It was my stomach growling. Growling is right, I honestly thought for a moment some animal was hiding in the bathroom about to attack.

That is the cold hard truth.
